My running friend Beth shared this with me and I was super excited when I read the recipe. It was exactly what I needed to get on track for the new year. Even though I continued to run, I put on five pounds in the last two months eating and drinking whatever I wanted to! I have to admit, my exercise routine fell by the wayside a little in the last month. With getting a cold, then Jason's grandma passed away, then Christmas and New Years... I definitely skipped a few workouts. I am back on the wagon now! Doing spin twice a week, yoga once a week and trying to get out to run 3-4 times a week. Getting my eating back under control seems like such a chore, but with recipes like this, I can set myself up for success :)
This salad is fresh and filling!! I made the recipe exactly as is except for the kelp, I don't think I am ready to cross that bridge yet! Since this recipe makes a metric ton of food, I shared this salad with my boss, Kelly. She enjoyed it for lunch so I shared half of my container with her. There is no way I could eat this whole recipe in a week! My recommendation would be start out slow! If your stomach is not used to this amount of vegetables it might get a little upset. I am eating 1 cup servings at this time... I imagine that I will be able to increase that in the future. It seems weird to put maple syrup on top of these veggies but I tell you, that's what really makes it delicious! The nuts and fruit help too, I just love this combination, no matter how weird it seems. This is definitely one of those recipes I will make over and over again.
