Let's Talk About Butternut Squash...
I'll be honest - I'm not a fan of trying vegetables or fruits before exploring and discovering its background. Allowing my taste buds to try something new comes from my comfortability of knowing the foods I garden and cook will improve my overall health.
The Fairy Named Cranberry...
Growing up, I looked forward to Thanksgiving holiday because I knew cranberry sauce will be on the menu. I enjoyed the taste of tart cranberries with the earthly herbs and spices.
Don't Joke With Artichokes!
My eyes and curious taste buds were introduced to artichokes during an episode of MTV's Real World San Diego. Camilla and Frankie were in the hot tub and the cameras caught a scene when Camilla was demonstrating how to properly eat an artichoke.
Tomato, Say It Isn't So!
I believe vegetables have a bad reputation when we're introduced to them at the dinner table. When we're younger, we grimace our faces and protest eating them. As kids, we believe vegetables are gross, disgusting, unnecessary - you name it!
Behold the Power of Cumin
Allow me to be honest—cumin and I met close to a year ago. I knew it was "foodie" love when our taste buds met. The strong aroma of the spice resembles the strong roots.
I’m a Southern girl at heart. Peaches play a huge role in my baking and cooking journey. Most of all, I love making different versions of peach cobbler, adding them to my smoothies, and cooking with my proteins.
Cherries Are For More Than Just Pies...
Who doesn't love cherries? They're sweet, tart, and juicy all in one bite. I love to cook my proteins with them. I like to experiment with cherries in my pastries, muffins, and cookies. Traditionally, cherries are accustomed to filling the responsibility of being pie filling. However, there are huge health benefits to consuming one of the most health-protective foods.
Foodie Resolutions for the New Year
The holidays are rapidly approaching as the year comes to a close. As families gather around their menorahs and fresh-cut Christmas trees, many others are declaring holiday memories and New Year resolutions! Resolutions are great to channel and focus on positive physical and mental energy. As yoga aides to relax the mind and spirit, food resolutions are essential and beneficial to health.
