We’ve had more than our share of fun these past few months. Fun that included more than our share of food.
For more than a few good reasons, you’ll find kale salads make frequent appearances on our dinner table.
Spend just one minute searching for kale on the internet and you’ll produce hundreds of websites touting the health benefits of this leafy green vegetable.
That’s because it’s packed with antioxidants like vitamins A, C and K , which studies believe contribute to the prevention of various cancers.
Kale is also loaded with fiber, so if you want to lower your cholesterol and reduce your risk of heart disease, kale is the way to go.
Tired of zucchini recipes yet? No worries, this zucchini salad will bring back your love of this abundant summer squash.
Like many of you, my vegetable garden is overflowing with zucchini. I can’t give away this healthy squash because every gardener in the country is trying to give away their excess, and then some!
I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s impossible to make a pasta salad that doesn’t turn out to be enough for a crowd.
In this case it was a good thing, since it was my daughter’s 29th birthday this weekend and I needed enough for a crowd. Wait – did I say 29? Where does the time go?
In the spirit of providing my family with the nutrients we need to be healthy and happy, once in a blue moon I’ll chop up a fruit salad.
I’m one of those crazy people who isn’t fond of fruits. I’ll pop a carrot in my mouth before you’ll see me crunch on a grape.
That being said, if you serve me a dazzling fruit salad, I might eat a scoopful. After all, it’s a well known fact that eating 7 – 8 servings of fruits and vegetables is good for your body, and I don’t want to miss out.
If, like many of us, you may have gained a pound or two over the holidays, then you came to the right place. For the month of January I’ll be posting ultra skinny recipes to get us on track, and those numbers on the scale in check.
This asparagus salad with a sweet balsamic dressing is the perfect way to get back to your healthy eating lifestyle.
I’m sorry to see summer come to an end. Here in Seattle, we’ve had an amazing run of glorious sun. If you’re a Seattleite, you know summers like this are few and far between.
Do people avoid cooking because recipes have too many ingredients and complicated instructions?
As my lovely sister-in-law and I were drooling over salad recipes this weekend, Vanessa made just that comment.
She said that many recipes required an amazing list of ingredients, most of which she would have to buy, and probably never use again.
What’s more, the instructions were endless. As a working mother of two young boys, she had no time, or energy, to tackle a cooking project.
I love date day with the girls.
Especially when the date includes Debbie, Sandi and good food like this kale salad with apples, cucumbers and ham.
The inspiration for this crunchy salad came from a local Asian food truck. I was so intrigued by the combination of ingredients that I had to attempt to recreate it myself, and who better to try it out on then Debbie and Sandi.
