Back to Basics: Salad

I make my breakfast and lunch ahead of time every week, so I don't have to think about what to have to eat.  This keeps me on track to make better food choices.  Instead of making one salad to last me the entire week for lunch, I decided that I would make a new salad every day this week.  Call it my super convenient salad bar.  Sunday night I boiled some eggs and chopped up mushrooms, red bell peppers, cucumber and broccoli and bagged them individually.  I also picked up some bagged salad.  This will be the basic salad all week.  I can change it up every day by adding leftovers like chicken or steak or BACON!  I can also add dried cranberries, walnuts, almonds, fresh herbs from the garden or deli meat.  The possibilities are endless!

What is your favorite kind of salad??


  1. With such a hectic schedule, this is definitely an area I need to improve on.

  2. I find that when I plan my meals ahead of time, I am less likely to stray to bad choices....that didn't stop me from my ice cream last night, but at least my meals were healthy. LOL!
