Shaved Zucchini Salad with Parmesan Pine Nuts

We are loving zucchini or summer squash right now.  Grill it, chop it, or spiral-ize it, any way is good for us.  However, we are using our spiralizer for everything right now and it’s a great way to enjoy zucchini.  This side salad is easy, healthy, and yummy!  The zucchini in this salad paired […]

Pineapple, Tomato, Chicken Kabobs

Is there anything easier than grilling chicken kabobs?  All you have to do in this recipe is slice some pineapple, onion, chicken and tomatoes, marinate, and grill.  Place on top of cauliflower rice or serve with a simple side salad.  But, really try to marinate the chicken for a good amount of time (2 […]

July Beer of the Month

Summer time is Farmhouse Ale time!  This month’s Thrive beer comes from Kansas City, MO from Boulevard Brewing Co.  Their Belgian-style Farmhouse Ale (also can be called a Saison) is a perfect beer for this time of year.  The combo of citrus, pepper, and a fun little sweetness make it an extremely enjoyable and […]

Cucumber, Tomato, and Feta Salad

With the hot summer days and warm evenings upon us, cool off with this easy summer salad.  All you have to do is chop, mix, and serve, although we do suggest that you add the feta right before serving to avoid a soupy salad.  Tomatoes and cucumbers are in the heart of their season […]

Gluten-Free Crab Cakes

There is something about this time of year and crab cakes.  We love the warm, delicious comfort these nutritious foods bring us.  However, since many recipes use flour which can sometimes have adverse effects on our digestive system, the gluten-free recipes are our choice for the combination of health and taste.  We have found […]

July Beer of the Month

This beer of the month comes from Newport, Oregon.  Sorry San Diego, we have to drift away from the local once in awhile.  Rogue Brewery has been around for awhile and their Dead Guy Ale is a solid German Maibock.  If you have Thai or Korean spicy food, chicken on the grill, or Emmenthal […]
