I’m sick of winter.  Anyone else?  Make an easy pina colada and bring some pretend sunshine in your life.   It feels like here in Utah, our winter is almost half the year.  We often have snow starting in November, and continuing until March. 5 MONTHS! I get desperate, man.  I really do.  I’m pretty sure this lack of sunshine, abundance of cold and smog, and the infamous Utah inversion brings out the worst of me.  And to anyone who […]

If you like salad, but are looking for something other than the standard ranch to dress it up with, you should try this Lemon Dill Dressing. I’ve been eating a LOT of salad.  But I can’t have ranch (mayo, which has eggs and dairy) or most other dressings (sugar, corn)…so I made my own, and I’m not gonna lie, it’s really been love at first taste, and I’m SO grateful for that!  It’s made my eating much easier.  It’s super […]

Crunch to the crunch, baby.   I love a good crunch to my chicken “nuggets”.  It’s something I had to give up over the summer when I started on my anti-inflammatory diet.    Well, in the last 2 months I’ve been allowed to slowly add new foods back into my diet, one at a time.  And while nuts are allowed, they just weren’t giving me the classic crunch I was looking for.           So I cheated.   […]
