Hi friends and welcome! It’s that time of year when we start to think about Thanksgiving and all the comforting foods that surround this holiday!  Personally, I’m more of a sides girl.  Forget the turkey, just gimme all the stuffing and roasted veggies and I’m a happy girl!  The temps are still in the 90’s here in Southern California and this girl is beginning to …

I’ve been thinking about falafels, ever since having a falafel wrap for lunch at a local restaurant a few weeks ago.  Is that weird?  Probably!  Do I care?  No, not at all.  Because I feel like I’ve created the falafel of all falafels!  It’s loaded with veggies, herbs, garlic and most importantly SUPERFOODS.  This is the Superwoman of falafels!  Not only do they taste amazing, …

thefitforkfeed - January 5, 2016

Now that we got our smoothies out of the way, let’s get into the salads.  I’m not talking boring old salads with nothing in them.  I like my salads with a lot of STUFF in them.  I feel that a salad should have something creamy, crunchy, sweet and tart so you have an explosion of flavors and textures when you take each bite.  You know, …
