Now, even though I’ve never personally been a smoker, I have seen it affect members of my family. I want to help others who know people who smoke to give them the tools and resources to help those around them! Quitter’s Circle is a fabulous online resource with information from tips on how water can play an important role in your quit journey, to articles on helping your best friend try to quit smoking, and I am so excited to share even more ways to be confident, feel great, and glow from within!

It’ll give you the fuel you need to tackle your day, it will give you energy with proteins and healthy fats, and it will leave you so satisfied you’ll be wanting to cook this meal up again and again! Plus, it’s easy to prepare, and you can meal prep parts of it ahead of time (like the bacon, hard boiled eggs, dressing, and steak), to throw together throughout the week for a satisfying meal!

  1. I made this last night and it was really yummy!! The dressing is the perfect flavor and not too heavy. I was a little confused because the recipe says pickled jalapenos but the picture shows no peppers and what looks like a blood orange (maybe grapefruit)? I went with the peppers and it worked perfect 🙂
