The Salad Case: The Ninja

Workout: 30 minutes at-home weight session
Calories: 2100

First off is this week’s yummylicious salad case!

In the mix today:
  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • 1 cup roasted brussel sprouts
  • 1 cup roasted bell peppers
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1/4 c almonds
  • splash of feta cheese
  • 1 egg
Oh so good, no dressing required :) I actually prefer to warm this up in the microwave for a bit, it adds so much to the flavor of the roasted veggies.

How was your weekend? I worked all day Saturday so mine went by way to fast and it was jam-packed with action. Hmmm, jam!

We ended up going to the Humane Society's Walk for Pets and it was so much fun. I meant to take my camera but forgot it, which may be a blessing in disguise. It was the first time we went on a family outing with the baby, the dogs and lots of other people. We survived and had a blast - the doggies were happy tired last night.

We needed to make a Sam's run and I was looking to see if they had any food processors. I love my Bullet and the tiny one my Mom gave me, but I need more processing power if I'm going to be able to maintain my raging nut-butter addition. As we were walking down the isle, the clouds opened and a brightening ray of light shone unto this:

The Ninja - Rule the Kitchen - 'nuff said!

It was $49 for a version with 4 different containers with blades, I couldn't find it online but this was the closet to it for less than half the price - Ninja Chop!

We were discussing buying it when this lady rambled on and on about how Consumer Reports had given it the highest rating. She also went into how she doesn't sleep and ends up buying all the stuff they sell at night; which included the Bullet that she likes but what she doesn't like is that the protein powder she uses for some reason ends up getting into everything...

You get the picture, right? I gotta give it up to that rambling lady, cause when I asked "Can we get it???", RC said "Sure!" I need to get that lady on my speed dial, specially any time I try to make my case for an outside pool or better yet:

Would you ever buy one of these for your home? I always wonder who buys them and what they really think of them. Can you tell I'm missing the pool right about now? I went from swimming 3x/week to 0 - I just can't get it into my schedule without having to sacrifice Brielle time (hence all the at-home workouts).

The good thing is that we're off to San Diego for vacation this week! That's right beach - I'm looking for you! Thursday can't get here fast enough!!!

How was your weekend?

ADios :)
