Day 7: Chef Salad Pita Pockets

We’re at the final day of our 7-Day Salad Challenge. I started think if we should go out with a BANG on this. However, it came to mind that eating healthy, balancing proteins and veggies and getting creative in the kitchen doesn’t need to be celebrated like a party. It should be promoted as something to incorporate into your everyday life. This is the lesson we have learned

So rather than try to get all sophisticated, we decided to just make a simple chef’s salad. The only twist was to serve it in a pita with homemade dressing. Keeping it easy and light on a Sunday night was the way to go this time.

With that, we conclude this 7-day challenge and start on a lifelong one.
