Recent Meals + Quick Stop At Trader Joe’s


Recent meals! Let’s get started.

I had two dollars off a salad at Panera so I purposely worked from there during lunchtime the other day in order to take advantage of the deal.

Another week, another salad from Chopt. This time, I went with spinach, romaine, quinoa, avocado, corn, sweet potatoes, and beets. Mexican Goddess dressing on the side.

We went to The Cheesecake Factory the other night. I think these are the Mexican lettuce wraps from the Skinnylicious menu (not totally sure of the exact name). I just know that the chicken which is usually in the lettuce wraps was brought on the side, per my request since I don’t eat it.

Back to my usual barbecue ranch salad.

Lunch at The Little Beet while in the mall. This is the veggie plate (which is what I always order) where you can choose three vegetable options. I chose a cucumber salad thing, roasted broccoli, and the beets and lentils. On top is the avocado bean dip.

And here’s a quick stop at Trader Joe’s! I only needed a few things because my son is leaving this weekend and I will be away for a few days too. Not looking to fill up the house with food, just filling in so we have enough of what we need while we are here.

In fact, I bought the ground beef because he really does love my hamburgers and thought he would want them before he leaves but I haven’t made them just yet which means I will probably just freeze the package.

Also in my basket from Trader Joe’s:

Dr. Praeger’s veggie burgers

Frozen blueberries

Organic butter lettuce

Chocolate chips

Whole wheat English muffins

It’s worth noting that I am still obsessed with my heart flip flops which are making an appearance in the above Trader Joe’s shop! Maybe I should order another color, certainly can’t beat the price for the cuteness. 🙂

    I am very late in commenting hehe, but I’ve been catching up on your blog posts steadily after for some reason I stopped receiving them in my inbox (Weird!)
    I wanted to ask, how do you use the butter lettuce? Do you just make salads with it? I find the texture is a bit different than what I’m used to in salads, so I’m always confused hehe.

      So my son loves the butter lettuce for salads. I usually make it for him with chopped up hamburgers or veggie burgers — the texture is soft but i think it’s good in a salad! Try mixing it with romaine, maybe?
