Detox Monday

It’s Detox Monday…but this week its arriving on Tuesday!

With the holiday yesterday, my schedule didn’t allow for getting back on track until today. Besides, it’s tough to think about detoxing when Memorial Day is the unofficial start to barbequing season.

Did you enjoy your long weekend?

My weekend wrapped up what felt like a month of birthday celebrations! My parents hosted a big family dinner on my behalf at Hugo’s Frog Bar Saturday night; in addition, I spent time with my adorable nephew, enjoyed a short boat ride on the Chicago River, took a long walk along the lake with my mom, and unexpectedly caught up with a friend who was in town.

Now, with no long weekends in sight, its back to the grind.

I’m kicking off the work week with a healthy Creamy Cesar Salad Dressing recipe adapted from my new Big Book of Salads cookbook c/o Cooking Light. This recipe has all the amazing flavors without the guilt of a full fat Cesar. With fat-free plain yogurt as the base, you can indulge with only 26 calories per serving. I drizzled the zesty dressing on romaine hearts, making the perfect side salad.
