Post image for The Benefits of Blueberries

Photo by Erica Lea

I’m a huge fan of blueberries — I love them especially during the summer months. Not only are they a beautiful colour, but what’s more appealing to me is how many benefits they have.

While Dad was living he had several huge blueberry bushes. We'd get gallons of them each year & fill the freezers until the next year. Cobblers, cakes, plain, you name it, we ate them that way. Now I buy them & eat on any cereal, add to pancakes, or make any of my dozens of recipes men's sexuality

My fav breakfast is blueberries in greek yoghurt and a teaspoon of honey! x

I love the addition of fruit in salads. The combination of sweet and salty with herbs and vinegar is so refreshing, especially on a warm afternoon. Wheatberries would also be a good addition to a salad!

Thank you for this very informative article. I am fond of eating this creamy fruit. As a matter of fact I add milk to it and leave it in the freezer for a few minutes. I prefer to eat it as cold as possible. And as much as possible I like eating it during snack time or for dessert. It is great to know the nutrients it brings. I’m so lucky I love this fruit. I seldom eat anything after it. So, that’s the reason why after reading this article, I must buy myself more of those avocados. Anyway, please take a look at this new blog, http://www.natalieumbert.com, it’s about general news and style.

At this time it seems like Drupal is the best blogging platform available right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

this recipe was tagged Vegan, so for those who are looking for such a recipe should be warned that "ghee" is NOT vegan, it's made from butter. I don't know if you can by a vegan substitute, but you can easily replace the ghee with vegan margarine or butter (like earth balance). I doubt you'd be able to tell much, if any, difference. :)

What an amazing recipe!!! Outstanding in all 3 important categories: Quick & Easy, Delicious, and Nutritious/Healthy... p.s. to Laura....The Quacamole name no doubt, comes from the use of Quinoa in the dish!!! :D

Post image for Mediterranean Pasta Salad with Raw Squash from Cookie & Kate

This recipe comes from vegetarian food blogger, Kate, of Cookie & Kate. I love her blog because it’s chockfull of unexpected food combinations that approach the vegetarian and whole foods lifestyle with zest. Just because you choose to eat food close to the source and in season doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun. With her pup Cookie by her side, it seems like Kate is always playing it up in the kitchen, and it shows through in her recipes.

Post image for Thai Coconut Cucumber Salad from Love & Lemons

This week’s recipe comes from one of my favorite food blogging duos, Jack and Jeanine of Love & Lemons. Their blog is full of healthy (mostly vegetarian) and lactose free recipes that will make you salivate. Whenever I’m looking for healthy inspiration this is definitely a blog that I turn to. This week they prepared for us a Thai Coconut Cucumber salad that makes me yearn for late outdoor summer dinners. Read more »

I made this as part of dinner tonight, a side of an asian put-together meal. It was very satisfying, very Thai! I omitted the edamame (because I didn't want to bother with it) and tofu (since the rest of the meal I made focused largely on tofu), but instead used beech mushrooms, which worked out really well. I am a huge fan of mint used in savory dishes, and this certainly pleased me. After my boyfriend and I had our shares, plus the rest of the meal, I went back to finish the salad. I couldn't resist.

After church I saw this on twitter and thought "well I know what I'm having for lunch!" We didn't have red curry, so I learned how to make it! Instead of tofu I substituted with tilapia that had been broiled in butter and garlic salt. Since we were lacking arugula I just used romaine lettuce and added some spinach leaves in. I also sautéed some purple onions with a bit of butter, some of the red curry paste, and salt, then added those to the mix. I made it for my mother and I, and it was just delectable! We loved it. Even my brother (who doesn't like salad) was trying to devour mine. Thank you for posting this recipe! It was delicious. Next time I'll probably try using portobellos :)

Super! But need to know edible flowers.
-Jan 22, 2014, 12:49PM
This is a beautiful result, but what flowers are you using? The recipe just says "a bouquet of flowers". Some types of flowers are poisonous, or even fatal when eaten, so it would be nice if the readers knew what edible flowers you were using here.
