Two Sundays back I woke up and thought, I need to make a bit of a change. Since the Super Bowl, I’d been eating snacking on leftover chips, dip and eating way too much pizza for dinner. Mostly, I didn’t want it to go to waste, and also it was easy. But I woke up that Sunday and was lie, I just feel like crap. Tired, groggy, bloated, and just bleeeh. For someone who typically eats healthy, I’d thrown myself off pretty seriously.

Monday morning I made a grocery run and stocked up on a ton of fruits and veggies. I also found a new product, 10-minute barley, yum! I scooped that up and went home to make this barley salad.

Not only is it healthy, it’s filling and super tasty. I ended up eating this everyday last week for lunch. This past weekend, I woke up feeling so thankful that I made that veggie run. More energy, sleeping better, feeling lighter, and just generally better!
