So I went to Panera Bread the other day and enjoyed their Fuji Apple Chicken salad. I have to say it was yummy. But after I went to the website and read the nutritional content I was less than pleased. A 500+ Calorie salad and a ton of ingredient names in the dressing I can't even pronounce. Although one that I can pronounce is Propelyn Glycol, which is found in lighter fluid. Uh, yeah... I don't think so.
So I took it upon myself to make a similar salad.
Romain Lettuce (they used mixed Spring Greens)
Pecans (just a few per salad)
Dried Apple Chips
Gorgonzola Cheese (just enough)
Rotisserie Chicken (Breast only No Skin)
Donna's Fake Fuji Apple Dressing (6 servings) 2 T. Olive Oil 1 T. White Balsamic Vinegar 1 T. Apple Cider Vinegar 1 T. Garlic Powder 1 T. Onion Powder 1 1/2 t. Dijon Mustard 3 T. Organic Frozen Applejuice Concentrate

I have been a long-time fan of MC's sports bras; they are a less expensive alternative to the Enell and keep *things* in place just as well. The Maia is my favorite -- I swim, bike and run in them without any discomfort. I am still on the hunt for a good high impact racer-back bra for a D.
I ordered my shorts but was on the fence with regard to sizing. I call the folks up at Moving Comfort and they were nice and helpful. The customer service rep suggested the MCW version, when I told her my issues and how I am right on the tail end of regular sizes. So I went with their a "MCW" collection. I'm glad I did.
It was nice to know that the MCW version was exactly the same tech-wear, just sized for the fuller figure and 1/2" longer. I really appreciated that the fit wasn't just a larger size of the regular sized version. They took into account the areas plu…
So I got my BodyBugg a couple weeks ago. I've been wearing it fairly routinely, but didn't really journal my food that well while I was traveling.
The reason we decided to take the plunge and purchase it was because 1) it was on sales for $199 from $299, and 2) we thought it would help get a more accurate picture of what I was actually consuming and burning. We figure my weight loss stalls because the significantly large deficit creates that ol' "starvation" mode. This tool will help, as best we can given my altered plumbing, to close the gap but still allow me to remain highly active and "fuel" for training more appropriately.
So the idea is, you wear this band that looks similar to an mp3 player on your arm all day. It calculates the calories you actually burn (it's supposed to be fairly accurate). Concurrently, you journal you food. No big deal to me since I do it anyway -- I just had to learn to do it throuhg Apex's website. Apex makes/markets…
