Salad Accessories

Is it really lunchtime already?
I swear time really DOES fly some days.

Yesterday I stocked up on lots of salad "accessories"(toppings) to get me through the work week.

The biggest tip for healthy eating/living is making sure you never get bored with meals. 
Variety is key!

In the bowl:
*grilled chicken that was marinated in Italian dressing
*sunflower seeds
*sugar snap peas
*cherry tomatoes

On top:
This dressing is fantabulous, I found it during a Whole Foods trip on Saturday and even though we have several dressings in our fridge at the moment this one will be getting lots of use.

Knee Update:

I mentioned this morning I was going to the Orthopedic to talk to them about my current knee pain/issues.

Thankfully Lauren works at the office I went to because all of the doctors understood the workouts I do on regular basis before I even explained the issue I was having.

They did X-rays which came back normal so I am being sent for an MRI which is next Tuesday night. The PA thinks it may be a meniscus tear which would require surgery.
I highly doubt that is the situation. I am not in that much pain but I guess you never know?

In the meantime he told me to rest it when I can and take advil/ice it. I plan on sticking to my regular workouts, modifying moves as needed.

Speaking of workouts, it's time for Elevated Training!


  1. I just dealt with what they thought was a middle meniscus tear. I chose NOT to have the MRI & am, so far, healing beautifully. In fact, I rode 70 miles on Saturday and it wasnt even super sore. You do what's right for you; I hope it is NOT a meniscus issue!


    1. what are you doing to heal? I really do not want to stop my workouts/classes

  2. Fingers crossed that it's nothing too serious :)

  3. Ugh! Knee pain! I'm currently going through the rehab process. While I don't have anything meniscus related, it has taken time. Good luck!

  4. im very sorry to hear about your knee! i will be keeping you in my prayers! that salad dressing also looks really great. im going to have to look for it!! spa love!

  5. I really enjoy salads... sometimes. I'm bad about salad fails - putting things together that sound good in my head but turn out awful. Yeah, gotta' work on that.

    I hope the knee feels better soon!

  6. Wishing you nothing but the best for your knee situation.

    Salads are gross. LOL. I only like spinach salads, I can't eat lettuce. I know, it makes me a weirdo.

  7. That salad looks so yummy! I hope your knee heals up soon, good luck with the MRI, I hope it shows that nothing serious is going on. #SPAlove
