    What are you thoughts on Acai bowls?

    Hi Elena
    Can you recommend a good quality olive oil.

    I would appreciate a recipe for pastichio. I read your story about eating this and thought I want to try this. We have been working on eating healthier and this site has been the most helpful. My dear husband even volunteered to make the Spinach Casserole with Feta for dinner tomorrow. I have been altering my favorite foods such as grits and fried egg. I fry my egg in olive oil then pour the fried egg and olive oil onto my grits. It is so good and keeps me out of the margarine. I have used olive oil to make my grilled cheese by brushing it on the bread. The bread toast perfectly. Thank You for this wonderful site. I recommend it all my friends.

      Thanks for sharing your diet swaps. Yes, the patsichio is definitely on my list, especially as it is one of my mother’s most popular recipes! I’ll be putting the recipe here soon!
