Winter Citrus and Squash Salad

Welcome to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama + Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl to create awesome healthy recipes each week! This week’s theme is Pinterest Curiosities!

This isn’t actually a pinterest curiosity, but it’ll suffice! ;P I’m sorry I missed Foodie Friday last week with everyone! I’ve kinda been on vacation (it’s ending this weekend; noooo!), so blogging went out the window and I didn’t get around to scheduling a post into the future for last Friday.


It’s actually my birthday today and I’m currently in Scotland exploring the Isle of Skye, so expect some Travel Tuesday posts in the future about my trip to the UK! ;P In the meantime, you can follow my real-ish-time adventures via instagram and facebook!

I was out on a food adventure with my best friend and we went to Berkeley Bowl, which is an awesome place located in…well, Berkeley (Bay Area in California!). If you love grocery stores, you will adore this place–there are so many delicious options to explore!


I got 1 bag of delicata squash, 1 bag of young carrots, 1 bag of blood oranges, 2 boxes of spring mix, and a bag of bananas for ~$9. *-*

If you want to add some protein to this recipe, you could throw in some baked chicken like we did, or maybe some sliced hardboiled eggs? :]
