I had a chicken salad sandwich using Arnold's sandwich thins, chicken tarragon with slivered almonds, a thin slice of white cheddar, lettuce, tomato, and onion. On the side I had 3 slices of honeydew and 1 serving of baked bbq chips. For a sweet treat, I had a 100 calorie pudding from kozy shack. It was pretty tasty!!

Love it! I skip the cheese (doesn't agree with me) and add a little roasted corn from Trader Joe's (comes frozen, I just nuke my desired portion in the microwave) and a few tortilla strips for CRUNCH.

Sometimes, I make tacos for dinner JUST so I can make taco salads for lunch with the leftovers! It's one of my favs.

I'm not really a huge taco salad person - but I do enjoy the naked burrito bowl things from places like Chipolte & Qudoba. I just get them with rice, chicken, lettuce, light cheese, sour cream, and 1/2 regular mild salsa and 1/2 corn salsa. Yummy!

I had a Subway 6" roasted chicken sandwich with tons of veggies and tons of Dijon mustard. It was sooooo good and quite filling! I know it's not as good as your salad, but maybe I will make your salad this week! Yum! I like that the Subway sandwich has 320 calories...that makes it easy for me to count. I also don't get cheese because it not only doesn't agree with me, but it also adds more calories and I can't really tell it's in there anyway.

Your lunch sounds fabulous and everyone in my family would gobble it right up!

Today a friend came over for lunch. I made salt and pepper shrimp served over a coleslaw (with a oriental type dressing). She made an avocado soup. Since we're both working on getting healthy (and in the process losing wt.) it was all filled with the right stuff.

Portion control and calories were kept under control and a good time was had by all! We had so much fun exchanging recipes that we have decided to do this once a month after the holidays are over. We'll both bring healthy recipes to the table to be sampled and enjoyed over lunch.

Win-win for both of us!

I way over slept today so I had a bagel w/1 tbsp of cream cheese for "lunch"

when I do taco salads i put only a sprinkle of cheese, and I add a serving of crunched up tortilla chips. the extra crunch is worth the calories for me.

I LOVE chicken taco salads.

My lunch was an enormous salad - romaine hearts, grape tomatoes, orange bell peppers, red onions, cut up clementine with balsamic vinegar. With a yogurt.

That was fabulous. But I really want to tell you about my dinner.

Homemade pureed veggie soup - soooo good. Fabulous homemade pesto on salmon fillet. It was delectable. Andd OMG - so good - I made zucchini ribbons. I sauteed a sliced onion in a drop of oil, then I added the ribbons and a clove of crushed garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper and a little Parmesan cheese. It's like I was eating an enormous bowl of the very best pasta.

3 1/2 years later and I am STILL amazed at how wonderful healthy foods can be . I am amazed and grateful to have discovered this.

In keeping with the South of the Border Theme...

Dinner was a WW tortilla stuffed with a third cup of black beans, some homemade chile verde made with super-lean pork, 1/2 oz of LF Monterey Jack cheese, topped with chopped scallions, halved grape tomatoes, a cup of chopped lettuce, fresh salsa and a TB of LF sour cream.

<berp> EXXXXX-cellent!!!!

I keep hearing about the wonders of zucchini ribbons and it sounds like something I'd totally dig -- I adore zucchini.

I guess I never really asked...how do you ribbon your zucchini? I have a friend that does it with a potato peeler, but is there some other trick to it? I keep telling myself I have to try it.

Yes, I use a vegetable peeler. I hold the zucchini straight up and down on one end. I rotate it and keep peeling and peeling away. Try it. Try it. Try it.
