Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and you ate lots and lots of delicious foods, spent time with those you love and you got outside and enjoyed the spring weather.  It was a glorious weekend weather wise here in Cincinnati.  The daffodils and hyacinth are blooming, the grass is turning green and buds are opening on the trees.

I did a lot of cooking and eating {a lot of eating} and spent some well appreciated time outside.  It is amazing what sitting outside breathing fresh air and soaking in some rays can do for your well-being.

I sat down and wrote out the weeks menu, definitely putting a heavy emphases on plants for this week.  I need to up the greens in my diet.  I have been off on my regular healthy eating, and I definitely can feel it.  One thing is for sure we will be having a big salad at every dinner.  This Blueberry Bacon Spinach Salad is chock full of healthy ingredients, both for our bodies and our minds.  Tons of antioxidants to help repair cells and let us think clearer as well as good dose of fiber to help us clean up our systems and reboot after an indulgent weekend eating over the holiday.  This recipe is also gluten free, dairy free and paleo.

The Blueberry Vinaigrette in this recipe is very creamy, if you like your dressing a little smoother, add a bit more olive oil to cut it to get it to the consistency that you like.  Store your extra vinaigrette in the fridge and put a dollop on your yogurt or dip extra fruit in for a little pop of flavor.
