Last day of the year! Hey. Hello! You wearing stretchy pants? I am.

I feel like I need to EASE into this healthy eating lifestyle in 2015.

I like to walk the line with salads…but add nuts and cheese as a BABY STEP into healthier eating. I find that if I don’t have those two requirements I’m not successful in reminding my body that vegetables are a worthier choice over cheese and crackers.

I do love vegetables. Especially ones that have crunch. This salad has all the things. Sweetness from the orange, crunch from the Brussels sprouts, saltiness from the Pecorino, crunch with the pistachios and BITE with the sliced red onion. It’s a lot like my Addictive Brussels Sprouts Salad but ENHANCED!

 

And we’re off!

This salad will exploit your knife skills! We’re gonna do some b-sprout shredding.

And some orange segmenting.

I made my segments even smaller. The more the merrier.
