chopped salad!

We've posted this recipe before, but this week's theme for Stacey's Shred is to lose by addition. Instead of stressing yourself out by taking things away (and then ruining all your hard work by running back into the arms of cheeseburger and fries), make the addition of a salad and other healthy foods a permanent presence on your plate. This salad may look complicated but those looks are deceiving. Focus on adding positive elements to your life! It's an easy way to aid your fitness journey and self esteem.
