- baby spinach
- 1 boiled egg
- cheese (I used colby jack - my fave)
- fresh pears (I always have some on hand to make Eloise pear compote)
- walnuts and pecans (100 calorie bags I had in the pantry, although I don't add these if I know I'm going to want some pistachios later as a snack)
- Newman's Own balsamic viniagrette
After my 14 miler Saturday it is what I ate and it was fabulous. What I wanted was a hamburger and french fries (I was reeeeeeeally hungry, having not eaten enough for the race or the 14 miles), but this salad was a much better choice.
If you want to make your own power salad, a good rule of thumb is to have lots of your favorite salad things on hand, hanging out in the fridge. Or you could go out and get these exact ingredients and give mine a try. I promise you it is fabulous! Happy Tuessday!
