Hi everyone – it’s Tuesday Tidbits time! I missed last week’s Tidbits and I don’t have a good excuse – I just ran out of time! Things have been very busy lately and I’m excited to be creating new Easter dishes for you that I will begin publishing on Friday. There are 7 dishes in all and they are full of fresh Spring produce and fresh herbs – my favorite! That means that Tidbits will take a back seat till the end of March but then it will be back with a bang!
Today I want to introduce you to the amazing recipes of my latest discovery, Tessa, from Natural Comfort Kitchen. She began her career as a certified public accountant before delving into the world of food and nutrition full time. I’m very glad she did because when I came across her blog I was so impressed with her super healthy dishes that I knew you had to meet her!
Tessa is a super busy blogger who loves photography, travelling, hosting brunch and dinner parties and practising yoga. She shares menu ideas for every occasion and I can hardly wait to explore those further!
Let’s check out her gorgeous recipes. First up is Spiced Eggplant Lentil Stew. This is chock full of goodness with veggies, fresh herbs topped with harissa, pesto and tzatziki.
Mexican seasonings of cumin and oregano flavor a creamy, tangy base for the chicken, scallion, and corn filling in this next dish. One of my favourite things to do is to make comfort food nutritious and Tessa has created healthy deliciousness with this one!
Pop on over to Natural Comfort Kitchen and fill your recipe box with lots of fresh, healthy recipes. Tessa has a great ability to create dishes that are both gorgeous and goodness! Thanks so much for sharing with us today, Tessa.
Today’s tidbits are totally random so we’re popping all over the place. First off, I wanted to recommend one of my favourite places. I get an email from The Daily Quipple each morning that starts my day off right. You may have seen Traci’s comments here and if you’re a regular reader, you seen this site featured before. I just love her positive attitude and her drawings and sayings make me think and make me smile. Pop on over and subscribe if you want your mornings brightened. Thanks, Traci!
Mindy from A Dandelion Diary is another reader who is kind enough to comment each week and she has written a great post titled, ‘In Living Color’. She’s written about a subject that I’m very passionate about and I won’t spoil it here – if you do nothing else today, please go read this. It’s written beautifully and honestly – which are also words that I would use to describe it’s author.
I’ve been reading a lot about the advantages of including coconut oil in your diet and I’m convinced that it can make a significant difference if you’re struggling with certain illnesses or obesity. Authority Nutrition has a list of 10 Proven Health Benefits that’s worth reading. Do you know that there are also breakthrough studies being done with coconut oil and Alzheimer’s Disease? If you want more information, shoot me an email and I’ll be happy to forward some helpful websites.

I am fascinated with this innovative house designed for the desert. I can’t decide whether I would love living here or go absolutely mad! It’s so freshly modern but I think the lack of direct sunlight would be hard to take. What do you think? Love It or Leave It?
