Salads, eggs, protein, grilled vegetables, etc. Essentially anything that needs an extra kick, gets a serving of my fresh homemade salsa. It’s a great lower-calorie alternative to give your
I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical when a friend invited me to sample some vegan desserts one muggy night in NYC. We walked about 15 blocks just to get there since she said it was faster than taking an Uber or the subway. And the way my metabolism is set up…yeah, I sweat just thinking
