I like vegetables!

Ok, not all vegetables...but I made a salad for lunch today that is so rockin' I had to share it.


I know that doesn't look that appetizing but it actually IS. No one is more surprised than me right now. And it was really easy. Ty grilled the chicken so all I had to do was throw together the veggies and dressing.
  • spinach
  • walnuts
  • cucumbers
  • carrot
  • 1 piece of grilled chicken
  • homemade red wine vinaigrette
I made the vinaigrette with red wine vinegar, olive oil and Garlic Gold Italian Herb Nuggets - you have to get some of that! And I'm loving nuts in my salads, yesterday I had slivered almonds and sunflower seeds on the salad I made at the Martin's salad bar - it's kind of hard to get those last few sunflowers seeds out of the container with a fork.

It's Day 2 of our "cleanse" and all is well. It's really not as hard to eat healthy as I make it out to be, especially if I plan ahead and don't keep tempting foods around. I'm not even missing the cheese on this salad! But I know some feta would amp up the awesome if I had it :)

Now if I can just stop eating this almond butter right out the jar...
