Have you ever heard of massaging your vegetables?!  I kept on hearing about massaged kale salads.  And then one day I had one.  And I never thought poorly of kale again.  The end.

It was on a vacation, a few years ago and we stumbled across the nicest far...

Smoothies are an awesome transport mechanism for protein and for the vitamins and fiber found in berries or other fruits (today was mango!).

After a long day at work, especially on evenings I work-out, I want easy and nutritious for dinner.

Lentils are such an unsung hero; we don't think of them often enough to be the star of a meal.

As I have been learning more about nutrition and how to eat to make me feel my best, one approach has really stood out, and this is the Precision Nutrition (PN) approach to eating.

First, the recipes. Then, the benefits.

One of my favorite ways to prepare cauliflower is to roast it in the oven. Set up a large cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Set your oven to 400 degrees.
