Our participants are headed into week 3 of our Fresh Start Healthy Heart which means they're beginning to see CCN as a lifestyle. We re-introduce gluten and diary (if tolerated) and show them how our way of eating isn't a diet but a sustainable way of life. Using food to fuel our bodies properly and enjoying it along the way!
This salad is a great quick lunch option and can be prepped ahead of time quickly and easily. It definitely has us dreaming of warmer Spring days ahead!
