shanna's eats: jazzed up spinach salad

I have received a lot of requests from friends, family and some of my awesome followers who are expecting asking what I like to fill my belly with when I am pregnant. I have to start off by saying this pregnancy did not allow me to eat a whole lot during the first three months, but now that I am slowly getting my appetite back which makes me one happy girl who loves me some good ol' food. One goal our family and I always try our best to stick to is trying to eat healthy and clean but that's not to say we don't enjoy our occasional take-out.

So, without further ado, here is one of my favourite go-to dishes these days - jazzed up spinach salad. This salad is perfect for lunch and if I am planning on serving it for dinner I add a grilled chicken breast and voila!  I have made several of these babies and these toppings seem to fit together just right.

Shanna's Jazzed Up Spinach Salad- Serves 2 portions
