5 Foods to Explore

blog-fitlife-011715-2

Generally speaking, I am not fond of the word “should”.  Should implies that I am wrong, or that there is only one way to do something.  Therefore, I will not say these five foods “should” be in your diet. What I will say is that they are wonderful (and tasty) to explore! Consider adding one or more to your kitchen adventures.  My particular favorite is ghee, clarified butter.  It adds a wonderful nutty taste to whatever you are cooking–including popcorn!  Follow the link:

Brownie Valentine

Raw Brownies

Disclaimer: I whole-heartedly believe in the benefits of good dark chocolate. That being said, sometimes trying something new can be fun. Here is a recipe for Raw Brownies. Medjool dates are involved, another favorite food of mine. These are chocolaty and decadently moist.
