Ughhhhh. I’ve gained so much weight from breastfeeding and now that I’m done with all that pumping and using up extra calories, I’ve blown up like a pufferfish. I looked at pictures from Jackson’s 1 year birthday party a couple weeks ago and decided that I’ve got to make some changes.
This delicious Superfood Salad is not only tasty but it’s loaded with nutrient dense foods that help our bodies run a just a little bit better. I frequent a grocer called Dale’s Natural Foods and they feature this Superfood Salad daily. I have fallen so completely in love with it that I developed this recipe so that I can enjoy it more often at home.
