I frequently stalk the local Goodwill store and thrift shops for things to reuse and repurpose, including glasses or dishes for my food and drink creations. I found this set of glasses at Goodwill, and had to make a healthy, alcohol free, drink to highlight their beauty.

I am now loving bowls. Breakfast bowls, lunch bowls, dinner bowls, dessert bowls. All the bowls. It is a neat way to combine many healthy foods into a delicious and nutritious (which are both essential…must be delicious and good for you) meal. For breakfast, I whipped up this chocolate chia pudding bowl, which starts with the amazing goodness of chia and adds a little decadent chocolate. Hey, adding decadent does not take away any of the nutritional value of the bowl. I add a little yogurt for protein, some favorite fruits and toppings, and this beauty emerged.
If you are craving a burger, and want to try something that is new and completely fulfilling, you must give quinoa burgers a shot. The quinoa, beans, chia and flax seed pack an abundance of protein and fiber, as well as other nutrients. The chipotle seasoning and sauce give the burger a tangy hot and spicy flavor that will make you forget that it is so healthy. To keep it gluten free, we added grilled portobello mushrooms for the bun, and built our burger with avocado and carmelized onions. Yum, is all I can say, but judge for yourself. Read more…
One of the the most important things to me in pursuing a super healthy lifestyle, is that I don’t want to feel deprived. I want to enjoy my food and look forward to making and eating recipes that excite me. I don’t care about eating meat, or even chips, but sugar and chocolate, well, I love them. This breakfast parfait has so much nutritional value and has a little sweetness to make it feel like you are seriously eating dessert for breakfast.
