Green Detox Broccoli Salad

By 11

It’s been a while since I last wrote on my blog, and I really missed it. A lot happened meanwhile – I’ve been involved into a huge project which helped me grow my food videography skills, serious health issues stroke in our little family, we’re still fighting the disease but trustfully looking for better days, and then spring happened.
