Salad Overload

by Meghann on March 24, 2009

The one good thing I have to say about my protein shake breakfast (besides the fact it tasted like a Reeses!) was that it kept me full for hours!

Maybe it was the combination of Peanut Butter with the Shake Mix? But I was not even tempted to eat a mid morning snack and actually could have still waited another hour or so to eat lunch, if it wasn’t for the fact I knew Abbie was crossing her poor little legs at home!

The lunch I had planned in my head also encouraged me to head out for lunch around my normal noon time.

I have been dying for boats full of veggies lately. I just never seem to have enough, so for lunch I decided to just throw every veggie I had into a great big salad. I love my kitchen sink salad, I tend to be a little over zealous with them, but they always get the job done!


This monster salad contained:

  • Spinach
  • Sprouts
  • Tomato
  • Banana Peppers
  • Small Apple
  • 2 hard Boiled Eggs
  • Mushrooms
  • Pumpkin Seeds

For a little spice I made a ‘Buffalo Vinaigrette’ by mixing up some Buffalo Sauce, Olive Oil and Vinegar.


After lunch I caved into sweet tooth and grabbed a bite size Snickers and Hershey’s Bliss on my way out the door.


Baker Spotlight…

I was THRILLED when Amanda agreed to participate in my 2nd Blogging bake Sale on April 6th. Not only is she a total self less sweeties, but she is a phenomenal baker as well.

Trust me I can vouch for her!

Amanda was kind enough to send me a batch of Kit Kat Blondies and a batch of Heath Bar Inspired Blondies in the past.  Both batches of  blondies were of course amazing and a complete indulgence! Trust me you are going to want to bid high on Amanda’s treats!

Your salad puts my to shame! Eggs are always so good in salads.

Hope you’re having a good afternoon!

I LOVE big salads, I’m always overzealous with them 😉

I am like that with veggies too, I always make a HUGE salad and then am convinced I made it too big and there’s no way I can finish it…but then I always do : )

19 Run Saraaah March 24, 2009 at 6:34 pm

Awesome big salad – I need to get more creative! I have never seen banana peppers in the grocery store, only at Subway or Pita Pit…but they are so good!

20 wholefoodswholeme March 24, 2009 at 6:41 pm

i could live on massive salads all day every day. provided they were MASSIVE and crazy with toppings of course 🙂

21 Meg March 24, 2009 at 8:01 pm

Awesome salad!

yum to the shake. I used to go to the gym at 5 every morning, and on my way out for breakfast I would have a chocolate meal replacement shake with peanut butter. if my current gym could make those for me i would go every. single, morning.

Thanks for the spotlight! 🙂 I’m excited to bake for Bake Sale #2! I also love making kitchen sink salads…it’s always so much fun to try different non-veggie additions on a huge bowl of greens.
