Best Salad

Hey hey hey!!! Happy hump day! Today has been a day filled with lots of work. This girl has to bring home the dough!

Last night I may have made the most delicious salad I have ever had…..seriously it was beyond easy, and crazy delicious! I got home from work and did a quick 3 miles on the dreadmill, then it was time for me to cook!!

Since I had gone to the grocery store recently, I knew exactly what I wanted!! I started by cooking this Trader Joe’s seafood blend. (I’m obsessed with this BTW!)

All I did was heat it on the pan with some olive oil spray, garlic salt, and paprika! These on their own are incredible…

Next I cut up two stock of romaine (I imagine you could use any lettuce you like, this was just what I had.)

The star of the show…….I added crumbled GOAT CHEESE!!!! IMG_0756.JPG

Then topped it with some light balsamic vinaigrette. That was it!! I ate this bowl x2

Interesting fact. When I mentioned moving…..I didn’t tell you that I moved in with my COUSIN! I have been staying in her place for a while now and its awesome!! We are having a blast!! I made this salad for both of us and she said. “I could eat this salad everyday” Literally, that good! Goat cheese makes everything better.

This morning I started off my day with a green juice! I also set my alarm an hour earlier to get in a morning workout……didn’t happen. I am way too close with the snooze button. I hope I will be able to change this habit soon!

Sorry I used the flash! I was rushing to work and shooting this pic in the elevator! Green juice and string cheese, perfection! I am LOVING the juices from this place! So delicious!!!

I obviously had to continue my love of goat cheese for lunch..

This wasn’t as amazing as my salad last night, but it was pretty darn tasty!

I also had to drink another juice….obsessed much??

This was AH-MAZ-ING! No joke, phenomenal! You need to try this juicery if you are ever in the LA area!! Actually, if you’re ever in the LA are we will have a play date and go drink lots of juice!!

Tonight I am going to my parents house to remake the salad I made last night!! I have to make it for my momma!! After dinner I will be dancing!! Can’t wait!!

XOXO

  1. I love your salad! πŸ™‚ What motivates me is all of the energy I get from working out! πŸ™‚

  2. When I know it’s something important I’ll hop right out of bed but other days I have to think about the fact that I need to give myself an hour to digest breakfast before running and during that hour I read blogs:) My best salad is any southwest kind of salad with black beans, veggies, salsa, and sour cream!

  3. I’m a morning person for the most part so it’s easy for me to get motivated and get things done especially working out. I love making salads with onions, mushrooms, olives, chicken, and toasted peanuts πŸ˜€
