Here we are again Sweatster, it's FRIDAY. This week I had a fun little outing with some friends. We went out for a healthy dinner, and then took on COSTCO! It was awesome. I got to spend time with my friends, get some good healthy groceries AND see what my healthy fun loving friends like to get at costco. It was a great Tuesday evening.

  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos
  • salt, to taste
  • 3-4 cups spinach
  • 2 cups broccoli, cut into florets
For the OMG sauce

  9. Whisk all ingredients for the sauce together.
