What's For Dinner?

During baseball season I have found myself eating the same thing for dinner pretty much every night. Whether Andrew is home or away, I generally eat dinner alone (unless there's an off day)! That's usually when I’ll splurge (i.e. sushi & dessert)! 

What I like about this dinner dish is that I can seal it up and take it with me to the game, I can prepare it days in advance and store it in my fridge, or I can eat it on the spot while listening to his game at home!

It probably won't surprise any of you that this dinner that I eat every single night… is in fact… wait for it… a salad! I love salads. I load them with so much protein, healthy fats & veggies that I am uber-satisfied when I'm done! The dish looks a little something like this:

  • 1 cup of chopped romaine & spinach
  • 1 cup of roasted vegetables (Generally a melody of broccolini, red peppers, zucchini, squash, carrots, asparagus, Brussel sprouts (when in season)) 
  • 1/4 avocado 
  • 3 oz. rotisserie chicken
  • 1/4 lemon squeezed on top

Sometimes I add a salad dressing depending on my craving that day. Also, I will occasionally add hard boiled eggs for more protein! Most of the time a squeeze of lemon and the flavor of the vegetables is enough for me. But I can completely change the flavor of the entire salad by simply switching up the dressing. If I am craving Mexican, I will add a green salsa. Other days I might add red wine vinegar, or my Dijon Mustard Balsamic dressing, or Annie's Goddess or Shiitake Sesame dressing. 

I like roasting enough vegetables to last 3-4 days. This makes preparing the salad that much easier AND I can add them to my egg white scrambles too:) 

This is a great meal that checks off tons of nutrients boxes:

  1. Good fats (avocado)
  2. Lean protein (chicken)
  3. Vegetables galore! 

Enjoy!
