Shout Out to vegetariantoday!

I want to highlight a blog, called vegetarian today.

Sarita, who is a classmate of mine, has a blog full of great information about vegetarianism. Her first blog post provides valuable information on typical vegetarian diets. Although I am not a vegetarian, I do enjoy eating meatless meals a couple times a week. Many people think that vegetarians are limited to only a small variety of foods, but that is not the case. Sarita has been a vegetarian her whole life, so I look forward to following her posts and learning more about the vegetarian lifestyle!

Another reason I am making this shout out is because she just posted an amazing potato recipe that goes great with almost any main dish. I made these potatoes with Sarita in a class called Food, Culture and Society. They are very healthy and contain lots of nutrients. If you are a fan of spicy food you will love them.

Yogurt: Great for the Skin

images (2)

Eating enough protein does wonders for our body. Protein even promotes beautiful skin. Maybe you heard the word collagen before relating to skin? Protein builds collagen and the collagen helps keep your skin firm, radiant and wrinkle-free.

So lets eat some protein! You can get protein from sources like lean meats, eggs, beans and dairy products.  If your anything like me, you love a sweet treat after a long, busy day.

I love making yogurt parfaits for dessert. Yogurt contains protein and Greek yogurt contains double the amount of protein that regular yogurt does! I use Greek yogurt because its protein content helps my skin and keeps me full. I enjoy adding dark chocolate chips, agave nectar walnuts and oats to my parfaits.
