Between having a broken refrigerator (2 weeks!), hanging out with Heat (3 months!), and working long hours (4-ever), I recently have found myself relying on easy, often-boxed dinners. This means a lot of frozen pizzas and eating out.
When I was living with Bamboo, the two of us got into the good habit of making simple but healthy dinners and exercising more. After a few months of this, I started craving nutrient-rich foods, like big ol' salads and crisp fruit. But I fear I've slipped back to dreaming of a gyros platter with a side of cookie dough.
To get back on track, I hit the gym yesterday and Heat & I made this inspirational salad for dinner:
Start with a big bowl. Throw this stuff in it.
- Baby spinach
- Cherry tomatoes
- Cucumber, chopped
- Avocado, chopped
- Carrot, grated
- Almonds, sliced
- Feta, crumbled
- BOCA Spicy Chik'n patties, cooked and chopped (I use one per person)
- Drizzle of Sriracha
- Dash of lemon juice
- Pinch of salt
- Splash of Newman's Own Low Fat Sesame Ginger Dressing
OMG, oishii! I would have taken a photo of the dish but it was late and I was hongry. In truth, the salad isn't much to look at because the avocado smooshes all over but it is very spicy/tasty. And you should try it. And that is all.
