To be totally honest, regular salads really bore me sometimes. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but the one thing I ALWAYS tell my patients is to make healthy eating exciting! Bring a lunch to work that makes it easy to resist the temptation of ordering pizza ♀️ This steak salad is soooo good, it has me counting down the minutes to meal time!
