These Salads in a Jar turned out so pretty! To make them special, I made my own honey mustard vinaigrette using raw honey, extra virgin olive oil, Pinot Grigio white wine vinegar, a splash of Pinot Grigio wine, fresh thyme, sea salt, and fresh cracked pepper. I made salads using two different salad greens, one … Continue reading Salads in a Jar
Good afternoon on this beautiful Sunday! I’m feeling extra motivated today to kick out a week’s worth of clean yummy meals.

I saved the best for last, Fruit Mint Tea. Just fresh brewed Luzianne tea bags, along with Plantation Mint tea. To this, I added pineapple juice, Blanca mango mix, and sweetened the tea with agave. I haven’t even fixed my plate to eat, but I’m sipping on this. I am shamefully a tea addict, born … Continue reading Fruit Mint Tea
