Makes 2 Servings

By Megan Roosevelt, RD, LD



1 can (15-ounces) of garbanzo beans

1 tablespoon of coconut oil

1 pinch of sea salt

1 cup of frozen diced butternut squash

1 cup of frozen sliced tri-color carrots

4 large kale leaves

1 tablespoon olive oil

½ fresh lemon

1 additional pinch of sea salt

2 tablespoons of hemp seeds


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Drain and rinse garbanzo beans and

place on a baking sheet. Add frozen butternut squash and tri-color carrots onto the

baking sheet. Drizzle with coconut oil and sea salt. Use hands if necessary to “toss” all

ingredients together to make sure the beans and veggies are evenly coated with

coconut oil. Roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Meanwhile, wash and devein kale.

Curious how to de-vein kale? Chop kale and add to a medium bowl. Drizzle with olive

oil and sea salt and massage the kale until it is evenly covered with dressing. When

beans and veggies are finished roasting, add on top of kale salad and sprinkle with

hemp seeds. Divide into two bowls and enjoy!

Nutrition Tip! Choose Organic Ingredients when possible

Love stories often start with a simple hello, a hand shake or a connected glance.

When that love story grows it creates a friendship and love that is infectious and carefree. The timeline of a boy meeting the girl of his dreams can be seen in this fun and flirtatious engagement shoot with Tyla and Rob. While exploring along the Thames in Central London, these two love birds enjoy laughs, affection and the true happiness of being together.

All because a boy met a girl and she said yes. ;)

Welcome to the corner of all corners! My corner.

What I am about to talk about today comes but once in a life time. Well unless you fall subject to the statistics and are part of the 50% of Americans…

Grooms Day! Grooms day should be a day of celebration. I mean, you are about to get married to the person you love and right before that you get to share in the experience with some of your closest friends around. Exciting right? Why don’t grooms have groom’s showers? Grooms sometimes feel like this is a huge responsibility, but as a groomsmen it’s tradition that you get a gift, get to party with your friend who is about to get married and be on stage in front of everyone…what’s not to love right?! Haha.

Check out this example of what to do with your guys while the ladies are at the bridal shower…


The afternoon started with Marcia, a cigar roller from Boston Cigar Factory, who sat with the guys and taught them how to roll cigars.  A beautiful art in a beautiful setting.  The guys followed up the cigar rolling with some cornhole and football and then headed down the bog to a whiskey tasting.  The whiskey tasting was displayed on a handmade table from True North Event Rentals and the guys made notes on their whiskey tasting cards from Dulce Press.





After enjoying the whiskey, they headed back to the main bog where a table was set in the bog for dinner.  The centerpiece of the table was created by All About Flowers for Weddings and was a creative mix of flowers and whiskey in a stack of whiskey glasses.  At the bog, the men mixed up some cranberry old fashioneds and sipped on some local Cape Cod Beer.  Friends toasted the groom, signed his football and were able to sit back, relax and puff on their new cigars.
