Lots of Greens

Yesterday, we went to Fresh Choice right before 5:00 p.m. and got dinner for $6.99 a person (and since the toddler is 2, he eats for free!).

I got a nice plate of greens with fresh, delicious salsa instead of salad dressing. I also squirted a bit of fresh lemon juice over the top. It was delicious.

Here is what I put on my salad (as far as I remember):
  • Baby spinach
  • Spring mix lettuce blend
  • Beets
  • Carrots
  • Edamame
  • Corn
  • Peas
  • Red cabbage
  • Tomatoes
  • Garbanzo beans
  • Blue cheese
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Salsa
  • Lemon Juice

Greens 02

I have said this before, while I love making salads, it’s very nice to have others prep all the veggies for you. Hubby, are you reading?!!!? :-)

And this morning I had more “greens” in the form of Amazing Grass. I tried the Amazing Meal Chocolate Infusion sample with almond milk.

I really enjoyed the taste of the chocolaty milk, but the texture was a bit grainy. I think I may have not mixed it up enough. It’s definitely a drink I would have again, and it’s a quick breakfast when you are running late. Here is a closer look at the ingredients and nutrition info.

Question: Have you been eating enough greens lately? If not, what do you plan on doing to change this?
Happy Weekend! I’m off to a Bootcamp class with one of my favorite local bloggers. Any guesses who it could be? Wish us luck!

Be well,
