I started the new year off like many people, with the goal of losing weight this year. So far, I haven’t done very well.
While I did get off to a good start, the past several weeks of snow, ice and winter germs have prevented me from getting to the gym. Sounds like excuses, I know, but it’s the truth.
So while we’ve been snowbound so many days, I’ve baked sweet treats, whipped up my favorite pasta dishes and other high-calorie goodies, and I haven’t been very good at avoiding temptation.
That’s why I was pretty excited to hear about Fresh Express’s new 30-Day Salad Swap.
What is the 30-Day Salad Swap?
This has to be one of the greatest ideas ever…seriously. It’s so simple, but I think this could be very effective for me and many other moms.
Fresh Express has challenged people to take their old high-calorie favorites, like a bacon cheeseburger, and turn them into a salad with the same flavors, but without all the fat and calories. So instead of eating a burger at around 1,000 calories, I can eat a salad with tiny meatballs, cheese, crumbled bacon, and tomatoes at only 410 calories, but still get the taste of the bacony burger and walk away satisfied.
Told ya, it is genius!
The best part about all this is that I will be feeding my body more of the nutritious greens that it wants and needs, and Fresh Express makes it super easy for me.
Fresh Express salad mixes are all pre-washed and dried, then packaged in their “Keep-Crisp®” bags, which allows the salad to breathe, keeping the greens fresh without preservatives. I love that I don’t have to take the time to wash, dry, chop and store lettuce, which is probably the number one reason why I don’t eat salad more often.
This past week, I decided to try making a salad for lunch with the Fresh Express Baby Kale Mix. I had been out all morning running errands and I was tired and hungry when I got home, so I wanted something quick and easy.
I pulled out my Fresh Express salad mix, along with some sliced London Broil that was leftover from dinner the night before. After adding some organic grape tomatoes and sliced cucumber, I had a low-calorie, high protein lunch that also happened to be delicious!
Fresh Express offers a huge variety of salad greens, including organic salads and their ready-to-eat kits (I love the Caesar Lite kit!)
How can I participate in the 30-Day Salad Swap?
