Toss Your Salad

The days are getting longer, summer's here and that means our outfits are getting smaller. We all want to look hot & fit, feel healthy and reveal lots of skin to be bronzed by the sun!

I'm a huge advocate for exercise of course, but your abs start in the kitchen.  Sure you could just "get busy" on the counter and burn calories that way, however you're gonna work up an appetite so let's eat something nutritious.

Toss your salad! Haha yes get your favorite greens, vegi's & toppings and make a beautiful medley. I'm not the type of girl who gets full on a salad, I totally get it if you need "food", something to sink your teeth into but try starting with a salad.  It will prep your stomach for the main course & tell heart disease and cancer to bug off!

Get your digestion moving and help metabolize whatever else follows. Greens are full of fiber and you know what that means...less crap staying inside of you to bloat and piss you off.  Move over milk these leaves got plenty of calcium, iron, potassium and B vitamins = energy! Get creative and throw in a few different lettuce varieties, who says an orgi is just for the bedroom!  Think outside the greens...add in beans for more protein, fruit to take care of your antioxidants and even seeds. Avocados are full of the good fat, omega's and considered nature's lubricant. Seriously! Google that little tip.

I've got a super easy, healthy salad dressing for you here! Don't ruin your salad by slathering it with artery clogging store bought dressing. Press play...

You just gotta say no to some of your favorite friends and hang with them as a special treat.  I am all for a "cheat meal" it's just gotta be worth it! Tweet me your fave salad combos: @JillAnenberg
