Happy Friday, Sisterhood! And might I add it’s Friday the 13th. Are you supersticious today?

I have a few great things to share with you on this 13th day of January. Wow, I can’t believe we’re already almost 2 weeks into the year!

Speaking of challenges, we’re working on a little project over on the ‘hood called 52 Small Changes.

We are making one small change each week, and never fear, they are easy changes, small changes….

Some of the Healthiest Food Trends of 2012

  1. Dessert Vegetables! What? Think zucchini muffins and parsnip cakes. Yes! The trend this year is to get creative with those veggies!
  2. Breakfast for Dinner! While this isn’t new to me, there are some creative new ways to do it. Think waffles topped with eggs and bacon. It can be healthy when you control the ingredients at home.
  3. Flexitarians – Yeah, I was confused when I saw that word, too. ‘Almost vegetarianism’ is on the rise. Lots of people are eating more of a vegetarian diet and indulging in meat only occasionally.
  4. Gluten-Free Restaurants – In a salute to the extimated 6% of gluten intolerant among our population, entire gluten-free restaurants are popping up all over the place. In 2010-2011 menu items promoted as gluten-free rose by 61%.
  5. Trees for Dinner? It’s true. Pine needles contain 6x more vitamin C than lemons and eucalyptus is great for warding off cold. Chefs are starting to use these “leafy greens” to flavor meats, to infuse in vinegars and butters, and even pureed into soups. Yum ? !


I couldn’t NOT share this with you. You will laugh, you will shake your head, you will roll your eyes, and you will say WTF? Enjoy!
