Thanks jacqui and I hope it is going well where you are.

Kat, my big guy is on Warfarin also, it drives me a little nuts trying to even out the cruciferous veggies to help keep that in line. These powerful drugs beat the hell out of heart attacks, however.   So-- if you exercise a lot, your blood gets thinner on you? Wonder if you are chugging a lot of water at those times, that would dilute/thin the blood a bit. ?

Come on Spring, come on Farmer's Market, come help us get through this battle, we're getting tired of carrots and California lettuce!!!

That said, here's a winter twist on Chef's Salad that helps a mite with the salad boredom factor. Necessity forced me to "invent" it though probably I'm the last person in the world to figure it out.

Italian Chef's Salad (my apologies to real Italians)
Over a bed of Mixed lettuce (Romaine and some iceberg or leaf lettuce, whatever.)
Slivered bell pepper
Slivered red onion
Grated carrot
Julienned ham & provolone or other white cheese
Chopped pepperoni slices (first saute til hot in a small pan, blot, cool)
Chopped yellow peppers (pepperoncini?) bottled or fresh if you got 'em
Sprinkling of sunflower seeds (or croutons if you're a Carb person)
Sprinkling of red pepper flakes unless you're a sissy

Dress with olive oil infused with garlic & vinegar, or a bottled Creamy Italian, or whatever.
