Aren’t these weeks after Memorial Day so funny? It may feel like summer outside, but the calendar doesn’t lie – it’s still definitely Spring, for a little over one more week!

Needless to say, I’m in major detox mode this week! Not detox as in not-eating-food-and-drinking-only-juice (who do you think I am??) but more like detox as in filling-my-belly-with-things-that-are-happy-and-healthy. Just like these incredible kale pesto quinoa bowls!
