Smoked salmon and Spinach salad


Salads are a hit at my house, and this smoked salmon and spinach salad makes the top of the list. It incorporates spinach , a great alkalizing green with some amazing smoked salmon, and whole grain pasta. This is a perfect recipe as a side salad, or as an entrée. Its all up to you of how you want to serve it. I have to say its delicious, and quick. You can add some kale or dulce to the spinach too. It s your preference.

  • 2 oz. smoked salmon
  • 1 cup fresh organic spinach
  • (optional) 1/2 cup organic kale or dulce
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 tomato ( organic) sliced
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil and vinegar
  • @ tbsp. flaxseed optional


Place the greens in a large bowl. If you are adding the Kale or Dulce, make sure to blend the greens well. You do not want one type of green just sitting on the bottom. Place the cooked whole grain pasta on top. Make sure you have rinsed the pasta with cold water, and drained thoroughly.  Place the Walnuts on top , as well as the tomatoes. Slice the smoked salmon in to small pieces , and place on top. Add the flax seed and dressing on top. If you are making this , just for one person, stick  with the serving sizes. If you are making a bigger salad, for your family , or a cookout, make sure to double the ingredients. I would advise if you are making a bigger salad, to double the dressing ingredients, and let everyone add their own dressing to their salads. Many people like more dressing than others do.

This salad is full of antioxidants, as well as very alkalizing. If you would like to use a certain green to spinach, pick the one that you like best and use that.  They all taste amazing.

4 Fall staples you need for the Fall

Fall is right around the corner, and there is no better time to get your closet ready than now. Fall is my favorite time of year. Besides loving to drink my favorite Starbucks coffee drinks, night time fires, football, and the gorgeous leaves, I love fall fashion. It’s my all time favorite. 

Every year I start looking at some of the biggest trends in fashion. I have four great fashion staples that you need to add to your fall wardrobe. They are casual, yet fun basics. They can be worn everyday for that fun, Fall look. 

  • A cargo jacket- A cargo jacket is a necessity this fall. They come in some great colors, but my all time favorite is army green. Pairing that with a simple white tshirt is a great look. I just recently bought the one from Nordstrom
  • Ripped denim jeans- these are amazing with any type of top. They have that rugged look that is a total top trend this fall. Pairing these with a pair of amazing booties is ideal. 
  • Booties- Of course you need a great pair of booties to pair with those jeans. Vince Camuto Sells amazing booties. 
  • Geometric scarves- These type of scarves can be worn during the day for a casual look, and can also be worn at night with a skirt and tall boots for a more conservative look. The geometric scarves are a great staple to add to any Fall wardrobe. 

I’m sure that adding a great Starbucks Fall drink would add greatly to any Fall outfit. Get that closet ready.
