A couple days ago I was in the mood for spicy chicken. We also had no bread in the house so I decided I would make a salad.
I fried up a couple chicken breasts. I spiced them with garlic powder, salt, pepper, and freshly ground Cajun seasoning. Once the chicken was well cooked I cut it all up into small pieces and put some aside for a future meal.
For my greens, I mixed romaine lettuce with iceberg. I combined them in a bowl and added my signature home made salad dressing.
For the dressing I drizzled some olive oil over my greens and then poured a generous amount of balsamic vinegar over the lettuce. I sprinkled salt and pepper over my greens, then I added some light parmesan cheese over top. Finally I added my Cajun Chicken. Viola lunch was served.
It was a wonderful yummy meal. I was surprised that I was quite full after, since I usually have a something else with salad.
I had some of my favorite juice with my delicious salad.
This evening I made salad for my lunch (yes lunch since I’m on my night shift time). I have been staring at the lettuce in the fridge for about a week. I bought it intending to make salad about a week ago, but the urge never hit. I think in the winter when it’s cold and snowy the last thing I want to do is eat a cool salad when I could be eating a nice warm meal. Here is my salad recipe.
A Simple Green Salad
Extra virgin olive oil
Ground black pepper
Parmesan cheese (fresh grated)
Prepare vegetables. Place in a bowl. Pour vinegar, and oil over vegetables. Then sprinkle on the spices. Toss and sprinkle on parmesan cheese. Serve.
I have been trying to eat more healthy these days, as well as get regular exercise (go to the gym 3-5 times/week). In my attempt to become stronger, strengthen my immune system, and loose a few pounds.
I have been eating salad galore, and got quite tired of it (always eating the same kind of lettuce). I decided to try something different. Here is what I had for lunch.
Low fat grated cheddar cheese
Salsa Ranch Dressing (the zestyness is a nice change).
