Shortcut Chopped Salad

Leave it to the Whole Foods salad bar to help me make an awesome chopped salad.

DSCN2793 The reason why I call this a shortcut chopped salad is because I didn’t have the time or the energy to buy all of the vegetables individually and do the peeling & chopping myself. I went to the Whole Foods salad bar and filled up on the toppings I wanted for my salad… broccoli, peas, corn, feta, peppers, onions, edemame, and shredded carrots.

Lettuce is the only thing I like to chop myself. There is something about fresh romaine hearts that adds an entire new level to a salad. Getting them from the salad bar grosses me out for some reason.

I also got a roticerie chicken and an avocado.

DSCN2790 The rest was a piece of cake! I chopped up the chicken into bite size pieces and same with the avocado. From there, I put all of the veggies and chicken into my salad bowl and served it with a couple of dressings on the side. My two favorite dressings are Briana’s Saucy Ginger Mandarin and Trader Joe’s Light Champagne Vinaigrette.

This makes for awesome leftovers just made sure you put the dressing on the side so the salad doesn’t get soggy.

What would you put in your own chopped salad?

Get a body like Lady Gaga: Thighs
must be nice!
Here are my favorite thigh exercises that will have your thighs burning for days!

 I have no idea what this move is called so I’m going to name it the “high heels”Go on your HIGHEST pair of heels (like 6 inchers) then sink down until your thighs catch.  
Practice holding this move while squeezing your inner thighs together, make sure your hips are tucked under.
hold for 30-60 seconds Do this at home using a bar stool.
*BBF TIP: the higher the heels the thinner the thighs


Thigh dancing:
 Come onto your knees, with your heels lined up with your seat. Lift your seat off your heels and begin to tuck your hips. Do this about 30 times. 
Have fun with this move and also tuck side to side with your hands in the air and wave them like you just don’t care!
Inner thigh workout:

  • Lie on your back with knees bent, feet on the floor.
  • Lift your right leg so both knees are lined up together.
  • Lift yourself off the ground so your weight is on your shoulders.
  • Begin to lift and lower your seat about 1 inch.

Do this 30 times on each leg. feel the burn!
Have a great day!
