The Best Lean Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

I know I’ve been harping about the weather in Virginia in the last couple of posts, but it really is bipolar. Just when you think it has decided that it will stay spring, a cold blast blows through.

Salmon Burgers with Basil Butter

I’m always  looking for more ways to incorporate fish into my diet.  These days, our diet is saturated with fats, large amounts of sugar and even more sodium.  But salmon is one super food often overlooked.  Packed with essential nutrients such as vitamins B12 and B3, over 80% of your daily intake of omega-3 fatty acids, salmon is one of the best additions one can make to a diet if looking to shed stored fat and gain lean muscle. This dish is a tasty and fun way to incorporate all of those benefits into one amazingly flavored dish.
