Starting Jan 1st, not only will I start the new year off with a bang by becoming Vegan (again… I know…sigh… more on that later!) but I am joining in on a easy 30 day healthy challenge.
I am an avid reader and keep a long list of blogs and sites on my Google Reader (RSS Feeder). One of my favorite blogs is Hair Health and Harmony. The fabulous Nicole Melton is the founder. She is starting an easy challenge on January 1st by eating a salad every day for 30 days!
For the month of January, join in on the #saladjam challenge. It’s very easy and a great kick starter to your new year’s diet resolutions. I decided to pass along a few tools and gadgets you should have before starting the challenge. I also included Nicole’s tips and tools as well.
Alex’s Must-Have Tools For Making Salads
As Seen on TV – Vidalia Chop Wizard
I love this chopper so much so, I even bought Whitney one for Christmas!! I chop a variety of vegetables such as cucumbers, onions, carrots and bell peppers within seconds. The consistency of all of the items I chop are perfect! You can find this at Target and Bed Bath and Beyond for $19.99.
Rubbermaid LunchBlox™ Sandwich and Salad Kit
The Salad and Sandwich kits are perfect if you are planning to bring your salads to work or are on-the-go. I have the sandwich kit because I keep my lettuce in a separate bag. Both kits are a must have and cost $12.99.
A Large Bowl
From eating or mixing your salads, a large bowl is essential for preparing and serving. I recommend choosing a mixing bowl since it’s big and can hold large amounts compared to traditional plates and smaller bowls.. Check out your local dollar store, Dollar Tree and Family Dollar for affordable options.
