Those scones from yesterday got you feeling a little thick? Yea, me too. I always feel like I need a re-start button on Monday.
The fact of the matter is, when I am at work, I keep a tight schedule of what I eat. It’s all green juice this and almonds that. You probably wouldn’t even know who I am. During the week, it’s so much easier to keep yourself on a good schedule than the weekends. I pretty much have 2 different lives.
Weekend Whitney is all CHEESE CARBS MEAT NOM. Then Work-Week Whitney is all Green Clean Balance Boo-Hiss.
I told you, who am I? But the truth is, we all do it. We all have splurge days and days where a salad actually sounds good. Weird, right? And today, I have the perfect re-start your monday salad. It’s chock full of great things, from blood orange to pistachios and shaved brussels sprouts and a light and refreshing champagne vinaigrette that will knock your socks off. And if you want this be vegan, just hold the parmesan.
