Snow & Salads

Happy Friday!

Has anyone else got hit with MORE snow? Luckily the roads are relatively clear now, but it is absolutely freezing so I am walking around like a weirdo to avoid slipping on ice. I actually have a unusual fear of falling on ice. Walking on ice makes me SO nervous, does anyone else feel the same?

I had a delicious, nutrient-packed salad for lunch:

In the mix:
-Mixed greens
-Chopped fresh basil
-Cucumber (my fav)
-Baby Tomatoes
-Red Quinoa
-Balsamic drizzle
In an adorable bamboo bowl that I love.

I also tried a new tea today,

It was surpisingly delicious. Anytime I feel a cold coming on I take Echinacea drops in water 2-3 times a day and I usually feel better almost instantly. Since the drops aren't the best tasting, I assumed the tea would taste similar, but it was very smooth and comforting. Supporting your immune system is especially important with weather like this!

What are you favorite salad toppings? Cucumbers are a must for me!

Any plans for the weekend?


  1. What a cool bamboo bowl! I love quinoa! :) I love putting dried apricots and cranberries on my salads!My plans for the weekend are get on top of my assignments and watch the bears game! How about you?

  2. We had date night tonight and it was fab ; )

    I love something with a crunch on my salad, I like to crumble up whole grain crackers on top ; )

    Happy weekend girl! xoxo

  3. Your salad looks awesome!
    My fave topping lately is chickpeas and beans....but quinoa sounds really good. I like to warm stuff up and dump it on a cold salad---yum!

  4. We're getting a light dusting right now. You east coasters have gotten hit so hard!

  5. We got hit last night! I love chic peas and thick dressing!

  6. Weirdly enough, I love boiled potatoes on my salad - adds a bit of bulk! Greek salads with feta, cukes, onions and olives are always a winner too!
