Super Salad

As I strive to eat well (and hopefully in the process I will also shed a few pounds), my weekday lunches usually consist of a veggie packed salad. I have come to crave my noonday salad. 
Bowl full of lettuce (spring mix), kale and spinach. Dice: one avocado, a handful of cherry tomatoes, a chunk of cucumber and half of an orange pepper.
Top with feta cheese, homemade Italian dressing, pumpkin seeds and slivered almonds. Yum.

Italian Dressing:
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup Wildtree Zesty Lemon Grapeseed Oil
1/4 cup Wildtree Roasted Garlic Grapeseed Oil
1/4 Balsamic Vinegar
3 T. Wildtree Italian Salad Dressing Mix

Now if only I could resist the "treats" (potato chips, pizza, cookies, etc.) that my husband keeps bringing into the house. It seems I lose weight during the week only to regain it on the weekends. Two steps forward, two steps back.....

  1. Keep motivated. We are trying very hard ourselves to eat more veggies but the once a week pizza and the snacks I accidentally bring home are not helping. Your salad looks yummy.
