Is anyone else as sick of the snow as much as I am? If you live in the northeast like me, you know what I mean..
Move over Winter, bring on Spring. My warm bowls of soup cravings have past and now my cravings have moved on to fresh colorful salads.

I typically always pack a salad for lunch. It’s a sure way I will meet my fruit/veggie quota for the day. Someone I work with noticed my salad routine and asked if I ever got bored of salad every day. Honestly, no! But it’s because I don’t pack a plain ole salad. The key is to pumping it up with various colors, textures, and flavors!

I always like to make sure I have a balance of protein, carbohydrates, fats, and plenty of fiber for the salad to keep me full through the afternoon.
Get adventurous! Find foods in your grocery store that you may not always pick up week to week. Blood oranges are fantastic and if you like navel oranges, you’ll definitely enjoy these too!
