I love Salad, Do you?

We honeybee family eat SALAD EVERYDAY. I love the raw fresh crunch of a powerhouse, plant strong salad. But I don’t have time to chop lots and lots of ingredients so I make it easy. This salad base is an organic baby kale mix and chopped cabbage salad mix. I added sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chickpeas & grape tomatoes. Make it easy! Bee plant strong!

How do you make your salads? I usually always add some kind of dark greens and chopped veggies with a grain and a bean mixed in. Building your salad in a mason jar is an easy way to have it prepped to save time. Start with your meat or bean and dressing on the bottom, then chopped veggies, and greens/lettuce/salad mix last. You can even store your greens and lettuce in a mason jar and it will last twice as long in the fridge.

Healthy Honeybee

Buzz Buzz Buzz. I’ve always felt like a little bee buzzing around searching, learning, and striving to have a healthier home, healthier kids, healthier meals, healthier habits, and a gracious thankful attitude about everything. My name is Andrea and I am truly a “Healthy Honeybee”. I am a happy busy mom of three and I adore my family. I love to cook, clean, and always try to find more time to sit on the floor and “play” with the kids which really means jump on mommy time. Hubby’s job keeps us moving and starting over every 2-3 years which keeps my inner travel bug alive and my active planner mind always churning. On my webpage and blog, I hope you will buzz along with me learning and striving for having a healthier home and a healthier life. I will share tips, stories, and lots of research about my favorite food recipes, homemade personal care and cleaning products, exercise, essential oils, and more. I hope that you learn, laugh, and find easy solutions to make your life healthier.
