Kale Salad with Honey Pomegranate Dressing ~ Something happens just before Halloween and continues until the New Year –– the calendar begins to fill up and the sugary treats seem to come out of nowhere. Many times you find yourself asking, “where did this comes from?” while looking down at your butter-soaked hand holding a fritter that you are about to consume. Between the holiday office parties, the school festivities, late night fun, and just getting together with friends –– food and drinks are always at the helm of it all. This Kale Salad with Honey Pomegranate Dressing is not just another pretty salad, this one is loaded with flavor and nutrition so you can get back on track after all of those good times that rolled you through the holiday season. 

Kale –– this super green leafy cancer fighter is loaded with vitamins K, A & C, fiber, and has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

10 Delicious Thanksgiving Side Dishes | LocalSavour.com

10 Delicious Thanksgiving Side Dishes ~ It’s time to get ready for the most delicious season of the year … the holidays! Put on your stretchy pants and gather around the table with family and friends and let the feasting begin. My mom has taught me to never show up at someone’s house empty handed –– whether that means bringing a simple bottle of wine, showing up with a special gift, or bringing over something to add to the dinner table –– that was just how it was done. Nine times out of ten, I now tend to bring one of each of those things and Thanksgiving is certainly no exception. I have put together a list of flavor-packed dishes that I have been known to show-up with during this season. This includes everything from an easy salad to a hot and spicy dip to a delectable sweet treat. Grab a bottle of wine (or two!) and head over to your food fest with one (or three –– mom knows best!) of these dishes and let the eating begin.
