Happy Father's Day!!!

"Anyone can be a father but it takes someone special to be a dad." Happy Father's Day to all of the dads out there!

For this Father's day I decided to make my dad a candy bouquet since I know he loves candy.

Here's how you can make one yourself:

Recipe: Vegan Romaine Lettuce Wraps

(Friday's post being uploaded today... oops!)
Oh my heaven's ta Betsy! Today I made my new favorite snack/lunch. Whoever thinks healthy food is plain and boring has obviously never tried this.
If you want a delicious meal that is quick and easy then definitely make lettuce wraps.
The beauty about lettuce wraps is that you can literally add whatever ingredients you want to your lettuce. I just threw in what we had around the house (totally random) but they turned out to be amazing!! My niece and I loved them!

I chopped up some onions, bell peppers, tomatoes, and mushrooms. Next I poured in a little bit of extra virgin olive oil in a pan over medium heat and sautéed the vegetables. As the mushrooms started to turn brown, I added spinach to the mixture. Then maybe a minute later everything was ready to eat! (Salt and pepper can be added at the end if preferred.)
It's best to use romaine lettuce since they act as a taco shell or bowl for your food.
Here are my lettuce wraps:

(Romaine lettuce is an excellent source of protein, calcium, omega 3's, minerals, etc.)
Like I said before, you can add whatever you want to your wrap; salsa, fruit, seafood, veggies, anything!
Try it out! It's quick, simple, and totally healthy. I'll be posting more of my lettuce wraps in the future. Happy Eating!

Can You Guess The Name Of This Fruit?

Hi Everyone!

One of my attributes is that I like experimenting with unique and exotic foods. Today I tried a fruit that I've never seen or even heard of. Can you guess what it is?


 I'll give you a hint: It's a type of melon that originated in Africa.
