Superfood detox salad
You know those days when you just need to detox and get back on track? Maybe you indulged a little more than you intended, or had a bit too much fun the night before (have you tried my 3 steps for getting rid of a hangover yet?). Or the usual long weekends, vacations, getaways, and the holidays.
The best way to get back on track is to stop beating yourself up. Seriously. Stop.
I will wait.
Done? Good. That shit will only drive you crazy and make you miserable, and you deserve so much better than that.
Now jump right back onto your usual healthy routine without procrastinating. What does that mean? Lots of veggies! Lots of greens! Lean protein! Healthy fats! Antioxidants!
My superfood detox salad is packed with nutrients, antioxidants, and healthy fats for glowing skin. It is also full of key nutrients to support the liver in detoxifying previous over indulgences, helps you feel great, and of course is super yummy to eat. Especially when you pair it with my two minute Strawberry Vinaigrette dressing below.
If you like you can add some cooked lean protein of your choice, like hard-boiled egg, chicken, turkey, or salmon, to round it out as a balanced meal.
Doesn’t it feel great to be back on track? xoxo
