A Satisfying Salad
Organic Spring Mix makes for a delightful base to this ever-so-easy salad. My protein selection came from yesterday’s leftovers of slow-cooked barbecue chicken wings and thighs. Yum!
Actually, my tossed salad was leftover as well, meaning I spent less than five minutes preparing lunch and about the same consuming it! (Not recommended, I know.)
Recommended veggie additions and dressing: chopped cukes, tomatoes, asparagus, artichokes and avocado. The dressing is a homemade vinaigrette consisting of olive oil, balsamic and red wine vinegars, small amounts of sea salt, garlic powder, basil and oregano.
If you have hard-boiled eggs on hand, a quick chop of one will enhance the filling quality of this quick lunch. Or, save the egg for an afternoon snack to get the needed energy for dinner prep!
Thanks for coming along with me on the clean-eating journey! As one who has been staying with the plan for three months, I can say that I always get enough food and have plenty of energy. I believe the sugar addiction ended near the beginning of this change, and it’s wonderful not feeling controlled by the need for sweets.
