Barre3 Body Blast Faves : DIY Yourself Salad with Cilantro Vinaigrette

The Barre3 Philippines' studio launched the 7 Day Body Blast Program 2 weeks ago and as an instructor, we were encourage to participate in it to set an example to our students/clients. This 7 day program is designed to help you shed a little unwanted weight but gain more energy. It's a schedule complete with a nutritional plan and recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner plus recommended workout both in the studio or the barre3 online workouts http://www.barre3.com/videos/. This "Feel Good Fast Formula" is actually very simple and easy to follow. The meals were basically SSS (triple S) - Smoothie for breakfast, Salad for lunch and Soup for dinner. I'd like to share with you some of the recipes which I loved the most out of the whole program starting with this DIY Salad with Cilantro Vinaigrette. Cilantro or locally known here in the Philippines as "wansoy" happens to be one of my favorite herbs not only because it's very distrinct, very "Asian" flavor but also it's benefits. Pain and symptoms of inflammation can be quelled by the continued use of cilantro, which is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. 



This recipe is taken from the Barre3 website :
