Why You Need to Add Kale to Your Diet…

I started adding kale into my diet about 6 mos. ago.  I'm always looking for new veggies that I can stomach.  Especially leafy greens.  The benefits in leafy green vegetables are huge.  I was just going to make this a smoothie recipe post, but I decided to divide it up into 2 posts because kale honestly deserves a post of it's own.  Get ready to get excited about KALE!

Summer Tapenade…Great for Your Taste Buds and Your Skin!

Summer time makes me want to make light, exotic food, served outside with a crisp white wine.  I love a good tapenade.  I crave it kind of like pregnant women crave pickles.  I love the tart salty flavor paired with a yummy pita bread or chip and a dry white wine.   Did I mention, tapenade can be mixed up in minutes-such a fast and easy way to serve guests or make yourself a clean, yummy snack! A while ago I did a post on the health benefits of olive oil on the skin.  That article discussed … [Read more...]
