Fresh Picked Yellow Tomato Salad…


Wanting to start your year off on the right foot (that’s the healthy one)?! 

It seems as though particularly in the beginning of each new year, we are all rattled by the ideals of being healthy… I’m not sure if it is directly correlated to the fact, that we indulged on pounds of unhealthy sweet bites during the holidays, or if we are just excited about the idea of a fresh start.

Let’s face it, we are all optimists the first week of January right? At The Y Life, we are no different, doing our part to help you on your new year health quest, by supplying you with endless positive energy and that obviously comes with some deliciously inspirational recipes!
