This week our weather is kicking it in to high gear again. We were in the 50's this last week, and this week it may even hit 90 degrees. It's crazy - I'm not quite ready yet for summer weather! It seems as if every year I vow to be in better shape before the season begins, and every year I am not quite where I'd like to be, but I continue to make little changes to keep me moving in the right direction.

I've mentioned before that when the weather warms up we eat a lot more salads. They are easy and so versatile that I could pretty much eat one for lunch any day and not complain.

In fact, I made this Bacon Mango Salad the other day and it's always one of my favorites. How could you go wrong with bacon? There is also mixed greens, mango, pecans, and feta cheese. I top it off with a poppy seed dressing and it's always wonderful!

 A lot of the time I'll drink iced tea with my lunch, but every once in a while I'll get a craving for a glass of soda. I rarely drink pop anymore, but when I do it's almost always one of the TEN Calorie sodas that can be found at Safeway. They're guilt free and taste really good!

In fact, right now through the 19th at Safeway you can get a TEN Calorie product free on the Just For U website, while supplies last.

  2. Mango in salad sounds like it would be delicious! I've never tried it like that. To get the idea, perhaps I could try it with turkey bacon since we don't eat pork. But it does look really refreshing and healthy :) Thanks for sharing this with us at Countdown in Style!

  8. Wow... the salad looks AMAZING. My husband would love it! And, I'll have to check out the sodas. Lately I've been craving soda like crazy and I try to avoid the high-calorie and the diet. I'll have to check out the types of sugar used. Thanks for sharing!

  9. I had to check this out.. how can you go wrong with bacon. My husband just bought some mangoes too, so I think this will be our dinner tomorrow. We don't have popp seed dressing, but that's easy enough to get. This looks delicious and deliciously simple. Thanks for sharing with Countdown in Style.
