Gotta have some heat

For lunch, chicken salad sounded perfect.

Especially after the HUGE sugary brownie I inhaled right before.

I don’t wanna talk about it.

Let’s talk about healthy salads.

  • Lots of Spring Mix
  • Chicken Salad
  • Crushed Kettle Potato Chips
  • Chopped Hot Cherry Peppers
  • Balsamic Dressing

Of course I needed some heat.

I crave spicy and it’s beginning to take a toll on me.

I honestly haven’t noticed a difference until I started having chest pains while running.

My doctor had me start Prilosec OTC and it’s helping.

Therefore – these chest pains seem to be the result of the increased levels of spiciness in my diet within the past 6 months.

Gahhh I just cannot help myself!!!

Whatever these peppers aren’t that spicy…

Good salad. And I am now eating a clementine…again.

God I need to stop eating too many treats! I am not talking about clementines, but the dang brownies & cookies. Once I get back to school, I will be away from these never-ending snacks. Thank GAWD.

I will attempt to restrain myself from another pumpkin cookie today, but I’m not sure I have the willpower. Someone help me!

It’s warm out so I should go for a run, but I’ve been so consumed with packing all day to go back to NYC on Sunday. Once I start being productive, it’s hard to stop. And once I stop – there’s no starting again.

I just found two large bottles of hot sauce I bought to bring back with me…haha…

I hope you are enjoying this lovely day!

Keepin’ it Fresh

I have a problem.

I cannot stop eating these vegetable chips.

Clearly…because I demolished them in less than a day.

Polished them off by sprinkling the rest over my salad.

  • Spring Mix
  • Balsamic Dressing Spritzer
  • Tomatoes
  • Mom’s Homemade Chicken Salad (uh-maze-ing)
  • Veggie Chips

Clemintines on the side.

This bad boy was so juicy. I’m about to eat another.

Is it just me or does my hand look like its a chubby baby hand?

I’ll embrace it.

ANYWAYS – I’d say this salad was a success.

Chicken salad + Crunchiness + Perfect flavors = Happy Casi

I love being home because I have so much to choose from. Usually when I am shopping and cooking for myself, my lack of income tends to hurt me creatively when cooking. It doesn’t help that an oven isn’t always available.

Only 2 more weeks until I’m a struggling college student again!

I’m excited!!! For real though, I am. NYC is calling my name so loudly right now.

So is Whole Foods…my one true love.

I hope you aren’t as cold as I am right now.

Have a wonderful evening! 🙂
