Smoothie time!

4 large strawberries

a few slices of fresh pineapple

about 3/4 cup rice milk

Salads are for winter too!

While at home in SC for the holidays, my family and I have been frequently visiting the local healthy foods grocery market called EarthFare. They have a great selection of all things healthy. I purchased so far: red quinoa in bulk, organic sea salt, incense sage, lemongrass essential oil, cocoa powder for hot chocolate, kelp powder, miso soup, sandwich mix sprouting seeds, jasmine and mint gunpowder loose teas, slivered almonds, and carob and spirulina snack bites. YUM! We just came from there to get a light dinner, since they also serve cooked/raw/vegan foods. I had apple almond quinoa salad and a szechwan snow peas with roasted  garlic salad. SOOO GOOD! I ate it up so fast, I forgot to take a photo! I did snap a shot of EarthFare, so shot out to them for being a positive change to my small hometown.

I made sure I kept the little ingredients list so that I can make these 2 salads myself when I get back. Here it is:
