Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad

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.

Happy recharging!
