Brussels Sprout Salad

I didn’t plan to blog today but I made this salad for lunch and thought it was definitely worth the share! I love when I can open a recipe book and find things to make that involve ingredients I already have in the fridge or cupboards. 3-4 ingredient recipes are my best friend (and ones I can normally manage without screwing something up) soooo you’ll be seeing a lot of those around here! I was feeling uninspired for lunch today so I grabbed this book and found this easy peasy brussels sprout salad. First of all, I might be so dumb but I didn’t know you could make a salad with brussel sprouts?!?! I was out of lettuce ALL week! Normally we boil or fry our brussel sprouts so it didn’t even occur to me to eat them raw in a salad! But it was delicious! So here’s what’s in it:

  • Brussel sprout leaves
  • avacado (only a few slices! I have a about 1/3rd of an avacado – it’s a healthy fat but you still have to be careful! ;))
  • pumpkin seeds
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Toss and done! I had some sliced chicken on the side as well for protein! Enjoy!!

Blog Launch!

I’m SO stoked to be launching this blog today! Living out a healthy lifestyle by being active daily and eating the right foods to nourish and sustain my body has become SO important to me. Encouraging and motivating others to do the same has become my BIGGEST passion over the past 4 months and that’s why I’m starting this blog. My goal is that it be an uplifting and inspiring corner of the web where I’ll be sharing my newest favourite recipes, fitness and every day fashion, real mom stuff, and my journey (both the successes and the struggles) towards being the healthiest I can possibly be.

As I launch, I’m thrilled to be teaming up with Albion Fit for a GIVEAWAY. I just adore like umm EVERYTHING in their shop and was thrilled to receive these amazing leggings to add to my spring workout apparel!  So light, comfy and can I say gorgeous?!? Albion Fit is generously giving a second pair away to a lucky winner who enters the contest on my IG! Good luck and thanks so much for following along!
