Almond Cranberry Scones


Enjoy a quick breakfast treat with these low-carb scones.  Have one with a smoothie and you won't be hungry until lunch!

I like to make these with dried cranberries, ground flaxseed and some chopped walnuts, but you can substitute any kind of mix-in. To increase the sweetness, you could sprinkle the tops with cinnamon sugar before baking. Or add a teaspoon of cinnamon to the dough.

Kale, Strawberry, Almond Salad with Citrus Dressing



On our trip to Los Angeles, we had dinner with my friend, Katie, and her family.  They introduced us to this kale salad and a grilled chicken recipe.  Kale can be tough, but rubbing the leaves helps to soften them. The salad can be left to marinate overnight.  This is a salad that might taste better on the second day!
