Mediterranean Buckwheat Salad
Place buckwheat into a medium sized pot and cover with water (so its about 1/2 inch over the buckwheat in the bottom of the pan - about a cup and a half). Cook until buckwheat is soft and fluffy, then set aside to cool. Once buckwheat has cooled, add in sliced tomatoes, cilantro, mint, salt and pepper, olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, white wine vinegar. Mix throughly and taste for seasoning. Once this is complete add in feta cheese and stir-thoroughly so it is crumbled and mixed into buckwheat salad.

After a trip to the farmers market, I came home with a bounty of fresh veggies and fruits, that promptly filled our fridge. Solution: Beggar's Purse. I have to say this was one of the most delicious dishes I have ever created and for 10 points plus per purse its a lovely splurge that wont take you away from your weight loss goals!


Salpic├│n Summer Cocktail
A delish Colombian non-alcoholic, summer beverage that you serve with a spoon! I made some for a hot summer afternoon, and it was thirst quenching. Low in points plus and a huge hit!

Featured on Grilled Chicken Lettuce Wraps
I had a craving for something messy and refreshing on a hot summer day. Solution Lettuce wraps! A few minor tweaks to an old recipe and we had a healthy fast alternative to an asian inspired favorite. This recipe is quick, great for a week night and it gave us a few left overs for lunch the next day.
