You guyses. Summer is soooo close, and while normally that means a break from teaching, for me this summer is looking a little different. After 11 years of teaching, I have decided to take a leap into the world of Wellness, Nutrition and Cooking.

Used to put it on my grilled cheese for my after school snack as a kid. Weird? Maybe, but soooooo good. Continue reading Crispy buffalo cauliflower salad (vegan, grain-free)
