What’s in Your Salad?

Happy day after Mother’s Day, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful, restful day. Last month, I did a blog called “What’s in Your Closet?”. Apparently, I’m a very nosey person, because now I want to know what you put in your salads. 🙂

In February, my husband and I embarked on a healthier living menu plan. I’m not calling it a diet, but it could be seen that way. It’s been a very successful endeavor so far as I’m losing weight. In order to break my bad habits, though, I basically had to make food boring. So I pretty much eat the same thing every day.

We’ve managed to cut out carbs at most of our dinners, eating some sort of meat or fish, and a salad. Lately, it’s been getting harder and harder to pull all the salad fixings out of the refrigerator. I think I need to zazz it up a bit and thought I’d ask y’all what you put in your salads. 🙂saladlt

Here’s our standard salad:

  • Green leaf lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Celery
  • Radishes
  • Cucumber
  • Green Onions
  • Carrots
  • Dressing of choice

That’s it for ours. It takes a while to cut everything up,  but we like a lot of stuff in our bowls. So, if you have any good, lean suggestions for changes or additions, I’d love to hear them. I’m halfway to my primary weight loss goal in 12 weeks and I want to keep it going. 🙂
