Since we started Weight Watchers, both Jason and I have been taking a lot of salads to work. My salads usually include a bunch of veggies, something for protein (usually a can of salmon/tuna or a veggie burger) and then some light dressing. Pretty filling and low in points. It always seems like by the end of the week, we were out of salad supplies though.
So I went to Costco. And I think I might have gotten a little overzealous. There are only two of us who live here.
2.5 lb bag of lettuce:
1 lb tub of spinach:
5 lbs of baby carrots:
4 lbs broccoli:
I probably should have taken pictures of all of this stuff next to other things for size comparison because you can’t really tell that these bags are Costco sized. Aside from making a sizable dent in the broccoli (I love just roasting it with some salt and a sprinkle of nutritional yeast), suffice to say, we have a lot of produce to consume in the next couple days. I’ve been adding spinach to my eggs in the morning…
and making meals that use a lot of produce (there’s a bunch of spinach that you can’t really see under the beans in the middle)…
but I kind of think I went overboard. I mean, did I really think I was going to eat 5 lbs of carrots? I guess there’s always carrot juice.
