How is everyone’s week going? We’re almost to Friday and summer is officially here! These Mason Jar Salads are where it’s at when you’re trying to eat clean this summer.
Last weekend, I attended the Toledo Zoo’s Zoo to Do event and a graduation party, so I totally indulged in great foods and sweet treats. I woke up Monday really feeling the effects of my horrible weekend eating patterns, and as every Monday, that was the motivation I needed to push myself to eat clean to FEEL GOOD. I stress the “feel good” part because in our health and fitness journeys, it is so important that we work out and eat good to not only look good, but to ultimately FEEL GOOD. When I am eating clean, I feel amazing, and my mental health feels amazing. When I eat well and feel well, I feel that the world is at my fingertips and I can achieve anything I put my mind too. When I stray from my clean eating goals, I get super down on myself and I am working not to do that. Every day is a fresh start!
Anyways, I saw these salads from a Buzzfeed Tasty video on Facebook – gosh those videos get me every time! I am sharing these with you because they truly are one of the most amazing salads I have ever had. I am not a salad person, but these salads make me want to be a salad person. You can find the recipe here.
