Summertime really brings out the creativity! Everything is so bright and colorful – I just love it.

So the past few weeks I have been cutting out processed sugar (sans a cocktail here and there, because, duh) – and for the most part I feel amazing! – but I still get those sweet cravings here and there. So eating extra “sweet” vegetables and fruits (beets, carrots, raisins) helps curb the cravings for the unnatural stuff.

This salad was really inspired by the gorgeous sunny colors – and ended up tasting even better then it looked 🙂 Enjoy!
