It is definitely wonderful that you are getting a meal of protein plus salad into you smile That is very important for everybody to do! Salads can be SO tasty if you keep basic salad ingredients in the house.

I like to have bagged lettuce, olives, bacon bits and dressing as my base. Our garden is now creating TONS of mini tomatoes that are SO delicious. I highly recommend that every one of you get a little tomato plant for your window. They are super easy to care for and you get oodles of fresh red tomatoes for FREE. Fully organic too smile

In addition I buy cheap cheddar cheese, shredded, in white and yellow varieties. I mix them together and put them into a ziplock bag. That way I can shake that out over the top - calcium is good for you, and the salad is extra tasty.

It only takes maybe 5 minutes total to make my salad from start to finish and it really is quite tasty!

We should all try to eat a salad every day, they are so good for your body smile

Work is so intense for me; I'm in at 0730 and stay until 5pm most days. I eat at my desk, because getting out and getting food is just so time consuming. So I bring food, and I'm fine with the same thing every day. Here's today's menu:

Breakfast is my big meal. Fat-free plain yogurt, a Tbsp of fruit (fresh blueberries this week) a Tbsp of ground flaxseed, and Kashi GoLean mixed in.

A sandwich baggie of raw broccoli florets for snacking; NO dip.

Spinach salad with tomatoes and chickpeas and Newman's Own Light Balsalmic Vinaigrette.

1 C homemade Hot and Sour soup.

3L of water, plus who knows how much black coffee.

Dinner might be spaghetti or zuchini parmesan, or a turkey sandwich on homemade 4-grain bread.

That sounds great, healthy and balanced Trish!! Good for you!

Spinach is just SO good for you - and so are tomatoes!

I got a pint of blueberries myself this week - normally I don't eat them but they are SO full of antioxidants that I'm trying to get myself to eat more of them ...

Blueberries go down real easy when topped with a scoop of ice cream! Yogurt works, too. I also like them in my oatmeal, tossed into a salad or mixed with sliced peaches.

I didn't think of adding them onto my salad! I'll give that a try today, thanks!

So far I've been really good about having at least one meal each day being salad/veggies. I am keeping a running salad bowl and adding new stuff to it each day, including chicken, tuna, beans, walnuts, cranberries, cheese and spices, besides the various shredded veggies and leafy greens.

I also found some dissolvable fiber that i add to my coffee and red wine each day. I have some flax seed that i need to grind up too.

I am trying to have at least a little low carb yogurt with each breakfast as well.

That is awesome Jilly! I just ran out of salad fixings today (the main salad bag core of it). I really missed my salad! Bob's still on his shake diet because his tooth gets pulled on Tuesday so I'm sort of on my own.

I'm going to have some yogurt right now. Which is really a good step for me because I used to hate yogurt, and now I actively think about it when I get snackish ...

I do take 2 chewable fiber tablets every day, they're great and orange flavored. I did just run out of my chewable Centrum vitamins, I need to look around to see if I have another container somewhere ...

Okay, lotsa salads for dinners, plus yesterday I tired a Stouffer's frozen spinach souffle. It was pretty good but needs to make nuked for longer than they suggest on the box to taste right. or maybe b/c i live at elevation it needed more time.

Anyway it's high in protein and has 8 net carbs per serving and is tasty. No trans fats. we don't let trans fats in the house.

I am so craving a salad. I did make a tuna fish salad with my fresh cherry tomatoes yesterday, that was great. I want a real green salad though. Hopefully tonight we can get out and get some greens. I had a salmon Healthy Choice frozen dinner last night which was pretty tasty.
