a green salad



“In Him the enslaved find redemption, the guilty pardon, the unholy renovation;
In Him are everlasting strength for the weak, unsearchable riches for the needy,
treasures of wisdom and knowledge for the ignorant, fullness for the empty”
–The Valley of Vision

Ahhh what a relief! I’ve been so busy lately with freelance work, creating recipes, photo shoots, school, running errands and grocery shopping, but with all the hustle and bustle there is an overwhelming peace I have knowing God is sovereign. He is faithful and His word says, “…being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ…” (Philippians 1:6). God is GOOD!


A green salad is a current staple in my diet these days. I started to eat raw cheese after being vegan (plus honey) for over three years. In order to better digest the cheese and not gain 20 pounds, I try to incorporate it with tons of veggies. Also, it’s always been a struggle for me to eat salads in the winter because they’re cold. However, the fresh crisp veggies and the hearty warming cheese make for a perfect combination that I crave! I recently made a similar salad for a friend of mine, and she loved it! Now she and her husband call it a celess, or a lettuce less salad : )

Green Salad
1 1/2 heads celery
3 granny smith apples
2 c raw cheddar cheese (cubed)
3 kale leaves
1/3 c extra virgin olive oil
1 t Celtic Sea salt

Place chopped celery and apples, ribbons of kale, and cheese in a mixing bowl. Toss with olive oil and salt and you’re done!

  1. That looks wonderful! The varied green colors make it look even more appealing. I keep hoping that someday I will develop a liking for celery, but it hasn’t happened yet! haha ;)

  2. Lexie, both refreshing and so filling! I have something like it almost every day. Let me know what you think if you choose to try it!

  3. I absolutely love your blog and your photographs!!! What kind of gear do you use? I usually use a 50mm 1.4 canon but your shots are SO CLEAR!! are you shooting macro?

    Lots of love to you!! xo

  4. Linda: Thank you! Starting with my August 24th post and on, I used my very basic Canon Rebel XT with a 50mm f/1.4 lens. My camera is currently at the Canon “hospital”, but I hope to upgrade to better camera body soon anyway. I always shoot manual, with diffused natural light, and with an aperture of 1.4 or close. Hope that answers your question!
