Recipe by KalaLea K

Serves 4 growing grandparents-to-be

If asked what food we need a lot more of, I would say GREENS!!! We should be eating them every single day.

Fresh berries are miracle workers. I could write for days, okay, maybe hours, about the many ways berries can prevent a slew of ailments such as dementia, poor vision, skin rashes, and arthritis.

And if you have issue with the seeds

With the excitement of my first WDIET : Wow! workshop, I failed to take photos of the food before the participants devoured these yummy, vegan treats but we managed to take one shot before packing up.

Recipe by KalaLea K

Serves 4 gracious guacamole eaters

And I loved seeing the school children on tours react to the info shared about each beautiful creature. Learned so much! #southafrica #capetown #fish #aquarium #nemo #snorkeling #scubadiving

  • My tastebuds were seduced last night at an African restaurant along the Cape Town waterfront called Gold. After a 14 course meal, my belly cried, PLEASE NO MORE! From the first course, Zanzibar soup to the final dessert, Moroccan orange and walnut served with sweet orange and ground spice sauce, every dish was delish. The photos don't do the experience justice. Give thanks! #africa #southafrica #capetown #goldrestaurant #touristy #
