I’m going to let you in on one of the greatest grocery store secrets of all time…
Happy Tuesday! Have you recovered from that crazy Superbowl?! Neither Dylan’s nor my team were in the Superbowl this year so we didn’t really have any stake in the game, but as a football fan in general that turned out to be one incredible game.
Have you ever had a dish that you knew was probably easy, but for some reason you were intimated to make it? The first dish that comes to my mind that intimidates me is Shepherd’s Pie. Random fact, I’ve never actually even had shepherd’s pie. My parents never made it when I was growing up, it’s not something you can commonly order from a restaurant menu, and when I look at recipe for one I just get overwhelmed. The second dish? Chicken Pot Pie.
Show of hands for those of you that thinking about salads make you think about summer?! My hand definitely would have went straight up in the air – until recently that is. I always thought of a fresh salad with a glass of crisp white wine enjoyed on a patio with the sun shining. In this 20 degree winter weather I think about mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, and other various calorie-heavy comfort foods.
This how-to Tuesday was a bit of a no brainer. Not only do I spiralize a lot and have a whole category dedicated to the recipes, but if you haven’t heard I am a new Brand Ambassador for the Inspiralizer!
Spiralizing is easy and fun, and you can create so many healthy recipes! In addition, the number of different fruits and vegetables you can spiralize is endless. From zucchini to sweet potatoes, to apples, cucumbers, onions and butternut squash (just to name a few), there are so many options!
UPDATE: My Deconstructed Green Smoothie Bowl has been one of my most popular recipes. Healthy, fun and packed with nutrients, readers are loving this different take on a traditional smoothie. The below recipe is updated in partnership with Well-Being Secrets with more healthy, science based information on why bananas, a key ingredient in this smoothie, are such a great fruit that you should be adding to all of your smoothies!
Green smoothies. They’re all the rage. And rightfully so – they’re packed with healthy fruits and vegetables, you can customize them to your preference, add ‘super foods’ and proteins, use them to recover from workouts, and in one tasty glass you can get most of your daily intake of vegetables that you need for a healthy diet.
We had gotten back from The Bahamas and had a little time to kill before we could check into our hotel, so we stopped at this place for some wine. It was fantastic; how it basically works is that you preload what looks like a credit card with however much money you want. Then you can go around to the 100’s of wines and pick your pour – 1 oz., 3 oz., 5 oz., 9 oz., etc. The bigger the pour, the more expensive it is.
