My first time eating Poutine!

So I’ve been visiting a friend in Canada and we went to Costco the other day.  She said we have to get some Poutine.  I of course asked “what is that”?  She showed me the picture and explained that it’s fries, gravy, with some cheese curds.  “Ummmmmm yeah no thanks” […]


Quinoa burritos

Quinoa…oh how I love thee.  It nourishes me with protein and all the amino acids to make it a complete protein!  You can eat it hot, warm, or cold.  You can eat it alone, with veggies, or with fruit.  You can eat it in a salad, or burritos, or make […]

Creamy Avocado Banana Smoothie

I’ve actually been looking at my diet differently lately.  Yes I always focus on nourishing and eating right and getting as many vitamins and minerals in each meal but I have focused on more anti-inflammatory lately.  My dad has had rheumatoid arthritis for about 30+ years now.  And I don’t […]
