Lunch is always a difficult meal for me to get inspired about. Midday, I want something light yet filling, fresh and satisfying that will last me through the afternoon. Salads are always a good go-to lunch option but most are uninteresting and ultimately unhealthy, which completely defeats the purpose of eating a salad in the first place. This salad is not one of those—it is flavorful, healthy and a lunch you'll be excited to dive into!
January is a hard month. It's right after the holidays. We're all a little heavier and have a little less money. It's cold and sunny days seem few-and-far-between. The "winter blues" have set in. I've found myself having to make an effort on a daily basis to stay motivated and have to make a conscience effort through the cold months to keep my energy up.
As this blog showcases, I have a HUGE sweet tooth. I get asked all the time how I stay slim when I am baking almost everyday. First, it's all about moderation: A little bit of everything and a lot of nothing. Taste everything, eat nothing! I love to try everything but usually just a couple bites satisfies.
