The "Let’s Go to F**king Hawaii" Tropical Green Smoothie!

Since most of the north east is currently experience one last blast of winter at the beginning of spring, and I have a fridge full of seasonally-inappropriate tropical fruits, I thought I would create a little smoothie in honour of. If the weather sucks, just drink something to brighten your…

Crunchy Sweet Potato Chips

I’m always on the look-out for new healthy, tasty snack ideas, both for myself, for clients, and for friends.  I can recommend that we all eat salads until greens are growing out of our ears, but nothing really wows a crowd or a skeptical client quite like a healthy, nutrient-packed…
