Mighty Mommy Monday

It’s Mighty Mommy Monday! Abbie of Farmer’s Daughter and I have decided to challenge you on a weekly basis.  Claim the Mighty Mommy title for yourself — every day, not just Mondays. Every week, we’ll host a link up for you to tell us what you’re doing to take care of your health: workouts, menu plans, how to keep your family active, etc. I’ve set a few goals for 2014, but my biggest is to swim a total of 30 freestyle miles this year AND run a half marathon in October! Join us!


This week, all I can think about is food. As I mentioned last week, I’m on a loaded salad kick. Tomorrow, I’m going to my first Farmer’s Market this season… can’t wait to get my hands on some fresh kale! I didn’t plant a garden and at this point, am not planning to do anything, but man I miss my kale! Grocery store stuffs just don’t cut it.

Today’s salad was a turkey club/cobb salad mix. It was excellent. For supper, I’ll be having this salad again. Fourth time in a week. I used roasted red pepper hummus, kale, blueberries, feta and chia seeds in addition to the chicken, cucumbers and tomatoes and cucumbers from the original recipe.

There was some corn at the grocery, so I‘m thinking I’ll make this as well. Short ribs are the plans for tomorrow night, so I’ll add the leftovers into what I send to work with Matt.

I bought sweet potatoes to attempt grilling. This recipe gave me the idea and then made think of a way to convert this into something to add to salad greens and chicken.

I used up the last of my homemade dressing, so I’m thinking I’ll work more on my southwest chipotle dressing. I’m hoping to get the {proverbial} wrinkles worked out. Until then, I want to try this one!

And because I cannot stop, I’m dying to try this salad for Father’s Day. The goal is to send Daddy and his boy off for a little golf date in the afternoon. Sneaking a little exercise in with all the fun! 🙂

This is the week of the salads, the week to attempt another mile or two in the pool and hopefully log plenty more miles on my tennis shoes. What are your healthy plans?

    1. You are genius! I was Panera this weekend and asked about the salad and the employees had no idea what I was talking about, so I would have probably NEVER discovered this on my own! I’m sharing it with EVERYONE!!
