Recipe

I had a couple of indulgent days. A weekend away with a best friend, free from counting points and watching what I ate. Also full of lots of sunshine, a little too much wine, and more amazing conversations than I can count. Nothing is better than catching up with an old friend who has moved far away for the weekend. However, coming back I am definitely feeling like I need to cleanse for a few days. Not a full on cleanse, just lots of greens and the occasional cookie in all likelihood. In my opinion, days or weekends like this are actually a healthy part of any diet as long as they don’t happen too often. We all need them to not feel like we are missing out and sometimes they actually help me stay on track in the long run because it helps me realize how much food really does affect my energy levels. This salad is perfect on it’s own have a few servings for a few meal, or great as a side dish, appetizer, or tossed with some chicken or shrimp.
