This salad has potatoes in it.

It took for-ev-errrr to get home from work tonight. Drove home from CT and hit traffic... so, no boxing for this girl. A late, at-home workout was my best option. I decided to start out with some pull-ups (guys, I can do two in a row now - woooot) and then hit the mat with burpees, squats, bicycle kicks, etc. I mostly did this workout that I posted last year. It's one of my favorites. Check it out and let me know what you think.

                                                                Ab hold!

I was craving a lean, mean salad (probably because I knew there was goat cheese in the fridge). So, while I worked out... I toasted up some chickpeas that I had already pre-baked (o/o, salt, pepper, any herb you like at 350 for a half hour) and also thinly slice 1/3 of a sweet potato with o/o & salt and threw them in the oven at 425 for 20 minutes. 

Then, I started to build my salad:

Almonds, cranberries, baked chickpeas, sweet potatoes, grape tomatoes, organic baby romaine & spinach, goat cheese, extra virgin o/o, and balsamic. Healthy standouts: Fiber, Protein, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Antioxidants, Calcium, Iron, Lycopene & MORE.

Andddd done... in minutes, really. It was absolutely delicious... the addition of the sweet potatoes, goat cheese, and chickpeas really make it! This meal is loaded with nutrients and is also vegetarian.
