Strawberry Orange Spinach Salad

I am currently on a never-ending quest to get in the mood for summertime. I realize we are getting closer and closer to April which means only one more month with the potential of snow! It’s staying brighter out longer and it’s slowly starting to warm up. Automatically, my spirits start lifting. Throw in a salad with fruit and I am instantly reminded of summer and that we are just a bit closer to it! Something about salads and fruit remind me of summer. Maybe it’s cause they’re cold, or there’s so much more fresh produce available in summer. Or maybe it’s simply the fact that all I ever crave in the summer is salads, fruits, and smoothies. Whatever it is this salad gets me one step closer to summer and I’ll take whatever I can get!

Steak and Spinach Salad

Happy Tuesday! Started my morning off with a fabulous CrossFit WOD…an AMRAP 20…and refueled with a smoothie…

postworkout smoothie

Recipe to come tomorrow for my first what I ate Wednesday!

The nutrition challenge is going well so far! I’ve been trying to eat as strict Paleo as I can and while the first few days are always the hardest, it’s starting to get a little easier! I am really missing cream in my coffee though

Today I wanted to share a really easy Paleo and gluten free dinner option. You can make this with grilled chicken or fish on top too!

steak and spinach salad

ย Ingredients:

3/4lb Steak

Baby spinach

Diced bell pepper

Chopped mushrooms

Shredded carrots

2 tbs. Orange juice (fresh squeezed)

1 tbs. Olive oil

Black pepper

Makes 3-4 servings

Served with Portobello Mushroom Pizzas (Recipe to come)

Preheat a grill pan and spray with olive oil. Cook the steaks 3-4 minutes on each side until desired temperature.

While this is cooking combine baby spinach, shredded carrots, bell pepper, and mushrooms in a bowl.

Combine the orange juice, olive oil, and season with black pepper to make a dressing.

Pour over the vegetable mixture.

Serve the steak on top of the veggies when done.

These pair great with my Portobello Mushroom Pizzas. Hope you enjoy!
