This is my salad......

Without it I am nothing. Without me my salad is nothing.

So I have been pretty diligent about my caloric intake these last two weeks. I try not to go over 1650. I must confess I haven't been anywhere near the gym (which I partially blame on the BF. I believe he threw away both of my IPODs in the move process) But I've been kick ass about what I put in my mouth. Everyday I track my food on and realize that I don't eat nearly enough fruits and vegetables. Mainly veggies. It's not that I hate them. It's just that I kinda "forget" to incorporate them into my meals.

So I introduce to you the big ass lunch salad. It helps, and keeps me full longer than anything else I would have chose to eat instead, and I filled it with all my faves: grilled chicken breast, tomatoes, cucumbers, Saladena's Mediterranean Feta Cheese Crumbles and Kraft Fat Free Italian dressing.. I am known for demolishing a healthy salad with loads of dressing, but I nabbed the kraft light packets from work last night and 4 packets is still ONLY 60 calories!!! How hot is that. I paired it with a 1/4 c. of blueberries and a Quaker True Delight Toasted Coconut Banana Macadamia Nut Bar (Gotta try them they are to DIE for) and with all that being said my lunch was only 454 calories.


  1. MMM...looks good! I love salads!!! If only I had them more often...LOL.

  2. love the lunch salad. and LOVE the background of your site as to explore.


  3. Yummmm!!!!!! I think that's a great idea and you're doing the right thing by incorporating those veggies!
