I guess the new year always calls for healthy eating right? After all the traveling I was doing in December I was welcoming some simple meals at home. Admittedly it's tough – its easier when you have friends to keep you accountable. I'm in a 30 day challenge with a friend to eat 80% clean with a little bit of cheats – somehow the ability to indulge sometimes makes it harder than to never indulge at all. One of the meals I've been eating a lot is this shaved brussel sprout salad with warm pancetta dressing. I think I first came across this recipe in a magazine but for the life of me I can't find it. So I've been making up things as I go from what I remember.
