We’re committed to a healthy lifestyle and eating right but we have to admit that eating healthy can sometimes be a drag. Yogurt, greens, and 90 calorie granola bars are great and all but let’s be honest – the thought of pizza can sound pretty good after a morning of trying to eat right. Here at KJ, our favorite way to stay fit and trim but also satisfy our taste buds are salads, particularly, the Strawberry Walnut salad from one of our go-to recipe sites “Sumptuous Spoonfuls” (picture below).
All you need is a basic salad mix (we personally love arugula and spinach) as well as strawberries, almonds, feta cheese, and balsamic dressing. Mix it up and serve it chilled! We also like to add some sautéed onions for a little burst of flavor.
You can find our other favorite recipes and low-cal eats on our Pinterest page! Let us know your favorite salad recipe too!
