Healthy Greek Salad

Feeling Fit and Fabulous for Europe!  Join the journey with us for a new fit and healthy you!  Planning and getting ready for a European vacation also means having a fit and healthy body.  Having energy and feeling good on vacation is very important, especially in Europe with all those stairs and lugging suitcases around. 

So, are you ready for that challenge? 

Taking care of YOU includes:

Plenty of sleep

Lots of water

Exercise each day

AND eating healthy!!

Eating clean meals, food that is fresh and delicious can be part of that journey. Protein shakes with fruit can also be a great meal substitute for breakfast or lunch, which is perfect ‘on the go’ food.  Evening meals don’t need to stress you out, just follow some clean meal recipes, like this one and you’ll be on your way to FEELING FIT AND FABULOUS!

We love salads at our house and there's such a variety to choose from but it's important to keep it clean, and that includes the dressing.  This is one of my all time favourite salads, it's packed with flavour and the dressing is to die for. Can it really be that healthy? Oh yeah...
