Happy Hump Day!
After my wonderful run yesterday (note the sarcasm), I made myself a giant bowl of Overnight Chia Seed Yogurt although instead of letting it combine overnight, I let it work for just a half hour. I also added strawberries to the mix.
I added a heavy amount of honey to the top and scraped the bowl clean. This was my brunch. I had a goofy schedule at work today so I made sure to pack a few snacks to tide me over through the afternoon: apple, sugar snap peas, carrots, and a string cheese.
For dinner, I used up ingredients we had on hand to make one of my all-time favorite salads.
Moose watched while I prepared dinner. Sorry Moose, I know this isn’t your most flattering angle. 😉
Here is the beautiful colorful plate of healthiness that I put together.
The combination of textures in this salad are so pleasing to me between the creaminess of the avocado, beans, and dressing, the juiciness of the fruit, and the crunch of the onion, it’s just perfect. It’s sweet, it’s creamy, it’s my…
Sweet and Creamy Salad
This salad is sweet and refreshing, and perfect any time of year.
red onion, diced
fresh strawberries, diced (or frozen if you don’t have fresh on hand)
1 can mandarin oranges, drained
1 ripe avocado, diced
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
Newman’s Own Lite honey mustard dressing (or your favorite honey mustard)
Place mixed greens on large plate. Top with remaining ingredients. Drizzle with honey mustard. You could bulk up the salad with more protein by adding grilled chicken breast or shrimp.
I am off to work. Have a great day!
