With gut health the new topic of interest lately, fermented foods are gaining in popularity. Not only do fermented foods provide your body with increased enzymes and probiotics, but they can also boost nutrient content such as B-vitamins that may help increase energy levels, improve digestion, and keep your immune system healthy and thriving!

Vegetable spiralizers are on the rage lately… and with good reason! These fun little wizards can turn any vegetables into ‘noodles’ to be used in place of pasta. You can also use them to thinly slice carrots for salads, or cut sweet potatoes to make crispy baked fries! There are so many options that the possibilities are endless. One of my favorite ways to eat them are by placing them in soups! I had some of my dad’s canned tomato juice sitting in my cupboard, and I thought, “What the heck- let’s cook em up in that!” DELICIOUS. If you like the taste of fresh tomatoes, this is a recipe for you!
When we think of salmon, we often think of it as this marvelous fish that packs a healthy punch of omega-3 fatty acids. While this is definitely true, it also provides our bodies with SO MUCH MORE. It contains high amounts of vitamin B12 (cobalamin), vitamin D, protein, and selenium. It also contains vitamin B3 (niacin), phosphorus, and other vitamins and minerals, so eat up! This recipe is simple to prepare and takes very little time. Perfect for a weeknight meal for the family or a weekend dinner… with a little wine.. some chocolate covered strawberries… If you catch my drift. 😉
