We're having salad too, with some chopped turkey on top! I'm sick of rich food right now, even though I tried not to overeat the past few days.

I adore tuna salad. Usually I just have tuna on its own, and I often forget to add fresh salady things to it. I'll have to remember to do that more often!

Right now my remaining greens in the fridge are slimy. Hmph. Time for some fresh ones!

I like to take fruit salad mostly in my diet plan.Fruit salad is a dish consisting of various kinds of fruit, served in a liquid, either in their own juices or a syrup.When served as an appetizer or as a dessert. In different forms fruit salad can be served as an appetizer, a side-salad, or a dessert.

Roselinda -

It's a good idea to look at the syrup that's in the salad. In many cases that syrup is all high fructose corn syrup, which would be good to not ingest!

I love salad with some olive oil and raw apple cider vinegar or olive oil and lemon juice and some Greek seasonings. Better than commercial salad dressing!

Today I tried the Japanese Cucumber Salad from the Biggest Loser Flavors of the World cookbook. I had made it yesterday and it marinated overnight.

It was so vinegary I couldn't eat it without modification. I had to add in soy sauce, ginger, and white pepper before it began to taste OK.

Not a good sign about this cookbook ...

I'm finishing off the Biggest Loser cucumber recipe I made back on the 11th, and reminded again of how strange these cookbooks are. This thing is SWIMMING in agave nectar, i.e. sugar. Blech.

What are you eating tonight?

Dear Connie in fact I'm having that dressing right now on top of spinach. I love the dressing, and the spinach is full of nutrients.

It takes about 10 minutes to make, and you make it in bulk so then it's ready in the fridge for you.

Lettuce is good! That sounds like a great salad.

I just had bag-lettuce (with carrot slivers and such) with some cucumbers in soy sauce. It was a quite nice afternoon salad.

Yup start every meal with a salad! That's a tasty way to prepare your stomach, and give it something healthy to fill part of it with.

I ate out for lunch yesterday and began with a lovely salad. I then had salmon with broccoli and only ate half of that, so I took the other half home. So the salad helped me to be comfortably full, and meant I had a delicious snack for later.

I try to have a salad before lunch and dinner. Especially with salad-in-a-bag, it is incredibly easy to do.

That sounds delicious, Jilly - well done!

Yesterday I got a foot long Subway while out doing some mall walking / pedometer testing so I ate half for lunch after the tests and then half for dinner. So really that was all I ate all day besides my morning shake.

Hopefully I can have a salad today, I'm not sure what shape our salad mix is in.

I bought some planted cilantro last night, actually. I had some of that in my chicken sammy, along with some herbs and fresh romaine I plucked out of the garden. YUM. With some mayo and garlic and nutritional yeast.

I really love the yeast. I put it on practically everything these days.

My greens are growing great in my garden, but all i have been eating lately is whole wheat bagel thins with butter and marmite. And cold beans or cold soup. I am feeling happy, though. Which is odd, considering what else is going on. I think it's the research projects that are keeping me buoyed up.

I need to remember to walk outside and pick some darn greens with my bagels!

I did have oatmeal, yogurt, fruit and spices today, though. That's got to count for something.

Dear Debbie -

Chicken salad sounds great, and the lettuce and tomatoes are delightful veggies too. I don't eat enough chicken salad; I should try to find a store around here that carries it in their deli area.

I had a free dinner at a new class tonite, and there was salad greens, carrots and tomatoes with balsmic vinaigrette. Also I had two little french bread type rolls with two little chicken legs. Unfortunately the legs were encrusted with breading. But i feel good abut getting in some meat and salad.

I'd like to stay home and have some of my produce tomorrow. We will see what happens.

Dear Jilly -

Right now it's great that you're eating fairly balanced meals with protein and greens in them - don't sweat the small stuff like breading!

I had my traditional veggie salad for lunch today. I'm now pondering dinner.

I'd like to open up a lettuce bag that I got from the food pantry and cook up some of the kielbasa that came in with it. I might also cook up some peppers they gave me.

I think the key will be actually cooking this before i get hungry.

This thread inspired me to do better tonite. I actually sort of made something. I ate a big lettuce bowl with some heated up kielbasa. Mustard on top with some sesame dressing. Then olive loaf bread with brie.

I ate too much bread and brie, but the big bowl of lettuce was a good step.

Last night at class there was salad and pizza. So at least I got in some salad.

The other night I had two avocados with salsa, parmesan cheese and mayo on thin whole wheat bread, and some salad with balsamic dressing.

It's really hard for me to work on my nutrition right now. frown There is so much to do here.

baby steps, I know.

You are doing fantastically Jilly - those are some great meals! Think of some of the things you used to eat, and be amazed at the improvements!

I'm enjoying a very veggie salad for dinner with olives and tomatoes. Bob did get me salad mix after all smile

What are you all enjoying tonight? Something healthy I hope!

Thanks, Lisa. That is true; it's better than just top ramen, tortillas with butter, or just bread and cheese.

Today I had a half an avocado with half a large tomato, open faced on super thin whole grain bread, almost like a cracker. With mayo and turkey slices. a hunk of hard cheese on the side with some clear broth and seltzer water.

Nothing really bad, there. But no fruit, unless you count the avocado. I don't really know what category avos fall into. They aren't sweet, but are technically a fruit. Tomatoes are technically fruit too. Oh well.

It was my only meal of the day, as I got busy and forgot to eat. No decaff even, just some water. Bad me.

I might have some red wine later tonite but right now am happy with the lime seltzer. Wait! Lime is a fruit! wink

Lime is a fruit Jilly (and tomatoes & avocado)!

I started making a kale salad for dinner; cleaned the kale, cut it, squeezed lemon juice on, sprinkled on a little seasoned pepper and some complete seasoning by Badia. It was so good, I ate it like that with a serving of carrots.

Feeling really good since I also enjoyed a greek salad (very little feta, added sundried tomatoes) w/balsamic vinaigrette for lunch.

For breakfast, fruit salad.

Mid-morning snack, 2 tablespoons of tuna salad w/cilantro, red onions, lime juice, a table spoon of mayo and 12 tortilla chips (no bread - no gluten).

Yay! A really good day and two 30 minute workouts. Really feeling good.

Free salad is a great thing!

I'm having my very veggie salad today with the Newman balsamic dressing. I am finding fewer and fewer snowpeas in my very veggie mixes. I think there were only two in the entire bag this time. Sheesh! They are heading towards false advertising with that smile

I love my classes with the free dinners. It's so nice to always have yummy salad, and a hot entree and some fruit. That makes at least two salads a week while class is ongoing.

What are you guys having? Share your ideas!

Jilly-

I want to be more accountable for my green intake. Maybe I should chime in more often. Just noticed that day where I had 4 salads in one day. It was a fluke. Yet, I really enjoyed it and noticed I had way more energy than the days that followed with more sugar and gluten.

Today, I made a green smoothie (with 2 huge handfuls of spinach) and tonight I enjoyed a salad.

Dear Yvonnie -

Salads are definitely tasty and good for you!

My "lunch" salad (i.e. the one I'm eating right now) is fairly large. I have a large bowl that's 8.5" across (I just measured it) that I fill with greens. I don't squish them down, but that's a fair amount. Then I add in tomatoes, olives, and I sprinkle cheese on top. So that is my entire meal and it definitely fills me up.

Part of it is I'm so incredibly busy right now. These college courses ate up a TON of time. So I don't feel like I have time to cook or anything. This way I just dump a bag of salad into a bowl, toss on a few items, and I am done. I can just eat while I work.

SaladWorks is a nice little salad eatery nearby. Just had a harvest salad with all sorts of little goodies in it for lunch! Sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, dried apple chips, roasted corn, micro greens, turkey cubes...so yummy.

Yvonnie, what else do you put into your green smoothie?

Hi Lori-

It varies, but my quick and easy go to is: 2 hands full of spinach and few leafs of kale, a frozen banana, soy or almond milk, a little raw honey, and a dash of vanilla.

It's really yummy and creamy.

When I have a little more time I prefer juicing my greens with green apples and grapefruits.

Everything else seems to take a little bit longer (especially because I feel the need to cleanup immediately after preparing).

laugh I'm doing it! I'm enjoying Baby Romaine, cherry tomatoes, kalamata olives, a dash of garlic salt and fresh squeezed lime juice. The salad is the main course. I'm also having black bean dip and red hot blues on the side.

dinner was a caprese salad with basil from the garden, tomatoes, avos and mozz cheese. Cracked pepper, garlic, olive oil and balsamic. Two small slices of high grain bread.

Yummm. I could eat this every day.

Last night i had another caprese salad, this time with no avos or bread. I just had more components of the basic three ingredients.

Now i need to wait for my basil to grow back in, so i have to make do with something else for my next salad. Maybe wild greens, garden fennel/yarrow, tomatoes and yucca petals.

I need to gather the last yucca petals before they are over for the year.

Well, 5/29 was my birthday and there wasn't a salad in sight. Just kidding. Actually I enjoyed the same salad as previously mentioned (baby romaine, radish tops, chrysanthemum greens, tomatoes, and olives tossed in lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, garlic salt & pepper.

Been doing a lot of stir fry since then.

Today, though, I ate a caesar salad (no chicken). Yum.

I made a salad with baby spinach, romaine, baby bella mushrooms and red onions. Going to have it for lunch tomorrow with roasted red peppers, feta cheese and a little bit of steak with Newman's light balsamic dressing.

It was going to be dinner but time got away while I was cooking!

Seriously i need help with salading. I buy whole produce and never cut it up until it's gone bad. I buy bagged lettuce and never open the bag until it's rotten inside. I can't keep buying food just to feed to my compost.

The best situation was when i was attending classes and there were salads available. That way i got salad twice a week.

I don't know what my problem is with salading at home!

Dear Jilly -

It is very hard to deal with whole produce. I would have the same problem.

I would try buying just one salad mix that you like. All you do is open it, dump it, and eat it. One step. Try just one and see if it works.

Everything comes down to optimizing your time for your own life. So whatever works for you is what you should do.

Yes, I should be able to buy whole heads of lettuce, and radishes, and so on, and chop them all up. But I simply don't. So I go with what actually does work for me.

Maybe I will simply go out a few times a week for salad and not even bother with the stress of dealing with produce. I just need to find a cheap salad somewhere. I am sure there are plenty of choices.

I usually have my salad for dinner. Here's one from two nights ago. Pile of mixed greens with 3 oz grilled organic chicken, carrots, mushrooms, avocado, heirloom tomatoes, celery, pepper jack cheese, and balsamic vinegar.



Today I had about 1/3 of that wrapped in a small tortilla with mustard instead of balsamic. So good!

Monica, love the picture!

My salad has romaine, iceberg, spinach, radicchio, English cucumbers, tomatoes, and Wishbone Light Raspberry Walnut Vinaigrette. I love that dressing! It's so pleasant tasting.

My lunch also has a Roasted Red Pepper and Spinach Chicken Sausage on a slice of sprouted grain bread. Dessert is half of a cup of blueberries with Greek yogurt.

I had a salad out at a lovely restaurant today. It had mixed greens, blue cheese, red onions, pecans, and raspberry vinaigrette. It was good, but the ones that you make sound better!

Grilled a steak and had it over cucumbers, spinach and grape tomatoes - a sprinkle of cheese (and for the cheese lover in me it was hard to keep it at a sprinkle) and balsamic vinegarette. Finished off the meal with ONE Healthy choice frozen yogurt. Those are hard to find, the website they were not going to be released nationwide til later in August, but our Walmarts carry them now.

I'm feeling healthy today.

I was better today - had my morning protein shake and then "only" was as bad as Triscuits and cheese for lunch. Still sluggy as a result. What did you guys have today? Tomorrow I get back to normal eating, which will be good.

I'm enjoying a delicious lowcarb salad with tomatoes cheese eggs olives and low-sugar Italian dressing. My boyfriend was sweet and made a tupperware of pre-cut eggs so I actually add them on now. What are you having? Anything tasty?

Yesterday I cheated and had a salad from Famous Dave's BBQ. It was a fried chicken salad. Fortuantely, they are kind of skimpy on the meat so it was mostly lettuce. It was yummy and I didn't even use all of the BBQ salad dressing they give you. Unfortunately, they do serve it with a corn muffin and I LOVE their corn muffins so...

It's funny how restaurants can take a salad and make it 1000 calories! Like I adore the quesidilla explosion salad at Chili's. That one is almost 1000. Could be the addition of the quesidilla's but they are so good!

Yesterday I had a green smoothie for lunch and a greek salad for dinner.

Today I'm making a collard salad and a kale salad. Both greens are hearty and hold well for a few days. So, I have lunch and dinner for the next two days.

Green smoothies, full of spinach, for breakfast, Yay!

I wanted to have a salad today, but all the lettuce at the market looked particularly gross, so we had zucchini roasted instead smile. My favorite salads though are mixed baby greens, carrots, tomatoes, cucumber, sometimes olives, a tiny bit of soy cheese, and a sprinkling of sunflower seeds or chopped walnuts with poppyseed dressing. Now I'm hungry lol.

Do you make your own dressing?

We are on Atkins in an attempt to drop some much needed weight. Our daily salads are either blue cheese wedges or mixed greens with taco meat.

I make maple syrup from two big maples in my yard. Last winter I overcooked a batch and it almost turned to maple sugar. So I put a spoonful of that thick grainy syrup into a batch of olive oil and balsamic dressing, and that little bit of maple flavor makes a delicious difference. I figure that the calories in a few drops of syrup in every bowlful of salad is almost negligible.

Lettuce with a little mayo and gorgonzola with freshly ground pepper. It's easy and a bit decadent, but I love this. We got some wonderful gorgonzola crumbles at Costco.

This thread continues to be helpful to me. I have been doing pretty well with having salad type dinners this month. This is such a great reminder to just start where I am and not worry about the past.

Dear Jilly -

That is absolutely true. Time spent worrying about the past is just more wasted time. The past is gone. Focus on doing the best you can with your current actions!

That is great that you're enjoying salads!

Enjoying very veggie salad while the winds how outside. What low carb food do you eat while Sandy approaches? Are you in its path? I'm in Massachusetts, so it's going "around" me, but we're still getting pummeled with the wind. It's already blown the top off our bird feeder.

I am having a salad for lunch for the second day in a row. I'm trying this again, I had salad yesterday and I was SO HUNGRY, by the time I got home for work a few hours later, I was tempted to snack the entire time I was making stir-fry for dinner....LOL...

I guess if I keep at it, soon I will not feel the need to eat a huge lunch, but still not be starved by dinner.

Dianne,

Not sure if you had protein in your salad, but I find that if I add hard boiled eggs or fish/chicken/meat to my salad, it keeps me full for longer periods of time.

I also add a coconut oil based salad dressing. Healthy saturated fats help to keep you satiated.
Hope this helps smile

Thanks Dr. Hershey,

I think that probably is my problem, I am such a meat eater and I'm trying to eat healthier. Not to say that meat isn't healthy, but I'm trying to put more greens into my diet. I definitely think you're on the right track for me. Perhaps trying to go cold turkey on not having it for lunch was probably too much - I actually had a little smoked turkey (really, no pun intended) with my salad today and I did a little better.

Many, many thanks for your input.

Yup definitely you need protein in your diet, no matter what diet plan you follow. So for example my morning shake has protein, and then my salad has cheese in it. It's of course important to have veggies / greens too! So if you're having a salad for lunch, finding a way to have protein in it is a good idea.

Has anyone tried the Salad Additions from Lean Cuisine, if so what do you think? I tried them and loved them, but I went to one website and so many people are bashing them. I thought they were good.

My main issue with them is the addition of color additives, sugar and they're high in sodium. Plus, I don't eat meat. But, health wise probably the main problem is what I mentioned about the additives.

The other problem to me is the cost. I can create those same additions, from scratch,with less additives and cost. But, having said all that, if you like them, and are okay with the nutritional issues and it helps you stick to your plan, who can ever say you're wrong?

Hmmm I haven't tried the Salad Additions - I think from what I see there that I'd be likely to steam edamame myself and use that, vs using one of their mixes. I'd prefer to use bits of fresh rotisserie chicken left over from dinner the night before; for me frozen chicken just isn't appealing. But we're all different! We all have different needs and different ways of getting salad into us.

My life has been so busy recently, I barely have time to fix dinner many nights.I think the rotissere chicken and fresh veggies sound amazing. Many of my current committments end in June - I will have finished preparing and presenting three training classes, my term will end as president of DCSHRM, and I will have finished studying and taken the PHR... then I can get back to my writing and marketing the way I have in my plans and start cooking healthy from scratch again.

Stephanie, I definitely agree it depends on one's circumstances. I have bought fresh, but it usually spoiled before I use it or before I used all of it - then it just became a costly waste.

For right now, the "cheating" by buying pre-packaged,over fresh lettuce serves two needs - it stops me from running across the street and grabbing a burger for lunch because it's convenient. Second, I've eaten more veggies this past week then I ever have.

All in good time... :-)

Dianne -

We just buy the rotisserie chicken pre-done at WalMart, steam some brussels sprouts in a bag, and are ready in 2 minutes. So this is completely "brainless" - I recommend it!

Hi Lisa. Tonight I made an Atkins recipe casserole. It was ham, broccoli, mozzarella cheese, green onions, and a whole bunch of eggs. We really liked it. We are eating Atkins right now so I am on the prowl for recipes. I'm a little tired of salad.

Lisa, I didn't like brussel sprouts before, but my kids did so I started eating them more. I really like them now. This does sound like a quick and easy meal.

Terri, that sounds yummy!

Given my recent stomach issues, I thought I would try a food that isn't too bad on the "return trip" so I tried a celery stick and a couple of carrots.

After a LOT of setbacks, my family agreed to go low-carb. We watched a video suggested by our former personal trainer (yes, we actually had one but for only a month!); it was called, "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" and I highly recommend it, too. Very inspiring, although he recommends a vegan--and not just low-carb--diet.

Anyway, we're off on our low-carb lifestyle. Last night, I made a warm lentil salad with oven-roasted veggies. Boiled and drained lentils. Chopped zucchini, onion, tomato, garlic cloves, green bell pepper, cauliflower, and mushrooms. Tossed with olive oil. Roasted until slightly carmelized. Mixed in the lentils and tossed with a homemade dressing of fresh lemon juice, olive oil, tomato juice, herbs, salt, pepper and a touch of honey. Served on Romaine lettuce leaves.

My DH and son did not miss the meat. I realized that instead of the dressing, I could add all of this into a small pot of chicken broth and make a delicious lentil and roasted vegetable soup.
