Panzanella Salad


Panzanella salad Who loves healthy recipes, but sometimes doesn't know where to start...ME (and probably a lot of you guys out there too). I feel like for a little while I got stuck in a rut of just eating the same foods over and over again because A. I couldn't think of new healthy recipes & B. it was just easier to grab an apple w/ peanut butter than to prep something. I've eaten pretty healthy lately other than a few splurges on ice cream but I realized a couple of days ago as I was grabbing my 4th apple of the week...why am I eating this if I'm bored of it?

Eating should be enjoyable.

Whether you're trying to eat clean, or are splurging on a cupcake eating should be delicious. To get over this little recipe rut I turned to my long time friend...Pinterest. If you guys don't follow me on there, or don't have a Pinterest account, you totally should because it's truthfully life changing. I'm always getting inspiration for delicious and healthy quick recipes, DIY projects, outfit ideas, etc. It will make your creative side so happy. Warning don't blame me when you're up until 1am three nights in a row because you've become addicted :).

Anyway I found this delicious recipe from a food blog Left Side of the Table. Her food pictures are gorgeous and drew me in instantly. My mouth was watering the moment I saw this Panzanella salad and it definitely didn't disappoint. It takes 15 minutes total to prepare and is so fresh and light tasting. I hope you all love it.
