Now I know that I say that I am living breathing proof that you can be a successful and powerful person while giving into your devilish side too, but there are some days, weekends, or even weeks that you need to just give it all up. This weekend was certainly that for me. After working so much, such ridiculous hours and all the crazy expectations the past few weeks, I haven’t had a moment to relax. Not one. I took this weekend to do nothing. I couldn’t even write a new post!! I used to feel so weird if I wasn’t being productive or partying my life away on a weekend but now? I use it for rest and relaxation that I never seem to achieve.
Besides sleeping for most of the weekend… (when I say sleeping, I mean knocked out for most of the day and night), I use weekends that I am home and being lazy good for grocery shopping, meal planning and binging on the fresh produce you can find at Farmer’s Markets.
Especially making fresh fruit, veggie and protein salads for the summer that you can take out and snack on at anytime. Below are two salads that I frequently make and use as leafy green salad toppers. Kale, romaine, mesclun, and baby spinach are all different greens filled with fiber, nutrients and a lot of flavor.
Summer Corn Salad – Corn, red onions, peppers, parsley, cilantro, garlic, onion powder, sriracha, butter.
Cucumber Dill Salad – Cucumber, red onion, garbanzo beans, dill, greek yogurt, garlic cloves, onion powder, celery salt.
I have MANY recipes for fresh salads if anyone finds them to be of there liking with specific ingredient amounts and such. I was trained in the kitchen and have a spectacular eye for culinary expertise! I will be starting to post the best recipes I can come up with to keep better track of the things that I love! It will also go along with my challenge for the week. Eat fresh everyone! 🙂
