FullSizeRender-3

Happy Halloween! Hope you have a safe and sugar filled holiday, and a glass or two of these sweet & spicy apple cider margaritas.

Just because the mercury is dropping and the leaves are changing doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite summer drink. This autumn twist on the classic margarita blends spicy jalapeno tequila with tart apple cider and tangy lime for an unexpectedly delicious combination.

Tomato, Mango & Avocado Salad {vegan}

St. Bart’s cuisine draws inspiration from French cuisine, but also incorporates flavors from West Indian cuisine, Italian cuisine, and Asian cuisine. This recipe celebrates the simplicity and freshness of St. Bart’s cuisine, using only a handful of ingredients and highlighting their best qualities. This delicious produce also offers an array of health benefits. Tomatoes, full of lycopene, help bolster the eyes and skin, and can lower blood pressure and cholesterol and protect the heart. Mangos have enzymes that protect against cancers, and also lower cholesterol and help alkalize the body’s pH. Avocado is loaded with heart- and skin-healthy monounsaturated fats, which help your body absorb the vitamins in the tomatoes and mango.  This simple salad packs a big health and flavor punch- you don’t want to miss it!
