The beginning of a year. It's a time of hope, a time of promise, a time when one's motivation supply is replenished enough to finally fulfill those goals that one has long procrastinated from, like regularly walking the dog to eating healthier to tightening your belt a few notches (literally and figuratively). 

Any dietician would tell you that the trick to managing your diet is to eat smarter. We asked Cibbie Gonzales' the owner and brains behind smoothie and salad chain Go! Salads to help up with a quick salad that doesn't scrimp of flavor, nutrients, and portion size.
