Berry and Broccoli Salad 1

Berry & Broccoli Salad

Serves: 1-2

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! We have been enjoying such amazing weather lately — rain, clouds, humidity! It is amazing (sarcasm)! haha I am hoping by the 4th we will have some beautiful sunshine for the long weekend! Before I get into today’s recipe, I wanted to share with you two quotes that my yoga instructor said in class yesterday. Both of these I found to be very powerful —

The first quote was, “Move Inward, Move Forward, Move Upward, Move Outward” This was the mantra that we took with us through the class.

The second quote, which ended class was, “Holding onto resentment is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.” In the end, the only person you end up hurting is yourself. So let go of the resentment and free yourself.

WOW! I don’t know about you, but both of these truly hit home with me in one way or another.  Sorry if that was a bit heavy to start your Monday, but it is so important to look inside of ourselves and find ways to grow and letting go of things which create resentment or anger are one of those ways!

Another way is to whip up this delicious, fresh, beautiful summer dish! 🙂 It is loaded with veggies, summer berries, protein and some amazing avocado! It is the perfect, quick and healthy dish for those bbq’s this week too! I hope you enjoy! 🙂

    recipe...wow... can't wait to try it. :) the weather stinks... we are at the shore this weekend and had to run off the beach 2x from the rain... I am whiter than when I first got here haha. I love those quotes... I definitely hold onto grudges. And it is so true... it doesn't make you feel any better at all. I try to forgive and forget but it's hard at times.

  • Broccoli slaw is one of my favorite salad fixings! But I've never tried adding berries to it... Great idea! I bet it would be tasty mixed with spinach and strawberries... Mmm, now I wanna try it ;)
