Mediterranean Salad

This is my favorite salad (until I have a new favorite, of course¬†ūüėČ ). I was craving Greek salad the other day.¬† Yes, craving a salad sounds weird, especially because I crave foods like bagels and pizza on a regular basis.¬† You better believe that I‚Äôm going to take advantage of this healthy craving while it lasts.¬† I love a traditional Greek salad made with tomatoes, cucumbers and feta cheese, but I wanted to kick it up a notch. I still kept this salad lettuce free, but I added a bunch of other colorful veggies like Kalamata olives, and pepperoncini …

Tuna and Chickpea Salad

I’m ready for Spring. I usually eat lettuce and veggie salads for lunch, but I haven’t been in the mood for them lately.¬† Maybe¬†my mind is still in Winter mode even if my soul is desperate for Spring.¬†¬†Instead I’ve had hot meals like pork egg roll in a bowl, vegetarian chili with rice,¬†and¬†egg rice stir fry. All of the sudden, with a little more light in the evening I find myself switching back to cold salads¬†because I’m craving Spring.¬† This salad is colorful and it reminds me that Spring is here even though it’s still¬†cold here in CT and we …

Greek Chickpea Flatbread Salad

Another day, another salad. I could eat the same thing for breakfast straight for two months and not get bored of it.¬† I usually alternate between yogurt with fruit and oatmeal with fruit.¬† I could also eat the same snack for days on end and that would be just fine.¬† Lately, I’m loving Skinny Pop popcorn¬†as my snack of choice.¬† On the other hand, lunches are a totally different beast.¬† Lately I feel pretty lucky if I eat my lunch without being sick of it by the time I’m done.¬† I’m weird, I know. Salads tend to be my deal …

How does one save time getting ready in the morning? Monday through Friday I feel like I’m rushing in the morning to get everything¬†done on time and out the door for the office.¬†¬†I’ve been driving to the same office for years, but the traffic has gotten worse. ¬†A couple of months ago I decided to reevaluate my morning routine and revise it to get things done early enough to make it to work on time. ¬†The answer is to plan ahead, prepare, prepare, and prepare some more. The first thing I decided to do was to pick out my outfit …

Greek Avocado Salad

Guys, I‚Äôve been totally slacking on posts lately (if you hadn‚Äôt noticed). I’ve mentioned a few times recently that I’ve been focused on my workouts. ¬†I think I have a good routine¬†going with those at this point.¬† Now I figure it’s time that I buckle down and focus on eating healthier on a more regular basis (i.e. not just on Mondays). ¬†So many of my blog posts are about food, and in my attempts to be healthy mean that the recipes are a bit boring. ¬†Some aren’t even “real” recipes at all, but rather a bit of a write up …
