Winter Salad

Chilis. Stews. Hearty soups. Casseroles. These all warm the heart and belly, however, too much of a good thing can work against the bod. As a result, I have been trying to do roasted veggie burritos, veggie stirfrys or curries and salads a couple of nights a week. These aren't the summer variety light version of each of these, but they are lighter than the other fair.

Last night we had my winter salad for dinner with a homemade loaf of French bread.
The salad is:
Chopped romaine
Crumbled bacon
Diced chicken
Diced pears
Dried cranberries
Poppy seed dressing

That is it. A simple, fresh meal with something for everyone. It is nice to feel refreshed after a winter meal and to get that crunch that only greens and produce can give you.

Tonight...lasagna...after swimming.


  1. After all the rich and heavy food over the holiday's I was ready for juicing and salads. I have been eating nothing but fruits and vegetables all week and already feel better.

  2. me a good salad. Never thought about cranberries though...gotta try that
