CARS banner and diet

All my nephew's are having CARS parties this year for their birthdays.  Guess my little boy is the odd one out, as he wants a dinosaur party. My sister lives in Ontario and for me it is just too expensive to be able to fly back home for their party.  My sister is doing a combined party this year as her little boys turn 1 and 3.
My sister in law here is having a CARS party in a month.  I made this hoping one of them wants to use it.  My son loves CARS but apparently every little boy goes trough a stage where all they love is trucks or dinosaurs so i guess that is what we go with. Who knows maybe he will want a cars party next year!

As for me, i have decided to start a diet. Maybe not diet but better eating.  I am trying to cut out starch, breads and carbohydrates.  I can not totally cut out dairy or protein. Breakfast is fruit and 1 cup of coffee.  Lunch is protein and veggies and some more fruit. And for dinner i am trying to eat a salad ever night so far two out of three nights have been successful. So hopefully i can share with you the salad i have made.
Here was Monday night and the salad i had tonight.
 Spinach, basil and radicchio lettuce.
1/2 cup of fresh cut strawberries
1/4 cup peppers
1/4 cup cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup fresh mangoes
2 tbsp toasted pumpkin seed
1/2 cup of breaded chicken breast cut up
11/2 tsp olive oil and vinegar

Spinach, romaine and basil
1 whole avocado
1/2 cup fresh strawberries
1/2 cup fresh pineapple
2 tbsp of toasted pumpkin seeds
1/4 greek feta cheese
11/2 tsp olive oil and vinegar

If you have any interesting, filling, healthy salads feel free to share with me.
