Two In The Books

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’. Winking smile

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
  • cucumbers
  • 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?
