Soup or Salad ~ Salad!

by DanicasDaily on June 9, 2011

Happy Friday Eve all!  Thanks for sharing your efforts to be more sustainable ~ I honestly LOVE reading about that type of stuff and how each of you are doing your part to make a difference.

So, I have TWO COOL THINGS to share with you all starting tomorrow:

1) If you LOVE REESE’S PEANUT BUTTER CUPS and the upcoming Green Lantern Movie ~ check out my giveaway coming up tomorrow!

2) I will be making up a HARVEST GRAIN BLEND MIX so you all can make the HARVEST GRAIN SALAD ~ No Trader Joe’s needed…..I hope to post it this weekend.

Breakfast this morning was a banana-wich with coconut coffee (6 points+)


I was really undecided about what I wanted my workout to be….I wasn’t feeling a strength training workout, circuit or the elliptical.  So, I did the next best thing.

Jillian’s 30 Day Shred ~ Level 1 ~ It kicked my bootie in 20 minutes!


What I LOVE the most about this workout is her logic ~ you go through a series 3 minutes strength using multiple muscle groups, 2 minutes cardio, 1 minute abs.

Post workout snacks (1 points+)


I was still hungry so I decided to snack on a serving of Santa Fe Somersaults. (4 points+)


I actually made up my lunch and dragged it in to work today, but, I couldn’t do the Soup & Salad again.  It didn’t really help that I have been thinking about The Pasta Shop  all week long.

BIG SALADS with SIDE SALADS ALWAYS win in my book!  I think was more of a Side Salad Salad LOL.

Sun Dried Tomato Tortellini Salad


TONS of roasted carrots and butternut squash.


Mini Frittata Squares ~ My protein since I wasn’t feeling the chicken or the eggs.


Roasted Beet, Bean & Walnut Salad ~ one day I will just get this salad only over my greens.


All on top of a bed of organic greens with carrots and a few mushrooms in the corner.  I actually did pretty good at eating 90% of it ~ LOVE! (10 points+ estimate)


We are FINALLY having sunny weather in the 70’s-80’s~ I couldn’t resist snapping this picture on the train on my way home.  It’s such a pretty & relaxing rid ~ I <3 the train!


I honestly did NOT want to cook at all tonight (tired!)  But, The Husband convinced me that BLTA’s aren’t “really” cooking and they are super easy.

Even better ~ they are AMAZING every time I eat one!


* 2 slices Trader Joe’s Fat Free Multi-Grain Bread (3 points+)

* 1/4 avocado mashed topped with sea salt & black pepper (3 points+)

* 2 slices Uncured AppleWood Smoked Bacon (4 points+)

* 2 thick tomato slices & organic greens



* PIZZA!!! Shannon’s Kitchen Creations shares a delicious 6 points+ Cheesy Pesto Chicken Pizza Recipe with us!


See you all tomorrow for a chocolately peanut butter movie giveaway!!! Open-mouthed smile
