When I was a child, we grew up eating salads at almost every meal, and this simple Portuguese salad was a go-to. No matter what we were having, it wasn’t a complete meal until someone added a big old bowl of salad to serve at the table. I love that my mom instilled healthy eating habits like salads at a young age. To me, food brings people and a family together. I’m grateful that home cooked meals with the family all together at the table was a nightly occurrence growing up. I hope to have the same routine with Sage as she grows up and we all eat at the dinner table together and connect over delicious healthy food!
