The BEST salad and breakfast EVER!!

So I made the BEST salad I have ever made in my life (and I have made a lot of salads) this one tops the charts and I just had to share it with you. I started with spinach then I added a hard boiled egg, tomatoes, salsa and beets. I had a plum and a Lipton green tea on the side. This meal filled me up, gave me energy and made me feel good about the amount of vitamins and nutrients I put in my body.
Fruits and vegetables that are dark in color contain higher levels of vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants. Beets, especially these pictured above, are convenient and are an unexpected addition to a salad. Spinach is the best nutritional option as iceberg lettuce has no nutritional value (most restaurants will allow you to sub spinach for iceberg if you ask). The hard boiled egg provides protein and healthy fat that helps you stay full longer. This salad fulfills a healthful dose of your daily vegetable intake! (You should be having 6-8 servings a day)

Luck should have it I made the BEST breakfast of my life yesterday too!! Get a load of this- one egg, two eggwhites, chopped spinach and a side of fat free cream cheese. Egg whites have the protein without the fat. Then I sprayed Pam on a Fat Flush tortilla wrap, toasted it and spread almond butter on top. I grabbed a handful of fresh rasberries and VOILA- the best breakfast of my life.


  1. Salad sounds fabulous! I adore beets, salsa, and hard boiled eggs in mine--mmmm!

    Hehe, looks like you had lots of fantastic eats yesterday :)

  2. Hey thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment! I'm interning at a healthy lifestyle/weight loss resort/spa so all my meals are cooked up by the kitchen! I've been here for 11 1/2 weeks and they rotate meals every 2 weeks so it's starting to get tedious and I'm itching to make my own food.

    The pita pizza is amaaaazing. The cheese makes or breaks it so don't skimp on it!

    Can't wait to read more of your blog.

  3. lol! YAY to best meals in your life! That salad does sound really amazing!
