Hi I'm Shannon! I'm 21 years old and recently graduated from college and moved to Ft Lauderdale, Florida where I live with my boyfriend right on the beach. I'm working on maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle while getting leaner, fitter, and stronger by lifting heavy weights and eating mostly high-protein, lower-carb and averaging 2500-3000 calories per day. 5'8, 142 lbs, 38-25-28, size 2-4.

Yesterday I really wanted to eat lunch at Aruba, a nearby beachfront restaurant, so I could have their “Strawberry Fields” salad with blackened chicken, which I am obsessed with. But we didn’t get up until 3:30pm and my boyfriend had to work at 5 so there wasn’t time. At first I was really upset (hello PMS!) but then I realized I could probably recreate it myself and save some money too!

I bought a container of mixed spinach and argula; added strawberries, blueberries, walnuts, feta cheese, and pre-cooked grilled chicken strips (which I heated in the microwave); and tossed it in lime juice. Then I brought the container down to the beach with me to eat! 

This salad was delicious and very easy to put together! The precooked chicken strips are a good choice if you don’t have an oven, and tossing the salad right in the spinach container saves on cleanup and makes it easily portable. It would be a good meal for someone living in a dorm room!
