How to Make the Perfect Kale Winter Salad

I am a big fan of the "one bowl" meal and salad definitely falls into that category. I get most of my daily veggie intake this way. During the winter I take full advantage of the dark leafy greens, cabbage, carrots and any veggies that are well priced and in season. You have to think of "salad" as a blank canvas... you really can't go wrong with any combination you want to try. A few basics that...

3 Easy Steps to Get More Fruit into Your Diet

My food epiphany came to me four years ago when I had to admit to myself that I was eating too much meat, packaged food, highly refined sugar and flour... I simply wasn't eating enough fruits and vegetables. I had lots of legitimate arguments for why I was eating too much of this and not enough of that... but really in the end I am the only one who loses, so making excuses to myself was kind of...

Over the past 12 years that I have worked for Erin I have learned quite a bit about healthy eating and how even small changes can make big differences. Even though I grew up with a Mom who wouldn't let us eat sugary cereals and always made sure there was a helping of vegetables and a glass of milk at dinner, as an adult I realize it could be more than that - and...

My Secret to Salad & Life

I am not going to deny that life hasn't been a little hectic and stressful over the last couple of months. When life gets turned upside down a healthy diet can take a back seat to fast convenient food.

Make at Home Easy Banana Smoothies

Smoothies are a big part of our food plan at home... Easy, Fast, and Portable! To think at one time I was uneducated on how to make a great smoothie!

Kale... Amazing Kale!

Kale is a standard staple vegetable in my crisper drawer because it is simply too powerful to ignore. It's inexpensive, stores well, easy to grow and readily available in grocery stores. I heard about Kale years before I started eating it, like 'collard greens' it sounded like something that you find cooked until unidentifiable in some southern dish with bacon! I actually started feeding it to my...
