Salad 4 of 7.


salad 4

I grilled up about 3 oz of chicken that I had marinating in a mango vinaigrette/ sliced jalapeno mixture. It turned out slightly sweet and spicy. Delish.

Used a bed of fresh organic romaine hearts and spinach + few chunks of avocado + tomato + onion + 1 tbsp of feta + 1/4 cup of roasted japanese sweet potato and added the grilled chicken.

My friend over at http://tryingnottobefat.com/ and I have decided to do a salad challenge together!

Starting Monday April 10 we will incorporate one salad into our daily meals for a week. That is right ladies and gentlemen. One salad every single day for a week!

Not the kind of salads that make you want to cry either! We are talking about tons of greens, healthy proteins, healthy fats, and whatever else you can come up with on these salads. I am excited because I love a good salad. It takes me forever to eat them, and they keep me feeling full!

If you would like to join us on this salad challenge you can comment on this blog post!

If you want to be a fancy pants, take a picture and post it on my facebook wall (or onto trying not to be fat’s wall). There is nothing better than being accountable! Show us your beautiful salads!

Make sure you stock up this weekend with tons of good stuff. 🙂

Have a good night guys!

Salad Fever.


People always associate DIETS with SALADS. Like a bowl of iceberg, some carrots, a tomato slice, a radish, and a drop of some fat free horrible salad dressing. Since I am not on a diet I can load my salads up with tons of healthy options. I never get tired of salads! Here are some ideas. Click through to my salad gallery–

A spin on chicken salad.


I love “salad”. Chicken salad, tuna salad, shrimp salad, egg salad, any kind of salad basically. When people are watching their weight they tend to write these options off. Fatty mayonaise? No thanks. Fortunately I don’t have to give them up. I just started using plain greek yogurt for my mayonaise substitute. I can enjoy any kind of salad I want. Here is todays creation inspired by a pinterest recipe I saw. Click– Continue reading “A spin on chicken salad.”

La Islamorada Salad.


Slip away to the islands with this yummy salad.

  • 4 oz of cooked chicken (I just grabbed leftovers that I made earlier in the week).
  • 1/2 a kiwi. Sliced. Leave the skin on. It’s got super powers.
  • 1/2 a ripe peach. Sliced.
  • 1/4 hass avocado. Diced.
  • 1 tbsp of onion. Diced.
  • 1 tbsp of salad dressing. Think honey mustard, creamy poppyseed, mango, or creamy poppyseed.
  • 1-2 cups salad greens of choice.

Slice fruit + onion+ avocado. If you don’t have peaches or kiwi, think pineapple, raspberries, mango. You get it. Tropically. Add toppings on top of greens. Enjoy!

Ps- I know that these tropical fruits have a higher sugar content. Yes I eat them in moderation. No I don’t count fruit sugar as sugar. Fruit never made anyone fat!
