Quick + Easy Lemon-Garlic Brussel Sprouts (with a Tang)

Even though I’ve been working in the world of health and wellness for the past 7 years, I don’t think I met a brussels sprout I truly liked until about two years ago.

Crazy. I know.

I can’t even tell you where I was when I realized how much I like them. Apparently, it wasn’t that eventful 😛

What WAS eventful, was the day that I decided to take a crack at oven BBQ-ing some ribs and whipping up these brussels sprouts as a side dish.


Papaya Popsicles

Papaya Popsicle Recipe – Improves Digestion & Response to Heat Stress

I live in Tampa. So for me and the rest of the northern hemisphere, we’re well into the warmest season of the year: Summer. And, Nothing screams summer like a popsicle. Am I right?

Think About It

On a sweltering day in July (it’s 85 plus degrees on the regular in my neck of the woods!) when even just wiggling my pinky makes me break a sweat, it makes sense that I instinctively want to load up on foods that both energize and hydrate me. As it so happens is the case with most of us. It seems to be one of those built in, primal instincts that’s stuck with us even in our modern surroundings.READ MORE

Fourth of July “Star-Spangled” Parfait

My ideal July 4th probably looks different than yours, being that it’s a scene straight out of my favorite movie, The Sandlot.   

It’s a magical scene played out to the sound of Ray Charles’ version of “America the Beautiful” (here’s the clip) .

The main characters, nine middle school-age boys who eat, sleep and breath baseball, run through their neighborhood block-party (swiping hot dogs off of picnic tables) as they head to the sandlot for a night game.  It’s the one night of the year where the firework-speckled sky allows them each to feel “…like the big leaders under the lights of some great stadium.”


Mango Sorbet Recipe

Some days you crave something sweet. And not in the “I’m-a-sugar-addict” kind of way, simply in the “it’s-a-hot-summer-day-and-I’d-like-something-cold-and-refreshing” kind of way. Sure, ice cream could satisfy the craving, but then again most of the store bought sweetness is chalk full of refined sugar and rBGH dairy…not to mention it’s dairy and, well, that is often an issue for some of us.

OR, maybe you’re sitting down to watch an episode of The Flash with your husband who’s chowing down on (home-made) popcorn,but you don’t like popcorn…but you also want an equally tasty telly-snack that won’t give you muffin-top. Anybody? Anybody?! Just me? OK. Moving on…READ MORE

Lucky Leprechaun Green Juice Recipe

This recipe is just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, which coincidentally also happens to be my Grandma’s birthday! A double celebration. I like it. Now, before you go off shopping, dicing and juicing, let me tell you that THIS green juice is not like the others. Not only does it taste like a your favorite beach’s tiki hut special, it’s also chalk full of vitamins and minerals such as:

Vitamin A, Vitamin B6 and Thiamin (Vitamin B1), Vitamin C, Vitamin K, and Manganese.READ MORE
