Happy Monday friends! Only four more days of hotel living! I’m anxious to get back into a normal eating routine of prepping and cooking my own meals. I’ve been “vacation eating” for the last ten days and I think my body hates me.  

Last week however,  I made this super simple, superfood salad for lunch because I was just craving something green, something clean!  After hitting the fast-food drive thru for my kids (yep, totally that mom this week) I ran and grabbed a few ingredients from the grocery store to make a light and refreshing salad.  That just so happens to be packed with fiber, antioxidants, and vitamins K and C.  And it’s so simple I threw it together in my itty bitty hotel kitchen with just a few ingredients! 

It was just what I needed.  And what I might need everyday for the rest of the summer :)

The greens: baby kale and finely chopped brussels sprouts. 

The goods:  oranges, cranberries, and pecans. 

All tossed together in a super simple Orange-Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette.
