Happy Biggest Loser Day all! You all really LOVE your salad dressings, but, honestly, I think you might just LOVE your Super Salad Containers even more after seeing your response to this week’s Super Salad Dressing Giveaway.
It really made me think ~ Are you all part of The Container Club?
I have to admit, I am a BIG fan of using containers and not just because I can be a little OCD about portioning out single servings. Honestly, it all started when I went on a mission to give up Ziploc baggies.
Then, I realized with my new job, I am going to actually be able to show you all how many different types of random containers I have LOL….gone are my days of having a fancy kitchen stocked with plates, forks and super cool spoons.
I am not sure if I will go back to keeping dishes at my desk ~ I kinda like the idea that I might just have to go shopping for FUN new containers like this one I received from my WW leader.
Containers are AWESOME not only for lugging things to work, but, they are perfect for leftovers!
Breakfast was leftovers from last night’s dinner ~ 2 Trader Joe’s Sweet Apple Chicken Sausages with 2/3 cup Southern Style Potatoes (8 points+)
They don’t have to be fancy like my Tupperware Vent n Serve above that I LOVE because it never stains, melts or leaks ~ you can put it in the freezer, fridge, microwave and dishwasher (side note!)
I totally have a cupboard full of Ziploc containers that are just as easy to toss in cut up fruit to add to any meal. They are perfect for freezer (you can toss them if you don’t remember what was in there) and for getting Thanksgiving leftovers out of the house.
Watermelon! Breakfast kept me full for 5 hours!
Several of you have asked me how I prep meals for the week. After I plan out my menu for the week, I cut up veggies, fruit and prepare anything ahead of time that I can like my FAVORITE “Slaw”.
This is the EASIEST mix you will ever make and can be eaten straight up with different dressings to make it a “slaw” or added to salads for extra crunch/texture. I also LOVE putting it in pastas, stir-fries and/or soups to bulk them up.
The BEST part is that you can prep it ahead of time and put it in one BIG CONTAINER for the week.
* 1 bag Trader Joe’s Organic Broccoli Slaw
* 1 bag Trader Joe’s Shredded Carrots
* 1/3 Red Cabbage, shredded (you can buy the pre-cut kind if you like)
I like starting my lunches with a big bowl of “slaw”.
Sometimes I add “extras” like these Spicy Peanuts and sometimes I don’t.
Plus 1 Tbsp Trader Joe’s Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette (2 points+ for 2 cups of slaw).
Paired with 1 1/2 cups leftover Bruschetta Pasta Salad. (5 points+)
I probably have just as many water containers as I do bowls LOL. This is my latest Sigg that I got at Whole Foods when they had a buy 1 get 1 free sale ~ I LOVE the small top for drinking and the large bottom to add ice.
Mid afternoon snack ~ An iced coffee and the Dots I won in training class (2 points+). I can totally be bribed to answer questions in class when there is candy involved
Did I mention that dinner was in a “container” too? A 100% compostable one……
Just your average delicious Chipotle Salad.
