Breathtaking flower fruit spinach salad!

This delicious mouthful of healthy Fitspiration will absolutely take your breath away. I brought this baby to a party this weekend and all my friends LOVED it!

It’s easy, healthy and BEAUTIFUL (if I do say so myself… and I do!)

Did I mention it was cheap too? My fridge is almost always filled with fruit (since I make fruit smoothies every morning), so I used all the left-over fruits I had in there, and created this flowerful beauty!

My boyfriend brought in some lovely flowers from my front garden, so I threw those in for some extra color too.

Flower Salad Ingmake

I really love that this is such an impressive looking salad that took such little effort to throw together for a party. Keep it in mind for your next hang out!

P.s Oh my gosh you guys, aren’t my food-ography pictures getting so much better??!? I’ve been practicing with different lightning techniques with my camera and it’s been making SUCH a big difference.

Packing in the protein- healthy eating-out tip!

Needless to say, I may be a slight Avocado addict. There’s about 4 grams of protein in each Avocado, so I like to get as much in there as I can without it spilling out my nose of course haha (Omgosh EW I don’t know why I just said that, I totally just got a gross visual of myself eating this sandwich with Avocado coming out my nose… EW!)

Anyway, adding vegetables to your meals when you’re eating out is a great way to sneak in some extra protein. I’ve added in a lot if extra Avocado to my grilled cheese, had it made on wheat bread instead of white (which also has more protein) and substituted a salad for the side of fries.

Added side salad (instead of fries)

Vegetarians need to pack in the protein where ever they can, whenever they can!

Try it out- next time you go to a restaurant, add ONE vegetable to your meal. Whether it’s extra tomatoes on your salad, a side of asparagus to your main course or Avocados to your grilled cheese, just start with one.

Every vegetable you add to your diet, gets you one step closer to that fabulous healthy lifestyle you’ve been working so had for.

You can do it!
