Mediterranean Detox Salad

One of the top spots on my to-do list for Spring is always detoxing my closet. Going through and purging pieces I won’t miss, and adding a few fresh staples always sets a crisp tone for a new season. Between low energy, skin issues, and not feeling like myself as of late, I decided a revamp my nutrition, as well. I found a plant based 30 day program to promote energy, better sleep, weight loss, muscle tone, and clearer skin and relieve bloating and inflammation. Unlike “cleanses” I have tried in the past, this has been the easiest program to follow, (no counting, juicing, or meal skipping involved!), and I have felt not only full each day, but healthier, more toned, sans bloat and headaches. I’m not even half-way through the program, and I feel that it was exactly what I needed to get back on track with clean eating, and nutrition based meals, and a vast boost of energy!

My favorite go-to salad lately is a Mediterranean detox salad. It’s super simple to meal prep, without becoming soggy like other greens! Not only is it delicious, but there are countless health benefits to the ingredients. The versatility of the salad makes it easy to mix things up for the week, by eating the salad for lunch or dinner, or stuffing it into a grain-free wrap with a scoop of hummus for a protein packed meal! So so good!
