Chopped salad

Its been 5 days of MAKING THE SHIFT with the new program SHIFT SHOP and I gotta say-feeling like a brand new baby challenger again just starting out has me feeling all the feels!!!

When I committed to the 21-day fix over 3 years ago i was 100% COMMITTED – following my meal plans, measuring my foods, avoiding the temptations and just staying focused. Once I met my “goal weight” I got more lenient.

Arguably –  Rightfully so…but then I got comfortable. And 2 pounds here and 3 there started to add up.

And while my focus is not on the scale and more so on how I FEEL it was rippling into other areas and I am PROUD to say I AM BACK IN MY GROOVE!!!

One thing I used to have DAILY was a salad for lunch. I’m not talking plain chicken and lettuce. A loaded, filling, FUN and different salad to help me get in the greens and really fuel up on good foods and with salads a part of the daily lunch plan in week 1 of SHIFT SHOP – I fell back into where I started.

  • 1 cup romaine/spinach
  • 1/2 cup carrots
  • 6oz grilled chicken (rotisserie also works well!)
  • 1/2 cup steamed edamame
  • 2 tbs almond slivers
  • Dressing of choice

(If you’re following the Shift Shop meal plan or Portion Fix nutrition system this would be: 1.5 greens, 1 red, 1 yellow, 1/2 blue, 1 orange) 


  • Strawberries
  • Tomatoes
  • Red peppers
  • Avocado


Combine the lettuce/spinach, carrots and chicken in a large bowl and chop (I find using the Pampered Chef Salad Choppers makes it a BREEZE!!!) 

Add any additional toppings and dressing. Continue to chop

Top with almonds and edamame and ENJOY!!!
