Talk about a perfect mix of flavors! I love this beet, goat cheese, and walnut salad. This salad hits all the bells and whistles; it’s earthy, a little sweet from the beets, tangy, has crunch from the walnuts, has some creaminess from the goat cheese, and just has a unique flavor-not your typical salad! Plus, there are so many healthy benefits from eating beets!
Confession time- I used to hate beets! Until one day, I went to a restaurant to meet up with some friends. My friends were munching on a salad just like this recipe. I wanted to give it a try. Yup, explosion in my mouth! Who knew beets were so delicious! I went back to the same restaurant a few weeks ago and found out they do not serve that salad anymore. Bummer. So I did some searching a found this recipe. It could not be easier! And thank goodness, now I can have the salad whenever I want! And now you can have it whenever you want!

I love how diverse chicken can be…it’s a blank slate for so many amazing flavors and is a healthy, lean meat. One of my favorite Italian dishes is Chicken Marsala! The flavor is kicked up in this recipe with the addition of Prosciutto and fresh tarragon. Try it this week!
Pumpkin, pumpkin, “how do I love thee? Let me count the ways….” Yes, I’m obsessed with pumpkin! And it’s pumpkin season! If you are a pumpkin junkie like me, then you will “fall” for this pumpkin oatmeal recipe, inspired by Lisa Lillien (aka Hungry Girl). It’s filling, super healthy, and oh, so delectable!

Oh Salmon, how we adore thee…Thank you for being one of the world’s healthiest and most delicious foods. Universally praised for keeping anyone with really any type of health condition strong, you are jam packed with those treasured Omega-3s and vitamins A, B and D! And salmon is also so flexible, perfectly tasty simply seasoned with salt, pepper and lemon; or coated with a glaze, I’ll take salmon any way I can!
I love me some Mediterranean flavors, so fresh and so tasty…olives, garlic, vegetables, beans, fish…delish! These ingredients are especially beneficial to anyone with rheumatoid arthritis or high-blood pressure. Scientific research shows that diets rich in fruits, vegetables, fish, nuts, and beans have disease-fighting properties. One study involving people with rheumatoid arthritis showed that those who followed a Mediterranean-style diet had significantly less joint swelling, tenderness, and pain, and also lowered blood pressure. Sounds good to me!!! This recipe was inspired by a cod recipe I typically steam over the grill, but because I had no fish in the freezer, chicken was the next best lean meat! I do highly recommend making this with cod, tilapia or halibut though, wonderful!
