Weight Loss Support - I am definitely eating my colours. Are you, too?

I am running a little low on supplies and I won’t make to a grocery store until tomorrow (Saturday). Romaine lettuce and spinach are all gone. So my creative salad today consist of the following:
- red bell pepper
- orange bell pepper
- red beet
- grapes
- pine apple
- sunflower seeds
And for good measure, I tossed in a small handful of almonds, too. Mango vinaigrette. It’s very good and of course, I already had two colleagues asking me “what is THAT?” (pointing at the red beet). :dizzy:

And, to be in perfect sync, my toe nails are painted with OPI’s Miami Beet from the South Beach Collection. :D

Mmmmm :) Except for the beets lol ;)

My salad today was romaine, grilled chicken, corn, a few tortilla strips, salsa, and avocado salsa. MMMM Only 340 calories :D

Sounds yummm! Mango vinaigrette? That sounds super yummm.

Beets. I hadn't ever thought of adding that to my salad. Thanks for the idea! I'm definitely going to borrow it. :)

I too am often amazed at the colorful array of foods I am eating. And every now and then I will stop and think, "Wow. I eat really health-fully." Feels good. Tastes even better. ;)

I love adding beets to salad - especially with a little low fat feta cheese. I really like that combo.

I love beets :) I've grilled them and added them to a salad before, so good. Also, shredded beet salad is one of my most favorite things in the world.

Yesterday I made a salad and added mango to it. Today or tomorrow, I'm going to make a mango/papaya salad with cilantro and ginger.

Wow I am impressed and motivated again now. I am horrible at coming up with interesting food combinations and I get bored with my vegetables to say the least.

Nelie, what kind of dressing do you put on it? I have to try this!
