  • Check out Hick Chick just for fun and Living Tastefully for a beautiful banana breakfast treat.
  • To satisfy your artsy needs, take a look at Robin Rosenberg’s Fine Art site. Robin passed on a strawberry life-extending tip that she learned from her mom. To extend freshness for up to 2 weeks, refrigerate your strawberries in a closed jar. I’m currently testing it out.

    Hemp seeds- I don’t eat much fish so I have been incorporating these onto my salads and yogurt to get my “omegas” – but I am sure you could come up with something more creative!

    I love to eat bananas and chocolate and some times blend frozen ripe bananas and raw cacao powder with maca and coconut water to make a great smoothie.

    I like entertaining for brunch but I find I serve the same old thing. I’d like to find an easy to make dish (the kind that cooks in the oven while you get the other stuff prepared), that’s a little off the beaten track for brunch (but still a brunch food). Maybe eggs that are matched with an unusual ingredient or French toast with a twist…
    I trust you will come up with something.
