.::New to the Blogging World::.

So after months of being obsessed with reading tons of blogs, I've finally caved in and created my own. I keep thinking to myself.....who in the world would actually care to read it? And yet somehow I've gotten you interested enough that you are here and reading this...right? :) Well, welcome to my blog full of silly, fun, nonsense.  I plan to share crazy stories of my life along with lots of dancing and nutrition-related "stuff". I hope you enjoy!

Let me start by telling you how much fun I've had finding new recipes this summer for all of my summer garden veggies! ...and yes, i know this makes me sound like a typical, boring dietitian...but I want to introduce you to one of my favorites....Veggie Couscous. (Don't be nervous!) Do you have lots of squash, zucchini and bell peppers from your garden? Give this recipe a try. It's fresh--summery--light and I promise you will love it!

Veggie Couscous
Adapted from Healthy Family Meals

3/4 cup uncooked couscous
1/2 cup frozen green peas
1 cup vegetable broth
1 zucchini, chopped
1 yellow squash, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
Cilantro bunch, chopped
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

1. Cook the couscous according to the directions, using vegetable broth and adding the frozen peas. Set aside.
2. Sautee the zucchini, squash and bell pepper with a little olive oil until tender but still slightly crunchy. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Add the couscous and vegetables. Squirt lime juice and add cilantro. Serve warm or cold. 

Thanks to Kaylie who gave me this's also on her blog (Skinny Muffin) ...and i stole these pictures from her!......eventually, I'll start taking my own....

Lots of Love, Katie
