I'm obsessed with salads. Beth and Bitch Cakes both talk about salad a lot, and I wanted to do my own little homage to them.
I try to eat a huge salad every day if possible. I thought I'd take you all through my typical salad!
I buy these huge boxes of salad, and try to go through one a week!
This is how much salad I put on the plate. I pile it up really high. This is a full size dinner plate.
Then I cut the salad into little pieces so it lays nice and low and flat. This way I can pile on a ton of veggies and eat bite sized pieces without any problems!
I cut up cucumber, bell peppers (here orange and yellow,) mushrooms, and a little bit of tomato. Usually I'll put avocado on there too but the ones I bought aren't quite ripe yet.
Then I cut up lunch meat - chicken or turkey, and also put a bit of shredded cheddar.
On a side note, I got a new t-shirt from Target a few days ago, and I LOVE it. I'm obsessed with trees and birds (getting a half sleeve tattoo in October that will prove that point...) - and this shirt is awesome. It says "Let love grow." :) I've gotten to the point where I'm tucking shirts into my jeans and it feels fantastic. I'll be back with a weigh in on Wednesday!
Want the salad, love the t-shirt, and you are rockin' those bangs. All yummy.
Gotta love salads and they have to be bite size when I eat them too..no messing around just enjoyment
You look GREAT woman!! I need to up my salad intake for sure- the spring mix is def my fav!
OMG! I picked up that very shirt at Target and told Alex I wanted it!!! Hilarious.
I also had an awesome salad tonight - goat cheese, fresh blueberries, and walnuts. So gooooood!!
Great salad, great tee!
And great job on your success!
I really need to follow your lead and eat one salad a day. I'm proud of you girl!
My god you are looking SKINNY! Clearly the no carbs works for you.
I love Tossed and Pax in America for their big salads - not cheap, but I learnt how to make salads that aren't just lettuce, cucumber and tomato!
We have ours with pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries.
Oh my heavens you look amazing girl! Like I haven't told you that before. Haha.
I would be so scared to eat a salad that big with all the yummy stuff on it, but it apparently works! Maybe my lettuce and a drizzle of dressing isn't cutting it anymore?
You look amazing, chica!!!
I am also a lover of ginormous, savory salads! I am just horrid at making them for myself cuz I feel like a dolt for making 2 meals. Occasionally, the hubs and Drama Llama will dig in on the salad idea...but my boys think I have lost my mind if a salad is ALL we eat...regardless of the fact it could feed the Roman legion. >.>
Oh I love birds and trees too- ADORABLE shirt!
That salad looks yummy. I'm not a big bell pepper fan, but that looks really tasty!
Diet is great. Pictures are great. Salad is great. 1/2 Sleeve tattoo... Great today, still with you as a Grandma... Not so great///
I miss salad! That looks so good. These days I have stopped eating lettuce because I can taste the dirt...even after I wash it. Ah... pregnancy! LOL!
have not read your blog in awhile... you are sort of skinny...like people will start asking you why you are dieting at all! Salads- sometimes I copy Panera.. I like to add pecans or olives...not so crazy about fruit...love Paul Newman's non-fat light Asian Sesame Ginger dressing... (I think that's what it is called... what a name.)
My biggest problem with salads are the dressings. I guess I need to go back to dunking! I agree with everyone - you look fantastic.
What is a half-sleeve tattoo?
