Formerly known as The Atlantic Monthly.
The article was in the Health section of the online edition of this magazine.
It seems, Luke Saunders, a young entrepreneur invented the salad machine-(vending machine.)
The article delves into the premise that if we have the same amount of dollars to spend on fast food
or a healthy salad that were both available to us in the same amount of time,
would we spend the dollars on healthy salads or turn to the comfort of a hamburger.
Super interesting and an article that definitely provides "food for thought," no pun intended...wink...

The Dreadful Inconvenience of Salad.
In the meantime, I have a super great salad to share with you that is full of healthy ingredients,
and is great alone or along side your baked potato or entree.
And since we have had a very wicked snow and ice storm in Dallas this weekend, this is the
salad we will be having this evening-too slick to venture out.
Kishu Mandarin Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette
12 cups leaf lettuce torn into bite size pieces
4 Kishu Mandarin Oranges
10 Champagne Tomatoes
Handful of dried cranberries
2 Tablespoon chopped walnuts
1-2 ounce Feta cheese (optional)
Salt and Pepper
Ken's Balsamic Vinaigrette ( fan of Ken's Dressings)
Wash lettuce and spin dry, tear into bite size pieces and place in large salad bowl
Peel Kishu Mandarin Oranges and pull apart segments
Slice Champagne Tomatoes in half

Add cranberries, walnuts and feta cheese, toss all ingredients together, salt and pepper to taste.
Now, seriously would you buy a salad from a vending machine-
