Hearty Summer Salad

Hearty Summer Salad

I’ve been a salad lover since I was a little girl. I was the kid who wanted a salad at Wendy’s instead of a burger (really).

Healthy Indulgence

This photo was taken at a business event in LA. Dessert after lunch was a huge bowl of delicious fresh local berries, plus a side bowl of fresh whipped cream. Why yes I will indulge – and feel Slim, Fit and Sexy! Deprivation – “You can’t have that!” Deprivation feels like something is being taken […]

Green Soup… for Realz?

Green Soup… for Realz?
