Salad

by Meghann on April 4, 2011

Look! Colors!

Pretty, right?

The veggie catch up from the weekend is in full force. The fridge is stocked with an array of color vegetables and my salad was packed full of a few of my faves (arugula, olives, cherry tomatoes, green beans, and blue cheese).

I dressed the salad with a new Vidalia Onion Vinegarette that was on sale at Publix this weekend.

I was sold on the 2 for $3 price tag and recognizable ingredient list.

The dressing was a little tangy, but really good. My little salad had a full 2 tablespoon serving, but that was a bit much. Next time a single tablespoon will do just fine.

I balanced the veggies with some carb and protein: sunflower bread topped with peanut butter and strawberries.

Off to Film!

I’m heading to Orlando today to film another episode of Meals & Miles.

Let’s see if you can guess this week’s adventure:

  • It involves water
  • It should give me a good stretch
  • I’m assuming good balance will be needed

Guesses?? πŸ˜‰

I have no idea, I would guess water skiing, but I think you already did that! Maybe aqua yoga (if that’s even an actual thing?!)
