may is national salad month! it’s actually quite fitting… just in time for summer and swimsuits!
i have two pieces of greatness to share with you today in honor of this celebration of salad…
1. an incredibly delicious asian salmon salad (inspired by my favorite salad at central market cafe).
2. an ipad mini giveaway brought to you by green leaf & bananas! (see additional details below)
salads can be a great choice, however, if you’re not careful you can easily load up over 1,000 calories on top of your bed of greens! (shocking, i know.) choose salad toppings that are high in protein, fiber, and healthy fat!
today… i’ll be inspiring you with a beautiful healthy salad recipe bursting with color and flavor!
don’t be scared of the salmon… just follow my directions exactly and it’ll be delicious!
when i first started my blog less than a year ago, i had absolutely zero experience in or knowledge about photography. all i had was my little iphone4s, which is what i used to take these salad pictures–right before i got a “real” (dslr) camera. as silly as it seems, once i had my new camera, i was so embarrassed by the iphone pictures that i never even posted this recipe! i find it so very interesting how much your perspective changes as you grow… not only in certain skill sets but also as you move forward in life. how many things do we hold back on because of pride… or being too concerned about what others may think?? without these pictures, i would have no concept of or appreciation for where i started.
progress is self-motivational, no matter how small. make progress your goal. :)
