Let’s take a quick poll – just leave your answer in the comments – do we want more healthy recipes on the blog this time of year?? I feel like fall recipes are so often really decadent which I am 1000% okay with, but also I love a good healthy fall meal too. Thoughts? Leave them below.

Today we’re for sure on the healthy train because I ate like a jerk over the weekend. SO many cookies, cocktails, burgers, steaks, fries… the works. And today I need a re-set. This Chopped Thai Salad is LOADED with everything you need to keep things light and bright. Tons of veggies and a really light vinaigrette that you’ll love. You could add some roasted salmon or chicken or steak if you want extra protein too. But brace yourselves, because you’ll want 4 servings of this it’s THAT good!! Have at it! xo
