When you're through the Midwest, you understand that there's an enormous discrepancy from when the calendar says it's officially springtime to when it actually gets warm away. Some years it simply goes from Winter to Summer in the span of a week. This Spring has been kind though, it's been warm and beautiful here in Chicago for a few weeks now. Actually, I just started running outside again and have already made it up to 5 miles. Another plus is the fact that I defeat my average speed from Fall, that is AWESOME. Regrettably, ever since I put to quit yoga exercises because of my neck and back problems, I discover my hip flexors and butt to become extremely tight after running. I do move both out, but obviously need to discover other stretches to greatly help me. Suggestions welcome and appreciated! Besides exercising outdoors, another thing I love about Springtime is all of the fresh, seasonal make. In order to help you save money and eat seasonal, I decided to share the best veggie-packed, nutritious spring green salad with you. It's inspired by various travels to the local salad pub where I always spend wayyy excess amount. A wonderful way I've saved cash is by buying my groceries off Peapod (they will have great sales) and making my meals in the home vs. going out. In the event that you didn't already know, I am partnering with Peapod for nearly a year to help produce recipes for his or her new site! There are lots of delicious recipe suggestions on , so hop on over if you get the opportunity! Why I love this recipe: It allows me to food prep a healthy salad full of fresh ingredients. If you are headed to a spring party or potluck, it also makes a remarkably colorful salad platter. It's naturally gluten free of charge & vegan-friendly (just leave off the feta!). There's a lot of nutrition and fiber within this salad from fresh produce. The basil lemon dressing is absolutely killer! I enjoy serving it with grilled chicken or salmon for the protein packed supper. Another great facet of this salad is you could help to make it your very own. Add more toppings if you want!
