Millet Has Stolen the Show!

 By Robyn Johnson of Baby Kale Health www.babykalehealth.com

Last weekend I provided the food for Taspens Organics’ 1st Saturday Wellness Fair. This time the menu included:

  • Cauliflower and Rutabaga Soup with garlic & Rosemary
  • Lemon-Basil Marinated Veggies
  • Tuna-less Tuna Salad (Vegan Tuna Salad)

And, last but certainly not least, A Tropical Millet Salad. The Millet salad stole the show. Everyone loved it, and I even saw many people put the millet salad with their soup!

Side note: If you’re ever free on the 1st Saturday of the month, head to Taspens for an awesome day of self-care, connection and joy.

Back to the salad…My food obsession for last week was roasted pineapple. I used it in the breakfast bake recipe that I shared last week, I used it in the tropical salad for Taspens, and I used it on a veggie packed sandwich. It adds such a powerful punch of sweetness and meaty texture. Plus, it goes really great with sriracha!!

Pineapple benefits include:

  • Contain BROMELAIN! which suppresses coughs and loosens mucus, but is also great for inflammation.
  • Tons of Vitamin C
  • Contain Manganese which build healthy bones and connective tissue
  • Anti-inflammatory properties alleviates the pain of arthritis, and improves carpal tunnel and gout
  • Prevents Macular Degeneration with awesome amounts of beta carotene

I promised the Taspens family that I would share the recipe from the wellness fair in this week’s newsletter. This one is a Robyn Original and you know what that means – no exact measurements here. You’re just going to have to put your big girl/boy boots on and use your heart, soul and palate to guide you, but I promise it’ll be well worth it!
