Chia pudding has been around for awhile, so I thought I’d gather together a bunch of superfoods and put a new spin on it. This is a great little preworkout breakfast or afternoon snack, since it has that little kick of energy from the matcha powder. Make it the night before and it’ll be all…

Moroccan Spiced Zucchini & Cauliflower Salad

Cauliflower and Zucchini Salad

Growing up there was only one way my mom could get me and my younger sister to eat cauliflower or broccoli – by smothering it with cheddar cheese.  I got older and like with many foods learned to appreciate these two vegetables in their more natural state. Sadly my husband has never had the same…
