Spinach salad recipe

Spinach salad recipe

Hello friends! How are you all?! I’m doing great. Still going strong on my workouts and eating better. Today actually marks a month till my 40th Birthday. So I have 30 days to get into better shape. But I’m happy and feeling good now. So that will just be a plus. So since we are on the subject of being more healthy, I wanted to share this salad recipe. My mom has been making this salad for a long time. It’s usually made for Easter Sunday and Thanksgiving. We love it. I wanted to share it with you all, since it’s easy and I’m all about easy recipes. So here it is!

First you’ll need the ingredients. I’m the type that if the ingredients is a long list, I usually don’t make it. I stick to 5-6. And this one is about that. You’ll need:

  1. spinach you can do the bagged kind or the bundle. I prefer bagged spinach because regular bundle spinach is super dirty and that just takes more time to wash.
  2. Red onion
  3. sliced almonds
  4. bacon
  5. dressing, you can make your own or buy it. I like the one pictured.

Once you have your line up, Cook the bacon first. I think it’s easier to chop it like the way I did here. Once it’s cooked all the way remove from pan and remove the bacon oil keeping some in pan for onion and almonds.

Second chop red onion the way I did here and add to the pan that has a bit of the bacon oil. Add the sliced almonds as well.

Third you want to sauté the onion and almonds together until the onions are a pretty golden color. Once those are done add the bacon back into mix together.

Fourth add dressing to your spinach and give it a mix. I like to mix it first with just the spinach before putting in the bacon, onion and almonds. Once you’ve added the bacon, onions and almonds, give it a good toss and wallah it’s all done.

Enjoy it with a nice baked chicken breast and you have a filling and healthy dinner.

My go to Green Smoothie recipe

Hello Ladies! So how is 2019 treating you so far?! I think we should all be given some time before we start all that fresh year business, LOL! After the end of the year madness with holidays back to back its exhausting! So if you haven’t started that new diet or added that workout to your day, Don’t feel bad you have time to start! And don’t be so hard on yourself! Take your time and ease into it. Because it should be a life style not a quick fix.

So Today I wanted to share my go to green smoothie recipe and let you all in on a challenge I’ll be starting on Monday.

This smoothie is super good and super easy. I also like to drink it when my iron is low. I have very low iron so it does help when I’m feeling it more. I also love to make it when I’m in a rush and I need to have something that will be nutritious and keep me fueled. Also a great after workout smoothie!

1 cup of Almond milk or milk of your choice

1 cup of fresh spinach

1/2 cup of crushed ice

1/2 banana

1/4 cup of pecans or nuts of choice

Blend all of this together, the crushed ice will give it that fun shake like consistency, So good! Put it in a glass or to go cup if you are on the go and enjoy this delicious healthy smoothie! Thanks to my sister for sharing this recipe. And now I get to share it with you all. Enjoy!
