Leftovers: Broccoli Beet Salad with Red Wine Vinaigrette #HealthyFridays

My Take on Leftovers There are so many children in this country who go hungry to bed or to school. In the same token there is an abundance of food thrown away on daily basis. Whether it’s leftovers from last nights dinner or expired food items we never had the chance to cook. Regardless, below is my take on leftovers. By the way for all of you who have been blessed with an abundance of food consider helping out with this great organization: No Kid Hungry. This nonprofit organization is helping to eradicate child-hunger from American Schools. Every fifth child goes hungry to school. That's … [Read more...]

A Super Food Cocktail That Makes You Look Good #HealthyFridays

A Super Food Cocktail That Is Addicting Have you ever wondered if there is a healthy food that makes you feel good without a lot of calories? A healthy food concoction that you can drink several times a day? Something you would even crave on a daily basis.  It is similar to a smoothie or should I say Froothie (that's my version of a super Food Cocktail). Which I explain in a while. A smoothie is around for a while and I have always enjoyed them tremendously. I also used to use a juicer on a regular basis until I got tired of throwing all the good pulp away. On the other hand my experience … [Read more...]

Mama’s Organic Egg Spinach Power Sandwich #HealthyFridays

Welcome to my first #HealthyFriday post. As you probably have realized I'm gearing up my blog towards natural healthy foods and recipes with emphasis on organic ingredients. In short it's all about the whole foods experience. Don't get me wrong I do enjoy other foods like desserts and cakes, which I will still post here and there. However, the trend to healthy foods is the only way (in my opinion) to stay sane and healthy in this hectic technology driven world. We are surrounded by heavily processed foods, that are not healthy at all. In my upcoming posts I will get more into the myth or truth … [Read more...]

Black Bean Vegetable Wrap with Chipotle Mayo

After raising two boys into young adults I realized we have grown up in a fast food society where processed foods rule. Thinking back I regret having done some fundamental errors. I always thought - OK - if the kids behave I will reward them with a treat. And the treat was the kid’s meal at Mc Donald’s (that's when they were really small), since they had an indoor playground where they could play after their meal. What a terrible mistake. I instilled junk food as a way of an incentive for my kids. I can never forgive myself for that. I remember my kids knew all the burger joints by name before … [Read more...]

Grandmothers Cinnamon Stars for Christmas

I can't believe it is this time of the year again. Not too long ago I packed all my Christmas decoration away - it seems.  Well, I think Christmas is  the best time of the year. Beautiful childhood memories reminding me of the Christmas Holiday preparation.    Grandma's Cinnamon Stars Were The Best Just the smell of freshly baked cinnamon stars reminds me of my Grandmother baking during the Holidays.  There was something magical to it.  I was fortunate to have spent a lot of time with my Grandma watching her baking Christmas cookies,  that is cinnamon stars in particular.  I was just … [Read more...]
