Greek Yogurt
This is a favorite go-to-snack for me — greek yogurt with raw local honey, fresh berry and chocolate shards. It’s a great snack or dessert. Greek yogurt is thicker and richer than regular yogurt plus it has between 12 and 23 grams of protein depending on the brand you buy, […]

Yogurt and Berry


Green Food
It’s kinda like Taboule without the bulgar wheat. I purchased a couple large bunches of fresh parsley on sale, washed and chopped it up with some fresh diced tomato, onion, and cucumber. Mix well and add a few drops of olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon to taste. Salt and […]

You’re a Peach


salad
It’s been so hot and humid the last few weeks, this has been a great go-to meal. Last night’s dinner: Egg, wilted kale, cherry tomato with basil, and cucumber – with lemon and olive oil. Mmmmmmm. I find all of these items at the local farmer’s market and vary what’s […]

Kiwi-Fruit 4
I remove the skin, slice up and store in a glass container. Usually mine are consumed within a day or two because I prefer fresher fruit. You can use Kiwis on salads or in smoothies – though, I like to eat mine as a snack right from the container. The […]

mashed turnip
The Hukurei turnip Commonly known as the salad turnip, this Japanese turnip is very versatile. I cooked mine as a side dish for Thanksgiving but it is REALLY good in a salad or as a snack or to use on your crudités platter. It is sort of like eating a […]

I know steaming is better and I do steam them, but these my friends are my most amazing ever roasted Brussels sprouts. Besides being loaded with nutritional value, this dish is vegetable candy! How I made them? Very easy – I bought them on the stalk at the farmer’s markets. […]
