With 2020 here, most of ya’ll wanna get on that health kick.  Me too! 

One way to get on it is to put more greens into your diet.  I’m not talking Collard Greens with Salt and Hocks – HA! But freshness in the form of Salads.  I ran across some salads that might catch ya’lls interest this Winter. I found these salads at Huffpost to help you get prepared for Summer 2020. Most people feel like they don’t have to eat healthy in the cold weather because it’s simply cold.  No one is going out, checking out their bodies or anything.
