Wilted Spinach Salad
AllRecipes has a healthy recipe that includes fresh vegetables and some protein. This recipe makes 8 servings. You will need:

* 6 eggs
* 1 pound of bacon
* 2 bunches of fresh spinach (rinsed and dried)
* 4 green onions (thinly sliced)
* 2 more eggs (for the dressing)
* 1/4 cup of white sugar
* 1/4 cup of white vinegar
* 1/4 cup of red wine vinegar

First, place 6 eggs into a medium saucepan and boil them. When they are done, remove them from the heat. Cool them, peel them, and chop them. Next, place the bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium heat until brown. Drain the bacon, crumble it, and set it aside. Save about 1/2 cup of drippings in the skillet.

In a large bowl, toss together the spinach and green onions. Heat the reserved drippings over low heat. In another bowl, whisk together the last 2 eggs, sugar, white vinegar, and red wine vinegar. Add this mixture to the warm bacon grease. Whisk for a minute (until thickened). Pour at once over the spinach. Add the crumbled bacon, and toss the salad. Garnish it with a chopped egg.

Romano Bean Salad

* 4 teaspoons capers
* 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
* 3/4 teaspoons grated lemon rind
* 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
* 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil in a saucepan. Add the beans, 2 tablespoons of salt, and garlic. Cook for 8 minutes (or until tender). Drain, and then plunge the beans into ice water. Drain again.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
