It started out as a regular lunch play date with my friend and our kids… who knew it was going to be one of the last turkey sandwiches I was going to eat for a while, if ever again?
This summer, I am looking for a sports camp for my five year-old to attend for one week. Between moving, vacations, and days at the pool, we have lots to do this summer, but I think a summer camp would be so much fun for him!
I started this football season making veggie burgers for a tailgate party because I was going meatless for 30 days. I am still trying to not eat meat, so I thought I would stick with it for this Super Bowl Sunday.My friend Tiffany Russo (who also is a nutritionist who specializes in plant-based foods) helped me come up with some vegetarian and vegan recipes that still have the taste of traditional Super Bowl foods …

I love Easter – maybe because I was born on Easter Sunday. I also have great childhood memories of fun Easter egg hunts at my grandparents house with my brothers and cousins.
