3 Step Rainbow Detox Salad

IMG_5479 2

Okay, so during the process of my moving I was eating WAY TOO MUCH vegan junk food, and kind of fell off the health wagon. I felt very very lethargic, foggy brained, and had no energy. I think the hardest part about living a healthy lifestyle is getting back on track or just starting out. Since it takes 21 days to make a habit,  I decided I would create some easy salad recipes to last me for the next 3 weeks! This is one of my favorite recipes so far. Not only is it super easy to make ( only 3 steps ), It is delicious and PACKED with vitamins and minerals, making it extremely detoxifying for your body. This is the perfect jump start salad to getting more veggies in and cleaning up your diet. Of course, because it is so colorful and pretty, it makes it way more fun to eat 🙂
