My Guilty Pleasure….dark chocolate.

Watercress

Watercress is a leafy dark green which has not been given enough attention. It’s a superfood. I have been adding watercress to my smoothies lately. I always new it was good for me but never really enjoyed the taste of it on it’s own. I have found fresh and alive watercress in my local market […]

Himalayan Salt

Porridge – I look at it as a SUPERFOOD!

I read a study about “centurions” a few years ago and one thing they all had in common was that they all ate oatmeal (porridge) for breakfast every morning. I was recently talking with a friend of mine who also eats steel cut oatmeal every day for breakfast.  I shared with her a little bit […]

Turnips

With our Thanksgiving fresh in my mind, I’m reminded of a vegetable that we don’t include in our weekly rotation of vegetables very often.  It is often served at holidays along with the festive roast turkey dinner.  I never would have thought that this rarely eaten vegetable would be so good for you.  Time to start […]
