Grapefruit Pistachio Salad

Earlier this month we visited Dave’s family in Florida. One of my favorite things about traveling there is the fresh citrus. We always go shopping and pick up bags and bags of oranges, grapefruit and tangerines – and that’s before we head over to the juice station to get fresh, unpasteurized grapefruit and orange juice.

Delicious, Healthy and Did I Mention It’s Vegan Kale and Beet Salad

This salad came about because I have a ton of kale and a ton of beets and Dave doesn’t like either of those things. So I made lunches for two days: two of yesterday’s rice/bean/lemon salad for him, and two of this earthy, filling kale salad for me: This was going to be yesterday’s post, […]
