60 Salads in 60 days Challenge

This weekend was a busy and good one filled with COLOR! 
I had an ice skating date which was SO much fun! I am so thankful for someone I can be active with and have fun! I had a "new" outfit on for the occasion too, including a Bright, sparkly scarf! 


We went to the old Train Depot in Minneapolis which was converted into a rink, hotel, water park etc. It's really warm and nice! They even had the mirror ball going at one point. 


I am looking forward to a lot of active dates: 
running
cycling
trips to the gym
hiking & 
if I am lucky a little tennis!

What is your favorite date activity to stay active & healthy?? 

The rest of the weekend was JUST as colorful with the greenest green monster I have had in a long time! Spinach, banana, soymilk and a little protein powder! 


I picked up a little set of medium turquoise bowls too! I LOVE the color and they are perfect serving sizes! 


60 Salads in 60 Days:
I am taking the 60 salads in 60 days challenge on Facebook. Click to join the group and join in the challenge! Goal: Incorporate a salad into our diet daily for the next 2 months! 


I could definitely use some accountability like this, just to make sure I get my green foods in and keep things light, we are not out of the winter tunnel yet and comfort foods, heavy foods, carb heavy meals are still calling me. When really, salads are just as easy (IF NOT easier) to make.  

Why not incorporate a salad into everyday? 
you get your veggie servings in
you feel more full before meals
you can feel satisfied using fewer calories
you can be more creative with toppings than any other meal... AND 
They are pretty to photograph!



Salad #1 Spinach, grilled peppers, grilled Zucchini, tuna, chia seeds, garlic, lemon juice & olive oil dressing!  

What is your favorite salad topping and do you think you will join the Facebook group and make your 60 Salads in 60 Days official? Do you follow Me on FB? Check it out and Happy Monday!

I am searching for the facebook link, but in the meantime...does this mean a salad with your meal or a salad as a meal?

My fav items are raw sugar peas, nuts, cranberries, grape or cherry tomatoes, and chick peas.

This is perfect timing since I really need to pack up the remaining pots/pans and dishes (moving across the country in 30 days).

Yep - following ya on FB!

Ice skating is such an awesome activity!! I love chicken with red hot sauce (buffalo) on salad, and also a"greek"salad with feta, olives and banana peppers!! Yummmm!!!

If I was on Facebook, I would totally join this challenge! But I think I'm going to do it anyway. It's a great positive way to think of eating (60 salads is so much more positive than "no fat" and less scary than pure "clean eating"). Thanks for sharing about it! I'll follow your blog to stay motivated, so don't be shy to share about it ;)

I like the idea of this challenge, my only worry would be running out of ideas for salads!

I went to the depot a few days ago and it's a BEAUTIFUL rink! Ice skating is a ton of fun to stay active. Have you tried out Skyzone Sports - the big indoor trampoline park? I bet that would be an AWESOME workout
