Winter Detox Superfoods Salad

It is the beginning of a new year and while my goals for the year do not include a new fitness regimen, that is simply because I consider staying fit a life-long goal. It never changes. I do not diet. I do not try ever new fitness craze. I exercise regularly and try to cook real foods for my family. 

All that said, there are times when my waistbands feel a little tighter than usual and I realize I need to make a few modifications. It is currently such a time. My holiday splurges are clearly apparent on my waist, my skin and my overall demeanor. I abhor scales and certainly haven't stepped on one, but I simply feel like I need a healthy kick-start for the year. 

It's time to add a few uber-healthy meals to my repertoire. 

This superfoods salad is on the menu for the weekend.
