6 foods to eat instead of a multivitamin – I just had this discussion with my friend Silke that multivitamins and other supplements should not really be taken unless you have a diagnosed deficiency. Eat healthy instead.
My new blog friend Tara wrote about lessons learned from dancing and she’s so spot on.

I need a grill ASAP and make these steak kebobs with chimichurri.
