Swiss Cheese and Cranberry Salad

Sharing is caring!

This story about My Life Ingredients is sponsored by Alpine Lace, however, like always, all opinions and words are 100% my own.

What do you fill up your days with?  I’m going to take a wild guess here and say it’s lots of cleaning, cooking, working and running errands.

Here’s what I’m hoping, though: that you also fill it with lots of snuggling, reading, catching up with friends, laughing with family and pursuing hobbies!

If you could write down the recipe for your life and fill it in with ingredients that were important to you, what would they be?

Are you following your own recipe??  No?!  Guys, why not??

I’ve been trying to live my life very intentionally lately and make conscious choices that fill my life with the ingredients I choose! The ingredients that are important to me, not just the ones that are necessary as part of the daily grind.

I want the ingredients of my life to be hanging out with family, laughing with friends, playing games, evening walks, painting, crafting and cooking in the kitchen with my girl!

And, of course, monkey bars!  Monkey bars should be ingredients to everybody’s life!

But in order to do monkey bars successfully (and not get stuck halfway! Ahem!!), you need to keep your energy levels up!  As part of trying to live more intentionally lately, I’ve been trying to eat more consistently.  I’ve been working toward 3-5 small meals a day rather than 3 large meals and then unhealthy snacks in between.

One of my favorite small meals that replaces what used to be a muffin or cookies, is a salad! This is my favorite combo and takes no time to throw together thanks to help from Alpine Lace Reduced Fat Swiss Cheese!
