Last night, I had one of the best salads that I’ve had in awhile.
Unfortunately, I scarfed it down way too quickly and didn’t have time to really savor it since Michael and I had plans to go out.
It actually felt as though someone was hovering over us with a stopwatch as we ate!
(Lightly adapted from Hungry Girl)
3 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1/4 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
1/2 cucumber, chopped
2 Gardein Chicken Tenders (Grilled chicken, eggs, tempeh, tofu, or fish would work too)
1/4 cup chopped red onion
5 black olives, sliced
1/4 cup canned beets, drained and chopped
2 tbsp. canned black beans, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp. canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp. sweet corn kernels, removed from the cob
1 tbsp. nutritional yeast (cheese would work too)
Dash black pepper and sea salt
Place all ingredients in a bowl and toss well to mix. Enjoy! (Makes one serving)
I’ll definitely make this again soon, especially since it is so simple. And next time, I’ll eat it in slow motion.
After we inhaled our dinner, Michael and I headed out to a charity event at Grapevine in Baxter Village.
I usually have a snack an hour or so after dinner, but last night, my snack was sangria. 😉

It was a very fun night with lots of great people!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to sign off to eat my breakfast… very slowly….
Do you eat quickly or do you savor your meals? I am trying to be better about putting my fork down between bites and really trying to focus on the meal. It isn’t always easy though!
