Sometimes you just get tired of plain salads, right? I know I do. So recently, I was looking for a way to spice them up from the usual while still keeping them healthy. I’ve been doing more cardio lately with P90X, and it was pretty obvious I needed some more carbs in my diet, so I decided to make a healthy try adding a mix some rice to my salad – a sort of salad, rice bowl mash up. And you know what? It turned out to be pretty darn tasty!
I don’t know about you, but during the summer, I feel a lot less inclined to get into a hot kitchen to cook up something in the oven – besides easy things like cookies or my peanut butter banana bread, anyway. Lucky for me, my boyfriend Sean is an expert griller, and even better he enjoys doing it. No lie. My dad’s never been a big fan of the grill aside from a few times during the summer, so I didn’t know what I was really missing until we started dating and Sean introduced me to the beauty of a perfectly grilled rib eye. In fact, we grill at least once a week in warm weather. Which brings me to my post for today: the perfect summer salad to compliment your grilled meat.
