Summer Salad (By Natalie)

I own a book called Skinny Chicks Don’t Eat Salads by Christine Avanti. Why the heck not, Christine Avanti? I love salads and I think they’re a great lunch or dinner option in the summer because when it’s 95 degrees out, like it is today in NYC, I don’t want to eat much else. A salad is cool, I can throw a lot of great veggies and protein in it, and it’s deliciously hanger busting.

Here’s the salad I made today:

It’s vegetarian and vegan friendly to boot. Here are the ingredients I used:

  • Romaine lettuce
  • Sliced cherry tomatoes
  • Sliced cucumber
  • Half an avocado
  • Almonds
  • Sprouts
  • Dried cranberries
  • A dash of olive oil
  • A dash of salt and pepper
  • Freshly squeezed lime juice

You guys, this salad was fantastic. It filled me up and it was refreshingly delicious. Look at all of the nutritious veggies! You can fill up for less calories the veggie way. Your tummy, your hanger, and your waistline will thank you. Hanger free!
