Veronique’s Post: It’s Always Tea Time

What’s better than a steaming cup of tea and great book? The weather might be warming up but that won’t stop me from brewing a cup of my favorite tea. There are a variety of teas, with coinciding health benefits. Though I love my cup of Earl Grey, there are so many blends and flavors to entice […]

Veronique’s Post: You Can’t Beat Beets

Beets are finally obtaining their deserved spotlight, no longer are they treated as an ignored side dish. Though I usually turn away from what I assumed was another plain root vegetable, I found myself drawn to these earthy bundles. When you cut into the rough dirty exterior of these, you unearth beautiful jeweled tones of red and gold. Beets are extremely […]

Emily’s Post: Veggie Up Dinner

One of my more recent obsessions is spaghetti squash.  Spaghetti squash is a pale yellow winter squash that resembles the appearance of spaghetti on the inside.  It is a great way to incorporate another vegetable into your meal, and is a great substitute for spaghetti and pasta.  If you are trying to reduce your intake […]
