amy's clean eats pick of the week | apple, goat cheese, walnut salad

so i set some goals a few posts back to make myself a priority & help get "myself" back.  and unlike a lot of my goal setting (what? goals are hard!) it's actually been going pretty good.  i registered to run a 10k & have been running 3x a week per a training plan.  i have cut a lot of the crap from my diet & am subscribed to a meal planning service called & am using their "clean eating" plan.  it's going awesome.

ok, long story short, i wanna start sharing a meal a week or so from our menu here on the blog.  a clean recipe that is good & worth making.  eating healthy & fresh foods is totally doable!  so... here's week one.

apple, goat cheese, walnut salad w/ honey, orange, maple dressing

haha, enjoy the descriptive name?  i had to include everything!  here we go:

-mixed baby greens
-1 small granny smith apple, peeled & diced
-1 oz. goat cheese
-1/4 c. chopped walnuts

-1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
-2 tsp. freshly squeezed orange juice
-1 tsp. Dijon mustard
-1 tsp. maple syrup
-1/4c olive oil

it's pretty self self-explanatory beyond that.  mix it all up accordingly & eat!  i didn't know i was such a big fan of goat cheese.  on its own, it's not the best.  but combined with the sweetness of the apple & the dressing?  so delish.

enjoy!  now go eat something healthy.


  1. Hey looks like a BB lunch to me :) YUMMY! Love my BB books!!! Great ideas for healthy eating! Go AMY!

  2. Yum -- I have apple/walnut chicken salads all the time, but have never added goat cheese before. And that dressing sounds great!
