Nut Milk

Starting the anti-inflammatory diet I have been mostly just drinking water, but occasionally almond milk or coconut milk. I don't really like the texture of most of them, and they generally have added sugar and flavor, so when one of my friends mentioned that she makes her own almond milk I was intrigued. I had...

Ginger Orange Beet Salad

As you have or will notice I eat a lot of salad, and even when I'm not specifically making salad I usually throw whatever I have make on top of some spinach or lettuce or arugula.
