Sunday Detox Salad





If you're anything like me, you tend to eat fairly healthy throughout the week right up until the weekend hits and then all bets are off. Weekends often consist of brunch with friends, dinners out and about, or just not wanting to cook period. This leads to the Sunday evening reality check when you realize that hot dog you had for lunch or the extra scoop of ice cream you simply needed probably wasn't the best idea and now it's time to get back on track, aka the Sunday detox. In the winter, I love to go for a simple homemade vegetable soup, but spring has sprung my friends and it's salad time!

A friend referred me to this delicious power-packed salad and I decided to give it a whirl. Kale, carrots, and hemp seeds keep it packed with protein and nutrients while the apple cider vinegar delivers fabulous detoxing benefits. And did I mention, it's delicious? The best part is, it's easy to store and it gets better over time so, you can make a big batch and eat it all week long.






It's impossibly easy. Simply whisk together the dressing from the wet ingredients, mix the nuts and veggies and combine. Voile, you're a chef!

  1. I just took a mini vacay this weekend, and of course, healthy eating was not happening. Will definitely need to try this salad this week!
