Okay…I’ve got two healthy meals in the books for today and I swear I’m already feeling better!
Oh hello there, good lookin’.
Last night, I put together a big ‘ol salad to take with me for lunch today. I threw in everything I could find in our veggie drawer:
- romaine lettuce
- grape tomatoes
- red onion
- shredded carrots (SO much better than diced, IMO)
- dried cranberries
- a wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese
- a piece of cubed up grilled chicken
- Newman’s Own Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing (2 tbsp)
I also packed up a golden delicious apple, some almonds, and an unphotographed Clif Z Bar.
Definitely time to load back up on the good stuff again! I’ve also been chugging water like it’s my job, which is helping a LOT.
Tonight, Jay and I are having company over for dinner (our friends Joe & Kate, who we actually have not seen since Kate’s birthday party!) so I’m pretty excited about that. On the menu: Healthy Baked Chicken Parm with my homemade sauce. I think at this rate, I’m going to turn INTO my homemade sauce pretty soon. Mmmm Mmmm!
Question for the Afternoon:
Do you have a favorite or “signature” meal to make when company is over or when you attend a party?
