30 Days of Food Inspiration – Day 29

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!

  1. I love salads when it’s hot and mostly make my own dressings. I use good olive oil and fancy vinegars (mostly from Vinaigrette in Minneapolis – I love that place), add some herbs or spices or even just salt and pepper. I get a lot more variety that way than I would from buying dressings. And they I think compliment the fresh veggie taste better.
