We haven’t made as much fresh juice as we usually do this summer, so we decided to raid the fridge and put something together. I had plans for the greens from a bunch of beets, but didn’t know what I was going to do with the actual beets yet, so we used that as the base. This juice is jam-packed with nutrients, and is bursting with freshness. Continue Reading →

To use some of the beautiful Fresh Blueberry Vinaigrette that I made, I put together a salad for myself for dinner. My (lactose intolerant) husband had to run out to band practice, so I figured I’d celebrate by frying up some goat cheese and drinking wine. It had been a while since I had a massaged kale salad, so I decided to use that as a base. Not that I’m above just consuming fried cheese and wine for dinner, by any means ;). Continue Reading →

I picked up a few bunches of beets from the Farmers Market yesterday, and while I knew what I wanted to do with the greens, I wasn’t 100% sure what I wanted to do with the actual beets. I knew I wanted to roast at least some of them, but the thought of heating up the oven for an hour or more really didn’t sound too appealing in the midst of this summer heat. Then I had an idea – what if I prepared them the same way as I would to roast them in the oven, but just put them in the slow cooker for a few hours on high instead? I recently tried wrapping salmon in foil and cooking it in the slow cooker, and it was fantastic, so why not give this a shot? Continue Reading →

I love beet chips. They’re nice and sweet and crispy, and when baked, they’re pretty healthy, too. I remembered that I had a few beets buried in my fridge, and I thought that making chips would be the perfect way to use them up. Continue Reading →

I tried kohlrabi for the first time a few weeks ago at the Farmers’ Market. It was really good! It’s nice and crispy, kind of reminiscent of jicama or celery root. I used a mandoline to julienne one giant kohlrabi and 2 pretty big beets. I tossed it with a … Continue Reading →
