Nothing better on a Sunday night after a long run, than a massive (and I mean massive, I don’t do small) salad paired up with whatever meat you have in your fridge. I happened to have left over lamb ribs, so it turned out to be a perfect match for my Greek inspired salad. I can have this salad every day. Seriously, I don’t get sick of it. Sometimes I throw in a different ingredient to mix it up, sometimes I’m missing a staple, but just put something else tasty in and it’s still a winner! As you may have noticed, I’m not big on quantities. That’s just because I never now how much I put in of stuff. It’s usually a handful of this and a bit of that. Then taste and decide what you need to do. If you don’t taste your food, you won’t know what you are serving up! Therefore, take a bit of
Baby spinach, tomato, red onion, cucumber, avocado, feta cheese (I only use Dodoni – it’s the best!), sun-dried tomato (because it’s so tasty! I buy the one that is not in oil, because I don’t know what quality oil they use), dried oregano (I’m lucky enough to get some great quality Greek oregano, tastes delish), sea salt and olive oil (also directly imported from Crete, finest quality and veeeeery good! I know, I am spoilt!). I didn’t have any today, but kalamata olives goes very well too.
Then you do like this:
Sooooo tasty! And it goes with anything. Steak, chicken, lamb, fish. And probably even tofu, I have honestly never tried! And it’s so easy and fast you can do it in your sleep, no excuses not to have homemade dinner. You can have the meat cooking while you chop! Looks good doesn’t it? I just smashed that whole plate! Mmmmmmm!!!
Over to some fantastic news (speaking of Greek food…), I am going to Greece in the end of July! Can’t wait!! The Bikini Body Stress is upon me and I have to remind myself, it’s ok. I am fit, healthy and happy. Nothing to stress about! And I get to eat Greek Salad every day! And lie on the beach 🙂 Whiiii!! Then going to Norway for a wedding and to visit friends and family! Can’t wait for that either! Hopefully get to hike in some beautiful mountains in crisp, autumn air then!! After that we are not sure where to go, but will probably have a week where we can go wherever in Europe. Any tips on where’s good in mid September??
Tomorrow I will be one third down in the 30 Day Yoga Challenge! My Something Every Day today was a yoga class in the morning and this evening I felt like moving so I went for a run. Noticed a little knee pain (insert lots of swearing here!!!!) so took it pretty easy and did run/walk intervals and finished with sprints. It turned out to be almost 10kms, so pretty happy with that! What did you do for your Something Every Day today?
Now I am going to chill on the couch and I thiiiiiink I will make some of this while doing a little research on France in September. *Dreaming*
