Carefully counting calories doesn’t have to be boring. This amazing Bok Choy and Pineapple salad is sweet, spicy, savory, and full of nutrients! Following it up with a game changer of a chocolate shake isn’t the sin you would think it to be, either. The shake tastes exactly like a traditional chocolate milkshake, except the ingredients are truly healthy! It’s one of my all-time favorites!
