Healthy Recipes to Keep You Fit and Fabulous

Leftover Salad

Breakfast

The yogurt bowl is ruling my life these days.  I’m trying to keep carbs to a minimum during the week, just for the next few months, in an effort to look bueno in my wedding dress.  We’ll see how long that lasts.  All this really means is that instead of having a carb-heavy breakfast, followed by a sandwich for lunch and something carb-y with dinner, I’m trying to stick with yogurt-centered breakfasts and salad-heavy lunches.

I filled a bowl with Fage 0% Greek Yogurt, topped with a handful of Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds, for some crunch.

Lunch

Corey and I were talking last night about our favorite lunches.  He asked me what I would eat for lunch if I could pick anything to make at home every day.  I said, “Honestly, I just like leftover dinner on top of lettuce!”

Anytime we have a little leftover chicken, fish, or even burgers, with some steamed or roasted veggies on the side, I love to chop up some Romaine lettuce and throw the leftovers on top (heated, of course).  I just add a few other salad toppin’s and my favorite dressing, and lunch is ready to go.

Yesterday’s creation was a small leftover turkey burger and steamed brussel sprouts with a sprinkle of 2% cheddar cheese and Naturally Fresh Ginger Dressing, on top of a bed of Romaine.

Workout 

I put off my workout for as long as possible yesterday.  Generally, I really prefer to wake up in the morning and get my workout over with.  It’s a great feeling to be finished and know that you can spend the rest of the day doing other things.  If I don’t, the thought of having to workout later looms over my head all day.  Yesterday was one of those days.

I loaded up my iPod with all kinds of new songs (basically 3 new Nicki Minaj jams, duh), and headed out the door around 4:00PM for a run.  Well, that didn’t last long, thanks to some shooting leg pains and a severe thunderstorm over my head.  I made it for about 10 minutes before coming inside to complete a treadmill workout for 35 minutes.

Dinner

Corey and I needed to make a grocery store run, so we decided to eat dinner first at one of my favorite places- Green Lemon Cafe.  I ordered my go-to salad- Tuna with Balsamic dressing.

Afterwards, we decided to venture over to Whole Foods next door.  After realizing that we could barely afford a lemon in that place, we started to make our way out the door.  And then, the bakery caught my eye.  Everything looked so great!  I picked out a Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie that was size of my face for us to share.

Corey also picked up a treat.

His version of the word “treat” and my version are clearly very different 🙂 .

What is your favorite leftover meal?
