Not so careful

Yesterday I gave into a craving for KFC. I was just hungry for fried chicken. Now remember, I said everything in moderation. I know KFC is high in fat content so I was careful to only have 2 chicken legs and a serving of green beans. I also ordered one of their new boneless filet's to go. Those are really good. I've not tried the grilled ones because our KFC doesn't have the grilled options on anything. However, hubby tried one up by Chicago and said they were nasty dry. LOL So I will enjoy them in moderation. I'm thinking no more than 1 every couple of weeks on a big salad.

Anyway, I ate the KFC and felt AWFUL! So won't be making that mistake again any time soon. I think part of it came about because it was the only thing I'd eaten since my 1/2 of mini bagel with peanut butter at 6 a.m. Not a lot down there to absorb the grease, ya know.

I did enjoy the filet chunked up on top of a large chef salad for supper and felt much better.

I am eating more salads. I worried I might burn out on them so I keep mixing them up a bit, adding different toppings. I always have lettuce and tomato. Sometimes I'll add diced cucumber, chicken breast, ham, mixed greens and hard boiled egg. I can't wait to plant the garden and have lots of FRESH vegetables to choose from.

What do you like on your salads? Share your suggestions and help keep me on track. ;-)

Enjoy the journey


  1. Hubby's favorite salad is spinach greens, mandarin oranges, red onions & slivered almonds. If you want to make it a meal, add bacon or turkey bacon.

    Cheating is a GOOD thing, so long as you jump right back on the wagon. =)

  2. The more veggies on a salad the better! I like cucumbers, zucchini (raw, hate it cooked), green peppers, broccoli, tomatoes, onions and nuts.
