detox - day one

Happy Monday! Christos Anesti!

How was your Easter? Our little family hosted some friends for lunch, and we all celebrated Resurrection Day by eating (too much) together and after that, taking naps in a clean, quiet house.

Down to business now. I've started the Arbonne 30-day detox program, and I'm really excited to clean my body of all the yuck building up since Eleanor was born. I never really committed to getting back into a healthy eating pattern, and the time has finally come. Yay!

The program lines out a lot of "avoid" foods, and that of course means you have to tweak a lot of recipes you currently use and look for new ones. So naturally, I started a Pinterest board of detox recipes. What else does a girl do in 2014?

I made this Quinoa Avocado Spinach Salad this weekend, and it's a keeper! Follow the recipe as-is, or sub lemon juice for the vinegar like I did.

Feel free to send strong, healthy vibes my way. I'll keep you updated on my progress and share recipes as I audition them.

Bon appetit, darlings!


  1. Ahhh! So glad you liked the quinoa salad! Wishing you luck and good health with your detox! :)

  2. We had quinoa salad with our supper last night! Buuuut, this recipe looks way better! Must try soon! :)
