Feel good food...

Monday Recap:

8:00:  Coffee with 1% & agave

9:30am:  Breakfast- Life cereal
Katie's new favorite...which is a TOTAL mess in the hands of a 1-year old, PSJ

12:00pm:  Lunch- Arugula salad with apples & cheddar cheese stick

3:00pm:  Snack - Handful trail mix

Well, this wasn't a typical "Monday salad", but we figured it was as close as you can get with what we already had on hand  (without a trip to the farmer's market this week)

You simply layered your plate with a bed of torn fresh spinach and topped with grilled asparagus...
(Coated in garlic powder & olive oil and grilled about 10 minutes)

On top of the spinach & asparagus, is grilled chicken breast coated in lemon pepper seasoning (or whatever seasoning you have on hand)

And then a layer of artichoke salsa...
  • 1 can of artichoke hearts, diced
  • 2 tablespoons capers  (+ I used a few tablespoons of the brine)
  • 1/2 diced red onion
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
And finally, a sprinkle of feta... 

I called this "feel good food"J  After the weekend, this is JUST what you need to kick off the week CO-RRECT!  Lots of veggies & lots of flavors = Can't go wrong there!

6:30-7:45pm:  Beginner's Power Yoga
Sweat, sweat, sweat...and peaceJ

Well, it is just WAY too gorgeous out to stay on this blog any longer todayJ  I woke up to bright sun & cooool 70 degrees.  Felt like waking up to a "Fall Football Morning"J  I should have some fun eats to show you tomorrow...until then, have a great Tuesday!
