Texas Caviar – Super Bowl Party Vinaigrette

This is a very simple, light, refreshing, and colorful vegetarian salad perfect for a light lunch, afternoon snack, or to share at a party, barbecue, or any fun gathering.

Chickpeas Vinaigrette – Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe

Chick Peas, also known as Garbanzo Beans, is very high in protein, thus an excellent food choice for vegetarians, vegans, and great for Fat Smash Diet folks.

I prefer vinaigrette salads over the ones with mayo, and would easily choose many vegetables over some meats. This Chick Peas Vinaigrette salad is just the perfect combination for me, and you might like it as well.

The Fat Smash Diet – Healthy Lifestyle

If you have been following my blog, you already know that I am very impressed with The Fat Smash Diet, and love following all the phases at least once every year (usually mid-January), with very rewarding results.
Of course, before making this decision, you should check with your Primary Care Physician if your medications and pre-existing conditions will allow you to make these lifestyle changes.

Some people think it is too harsh (no coffee or alcohol for 9 days…wow…), but it is perfect for my taste and my lifestyle.

Suburban Potato Salad – Recipe

There are many different recipes for potato salad, but one of my favorite ones is the Suburban Potato Salad. I love the added color and texture created by the fruit and vegetables. It makes a very nice addition to other party foods, as well as a side dish for lunch, dinner, picnic, or barbecue. This recipe makes about 6 cups of salad.

Lots of hot days in the sun, more time for outdoor fun, and less time to spend in the kitchen.

This is a very refreshing fruit salad, great for any occasion, and very easy to prepare.
