When I first met the King he was a vegetarian. This meant that the main staples of his diet were cheese pizza and oreos. He would occasionally eat Indian food to count vegetable samosas as a serving of vegetables. He was also starting to come around to the concept of salads at that time, thanks to a place called Chop't where they chop everything in the salad into bite size pieces so that the king is able to elegantly eat a salad and not make a mess (something he avoids at all costs-when eating).
Upon visiting the royal family last week, my sister and I discussed the male diet and how they avoid fruits and vegetables as much as possible. Why is that? Maybe it's because they take too much time and effort to prepare? Neither of us seemed to be able to answer that question. I also discussed men's fruit-eating habits with my sister, where we came to the conclusion that the only "manly" fruits are apples, bananas, and orange juice (if that even counts as a fruit).
When it comes down to it, the King has come around to my way of eating-except on the fruit front. But, I'll keep trying. The following is a salad that we eat in our house at least twice a month during the summer months and the King has claimed he would eat it more often if I prepared it.
I skip the lettuce cups, use store bought rotisserie chicken and make this into The King's Fave Salad.
With asiago focaccia and a glass of wine, it was perfect for this humid 94 degree day. No need to even turn on the oven!
