ChopSesameMisoWednesdays are my busy day. I get up very early and jump in the shower so I can get to Publix when they open. I want to start early so I can start finding deals before it gets too crowded. It takes me a while to track down all those unadvertised deals. Some days I can be there for 3 or 4 hours…or more! If I have a big shopping list it can get quite hectic. By the time I am done, I am often starving.

So what do I do? I pick up a Ready Pac® Bistro® Bowl™  from the produce department and enjoy my lunch at the picnic tables outside of Publix while I type up the unadvertised deals. As you can see, today I opted for a Sesame Miso Chopped Salad. This is one of my favorite salads!! This one has lots of crunch from napa cabbage plus romaine lettuce, carrots and red cabbage. There’s also chicken, edamame, almonds, sunflower seeds, wonton strips and it comes with a sesame ginger miso dressing! It’s packed with flavor yet only 280 calories.

Sesame Miso Bistro BowlYou guys know I have been working very hard to lose weight. I love that so many of you have been emailing me all kinds of encouragement–thank you…it really means so much! The main thing that has made the most difference is that I am eating lots of protein and veggies. I have a salad almost every single day for lunch and often again for dinner. The Ready Pac® Bistro® Bowl™ varieties are my favorite option as they are pre-made and ready to go.

My main problem is that my eyes are often bigger than my stomach. When I go to make my plate, I think that I am so hungry and put too much food on my plate. Portion control has always been my nemesis. The Ready Pac salads have been a dream come true! The bowls are the perfect amount of food. You get a hearty serving. Enough that you are full, but not stuffed. Plus the flavors are absolutely fantastic. Since each one is less than 300 calories, you can’t go wrong no matter which one you choose!
