Hey, friends! Happy Monday!
How was your weekend? Did it snow where you are? We were *supposed* to get a huge snow storm, but we ended up barely getting anything after all of the hype. And, of course, I am especially thankful for that. After last winter, I am so over snow for awhile! Anyway, we had a nice weekend over here, and I am going to recap it in numbers!

The brand sent me some of their salads last week, and I am truly obsessed. They are legit salads with made with organic and interesting ingredients— meaning they’re not your usual romaine lettuce/grape tomato/red onion/cucumber salads. They’re made with seriously nutritious ingredients (many of them are superfoods), so they’re packed with omega-3s, antioxidants, and plenty of plant-based proteins. (Some of their salads include Non-GMO Project-verified chicken too!) Here’s just a sampling of some of the ingredients: Aronia Berries, Cacao Nibs, Sorghum, Chia Seeds, Red Azuki Beans, Goji Berries, Cashews, Wheatberries, and Quinoa.
Ok, since I’m on a roll here, I also want to tell you that the ElevAte salad dressings are incredible. They’re light and flavorful, and there’s just the right amount, so it adds a little something-something to your salad, but doesn’t drench it either. And, finally, there are 8 different salad recipes, so you always have a delicious option to try! One more thing: The Caesar Vinaigrette and Creamy Honey Mustard Dressing on the Spinach-Pow salad are both to die for!! OMG.
And elevAte is giving away a ton of great fitness gear + 4 grand prizes including gym memberships, gift cards, and an Apple watch, so be sure to enter for a chance to win!
