This Greek Salad makes for an incredible main dish and can also be served as a side salad if you omit the chicken. It’s autoimmune protocol compliant, meaning it has no dairy or nightshades like a more traditional Greek Salad would, and it’s just drowning in flavor. You won’t miss the feta or tomatoes at all, I promise! This is one of my favorite salads to throw together for a quick lunch, with or without the meat.
Make your own non-toxic cosmetics!
I may make my living as a food blogger, but journey toward a more health-conscious lifestyle actually began with making my own cosmetics while I was still in high school–many years before I started “clean eating”. Desperate to get a handle on my sensitive skin and nose, I was also hoping for cheaper, more eco-friendly alternatives to store-bought products. If you’re in the same boat, making your own cosmetics and toiletries is easier than you might think! My e-book A Clean Face will give you the tools you need to get started for just $9.99.
