Spinach Salad

This is the second salad featured in my “Salad Series”.  This simple Spinach Salad has organic spinach, spiralized carrots, roasted Brussels sprouts, slivered almonds and raisins.  It is an excellent base for additional ingredients such as meat, eggs, sweet potato or rice.  Without further…

Black Sesame & Carrot Meatballs

I don’t have any problems getting my husband or son to eat vegetables (thankfully), but I still like to sneak them in my cooking when I can.  My husband likes a lot of vegetables, but he doesn’t like carrots!  Can you believe that?!  (It’s…
