Our Very Own Salad Bar

  Who would have thought that a trip to an all inclusive resort in Punta Cana would have left me revived for healthy eating?  Not this girl. Inspired by our recent family vacation, where we enjoyed lazy days on the beach and in the pool, as well as some kick-ass healthy salads, I decided to … Continue reading Our Very Own Salad Bar

Beet, Orange and Radicchio Salad

This salad is from the amazing Plenty by one of my culinary heroes, Yotam Ottolenghi.  I received this book as a birthday gift a couple of years ago, and I have made many of the recipes.  They are no fail vegetable dishes, as much a feast for the eyes as the tummy.  This man really has a … Continue reading Beet, Orange and Radicchio Salad

People often tell me that I am "really good" … Continue reading My Favorite Kale & Quinoa Salad

Farmer’s Market Salad

Nothing beats a trip to the Farmer's Market.  I love summer salads, and making one full of that local goodness feels amazing in the soul and in the tummy.  It is August as I write this post, and I look forward to our trips to the market on Saturday mornings.  The tables are overflowing with amazing goodness, gorgeous … Continue reading Farmer’s Market Salad
