Summer Salad

summer salad

 

If you have that mindset that a salad has to be bland and boring you’re not eating the right salad! I try to keep lots of fruits and veggies on hand and ready to throw into a salad so I have no excuse for making poor meal choices!

I used to love getting the strawberry poppyseed salad from Panera…it was full of fruit and so refreshing but I later realized that it wasn’t all that “healthy”. The dressing wasn’t clean and there weren’t many “vegetables” on it. But I loved the idea of fruit on my salad! So I started making my own. And I actually found that when I have fruit on my salad I don’t even need to add dressing which is just an added bonus. Give it a try! You may just like it!!!

The chicken that I put on my salad today was just a mixture of 1 TBS olive oil, 1 TBS lemon juice with a tsp of Italian seasoning. It was light and juicy and the perfect addition to a filling salad! 

Ingredients:

1.5 cups fresh baby spinach

3 oz of grilled chicken

1/4 medium red bell pepper, sliced

6 grape tomatoes, halved

1/4 of a medium avocado, chunked

2 strawberries, chopped

4 pieces of pineapple, chopped

I also like to add hard boiled eggs and blueberries but I was working with what I had on hand today!

Switch things up and see if you can find a new way to eat clean and get lean all while eating delicious food!
