Last week I finally had some spare moments to do one of my favourite things, spend a little down time browsing through my favourite food photo sites- yummy! Occasionally I’ve been lucky enough to have my photos chosen by them but I think just by the skin of my teeth, lol. Looking at the gorgeous food pics on these sites really motivates me to try new things and get more creative with my photography. Now, if my camera would just do what I tell it to do!
So last week’s browsing led to an amazing discovery – McKel from Nutrition Stripped. I found her beautiful site on Food Gawker so I wasn’t really wasting time and drooling – I was doing research for my readers! McKel is a registered Dietitian and Health & Wellness coach who approaches nutrition from a whole-food outlook. I love that she is all about delivering the right information and providing the truth about what is right for a healthy body. McKel is passionate about ‘Integrative and Functional Medicine nutrition research, sports nutrition, lifestyles from vegan/vegetarian to paleo, digestion efficiency, and food allergies/sensitivities’ – just to name a few.
Great photography is another one of McKel`s skills and this dish really caught my eye – and my appetite. In this Spring Veggie Tacos with Avocado Cream dish, she has created a healthy, plant-based dish that will please everyone – even the hungry carnivores!
I am so excited about the avocado cream. What a great addition to these healthy tacos and you just know that the flavours are out of this world.
You must visit this site because not only will you find great recipes but important information on nutrition as well. I know that I will be a regular visitor as I move towards a completely plant based diet. McKel is all about making ‘healthy eating deliciously simple’ – one of the most critical decisions you make every day, right?
Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful site and scrumptious recipes with us, McKel!

How`s extensive is your vocabulary?. For years now I have been getting an email each day from Webster`s Dictionary with a new word. Initially, I would open this each morning with excitement but I will confess in the last few years, I trash it more often than read it. Here is another reminder that a good vocabulary is a great thing to possess. The website lists Important Infrequently Used Words to Know. I really enjoyed going through this list although it was a bit disconcerting to discover how many I didn`t know! I`d love to hear what you think.
Found on StumbleUpon
Are they any words to describe this? Charming? Adorable? Delightful? Not even close.
Here`s a place called Jacob`s Well in Wimberley, Texas. It is a perennial spring that flows from a deep underwater cave – looks a little scary from up here but I`m guessing this is a whole lot of fun for both kids and adults alike!

Have you ever heard of the book, Tippi of Africa? It`s about a young girl growing up with her French photographer parents in Africa and her adventures with animals. I tried to buy this book last Christmas for my nephew but it`s impossible to get a copy and there is no word on when it will be reprinted. Some rare bookstores wanted up to $600 for it. At that price, I think I can find the patience to wait for the next printing!
In the meantime, here is one of the many sites you can visit to learn more about Tippi and see some beautiful photos. She is grown now and living and married in France. An amazing story.
That’s it for today, everyone. I hope your week is off to a great start. Cheers!
