Sorry, we haven't posted anything new in a while but don't worry we're back! After a great weekend of hiking in Malibu at our senior retreat, I was ready for a hearty meal that would leave me feeling balanced and centered. I went to Gelson's and made a huge salad at their salad bar and made some organic short grain brown rice. I topped my salad with some raw almonds, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. For the brown rice, I sprinkled some olive oil, salt and pepper on top.
