Salad and Snacks…

One thing I really try to do is honor my hunger and fullness. I don’t do it perfectly all the time, of course…but rather than counting calories or grams of this or that….I try to make healthy choices and eat when and what my body wants.

This morning, I found myself hungry while I was at my desk and I nibbled on some blueberries. By around 11:00, earlier than I usually eat lunch…my stomach was growling….so I had an early lunch- salad from the cafeteria salad bar…


Our cafeteria salad bar actually has some pretty good options…I piled my salad with:

  • mixed greens
  • tomatoes
  • cucumbers
  • hard cooked egg
  • raisins
  • sunflower seeds
  • slivered almonds
  • bacon crumbles
  • green pepper
  • honey mustard dressing

It was delicious!

Later this afternoon, I had an awesome snack…fage 2% with a spoonful of blueberry preserves, blueberries, and this delicious granola courtesy Heather- it was so good!


I hope you’ve had a great day…I’m off to hang out with Anthony and later tonight….all 3 dogs get a bath! I have a fun night ahead!!

  1. I know what you mean about trying to listen to your hunger, even if it’s at wierd times. Lately I’ve found myself hungry for dinner at 5 or 5:30 pm! It’s strange. I want to eat when I’m hungry but that’s early! I used to have a good size snack to hold me over at times like those, but lately I’ve just been eating dinner! I mean, why not?!

  2. Haha – giving THREE dogs a bath….I can only imagine the fun you will have. 😉

    That is a great reminder, Angie!

    Oh my goodness, I can’t imagine giving 3 dogs a bath! Mine totally flips every time she has to get near water. That must be the reason she’s so stinky 🙂

  4. What a great salad! And the honey mustard dressing sounds delish!

  5. Have a fun time with the dogs. That can be a workout in itself. Woo. I’m not jealous of you at all.
