I Heart the Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean diet is an eating style originally identified with cultures bordering the, you guessed it, Mediterranean Sea. Time and time again, the Mediterranean diet has proven to be a healthy, effective diet for many reasons but, first and foremost, because it is based on fresh, whole ingredients.

Ideas for a Valentine’s Day Dinner at Home

Fondue

Chocolate Fondue is an easy and fun Valentine's Day dessert.

Looking to avoid cramped restaurants, predictable menus, and make this Valentine’s Day a truly memorable event? Then you’ll have to create a special meal with stellar ambiance at home. Fortunately, that’s easy.

For starters, you’ll have to set the mood. Dim the lights or replace your bulbs with lower wattage. You can also simply light some candles. A strategically-placed strand of holiday lights can also create a whimsical feel to any room.

Next, you’ll need to make your usual dining spot look like a romantic nook. Ever consider moving your table to a different part of your living room or apartment? Even turning the table to a slight angle can create a whole new look. Then find a solid color table cloth to give your placemat-friendly eating spot a facelift. If you have a lace tablecloth or runner, place it over your solid table cloth for an extra special touch. A few freshly cut flowers can instantly complete a look.

Now – the food. This is where it gets tricky, right? Wrong. Whether it’s a full meal or simply tantalizing dessert, we’ve got you covered….

Would you leave your office job for a life working on a farm? Two years ago, that’s exactly what Marlin Weaver did and it changed his life.

For him, the change meant he could happily work together with his family everyday raising chickens that he felt were the best quality for his family (and yours!).
