New year, new food

Happy 2015 Glamourites!!

I can’t believe how fast the last year flew by, it really shows you that you must treasure each moment because one day you will look back on it and miss it. One of my new years resolutions is to have a more balanced lifestyle, I am not saying I want to eat healthy or only eat greens because hey, we all know that that is impossible. My plan is to keep everything in perspective while trying my best and rewarding myself from time to time with maybe a burger or pizza. We all have those cravings and if we don’t indulge in them now and then it can have a worse backlash effect. Having said all that here is an amazing salad recipe I am definitely going to be trying this week along with a “healthy” tasty dessert!
