Salad Difficulty and Walking Club!

The grocery store can be kind of a daunting place when one is trying to lose weight. I found myself there last weekend incredibly upset for some reason. I think this problem stemmed from not having prepared for going to the grocery store. So I was fine in the produce section. I am a fruit and veggie fanatic and always have been! That was one thing my parents never had to shove down my throat. I love it all. Okay, not all of it because I haven’t tried it all, but fruits and veggies are all made of YUM!

After I get through produce, I start wandering through isles. I get through most of the store and I was really bummed: I hardly had anything in my cart! So I start wandering back through the store again and was upset walking past:

These used to be staples for me. Easy to grab and shove in my mouth after a long day at work.

100-Calorie snacks are now my staple, but not without a little pain.

The thing about the 100-calorie snacks is that sometimes they aren’t enough. Sometimes I wish they were 150 calorie snacks. It is good portion control, but often I find myself wanting more.

Another struggle of mine is making salads.

Looks delicious, right?

And then add a little dressing? Even better!

There is one thing missing: PROTEIN. For some reason, I highly dislike protein on my salad. I get Cesear Salad without chicken – and really most salad without meat. The only type of salad I don’t eat meatless is Taco Salad. I am not sure if anyone else has the same issue, but I would love to know. So this then stems into a problem of having a wonderfully colorful salad full of fruits and veggies, but lacking the protein the keep me full till my next meal (or small snack.)

How do you like your salads?
