I’ve been trying to get over personal hurdles to losing weight, and one biggy for me is bad snacking. But here’s a salad you can’t go wrong with!
J.R.’s Spring Salad
spring greens salad mix (2 cups- 20 cal.)
mandarine oranges (1/4 cup, about 6 slices, and a bit of the juice for “dressing”- 50 cal.)
sliced almonds (1 tablespoon- 50 cal.)
rice vinegar and pepper (to taste- ZERO cal.)
I’ve been adding this salad to the side of a half-sandwich, or a cup of soup, or a greek yogurt. It’s easy to prepare before work, I just add the oranges and vinegar to the bottom of a to-go container, layer on the salad greens, and top it with the almonds. Come lunchtime, I shake the container a bit to mix, and presto! A good choice, right there in front of me.
Now I shall go munch on my lunch. Like a bunny (as I would say to my little girls). Have a great day!
