Mama Said, “Don’t play with your food”

After a blustery weekend in Colorado, I’m quite thrilled with the sun making an appearance today. In celebration of the return of warmer weather I thought I’d share with you this character I found in my ‘power foods’ salad the other night:

I got to the bottom of the pile of shredded brussels sprouts, broccoli, kale and cabbage tossed with a poppy seed dressing (it’s a salad kit from Costco – I’ll tell you more about it another time because it’s worth a try, for sure) to find this little guy looking back up at me.

Unsure how the stars all aligned in such a way to pull this off, but here you have it.

I like to believe that many things, especially those which are quite unique, are a sign; a communication from above, but I just can’t put my finger on what this one could possibly mean.

Let’s consider it a sign of good things to come – for me and for you. I hope you are having a fabulous week! The weekend is in sight!

Chicken -n- Stuff Salad

Remember that chicken I suggested you make, shred and freeze in individual portions, in this post? Well, thaw out a bag because I’ve got a quick, simple and healthy salad that’s just perfect for mixing up your lunch time routine!

Ingredients:
-Chicken (previously cooked and shredded)
-Romaine Lettuce
-Red Onion
-Feta Cheese Crumbles
-Toasted Almond Slices
-Craisins
-Avocado
-Balsamic Vinaigrette (I sometimes make my own, but have found some I like just as well without preservatives in the cooler section in the produce department, next to the prepped salads. That’s what I used in this one!)

Instructions:
Chop and assemble all ingredients (amounts according to your liking) on a plate and drizzle with dressing.

Seriously, super easy.

I like to prep 2 salads at a time, leaving a second in the fridge to grab-and-go on a busy work day.

As the weather gets nicer, I am reminded that it’s about time to start transitioning away from hearty, heavy meals to lighter, fresher varieties. This one certainly fits that bill!

Enjoy!
