This Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad is the perfect salad to kick off the New Year with!
Merry Christmas friends! I hope you all had the best holiday with the people you love. Ours was low key and lazy and just how it needed to be! I ate way too many treats and am ready to to clean up my diet. This Winter Detox Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad will be on repeat (or at least a once a week thing) to help me get lots of greens, antioxidants, healthy fats, and fiber!
It’s chalk full of good stuff- shaved brussels sprouts, kale, cauliflower, apple, avocado, pomegranate pearls, green onions, and a little feta. And tossed together with a simple Lemon-Maple Tumeric dressing.
This Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad is fresh, crispy and crunchy, sweet with a little bit of savory.
I just looove it! I wasn’t sure I would like raw, shaved brussels but ever since I made Lisa Allen’s Brussels Sprout Salad I’ve been obsessed with them. I’ll just have both salads on repeat through the New Year!
Since I’m prego, I’m not doing anything drastic for the new year as far as detoxing my diet, just really trying to fuel my body with whole foods, less junk and less processed sugar, and drinking lots and lots of water. Salads like this for lunch with and dinner with a lean protein is ideal!
