spring awakening


Every Spring, I am inspired by all the fresh produce to create beautiful salads.  I have embraced eating as much fresh, live, raw ingredients and benefits are endless.  My skin is clearer, smoother, softer.  My mental clarity feels more alive and in focus.  It all has to do with simple acts of radical self care.

Simply combine three or four ingredients to compose a salad and create your own light salad dressings using lemon, apple cider vinegar and olive oil.  Taste the fresh melange and admire the colors.  Peel Cucumbers, clean and shell fresh peas, wash and slice radishes, add fresh lettuce and herbs, and prepare a platter of Spring.

Are you inspired by all the freshness of Springtime?  Does Spring awaken your creative spirit?

Home before dark,
Yes, I try when possible to get organic and also add a bit of apple cider to my daily water and dressing.
I also love it for soaking my feet.

We've been mostly vegetarian for the past five weeks and we're amazed at how simple, fresh food has changed our health. The new recipes we've adopted have gotten us out of our food rut. A great salad a day is always on the menu!

The salad looks so fresh and delicious! Although yesterday was more of a soup day, the salad looks perfect for today. Enjoy this sunshine! xoxo

I so agree with you.. I have slowly moved to a plant-based diet and the more fresh fruits and veggies I eat the more energy I have. no doubt. Wish I started doing this years ago!

if that tiny little salad filled me up it would be a miracle! and i'm pretty sure that the dressing i would douse all over it would cancel out any benefits of the greens! ha ha xo
