Confessions of a Cleanse

bekah General 2 Comments

Bry got the brilliant idea to do a 3 day cleanse and I agreed to join him, so together, we could jumpstart our squeaky metabolism. Around the grocery store, I pushed a cart, empowerment piling high as spinach, pears, and fresh ginger made a small mountain.

Belly-button Business

A little secret- I have an indie bellybutton.

It sorta does it’s own things, has it’s own vibe. One day it’s poking out, the next day’s it’s hiding. It’s a bit of a free bird, an artsy belly button if you will.

A Summer Salad Fave!!

Ever since Kim introduced me to this salad, we’ve been inseparable {the salad and I that is}… and I’m sure if we lived in the same town, she and I would be too!

Our poor friends ~ it seems any time we have company, I make this salad. My children are starting to turn a kale green color and I have lemons stashed all over the kitchen. Which is fine by me. It is summer, so we embrace all things salad, healthy, and freshly made!

Having company? You can’t go wrong with this delicousness! My favorite thing about it {beside the taste} is that it’s made right before serving so you can ask your guests to help you chop as you sip lemondrop martinis and wait for the steaks to grill. My mom-in-law taught me one of the key ingredients to Hospitality 101: always let the guest/friends help. No one wants to stand in your kitchen while you prep and chop. Let them come alongside and join the fun.
