Last weekend I had a huge craving for grapefruit and made a bunch of grapefruit inspired recipes! I played around in the kitchen and came up with a Grapefruit Greens Smoothie (recipe below) and a Farro and Broccolini salad with lime, grapefruit and dill dressing. Both are super freshening and very hearty. The citrus flavor of the grapefruit compliments the pineapple and fennel (my new favorite veggie) really well. Hope you like them as much as I do! Enjoy.

Who am I and do why write this blog? Each time I ask myself that question, I find that I have so much more to learn and discover. "Who am I" is an ongoing process, and just when we think we've figured it out, life has its way of throwing us a ton of curve balls-but that's why its called a journey.
