Apple Cranberry Walnut Kale Salad | Autumn

I can’t believe it’s already Thursday! Let’s do this holiday thing every Monday (are you with me?) I don’t want you to get confused with this post — It’s really me, I promise. Usually, my food posts involve donuts, cake & everything sweet! (Everything in moderation, of course). My BFF, Heidi,  is a vegetarian foodie — she’s teaching me a few things about clean eating (make sure to follow her on Instagram for her Chicago adventures). I’ve made a pact to myself this month to eat cleaner, and work-out. Until last week, I hadn’t worked out in 2 months! It was definitely interfering with my overall health, and energy levels day-day.

With that being said, I thought it would be fun to get into the Autumn spirit (OMG, so excited for Hocus Pocus — I’m rambling again) with this delicious apple cranberry walnut salad. My favorite part is the homemade dressing; apple cider vinegar — the perfect touch of flavor. I think I can get used to this healthy eating thing. PS: Super easy! My specialty!
