144.6…A Salad Kick

I’ve really been on a salad kick lately. First there was my lunch yesterday at Urban Plates (I’m still thinking about that delicious bread with my salad.).

Then last night we took the kids to their school’s Open House. Afterwards we headed to Souplantation for some more salad!

I also had some chili and a baked potato. I usually like to pour ranch dressing all over my salad. Their ranch is the best! Last night I dipped my fork in the dressing then into my salad. It was hard but I ended up eating a lot less of it than I usually do.

For breakfast this morning I had Fage strawberry yogurt with strawberries.

I took the kids to school and then went to Lisa’s house for our Slim in 6 video session. We were actually both sore from the first day! I didn’t think the video was that hard but I guess my body thought so? After the video we both went to Zumba class for a little cardio action.

My husband was working from home today so we decided to go to lunch together at Delicias. I chose the Chopped Vegetable Salad.

It was a lettuce-less salad loaded with tons of different kinds of veggies tossed in a sherry vinaigrette. I decided to add grilled chicken. The salad was FABULOUS. There were shreds of parmesan cheese as well. Another salad win!

After lunch, I ran to Costco, picked up the kids from school and took my son for a haircut. We are actually staying home for dinner for once and I’m excited about it. It’s nice to be home!

What restaurant makes your favorite salad?


  1. I love Panera salads and California Pizza Kitchens, too! They both really chop their lettuce which I love for some reason. I also use the fork dipping method and never let them dress my salad because they always use way too much!

  2. Hi! I just want to let you know I've been reading your blog for over a year and have never commented! I figured I probably should! Keep it up, I always look forward to reading :-)

    Hi Caroline! So glad you decided to comment! It's nice to know who's out there! :)

  4. I love Mimi's Cafe Chopped Cobb salad. Delish!! I also like TGIF's Cobb.

  5. i LOVE salad...i live off of saladworks. All of my friends always make fun of me when we go out to eat because i am "salad girl" or the "healthy one"

  6. oh love a good salad! I love the salad at Mastro's ocean club - the one with wasabi...yum! I also love a place here called Wildflower Bread. Your salads all look delish! I am on week 2 of WW...yes, its true, Down 1.6. slow and steady, I keep telling myself. I dont think I have a great deal of water etc to lose the first couple of weeks as I dont eat "horribly" to start with - for me I think its portion and choices - ie, snack, dessert, etc. Anxious to hear more about slim in 6! I am going to google it now.....
