I have a thing for detox salads.

They just taste so darn good.

So fresh. So flavorful. So healthy. What’s not to love?

{Side Bar}: Detox Salad, I Heart You. Hehe.

I’ve got a serious addiction for cashews and almonds mixed in this big ol’ bowl of cabbage, cherry tomatoes, quinoa, red cabbage, broccoli, sweet potatoes and more. Huge addiction. My favorite part? The soft texture of quinoa mixed with the crunchy nuts n’ cabbage. It’s a mouth full of fun!

It’s a good problem to have. Trust me.

I’m not complaining.

But I am full.

Too full to type this. So, you’ll have to figure out what this tastes like for yourself. I’m off to take a little holiday nap.

Enjoy!

And have a safe and happy New Year’s!

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo

  1. Hi Amie!
    You said to comment anywhere on the blog, so I thought your latest post was most appropriate for the CV Labs giveaway. I would absolutely love to win. I actually won a bottle of their Rescue and Relief spray from the blog, Mommy Greenest, and I’ve been hooked ever since. It is the most soothing product I own. I use it after shaving, and in the summer on heat rash. Right now it’s great for patches of dermatitis. Keep it in the fridge for instant cooling relief! I’m starting to run low though, and unfortunately, I can ‘t really afford to try all her products on my budget. Would love to, so hope I win! I would leave tons of rave reviews : )

  2. Hi Anne,
    I’m commenting on your blog to get a chance at winning 🙂
    Thanks so much for taking the time to share your recipes with me. I’ve started eating clean and I haven’t looked back yet!
    New recipes are always welcomed and when I try them, they are always great!

  3. Love cashews in my salad too. Have everything for this except the red cabbage which I will pick up tomorrow. Never thought of putting sweet potatoes in my salad. Should be delish!

  4. The Detox Salad was easy to make and delish. I posted my plated post-New Year dish on Instagram and Facebook and let me tell you, everyone wanted the recipe, which I shared. Thank you!

    Happy Healthy 2015!
