Yummy lunch!

It’s no surprise that I will do just about anything to avoid actually doing my work.  I mean, people can’t be productive all day, right???

While perusing the internet, I inspired (and my stomach started grumbling) as soon as I saw the amazing pasta salad posted by the Fitnessista! I love pasta salad in the summer but don’t necessarily think about making it a whole lot when it comes to fall/winter.  But, like typical Indiana – our temperatures have been in the 80s, which I think is hotter than it was all summer.

So, I made my own little delicious lunch! I didn’t follow the Fitnessista’s recipe, but made do with what I had! The best part about pasta salad is that it’s delicious right after it’s made, and it’s even better after it has sat for a day in the fridge!

Here’s what I added:

  • a mix of noodles to finish off what was already opened…
  • 2 roma tomatoes
  • half of a GIANT green pepper
  • a can of chickpeas (drained and delicious)
  • 2 pieces of chicken breast (leftovers)
  • 1 T of ranch dressing
  • 3 T of italian dressing
  • Bragg’s organic sprinkle seasoning (no measurement, spread til I was done)
  • Fresh basil off my plant

So easy, delicious, and [relatively] healthy! The unhealthy part is that it’s so delicious I can’t stop eating it. Everything in moderation, right? Ha! 🙂

Have a great rest of your day and weekend! Try out some pasta salad and let me know how it goes!

  1. Looks great! The colorful presentation really adds appeal to this dish. I’ve been craving pasta salad for a while, but the mixes off the shelf are always so disappointing :p This is so much better.

    1. Yes! And SO easy to make! You can literately throw so much in it depending on your mood! My go-to is always salami and cheese ((fat kid at heart)) but I wanted a little healthier option this time around!

      Try it out and add something you wouldn’t normally! For me this time, it was the basil. 🙂
