I'm so happy to be 'back on track' with my one salad per day rule. A salad a day makes me feel awesome, okay? (Maybe we should have t-shirts made?). Even though I feel like the combinations I put together for my big bowl of leafy greens are obvious, they totally aren't, so I'm starting to share some of these blends with you like my bacon plum bowl or even my crab salad. Everyone needs a recipe to start!
First let's talk about my latest greens mix addiction. I know Costco seems cray-cray for a house of two, but there are some definite good, healthy buys to be had there including bulk quinoa, salmon, dried fruit, cottage cheese, etc. Typically we'll pick up the organic spring mix, but this time Costco had a Power Greens blend from Taylor Farms organic filled with baby swiss chard, spinach and baby kale. YES. I am so excited about this blend because they baby versions are not tough, not bitter and so simple to use. Basically, there's no excuse to not use them. Because they're filled with dark greens, they are an amazing beauty food. I strongly believe that having clear skin and the really kind compliments I get about my skin are partially related to my leafy greens intake. So bottom line, buy the greens.
