Skinny and Clean: Hungry Grilled Romaine Salad

Summer is good for a lot of reasons...you feel really lazy, but you feel inspired to eat healthier. I don't know about you, but in the winter I want to make macaroni and cheese and carbs and more and more carbs. But in the summer, with the shorter hemlines come the need to eat healthier.

We are OBSESSED with grilled romaine....apparently this isn't as new of a phenomenon as I am making it out to be! But it is AWESOME.
