Salad For Lunch This September

For the month of September I’ve convinced my husband that we should eat salad for lunch. I mean we do eat salad as a side for dinner but I wanted to try eating more of it by making it a lunch routine on weekdays.

We just bought groceries but yesterday I told him we’re out of salad – something I NEVER thought I’d say, EVER 😂. I’m usually throwing half a bag of rotten salad at the end of the month. Anyhooo…

He came home with 2 bags of Iceberg garden mix and 2 cases of Spring mix. I prefer the former coz it’s crunchier while he likes the latter. But, I could eat either kind. I add sliced tomatoes & cucumber too. Avocado sometimes on mine.

For protein: Cut up or shredded leftover meat from dinner the night before OR boiled eggs. Grilled tuna is DELICIOUS, by the way!! 👍🏻👍🏻

I make a simple but delish vinaigrette for dressing.

Eyeball it(refer to the video): olive oil, apple cider vinegar(or lemon juice), brown mustard, garlic powder, S&P. Shake shake shake.

For toppings: Either sunflower seeds or crispy onion rings. Leftover garlic bread warmed up in the oven or air-fryer for a few minutes is a good way to make croutons.

Not a health guru or anything but as always, EXERCISE. You can follow any diet plan, count calories, and eat just certain group of foods all you want but if you don’t move you arse 🤷‍♀️ you won’t get the results you want. Start by walking and find something that you would enjoy. I dance, do Pilates/Toning, and walk. Scott does Yoga every morning and his own toning workout + morning walk/run w/ Chase. Plus, drink plenty of water. This is IMPORTANT 💦💦.

Lastly, don’t forget to take sweaty selfies after your workout then text them to your Hubby/Wife. 😉☺️
