So, it’s that time of year….y’all know what I mean. The holidays have been over for almost 3 months, but those skinny jeans are still hanging in your closet, feeling decidedly UN-skinny. You’ve been slacking on your workout and damn, it’s almost tank top weather. Time for a
detox Healthy Spring Reset.
No need to do the Master Cleanse for 17 days– yup, did that. (Never again!!) It’s just a matter of swapping out some fries for a scrumptious salad– and passing on the chocolate cake and going with grilled what? Grilled grapefruit, lovelies. It’s a thing. And it’s GETINMYMOUTHRAWTNOW kinda good. Like, I am kind of obsessed with it right now. This is my first time trying Wonderful Sweet Scarletts Grapefruit and I’m hooked– so sweet, so juicy! These are a new brand of Texas Red Grapefruits, launched nationwide in November. I remember being a little girl and my Mom would sprinkle sugar on grapefruits to get me to eat it—- you don’t even need sugar, they are so sweet! The Texas climate has warm days and cool nights, so they are getting some of the sweetest, premium grapefruits around.
And the lavender honey sounds fancy, but it’s super easy. Just grab a lavender plant from the grocery store or a local florist, pop a few buds of lavender in some honey and let it soak for an hour or so. Didn’t know you could be so fancy, did ya??
OK, onto the salad next…
This is one salad I can actually stand. I hate salads, people. For real. I know, I know, I’m like the 1% of chicks who chooses NOT to eat salad. So when I do, it’s got to be really freaking good. This one is really. Freaking. Good. It’s one of those, ‘slurp it off the plate with your tongue’ yum. The Wonderful Halos add the perfect, citrus element to this sweet and savory salad. And they’re only in season until April, so you still have a few weeks left to enjoy these sweet, seedless mandarins.
Another Go-To in my pantry now is Great Grains Granola in both Super Nutty and Blueberry Flax. Pop it on some Greek yogurt with some fresh fruit and call it breakfast. Or a snack. I keep some in a ziplock in my purse for those times when hunger starts gnawing and you really want to pull over and hit a drive thru! They’ve got 26 grams of whole grains per serving and are made with real fruit, nuts and oats. Try this granola– you’ll find in most grocery stores.
And try these recipes– I guarantee those Skinny jeans will be feeling skinny again very soon!
