Dinner Salad

Salad for dinner was something I started enjoying back as a vegetarian. Yes, vegetarian. Was a long time ago and while I feel great not eating meat, that is not something I’m keen to do again. As a kid salad was part of every dinner, it was not the main meal. Salads for any meal…

Thai Quinoa Salad – Meal planning for the win!

Since I recently went on a Facebook break I have spent more time on Pinterest scoping out recipes and workouts, among other things.

My meals – at this point in time.

When I decided to start my blog I was so excited to talk about food, share recipes and of course discuss other interesting things that came up along the way. It’s been interesting posting pictures of food that I’ve prepared and meals I’ve had recently as they haven’t been under my alkaline/Paleo/gluten free lifestyle. I…
