Being balanced in every area of life is so ridiculously hard but so important and something I strive for. Food is no exception when it comes to balance. I love chatting with people about flavors, smells, textures, and health benefits of food. I love the memories surrounding food and the people who gather for it. I’m teaming up with The Toasted Pine Nut to share a few recipes that not only look delicious, but are delicious! She’s sweet as a button and her recipes will make you feel fit and fab with every bite! Take a look for yourself! 🙂 Mustard and Herb ShrimpLemon Chia Seed MuffinsChocolate Peanut Butter CupsHomemade Pecan Milk
