Salad Spinner

I don’t know how many heads of lettuce I have thrown away in my lifetime. I was probably over thinking things in terms of how to properly store lettuce. Several years ago, I found out about the salad spinner and began using it to store lettuce for use during the week.  After washing and tearing lettuce into bite sized pieces, place it all in the spinner.

After spinning it for about 30 seconds to a minute… you are left with this…

Discard all of the juices and store your lettuce in the salad spinner.  It makes it really convenient to add lettuce to your meals throughout the week. Simple and easy! (Mine is the OXO Brand)

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!
