Guest blogger Alexandra Suazo is back with another post of the Salad Challenge. As she recently started a weight loss endeavor (you can see her first post here), Alex is back to bring us up to speed on her latest salad addiction. You can follow Alex on Twitter at @la_suazo. We at Fresh & Co. added a little Twitter contest to the bottom of her post as well. Read on to learn more!
Designer what you may ask? Designer SALADS! As if we all don’t love drooling over Madison Avenue’s most desired designers… here’s the chance to feel as exclusive when you EAT! Luckily, this won’t be as stressful on the checking account, either!
Hit up a Fresh & Co anywhere between noon and 2 p.m., and you’re looking at a hefty salad line… and why? These designer salads are perfection and solve the same old salad problems whether you are faint-hearted or someone who can’t deal with a limited number of toppings either available, allowed to mix in, or both. In a crazy twist of irony, the longer the salad line, the better! You have just a little more time to decide on the delicious already mixed designer salad options.
My black label, red-bottom designer salad of choice? The Aegean Salad. For the weight losers out there that know a salad isn’t JUST greens… you’ll probably be a little nitpicky about most of the salads available. Not to say they aren’t healthy but depending on your diet to maximize weight loss, you may skip out on some of the goodies.
This is how I order MY Aegean Salad:
… no cheese is the key takeaway, and order it with the suggested low-fat lemon vinaigrette dressing. Maybe throw some almonds in there for a little protein and TA-DA! Enjoy with a side of black iced coffee or unsweetened iced tea. Way better for you than designer “therapy shopping” AND it’s healthy!
