One of my very favorite healthy eats is Kale.  I now seem to incorporate it into every salad I make.  Often, Kale is the base of my entire salad.  I like the crunchiness, I like the sharpness (especially when you add raisins for sweetness and balsamic vinegar for tang).   But I never knew that Kale and I have a secret love in common....

...the massage.

Who knew that we should be massaging avocado into the kale leaves?  It takes out some of the bitterness and adds a whole new level of flavor to the gorgeous green leaf.   All you need is a little lemon juice, kale and avocado... then get your hands messy.

After the massage, you'll want to let the kale rest for a few minutes (sound familiar?) and then the leaves will return to that vibrant green. 

Have fun.  And happy, healthy eats!

What would you say if someone told you you could have pizza for breakfast (or any meal, for that matter) every day and loose weight and be healthy?   You'd probably think, "Yeah, right," or "What is this? A new 'Pizza Fad Diet?'"

Pizza can actually be good for you, but it depends on a few factors.  The first being health, fresh toppings like vegetables, lean proteins, low fat cheeses, and a low-sugar pizza sauce. 

But the main factor between healthy and not-so-healthy (aka low glycemic impact or high glycemic impact) is the crust.    I recently found a recipe for a Cauliflower Crust.  It's pretty amazing.  This recipe will make a 12" pizza crust (thin and crispy) or a 9" crust that has a doughy consistancy to it.   And let me tell you... not only does it taste wonderful (it's one of those "if you didn't know it was good for you..." recipes) but it makes your entire house smell like an Italian kitchen.

This will be a new staple in my kitchen, and I am going to be playing around with spices and cheeses.  Next step: add a little fresh grated parmesan to the mix.

Here is my answer to Cold Pizza for Breakfast:  FRESH HOT Cauliflower Crusted pizza with grilled chicken, eggplant, asparagus, and broccoli.  Served with a kale and sprout salad and sliced apples.  I sipped it with a strawberry-kiwi aloe fizzy (homemade).

While the Wendy's Company may be trying to resurge their famous "Where's the beef?" campaign from the 1980's with Reid Ewing (Dylan from TV's Modern Family), those of us who have been around long enough know there can never truly be a replacement for the iconic "Where's the beef Lady?"  But today's post is not about what you might find in a Wendy's hamburger....

...Today's post is about what you might NOT find in your Taco Bell beef taco.   And what you may not find is, well, beef.   To be fair, according to this article you will only find about 36% beef in your beef taco.

Today's work is done for me by The Huffington Post's article which is simply one of MANY articles and studies about the detriment sodas (regular or diet) do to our bodies.

Addicted to sodas? Wean yourself off slowly.  If you drink a case a day, drop down to a six pack.  From a six pack, go to three, etc.   If you REALLY believe its the caffeine* you need, get it from other sources (coffee, black teas, green tea, yerba mate...  feel free to contact me about some of my favorite products in this arena).   If you claim its the carbonation you love, switch to flavored sparkling waters, then un-flavored sparkling waters with fresh squeezed lemon or lime.

When it comes down to it, if you want health bad enough, you will find a way to get there.  "Will-Power" is not what I am speaking of.

*most likely what you are addicted to is the artificial sweeteners.  For all you diet soda lovers who claim you need the caffeine to operate, by trying to reduce sugar by replacing it with artificial sweeteners, you are actually continuing the addiction/craving process of your body wanting/needing sugars.

Exercise is a key component for not just changing your body composition, but looking and feeling better about yourself.  So many of us, when we are first beginning our journey to health, may not feel comfortable going to the gym or even investing in some great workout DVDs to do at home.  Here's something I found recently that looks completely and totally do-able... and FUN.



Recently, I have been sharing recipes with some of my fellow weight management gurus.  In fact, it was them that told me to start a blog and share with the world.   It was this meal that prompted my friends.  And it was a lack of food in my house that prompted this recipe.

"Scarborough Fair" Seasoned Stuffed Tomato.

3 eggwhites
1 large tomato - sliced in halve, then "gutted."  keep the meat, discard the juices/seeds.
roasted red peppers - sliced
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme - to taste.
Parmesan Cheese - just a pinch, to taste

Preheat the oven to 400
Gut the tomato and in a small bowl mix the eggwhites with the meat of the tomato, red peppers, Parmesan and asparagus.
Line a baking sheet with your favorite liner (I like silpat)
Pour the egg mixture into the tomatoes.

Put in the oven for 25-30 minutes.
