  • Go green this summer with kale

    The rest of the world is figuring out what Southerners have known for hundreds of years. Eat your greens.

    Kale is the latest trendy thing to eat. Kale is a “superfood,” cholesterol-lowering champion, cancer-fighting hero, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory powerhouse. Okay, so maybe southerners didn’t know all of those things, or the fact that kale is rich in vitamins A, K, C, magnesium and fiber, neither did the rest of country until recently.

  • Plenty of grains, plenty of options

    Some of you out there will be able to relate to my recent experience in the supermarket. I was heading down the rice and grains aisle and I could not believe the variety of grains available.

    I thought, “Surely there can’t be 30 different kinds of rice and five varieties of quinoa. It felt like my brain went through the mill.

    Time to sift through all of this. Enough grain puns.

    Here are some of the more popular grains and their uses:

  • Seniors treated to gospel music
  • Warm weather brings fresh food ideas

    The warm weather is finally here.

    Any day now there will be fresh produce on at the local farmer’s market on U.S. 127 and the one in Frankfort. Gone are the Christmas cookies, and sadly the Girl Scout cookies I hid in the back of my freezer, devoured.

    This is the time of year I look forward to working in my kitchen; it’s a new beginning, a fresh start, eat healthier, walk more, get in the garden, drink more water.
