Salad For Dinner
If you follow my Instagram feed, you will know that it is common practice in my family to have salad for dinner. Our salads usually consist of a healthy variety of greens, various vegetables and sometimes a protein (usually chicken or fish) on top.
When I do not know what to make and have run out of ideas, I make salad for dinner. When I want to eat clean, I make salad for dinner. When we eat too much around the holidays and need to detox, we make salad for dinner. When in doubt – it is always, salad for dinner!

I usually do my grocery shopping for the whole week, early in the week on Sunday or Monday. I went to my local Wegman’s and picked up Organic Sunny Caesar and Organic Southwest Salad Ready Pac elevĀte Salads. I make most of our meals from scratch but I do like to have some items on hand for when I get behind, or if I am tired or have a lack of time. I plan on sharing a typical grocery haul post soon so keep a eye out for that!

How I Got My Afternoon Back & You Can Too!
I was so tired after a blogging conference I went to this past Saturday (stay tuned for a whole post about that). Early in the week, on Monday, I did my grocery shopping as usual and picked up the Organic Sunny Caesar and Organic Southwest Ready Pac elevĀte salads.
Monday afternoon, I just wanted to enjoy some time with my family since I was gone all of Saturday. I normally start cooking around the time Eric gets home from work in the afternoon. Now that we have more daylight, I have been pining to get outside more with him and my daughter and enjoy the days.
The weather is really getting gorgeous here in New Jersey, although still a little cool, it’s a nice preview of the Summer to come. In the picture below, Eric goes up and down our driveway – on a unicycle – much to the delight and entertainment of my daughter 🙂
Eric has many talents and it very athletic. Check out this video of him on a unicycle from my Snapchat (follow @lifeslilsweets).Eric enjoyed the Organic Sunny Caesar Salad and I had the Organic Southwest Salad, they were so good! I can also see these as perfect salads to bring to work.
I was able to spend quality time with my family, enjoy the gorgeous weather and get outside of the kitchen!
