A Better Salad

Posted Apr 17 2010 11:15am

I had a delicious new breakfast today! – A breakfast wrap!

I’ve seen Missy eat these on her blog and they always look yummy so today I really wanted to try making one.

It was super simple.

  • First I sautéed some mushrooms (but you could use any veggies you like)
  • Then all I did was mix up one egg in a bowl
  • Poured it into a small frying pan on medium-low heat, so it covered the bottom.
  • Then covered it and let it cook for 2 minutes and then flipped it over and cooked the other side for another minute.

And it fit perfectly on my mini Ezekiel tortilla!

I topped it with goat mozzarella and the mushrooms

Rolled it up

And sliced it in half!

I had it with H2O and a side of a few many curry flavored Mary’s Stick’s and Twigs

~A Better Salad~

This is what my Friday afternoon’s look like:

Me, Whole Foods and my Chemistry text book. I usually eat lunch at home everyday. But Friday’s I have morning and evening class, so I stick around the area and go have lunch at Whole Foods and study.

My lunch is usually a mish-mash of things from the hot/cold bar. However, I’m never quite satisfied with what I get because the stuff I take usually doesn’t go together or I get bored with the same stuff all the time!

So, I was delighted to find an article called Build a Better Salad in the latest issue of Body and Soul magazine. It make me realize I wasn’t taking full advantage of everything the WF hot/cold bar has to offer! The article gives you step by step instructions on salad making and then provides tons of delicious salad ideas !

I tested out their Good Greek Salad

I used romaine, cukes, cherry tomatoes, red onions, chickpeas, feta, kalamatas from the antipasti bar and dressed it with EVOO, red wine vinegar and lemon juice.

It was SO good. Tasted just like a Greek salad I would get at a restaurant.

I’m definitely going to use more of their salad ideas both for my Friday WF lunches and at home!

 

Do you ever find that your salad bar choices just don’t go together?

What is your favorite salad combo?

 

Have a great weekend. I’m off to Hot Yoga at 5!
