It's Time for a Change

Now that we are using Sunbasket for three meals a week, I hardly ever have leftovers for lunch. I've been resorting to grabbing a protein bar and a piece of fruit. That was bad enough. Then I stopped having time to make my green smoothies for breakfast and starting grabbing the same kind of protein bar for breakfast. What?!?

I have to stop. I need more veggies and more fiber. Enter the work day salad...

Inspired by Kelsey, I am going to start making a work day salad the night before. Here's what I'm aiming for:
  • Crunchy lettuce
  • Farro
  • Boiled egg
  • Peas
  • Carrots
  • Cucumber
  • Red pepper
I'm going to try her strategy of salad dressing at the bottom, then grain. I'm excited!

I'm catching up on your blog as I eat my work day salad! I hope you find a combo that you enjoy, I really look forward to my salads every day and it's increased my vegetable consumption by...A LOT. This week mine include romaine, cabbage, red pepper, parsley, avocado, feta and walnuts. Yesterday I had some tuna as well.

A friend of mine does this "salad in a jar" thing, that looks really cool! You put all the heavy stuff in the bottom of the jar, like chickpeas, olives, nuts, etc. Then chopped veggies, soft fruits (tomato etc.), then your leafy greens. You can make up to 6 or so at a time and stope them in the fridge, then just grab and go. When ready to eat, dump it out into a bowl and your salad is all ready to eat... just need to pack some dressing. A good idea for those grab and go mornings.
