Salad of the Day

Salad Porn!
Close up of all the goodness.

One has to pack SOMETHING for lunch. Since I work nights really it's my "dinner" but I still call it lunch. You pack your lunch so I call it lunch. Here's what I took for "lunch" on Wednesday night.

carrots, celery, zucchini squash and more!
I LOVE to make salads when the weather is warm and sunny. Last year, by taking salads to work everyday I lost 10 pounds. The KEY is to add only a little bit of dressing and leave the bottle AT HOME!  You need a lot less than you think and if you can't add more you save yourself the temptation to do so. Periodically, when I have an extra yummy salad, I will share.  If you have a delicious salad combination-let me know! I would love to find new and exciting things to add!!

Goddess Dressing from Trader Joe's. YUM!

Salad Ingredients:

Leaf lettuce
string cheese cut into bite size pieces
couscous (adds fiber!)
zucchini squash (this veggie is amazing raw-did you know that?)
red cabbage

If I am making a juice to take to work to drink, as I'm preparing the veggies for that, I go ahead and cut some of them up for a salad. Even if I'm not ready to put my full salad together, I have ready the tin I like to use for packing my lunch and will put the chopped up veggies in there. Then, I just pop it into the fridge and later when I'm getting ready for work I just add some lettuce, cheese and dressing and then I'm all ready to go!!
