Salad Challenge

Monday, August 02, 2010

So one of my challenge’s for the month of August is to replace one meal with a salad. Now I love salads and I can think out side the box and mix things up, but August is a long month and I wonder how I will be doing by the end of the month.

I started out the month with greens, raw onion, jalapeno cheese, and topped it with my turkey chili. This has been one of my favorite ways to eat my leftover chili for years. Tonight I grilled chicken breast for my lunch salad tomorrow. I have cucumber and tomato from our garden and will add some baby carrots. A friend from work is bringing in some corn and black bean salsa that she makes and that will be my topping.

I’m thinking fruit salad for breakfast one day and I have light Caesar salad that I will probably also add chicken to. Then I have another of my favorite salads which is just baby spinach, carrots, feta and a light Italian dressing with some grilled shrimp. And avocado on a salad will be scrumptious too!

So many choices and this is just day 2!

Oh yeah, blogging is also one of my challenges - I hope I don't run out of things to blog about....

    Salads are even nicer when you use your own home grown vegetables!

    Yum! Love jalapeno cheese and most of those veggies...!

    It's now beyond a shadow of a doubt...the same critter that has gnawed our red pepper plants to nubs has been trimming our tomato plants as well...we'll not likely see anything beyond a couple of cherry tomatoes from the inner part of the plant...sigh! I think deer must feel that raised gardens are made just for them!

    I try to have salads for lunch most days. We always have salads made with several chopped veggies for supper, and I set aside enough for a lunch. For protein, I add canned tuna, canned salmon, or leftover grilled chicken and a tablespoon of feta or blue cheese. I also try to have the lunch meal not include any kind of starch (bread, pasta, potato, etc. This becomes quite a full feeling without too many calories or fats.

    I love salads, too, and am always looking for new combos! Having all of the fresh fruits and veggies during the summer sure helps.
