Im starting my third week of eating super clean in the new year. I have to admit, outside of a chips and salsa hiccup this past weekend (it’s truly my kryptonite), I am really doing pretty damn well. Getting to the gym with consistency is always something that I will have to keep working at, but the eating is going swimmingly.

Detox Power Foods SaladSo sfter getting my face stuck in the chip basket on Saturday night and the soul crushing defeat of my precious Seahawks on Sunday- I need a detox- (tummy and soul)- and I am going about it with this Detox Power Foods Salad. Detox Power Foods Salad

I basically piled every nutritious, delicious bite from my fridge and tossed it all with a zesty lemon vinaigrette. It turned out as a brilliant, tasty salad packed to the brim with color, texture and majorly healthy ingredients.

If this can’t get your Monday off to an amazing start, I don’t know what will- enjoy!
