Best Salad on the Planet, Yall!

Today is day four, and it has been a good one. I have been eating a lot of fresh fruit for snacks. Gala apples are really yummy right now, and so are fresh cherries. This morning for breakfast I had a bowl of cereal and turkey sausage links. Lunch was a chicken sandwich on bread that I made at home with pickles and lettuce. I even had portion of baked french fries. Then for "dessert" I had a banana. Tonight for dinner I had....the BEST SALAD ON THE PLANET!

Chick-Fil-A's Southwest Chargrill  Salad
Only 240 calories and SO SO GOOD!

If you have not tried this salad, I highly recommend it. For a fast food salad, it is above all others. The lettuce is always crisp, and fresh. It has a spicy chargrilled chicken breast sliced on top of shredded cheese, shredded carrots and cabbage, plum tomatoes, and my personal fave...this corn/black bean mixture that has this secret sauce thing going on. This salad can easily be eaten with no dressing, it is that good. But I like to eat the Fat Free Honey Mustard packets that they offer for another 60-120 calories extra depending on how much of it you eat. They also offer sesame seeds and tortilla strips that can be added too. So enough of my commerical, but I felt the need to share a good healthy food that is one of my faves.

Hope you are doing great too! You are worth it! :)

  4. Sounds like we're in a pretty similar boat! I also have 100 pounds to lose (and would love to do it in a year!) and I'm following the Weight Watchers system as well. With lots of support, I know we can both do this!!

    I've lost and regained weight several times in the past, but this is the first time I've tried blogging about it. I'm still surprised at how much it's helping, even though I'm only at the beginning of my journey. Welcome!

  6. Thank you ALL for the great support! Thanks Pam! You are the best! :)
