Week 1 of my official journey with The Green House Salad Co was not my finest I have to admit. I was on a staycation at the Remington Suite Hotel & Spa so I really didn’t plan the week well. Also some health issues popped up so I wasn’t able to exercise as much as I would’ve liked. I went walking one day, but that was about it. The lack of exercise isn’t the end all in my book, but I also didn’t get my schedule together to replace three of my meals with The Green House Salad Co salads. I only visited them once, but when I did, it was delicious!

On my visit I picked the Maneater pictured above, but I replaced the croutons with wonton strips. My dressing of choice was ranch and my drink of choice was the cucumber mint infused water. I only used one of my dressings and only ate half of my salad.  What I love about the Maneater is that I don’t feel like I’m missing anything because this salad is jam packed with meat, seafood, eggs (are eggs a meat?), and of course greens. The chicken and shrimp aren’t bland either so I don’t feel like I’m skipping out on seasoning for the sake of being healthy.

The other days of the week, I didn’t do TOO bad about food, but again it wasn’t my finest. On Monday, I had some jalapeno, cilantro mussels from Wine Country. OF COURSE I ate the truffle fries and requested some bread to sop up the broth. Keep your judgment to yourself here. The rest of the week I cooked easy dinners at home, including salmon and roasted chicken. Friday, however I DEMOLISHED 10 blue crabs from B&D Seafood, LLC. It was boiled seafood so it HAD To be healthy right?!

This week was definitely more eating than exercising though not the most terrible eating that I could do. Check out the calories from my Maneater above in the Signature Salads column. I’m happy to report that I have already gotten my schedule together for my salad replacements this week and I am looking forward to trying some new salads and some new exercises.

I asked on my Facebook page about who has yet to visit The Green House Salad Co. Inviting my friends to dinner at The Green House Salad Co is NOT a part of my partnership with them, but because I believe so strongly in the brand, I want everyone to try them at least once. Even if you’re not into the healthier you track, the salads are just freaking delicious!

I’ve been asked a few questions about The Green House Salad Co, so I thought I would post them here with some answers

Q: “I went to Greenhouse once. The salad was good but the place smelled like shrimp so I couldn’t really enjoy the experience. Does the place still smell shrimpy?”
A: No it doesn’t smell shrimpy. While they do serve cooked shrimp on several different salads, the air does not smell shrimpy. Maybe they had just cooked some shrimp before the visit.

Q: “Do you really like the salads there?”
A: Yes I really do. The salads taste fresh and delicious. Also I like how bright it is inside of the place.

Q: “How late are they open?”
A: Their hours are Monday-Saturday 10:45 am-8:30 pm; Sunday 10:45am-2:00pm

Sooooooooo who has never been before and when are you available to go to dinner there?
