Sun-kissed Kitchen!

It's true for most of us that staying outside for too long under the sun's hot rays can cause burning, which means skin damage! When I discovered that attaining sun-kissed skin is as simple as opening the refrigerator door, it seemed too good to be true. But studies have shown that antioxidants called Carotenoids, commonly found in brightly colored produce such as carrots, red peppers, squash, and tomatoes, are more effective at bestowing radiance to your skin than even the sun's rays! Lead researcher at the University of Nottingham, Dr. Ian Stephen asserts that by incorporating these foods into your diet is a great alternative to lying in the sun and a more attractive skin color.
Why are carotenoids so astounding? They specialize in absorbing the harmful compounds our bodies create when under stress and strain, especially when trying to fend off illness. While sunlight still remains an excellent source of Vitamin D, support a healthier lifestyle by utilizing other methods for a glowing complexion!

Vegan Wednesday! Delicious Summer Salad!

The temperatures here in Wichita have been in the 100s and for me, that's just about unbearable! Because of these outrageous temps, I've been craving COLD foods. Here is a great recipe for a delicious summer salad that will help keep you cool while everything else is sizzling!

Avocado Grapefruit Salad

½ avocado
1 small or ½ medium sized grapefruit
2 tbsp scallions, chopped
¼ cup cucumber, cut into fourths and then chopped
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
juice of 1 lemon
2 tsp organic soy sauce
black pepper to taste
  1. Peel and cut avocado into ½ inch pieces.
  2. Peel grapefruit and use only the flesh without the thin white skin in between the fleshy parts and cut or tear into pieces.
  3. Combine avocado, grapefruit, scallions, and cucumber together carefully, add sesame seeds, lemon juice, soy sauce, and black pepper.
