Kick Off Week Day 6 - Monday

Try to eat a salad for one meal each day.

Make yourself some edible art for yourself.
Maybe, just maybe Edward will present you with an apple.

Seriously though, if I try to eat a salad for one meal each day (either lunch or dinner) I have a lot more points left for the other meal that day.  Plus if all I bring to work for lunch is a salad, well then I guess that's all I'll be having.

Be careful eating salads at restaurants.  They are usually bad news and have more calories than if you were to just order the damn cheeseburger that you really want!

Here's my other secret salad eating tip.
I never put the dressing on my salad.  Ever.
I dip my fork in my dressing each time I pick up a bite of salad.
You know those cups of dressing they give you at a restaurant?
I can literally get away with eating only half of one of those.
Think of all the calories you are saving???
Just make sure when you order a salad out, 
that you ask for the dressing on the side.

So it's good to always have a salad made in the fridge, 
so there are no excuses!

  1. I need to get back to eating salad. I have been doing 100 calories soups for lunch, a 30 minute break that gets cut to about 20 after punching out and getting to the break room, I just don't have the time to eat a salad. When I do eat them, I'm eating so fast I feel sick. At least with the soup I can eat it slowly. I'll try this on my days off though, so if there's any improvement from it.
