Pie makes me happy. But I do NOT like pies that require lots washing, peeling, and chopping, so I created this perfect fruit pie. As with all of my food inventions, it meets my criteria of easy, delicious, and nutritious….
Whenever I’m seated at a dinner and asked if I want gravy, I have no idea what to say. What IS gravy, exactly? What is IN it?

I consulted our Wellness Contributor, Tara Felice, and Little Mama and this is what I found out….
I think you may all remember my sauerkraut fetish and how it actually helped to cure my gastritis. If you have been watching Graye Note Live, you may also have seen me “ask” my daughter, Andrea, to try my Sauerkraut Brownies. I thought it went over well. She said she couldn’t even taste the sauerkraut! What better way to have a tasty treat for Halloween than one that is actually good for you! Come on, get a little kooky spooky and “Trick or Treat” with our Halloween Sauerkraut Brownies…

I often enjoy coffee, but sometimes I have to drink it more than I would like to and it clashes with my meals and snacks. Most food that goes well with coffee (i.e. sugar-crusted donuts) is NOT GOOD FOR YOU.

Knowing your hair type is just as important as knowing your shoe size, as far as I’m concerned. Unless you’re Kendall Jenner strutting the catwalk for Balmain, you can’t squeeze into a size 6 stiletto when you’re a size 10 and look good. You also can’t use tools and products meant for another hair type. If you do, bad hair days will be trending in your world! How do you figure out your hair type? Hair types are based on porosity, density, texture, and coarseness….
I LOVE a good farmer’s market. It feels so exciting and refreshing to wander around looking at all those delicious fruits, vegetables, and meats. But how do you narrow down what you should ACTUALLY take home with you and if it’s definitely “healthy”? I don’t know the answer to this question, so I interrogated our Wellness Contributor, Tara Felice. Here are her tips on how to make the most of your farmer’s market….
Smoothies are out there…everywhere! You can’t get away from them, so you might as well join in. However, let’s join in the “right” way! Some smoothies are infused with so much sugar, processed flavors, and absolutely NO nutrition. I prefer a smoothie that is high in protein and fiber, which can make you feel fuller, is nourishing, and has less calories. This recipe includes ginger. I LOVE ginger because of its many benefits.
