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...


  1. Why on earth would you want to stop eating almond butter out of the jar? Haha!

  2. Its only bad when a co-worker walks in and catches me doing it :)
