"I Wish It Was Spring" Salad


I rarely think about making salads in the winter


But do we really need an excuse, such as the weather, to
 prevent us from enjoying such a healthy meal? Of course not!


In a large mixing bowl, I tossed together 1/2 a head of romaine lettuce
 and 4-5 cups of spring mix salad greens with 1 medium diced tomato, 
1/2 cup chickpeas, 1/2 diced avocado, and 1/8 cup diced red onion...


And 1 roasted and shredded chicken breast


I seasoned it with black pepper and made my 


Perfectly balanced meal


And a large enough portion to keep you full for hours



Questions: Have you been eating your leafy green 
vegetables lately? What's your favorite way to eat them?

That looks so healthy and delicious. I need some like right now! I have salads a lot for lunch even in the winter. My favorite way to have leafy greens is with some quinoa or hummus on top.

I got my leafy greens lately by having them in a green monster smoothie and using kale in my chicken stock.

Mmm salad! That bowl looks delicious and heyyy spring isn't that far away.

I like my salads simple - mixed greens (must include baby spinach and arugula), tomato, avocado, and some lemon herb dressing.

The salad looks wonderful! I've stir-fried and juiced greenies lately.

I've been needing to eat more summery foods to get out of the winter funk - this salad looks delicious! I've been eating a lot of raw veggies lately - they're just easier to transport around!
