Can you think of something more refreshing than a melon salad in a hot summer day? The sweetness, citrus and saltiness from this combination makes this dish very satisfying. I choose  Bulgarian Feta over Greek because of the law content of sodium. But again its a matter of choice. This is a great way to have your kids eat their veggies, building a salad skewer pattern can be a lot of fun, not to mention it makes a great presentation for your guests. Other ingredients can be added like, cucumbers, red onions, bell peppers, etc.

This salad was offered in one of our recent cooking classes.  It was a hit to say the least!  The recipe was inspired from one of my favorite chefs Caroline Randall, she wrote Soul Food with Love. 

The simplicity and combination of flavors are a perfect match.  This is a great salad to make during a hot summer day.  My husband and I had a similar salad in Santorini Greece last summer after a hot day at the beach.  This recipe is very versatile, it can be served with any kind of food, as it will clean your palate for the next dish!

This mix of greens and superfoods can become part of a wrap a side or a meal on its own. You can top it with baked pieces of tofu, fish or chicken breast. Make it for dinner, take it to the office or a picnic and you will be replenishing your body with REAL foods that will give you nutrients and energy. Note: We like to keep the tomatoes, cucumber and feta on the side until the time of service so our greens stay crunchy. Did you know that  in March we  celebrate the National Colon Cancer Awareness month? Yep! That's right, the Colon is such an important part of our digestive system, part of its job is to move out the residue of  our body(by this I mean the stuff that our body does not need). Keeping the Colon working at its full potential also aids in preventing Colorectal cancer which is seen more and more in industrialized countries like the USA. When the Colon cannot "pass" the garbage out, it can irritate the cells that cover its inside lining, when this happens, the possibility of damaging these cells and creating a toxic buildup can lead to dangerous polyps. Over time, some colon polyps can develop into colon cancer, which is often fatal when found in its later stages. The good news? By adding more fiber, water, Vitamin A & D (from real foods) and healthy bacteria we can help to keep it healthy. The following recipe has all of the "good stuff" to keep your Colon going so go ahead and share it with your family and friends.  At the Real Food Academy, we love to keep our community healthy! Kale is here to stay. A "wild" member of the cabbage family, this rough green can be cooked or made into salads such as the classic Caesar Salad created by August Escoffier for his friend Caesar Ritz. Kale is high in fiber (which helps digestion), full of phytonutrients which help detoxify our bodies and has a wide array of vitamins and minerals that are beneficial for the whole family. Make sure you "massage" the dressing on to the Kale so it really absorbs the flavor of the dressing. Serve it with grilled Portobellos, tofu or add it to a wrap for a twist! Perfect for Valentine's Day Dinner! This grilled romaine lettuce tossed with roasted beets, berries, pistachios and homemade dressing is easy to make, can be  prepared ahead of time and is full of antioxidants and healthy fats. If you don't have a grill, you can always broil the lettuce(only for 1 or 2 minutes). Turn this salad into an entree by serving it with shrimp or grilled fish! Kids and adults love this salad! You can use it as a side dish or add it to a wrap.
