A while back, my husband sent me an article entitled, “These Foods Are the Closest You’ll Get to Immortality” that highlighted six foods. It said, “Want to look young forever? Eat the right foods. When we follow a diet that’s rich with a variety of high-quality foods that contain antioxidants, healthy fats, water, and different nutrients, our body will show its appreciation through its largest organ: our skin.” Who doesn’t want pretty, glowing, amazing skin? Read on for the perfect recipe that incorporates 5 of the 6 foods.
This season in our lives has certainly had its challenges. As I type this, we are still in the middle of the pandemic and things are nowhere near normal. Or what used to be normal. Or, now maybe a new normal. Anyway, I have been trying to keep things as sane as possible and trying to come up with ideas for dinner. And that is how salad came to be a regular dinner around here.
I love this salad! Black beans, quinoa, corn, red onions, cucumbers, radishes, toasted pumpkin seeds, and fresh lime juice. That’s the recipe. It’s so easy, make it for lunch or a big bowl for company!
I love making salads in the springtime. To me, the ideal salad is a combination of fresh lettuce with some fresh fruit, crunchy nuts, and something briny. In this case, that’s capers. Doused in tangy, lemony dressing, this salad is perfect for one or a crowd.
Have you seen this little beauty at the farmer’s market or store? It is probably my new favorite vegetable. It’s the Honey Nut Squash. It recently arrived on the vegetable scene and apparently it has a good origin story.
