Healthy Asian Broccoli Slaw


One of my favorite side dishes is an oriental broccoli slaw salad that my mom used to make. Lucky for me I've taken this favorite recipe and made it guilt free:)  People often forget about broccoli slaw as a substitute for coleslaw or lettuce in a traditional salad. Try this recipe out and let me know what you think!

Ingredients:
1 package Broccoli slaw
1/3 yellow onion, diced
3/4 cup steamed shelled edamame
1 cup slivered almonds
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup canola oil
4 packets truvia
1/4 cup dried cranberries

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350, spread slivered almonds across a baking sheet and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Cook until brown.  While almonds are cooking, mix vinegar, oil and truvia packets in a small bowl.  In a large bowl, combine all of the other ingredients (including almonds when they are done browning).  Toss dressing in and stir until combined.

Summer Wedges! All under $90


Without a doubt wedges are my favorite type of shoe.  They're comfortable and come in all different styles.  I love that you can find a wedge shoe or sandal for almost any occasion. Here are a few pairs I found that are under $90.

Starting off with the Bare Traps Shoes, Ivania Wedge Sandal from Macy's.  This is a great shoe for women who don't want a lot of added height or aren't comfortable walking in tall shoes.  The wedge is a low height making it wearable for any age or style.  I love a brown leather wedge because it goes well with summer dresses and skirts and also white pants. You can get this sandal here for only $69: Bare Traps Shoes, Ivania Wedge Sandal Just ordered mine:)

The ASOS Harmonica Wedge is a new favorite of mine because it's classic and dressy.  If you have a summer lineup anything like mine, attending weddings is a weekly event.  These shoes are perfect to match with a nicer dress for an event or dressy occasion but can also be dressed down and worn with a great boyfriend jean. Let's be honest, weddings can get long,.. avoid taking your heels off on the dance floor and buy these wedges! You can buy them here for $71.27: ASOS Harmonica Wedge

As I've mentioned before, hardware is a trend that's sticking around. These ASOS New Look Faye Black Studded Wedges are an adorable way to rock to the trend.  Best part about these? They're only $42.41!  These shoes look tall but the platform style adds comfort for your feet.  Love these shoes? Buy them here: ASOS New Look Faye Black Studded Wedges

I've got to admit, Chinese Laundry is stepping up their game. I really like these Chinese Laundry Jam Session Platform Wedge.  The funky shape and cutouts make this shoe special.  It's is a crossover between a standout and a basic. The color is a nice nude that will go with almost everything in your wardrobe, but the shape is unlike shoes I've seen before. This shoe is also platform style, making it far more comfortable than it looks. If I were you, I'd add this shoe to my wardrobe.  Buy these for $89 here: Chinese Laundry Jam Session Platform Wedge
