Salad in a Jar – SRC

There are a ton of us in this, not so secret club, now. It’s rad! I look forward to ‘reveal day’ every month to see all the fantastic recipes that have been made. And quite honestly, I also look forward to seeing who got my blog. Of aaaaall the recipes they could have picked, why THAT one? So then, why do I chose the recipes I do?

But the cleanse, of course, is already dictated for me. I’m missing that little creative spark that drives me to the kitchen every day.
