Whats On Your Salad #2

Feeling fabulous can be as easy as adding a new scarf to your outfit, ordering a spiced latte, or knocking out a killer workout. The thing about feeling good is it varies for each one us. There's so much in each of my days that makes me happy and one of them is eating smart. It's hard to make the right choices all the time. One way I know that I've made a good, healthy choice with my eating patterns is to have a salad each day, typically for lunch.

Salads are incredibly versatile and packed with uber amounts of nutrition. Last week's post showed 5 very different salad creations and lots more thanks to all of those who shared and linked up! Keeping nutritional choices in the house will make eating healthy, loosing/maintaining weight, and feeling good -easy.
Creating a grocery list and meal plan is the first step. I hope to inspire some salad ideas in these link ups and to those who have joined in...you have absolutely inspired me to venture out and try new things!

What I learned this week...you can't have too much lettuce in your bowl - you just need a bigger bowl. Walnuts might be better than sunflower seeds as a crunchy topping choice. My taste buds do not like eggplant. Peanut butter and apples blend nicely into a delish salad dressing. Some days you gotta cheat and add some sugar to your salad. Lentils are odd but packed with fiber, protein and antioxidants that the body needs. An egg as dressing for your salad taste much better than you'd imagine. Quinoa loaded with veggies is amazing. Cabbage deserves attention too. And I missed my edamames.

My week of salads.

The Thai Peanut Slaw Salad was de-O-licious! I'm saving that recipe for next week. Hubs and I had it twice in one day...as a side salad and with chicken as a sandwich wrap! I made a huge batch of the veggie quinoa, we ate it as a side with some meals and spread with hummus on pita as well as dumped on top romaine lettuce!


And for the "sweet" cheat of the week....

napa cabbage salad, home made salad dressing, sweet asian salad dressing
Chop two heads of Napa Cabbage, couple tablespoons of chopped green onions, add handfuls of almond slivers and broken pieces of ramon noodles. Those ramon noodles should first be browned in a skillet with butter. I died over this salad. It taste even better the next day. The recipe was given to me by a friend...

Sweet Asian Dressing 

1/2 c. oil
1 Tbs soy sauce
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. distilled vinegar
boil for one minute, let cool and chill before tossing with salad




Last weeks top viewed salad creations are here and here. You know you want to see if it was yours!
And this little prego beauty kept it alive with me on Twitter along with this domesticated working woman.

These look awesome! I can't wait to hear about the quinoa! I love me some quinoa. My link will be live at 5:30 tomorrow morning.

Janna Renee said...

My favorite is Spinach, feta, strawberries, almonds, and raspberry vinaigrette, but I'm going to have to remember these too...yum!!

Kristine -Heart Shaped Sweat said...

I'm now obsessed with apples on salads! So yummy!

Kristine -Heart Shaped Sweat said...

Can you over do it on quinoa?! I hope not b/c I'm craving it almost everyday :) Looking forward to your link going live!

Kristine -Heart Shaped Sweat said...

That does sound yummy! Raspberry vinaigrette is def a go to for me. Love it! Thanks for sharing a salad tip :)

Hi Kristine! Thought I would let you know that I nominated you for a Liebster blog award. It says the award is to nominate blogs with less than 200 followers, you do a great job and rules are meant to be broken! :) Details are back on my blog: http://www.designyourdwelling.blogspot.com/2013/01/a-liebster-blog-award.html

I never thought to put a fried egg in my salad, your third picture looks delicious (well they all look delicious)! I also have become fond of poppy seed dressing, thanks to my mom!

smk053078 said...

Can you just make me a list/recipes of what I should eat and email it to me??? I am a complete idiot when it comes to healthy stuff. My diet is soooooo wrong in sooooooo many ways.

Kate @ Daffodils said...

I am picky about salads, I definitely need a little crunch in mine. Your first one looks right up my ally!

Jessica said...

Mmmmm I love Salad! We try to make a salad every night with dinner to ensure we are getting our greens!

Thanks for inspiring us to eat more salads! The Napa Cabbage Salad looks yummy!

Kristine -Heart Shaped Sweat said...

Congrats to you!! You deserve it - Love your blog!
And I agree, some rules are meant to be broken :)
Thanks for thinking of me, that means so much!

Kristine -Heart Shaped Sweat said...

I love poppy seed dressing. It's so sweet and yummy!
Egg on salad with protein, super easy and believe me, better than you'd think. I ate it after my Saturday workout, trusting that it delivered some well needed protein!

Kristine -Heart Shaped Sweat said...

No one would ever know!
You got the fashion 'deets and I'll hook up the healthy eats....

Kristine -Heart Shaped Sweat said...

That salad really was a treat! I agree, crunchy toppings are a must have. Love walnuts and sunflower seeds...and bacon, shhh!

Kristine -Heart Shaped Sweat said...

That's such a great idea and a perfect way to balance out the dinner plate! Excited to come by your space :)

Kristine -Heart Shaped Sweat said...

It was, give it a try! I always make a little extra dressing to use on sandwiches/wraps throughout the week. Thanks for linking up, your salad is going on my list!

Julie said...

Did you make? Cook? The quinoa with veggies? Interested in trying that!

my soul is the sky said...

Thanks for the comment and the link to Courtney's blog (: I decided to go ahead of linkup too, hope that's okay!

I like to get up early to go out and breathe fresh air. I feel that it is good for health and a good habit
