Happy 2020 to all my readers! Let’s all look at life with 20/20 clarity and make the most of every day. Sharing a love of cooking has brought light and joy into my world and I am very appreciative that you feel the same.

Oh yes, the “day of reckoning” has arrived. It was fun while the holidays lasted but really, let’s get down to cleaning up our diets and welcoming more healthy choices this New Year. Often we hear that salads are great but we are hungry an hour later and start foraging in the pantry. Well, there is a solution to this” prob-llama.” (Just had to put that in there!) PROTEIN! Adding protein to a salad will satiate you and you can then get out and walk, ski, swim, bike, hike, run…whatever you fancy. Give this salad a whirl. Bon Appetit!
