Spinach Strawberry & Walnut Salad

Summer salads are the best! Although Summer has come to an end, you can still play around with versions of this salad through the fall. You can swap out the strawberries for a fresh in-season chopped apple.

4-5 cups Spinach
1  1/2 cup sliced Strawberries or 1-2 apple chopped
Chopped Onion
Other add-in options: walnuts, sunflower seeds, sliced almonds

Dressing: (this will probably make more dressing than you want on the salad)
1/2 cup Extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup Balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons Sea salt
1 teaspoon Onion powder
1 teaspoon Garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Ground pepper

The Perfect Green Smoothie

You will be jazzed up with vitamins, quality food and on your way to health. I have used different variations of veggies, fruits and milks (coconut, almond, hazelnut) to create the perfect smoothie. But I think I have it down.

Leaf parts of kale (don’t use the spine of the kale)

1/3 to 1/2 of a banana or 1/3 avocado for thickness
handful of blueberries
