I am currently sitting here, trying to talk myself out of buying a new camera that will probably cost me around $1,000 Canadian dollars, just because I think it will make my Instagram feed look a bit better.
Also, lets not forget that I currently have an iPhone 6S, a Canon DSLR, a drone, the DJI Osmo, plus access to a slew of photographers who love to shoot fitness models.
WHY, oh why, do people always want more?! Trust me, I see the ridiculousness of the situation.
I also hate that my belief is that once I get this new camera, my feed/photos/blog will look SO good that I will obviously become successful, rich, famous, and therefore, happy. See? It all makes so much sense as to why I need to drop $1,000 for a new camera.
Realistically though, I am broke after buying a home, so I probably won’t be able to afford the coveted Canon G7 X. I will just have to wait until Christmas, or open up a donation page.
Back to this apple walnut salad (which is cheap, super quick, and SO. GOOD).
This summer has been the summer of salads. I’ve been trying out a new one every other week, because a) they’re light b) I can fill them with SO much goodness c) they’re easy to pair a protein with. I’ve been using canned salmon, canned tuna, tofu, and my favorite – grilled shrimps.
I cheated a bit with this one and ended up buying the ready-made greens mix, which is why it was so quick to make. However I did make the dressing from scratch, so lets not completely forget about my cooking skills.
In this apple walnut salad I added slices of Granny Smith apples, cranberries, walnuts, and some goats cheese for a bit of creaminess! The dressing is a light mix of apple cider vinegar, dijon dressing, and a few other ingredients.
As I mentioned above, I grilled a bag of shrimps and brought them on the side to eat with my salad. It was the perfect, well rounded lunch!
