10 day shred -- Learn those healthy habits

One of my main "rules" in maintaining / losing weight is to try to eat a large healthy salad each day for lunch.  Really... almost every day. 

Making these salads on Monday, I can grab healthy fast food each day of the week.

10 day shred at Panera Bread

It IS possible to eat breakfast at Panera and not totally crash on the 10-day Shred or other low carb healthy eating plan.  Just order any breakfast sandwich without the bread.  It comes in a bowl. (Tip from one of my piano students who works there). I asked for avocado and tomato as a substitution + ginger peach hot tea instead of coffee.
