Much Better!

I had a few different titles today before I went with the ole boring one one top:

  • What Was I Thinking?

  • Pimp My Salad

  • An Organized Mess

See? I was going nowhere with these names and my imagination is broken today. I decided to be lazy last night and didn't pack a real lunch. I quickly threw some mixed greens into a tupperware and called it lunch. When I opened it up at 12:30, it looked like this:

A sad excuse for a salad, right? I think this is what people think of when they think diet food- just greens. I knew I had to get some more food or I would be hungry about 2.5 minutes after eating this. I went to the salad bar/ hot foods bar across the street. This does not compare to Whole Foods, but they have a lot of fun options:

Going clockwise from the top left:

  • Marinated mushrooms
  • Kale
  • Tofu
  • Kalamata olives (hi husband!)
  • Fresh mushrooms
  • Ginger
  • Kim chee
  • Sprouts
  • Seaweed salad
  • Roasted butternut squash

Much better- and much more colorful. I mixed the two together and it didn't look good, but it tasted GREAT! This is an example of making a healthy, balanced meal even if it didn't start out that way!


#1: What do you do when you have to improvise a meal?

#2: I need your help! What would you like to read about in my blog?

  • Daily food reports?
  • New recipes?
  • Wedding recaps?
  • Random thoughts?
  • Workouts?

Hope you have already started your weekend! I think my brain already has- just need to get my body there. Ciao bellas!

I like random thoughts and daily eats. Plus I like your humor, keep it up :)

The first salad is for sure something people would think of when they hear the word "diet". The second one, however, it a dream! Ohhh Whole Foods, you do it right.
