Confession: prior to macro counting and we were salad haters. To be fair, I didn’t know how to construct a good salad. Funny what you learn when you get deep into a cut- you want the most macro bang for your buck! Also worth noting... I’m an embarrassingly fast eater and cabbage is really hard to eat fast, so this is a filling winner! Strongly recommend adding cheese to this- I’ve tried goat and feta!
