A Yummy Salad I Had to Share

I'm trying to get better about sharing random tidbits on here like I used to. I find myself waiting for a lot to have happened before I sit down and write a post, rather than share it, even if it's just one thing. I think Instagram has taken over so much that I don't feel the need to re-share it on here. I'm going to try to be better about it because I would like to blog more often!

Ok, so this is a salad I throw to together at home and it's SO good. I'm always looking for ways to incorporate more vegetables in my diet. I'm actually not a big salad eater and would rather drink my greens than eat then. Which is why I drink a smoothie everyday, it's insures that I've eaten some vegetables each day! So if you are also trying to eat more plant-based but need more options, I recommend this salad. The veggie burger I use is the Dr. Praeger's California Veggie Burger that I buy from Costco and it's amazing. It's made with actual veggies, you have to be careful because so many are just full of soy and fillers. It has 7 grams of protein so it keeps me full, too. You can cook it in the frying pan but if I'm pressed for time I don't hesitate to use the microwave. I throw it over a bed of mixed greens, then top it with feta or any type cheese, tomatoes, you could also add cucumbers and avocado. I then sprinkle some hemp seeds on top to add fiber, protein, and fat, and then drizzle some Garlic Expressions dressing over it.. By the way, the dressing is out of this world good. It actually makes me want to eat salads- it's THAT good! I find it in the refrigerated salad dressing section at Harris Teeter or Whole Foods. 

Also, feel free to leave in the comments any topics you want me to blog about or any questions you have for me. You may have noticed I got a new blog template, too! It needed some sprucing up!

  1. I LOVE garlic expressions and have been buying it for like 15 years, it's been a hidden gem! I will definitely try the veggie burgers...I've never tried one I liked, but not giving up yet!
