Farmers market season has arrived and I can’t get enough of locally grown fruits and veggies! Strawberries are the size of your palm and the mere site of freshly picked squash has me giddy. I’ve been making this salad a lot lately – it has incredible flavor and it’s easy to throw together for a quick meal.

Ingredients:  2-3 cups of bibb lettuce; 6-8 strawberries, sliced; handful of blueberries, 1 oz of crumbled goat cheese (my favorite is Belle Chevre made right here in Alabama), sprinkle of shaved almonds and 2 tbsp of Brianna’s Poppy Seed Dressing

Toss the lettuce, berries, goat cheese and almonds and top with the poppy seed dressing. And if you’re feeling extra hungry, add in some sliced chicken.

You’re welcome.

A Detox of Sorts

In yesterday’s post I failed to mention that over the weekend my feelings took on the appearance of pizza, pastries and generous pours of wine. While tasty, I am now craving healthy, wholesome meals to the point I think a detox of sorts is much warranted. After perusing the interwebs for some ideas, I came across this Inner Goddess Detox Salad from Iowa Girl Eats (a personal fave!) as well as a few other tasty dishes that I can’t wait to dig into. I’ve also got some green smoothies lined up for my morning drive and I just signed up for Bikram yoga classes (finally). I have a feeling I’m going to be praying for savasana 5 minutes in. Wish me luck! It’s been a long time since I’ve hit that mat.

How do you detox after a big splurge?
