Roasting radishes brings out a sweetness you never knew existed! Pair them with white beans, fresh parsley, feta and a lemon vinaigrette for a healthy and delicious side dish.
One of the worst things, (for me) about writing a food blog is that I can almost never eat the same meal twice. Really. No matter how much I loved it – there’s always a new blog post to write, which means a new recipe to create.

I’m wondering…. If you knew a food was really good for you, even had super powers, would you eat more of it? I have a few favorite foods that I try to eat regularly because they are really good for me, but I wonder if I’m just weird like that because I’m a nutritionist, or do others do that?
