My love of the culinary arts dates back as far as I can remember – and that is quite some time ago. This section highlights delish dishes made with my culinary partners in crime and recipes from others who share my passion for cooking.
I recently posted on Facebook, that I had a new addiction – KALE! You wouldn’t believe the outpouring of kale dietary comments, recipes and products. I decided to start a new series of posts – my addiction to kale. I will continue to post new and exciting discoveries with this leafy green as I feed my healthy addiction. We will begin with kale chips. Who doesn’t love a nice salty chip, but this one won’t leave you feeling guilty.
Bunch/Bushel or whatever it is called of kale (any color)
The DDG is thankful to partner with local organizations that make a difference on the healthy living front. I hope you check out Food For Thought Learning Institute, who teach vulnerable members of the community basic kitchen safety, nutritional information and food preparation skills needed to overcome hunger in their homes. They whipped a diabetic friendly bread pudding recipe for us. Hope you enjoy.
All runners know the moment intimately. You’re halfway through a long morning run. You know that the finish line is crossable. You’ve been chewing on dates, Hammer gels, and all other forms of caffeine carbohydrate concoctions for the last hour or so. You can actually hear your stomach growling. All the pain or fatigue starts to disappear, being replaced by this insatiable hunger. All you can think about is EATING. (more…)
So I am always down for a new bean salad recipe, weird I know, but I LOVE having a fiber rich side item I can enjoy for a few days. While in North Carolina, Ryan’s aunt Stephanie was kind enough to share her colorful masterpiece. You can totally spice it up if you prefer a little heat with your fiber.
Note To Self: Should you be a gassy soul, you might want to eat alone or take a Beano.
