A LIGHTER BROCCOLI SALAD

A LIGHTER BROCCOLI SALAD

Life has been exciting and busy lately but I knew it was time to give you an update and share a new recipe. My most recent recipe, The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies I've Ever Made, has been one of my most popular recipes. Possibly because cookies are just amazing in general or maybe I finally learned how to take a decent photograph, but whatever the reason may be, thank you so much for all of the resharing, baking and photo posting. I've been tagged in so many photos on instagram and they all look incredible.

ROASTED VEGETABLE SALAD WITH CHICKEN

ROASTED VEGETABLE SALAD WITH CHICKEN

The idea for this salad came to me after having lunch with a friend at California Pizza Kitchen last week. I absolutely love their grilled veggie salad and for some reason I'd never thought about how simple it would be to make on my own. Especially since I could easily make a large batch at once to feed a group or to last me most of the week. So I ran to the grocery store and whipped one together. This will definitely be a staple at my house from now on. Another reason that I love this salad? It's insanely healthy. And when insanely healthy meets crazy delicious, I'm pretty much sold. I've set my sights on competing at the CrossFit Games one day and that means my training and diet need to be in check. My competitors eat, sleep and breath this sport, and if I plan on keeping up with them, I have to too. Sometimes my dreams scare me, but whats that saying? "If you're dreams don't scare you they aren't big enough." I think I read that somewhere. And I couldn't agree more. I've made a lot of sacrifices in my career and life for this, so I'll be damned if I don't give it my all. Plus, this is what makes me happy, and isn't that one of the most important things in life? Nothing's worth it if you aren't happy. What makes you happy? Well, besides this salad, because I've already assumed that. Enjoy!
