Fight the Frump during that Meal Time Slump!


We all know how it goes, too much to do, too little time to do it. Since Fighting the frump is all about feeling faboulous! about yourself, you have to start with the basics. Like eating well! Now, tsk, tsk, I know it takes time to cook a good solid meal time that most of us can't always squeeze out during the week.

That is why I love the awesome book called Simply Salads. This book is truely awesome the whole idea is that when you are out grocery shopping you grab a bagged salad, a couple 'fancy' ingredients, toss 'em all together and VOILA! a good healthy piece for your meal!

Now lets think about it. How do you feel after you eat fast food? If you're anything like me you feel a bit guilty that you just put THAT into your body. I mean who really needs 80% of their daily salt intake in one meal?!

Leave me some of YOUR favorite quick easy books, I'll be giving away a copy of Simply Salads to a randomly selected winner on March 1st!

Don't forget to check out the other awesome Frump Fighter's over at Mrs. Fussypant's Blog!

I love yummy salads! Very cool.

I guess my favorite cookbook is my Better Homes and Garden from my sister.

For quick and easy, I use There are some awesome recipes there, easy and supa-fast.

Although lately almost all the new recipes I have tried came from the Pioneer Woman.

I have cookbooks, and love them, but online has been my "cookbook" lately.

My favorite "quick easy" book is Rachael Ray's 365 No Repeats. There are a lot of ways to vary basic recipes, and nothing takes too long to cook.

DH makes some killer salads, but we could use some inspiration! Another Rachel Ray 365 fan here...

I have a lot of books that remain unopened because they are overwhelming, but salads...I might actually have skills for that.

I love cookbooks. However, I'd have to say my favorite "cookbooks" right now are the Taste of Home recipe card books. They are roughly the size of a Readers Digest and I find mine in the check out lanes. I think the most recent one is a crock pot recipe collection. Lost of the recipes look to be quite healthy or easily made that way.

I'd love the salad cookbook so please count me in.
