Wow….here I am in week 2 of my salad challenge! I really can’t tell you all how much I am enjoying creating fun & new salads, adding things I would have never added before. Great way to become more creative with my cooking & food prep. I did today’s salad for lunch because I am [...]
Most of the gluten-free/Celiac community is aware by now that General Mills is an amazing company and is modifying it’s current ingredients to make some other Chex cereals gluten-free. As of June 1, 2009, the following flavors should all be gluten-free:

Okay, so I am a little behind! LOL! I am catching up now!
Tonight for dinner I made these amazing Butternut Squash Fries. I love Sweet Potato Fries, so I figured these would be right up my alley, and they were. Best part? Only 65 calories!!!! We had them along with our pulled pork sammies [...]
Today I came up with a bit of a twist on my salad. I really wanted a salad, but I had leftover grilled chicken and cooked buckwheat that needed to be eaten. I decided to combine it all into one huge cooked salad! I had leftover veggies from the veggie tray, so I sauteed up [...]

Saturday was a busy day. We had Jon’s b-day cookout planned, so lots to do. I did manage to squeeze in my salad challenge salad at lunch time, though. I also had a salad with dinner at our cookout, though it was just mixed greens, spinach, mushroom, tomato & broccoli. Still a salad.

~2 large handfuls of arugula & mixed Spring Mix
~ 2-3 oz piece of chicken breast marinated in Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce
~1/4 cup buckwheat [...]
I am so loving the salad challenge! Today I had a salad for lunch that consisted of just spinach, grape tomatoes & pine nuts with a drizzle of Light Creamy French dressing. This doesn’t really count in my salad challenge as it doesn’t meet all my “requirements“.
For dinner I had a more hefty [...]
