I made a decision about a month before coming home full time, that my lunches were going to be salads. After years of leftovers for lunch at work, I loved the thought of big crunchy bowls of salads with all kinds of veggies and fruit, so on my first day at home, I went shopping and filled the fridge with all kinds of salad fixins. The funny thing is that as much as I loved the variety of those salads, by the end of week one I found myself craving this salad over and over.
