Day 29: Summer salads.
Summer means lots of trips to the farmers market, fresh produce and time on-the-go. But it also means lots of food, opportunities to sit on patios and drink cocktails and shorter dog walks (because it’s too hot to go too far). In an attempt to maintain some balance, we made this tropical summer salad with honey chipotle dressing (recipe here). We’ve been trying to enjoy dinner salads more often to maximize the opportunities to get fruit and veggies into our lives and to keep it light. Sometimes it works, sometimes it backfires and I get hungry at 10:00pm and snarf handfuls of mini marshmallows and a pound of cherries.
So, as we approach the end of 30 days of food inspiration (new and exciting things to come…stay tuned) I’d like to know what your go-to healthy meals are! Salads? Veggie pastas? Whole grain and lean protein? Or are you more of a supermodel diet person — cigarettes and a marshmallow Vodka martini?
We’re always looking to expand our healthy food repertoire, so fire away!
