Gorgeous Salad day!

Monday, June 24, 2013

Time to get tracking my food. So far so good. Trying to get more vegetable based around here. Decided to plan a new salad each week this summer to make sure there is a 'green' choice on all those grilling nights, instead of just baked beans, chips, and a macaroni or potato salad. I will plan ahead!

Last night I made a green salad with almonds, a few croutons, and dried cranberries. For lunch I added a few croutons, tomato and a little cheese with a Vidalia onion dressing.

Bought a kit at Sam's: Garden Vegetable Chopped Salad that I'll mix up tonight. Broccoli, cauliflower, red cabbage, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, carrots and crumbled bacon with a slaw dressing. Sounds good to me!

Just wish we had more sunny days this month. Rainy and foggy makes me want to head for comfort foods instead of green ones.

    I love eating salads but hate making them. I've learned to put together a big batch and keep it in a plastic container so I can just grab a handful and add to it. Sometimes it will be tuna or hard-boiled egg (or both), or leftover chicken or even taco meat. I don't know why I have such a mental block about making salads, though~

Great idea to plan ahead and have it available for those grilling nights!

    I know what you mean! I put on my hoodie when I went for a walk yesterday. It was so grey and yucky looking, but I got outside and it was like 70 degrees. The grey makes me want comfort foods but it's warm out. But anyway, I think you're doing great! Planning ahead really helps.
