Healthy Living Challenge: Wk 3

This is week 3 of my 6 Week Healthy Living Challenge. Please check out the link if you are viewing this for the first time.

Last week I ran 3 times with my 4 year old and husband as we pushed our youngest daughter in her stroller! It was fun :)

As far as eating salads for lunch, it was a success for 5 out of the 7 days :)

Meatless Monday, has been switched this week and last to Meatless Tuesday :)

Below is this week's lunch menu:

(FYI- If I am in a time crunch, or am missing an ingredient, I make due with substitutions. I am looking forward to trying some new salad recipes!)
