Let’s Dish it Out!

Spring is here! Not only is it a new season weather wise but also food wise. Some veggies coming into season are apsaragus, arthichokes, and everyone’s favorite…avocados! My favorite fruit is also coming to a kitchen counter near you. There’s nothing more refreshing than pineapples to help with that sweet tooth craving without the guilt. My all-time favorite dish to make for family get togethers is Guacamole. Here’s my delicious recipe!

People have the misconception that eating healthy is all salads and chicken. On the contrary, a diet with a variety of healthy foods is more likely to have success than a diet that is limited in variety.

I’ve grilled, broiled, and aluminum foiled in my kitchen like a mad food scientist for a long time whipping up as many recipes that I could on my own. I even went on a recipe egg hunt online to bring you all the recipes I could find from across the world wide web to save you the time of searching. Here’s a list of some of the yummiest, healthy recipes!
