Whoa it was raining in Southern California. But then it stopped several hours later, you know, once traffic was a huge mess for hours and after we served our local homeless in the pouring rain. But we were glad to be able to that. Rain or shine, people still go hungry.

Salads are usually healthy go-to meals. But we as we have learned from restaurants and fast food places fessing up to the calorie count and ingredients, we know that salads aren’t always the healthiest of options out there; the culprit being fatty dressing and processed, chemical-laden ingredients.

Bleh.

How to remedy this? Easy. Get to the store, buy some fresh ingredients and produce and make your own salad and dressing. Boom. Case closed.

Finally getting back into the swing of things after Cabo, I have attempted to feed my belly something other than chips, guac and margaritas. I needed to make something easy and healthy, since it was a little tough to wean off of the glorious Mexican food and drink, and I’m pretty sure that I am still in vacation mode.

I love lima beans. They remind me of my dad because lima beans and peas are about the only “vegetables” he will get close to. The guy wouldn’t touch kale with a 10 foot pole. I still remember eating a bowl of lima beans and spaghetti as a kid when mom was out and left dad in charge of cooking for us.
