 WHOA-MEGA salad: 

Organic arugula
Baby spinach
Cucumber
Cherry Tomatoes
Organic Basil
Avocado
Roasted Wild Salmon
Nori Furikake
Miso Sesame Ginger Dressing

Here's a great new salad recipe that is simple to make and tastes amazing! The avocado and roasted wild salmon are also great healthy sources of Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to decrease Triglyceride levels in the blood, which can help maintain a healthy heart. They also act as an anti-inflammatory agent in the body, shown to help with conditions such as joint pain, depression, and even dementia. Putting the right ingredients in your salad may be the first step towards a long and healthy life.

  2. Add cachaca or white rum, pumpkin puree, and ice. Shake until thoroughly mixed and chilled. Strain into a glass filled with ice, and garnish with grated nutmeg and a lime wheel.

October is here, and it's time to start using pumpkins for more than just pie and pumpkin spiced lattes. The Pumpkin Capirinha Cocktail is a great way to add some festive Fall flavor to your dinner party libations, without adding lots of refined sugars. Sweetened with natural agave nectar, this pumpkin elixir is sweet, delicious, and refreshing. And don't forget! Pumpkin is a great source of Beta-Carotene, Vitamin C, Fiber, and Potassium, providing a slightly healthier edge to your average cocktail. Beware! The ginger will add some spice, so grate as needed. Welcome to Fall, Enjoy!
