I'm not really a juicer. I'd much rather eat my food. I enjoy the whole chewing process. But I finished my antibiotic and my strep throat is still there so I figured a vitamin boost couldn't hurt. This Green Goddess Smoothie has some Greek Yogurt, and the cinnamon, apple & banana make it taste a little like a pie (although a green juice is never going to taste like pie). The recipe is on my site. Bottoms up xxx Chef MM @vitamix

CAPRESE & AVO SALAD WITH A TWIST🍅🍃🍅🍃 I cannot believe in just 6 weeks I head off to Italy for the entire summer. I am so stoked. So in anticipation I've tweaked the classic Caprese. It meets a Greek salad and I’ve added lots and lots of avocados. I mean who doesn’t love a salad with tons of avos? And the salty Kalamata olives with baby mozzarella balls and creamy pesto are simply insane. BRAVO 🇮🇹 The full recipe is on my website.

ROASTED CAULIFLOWER FENNEL & BEETS My go to weeknight side is roasted veggies. And today I just rummaged through the refrigerator draw to see what I had. This is the end result. It’s an amazing combo of roasted beets, fennel, onion and cauliflower. I've spiced it with turmeric and the fennel seeds just add a brilliant fresh note. I'm serving it as a room temperature so I’ve topped it with toasted pine nuts and fresh mint. But you can also serve them warm out of the oven alongside your main.

TROPICAL ISLAND CHICKEN KEBABS I love adding fruit to my chicken dishes. Peaches, figs, dates, apricots. They add an element of sweetness. For these kebabs, I took my inspiration from the Island of Hawaii. I’ve added pineapple and a variety of colored peppers to make them look rainbow bright. The skewers are perfect for that weekend braai but double or triple the recipe if you are having a lot of people over. The full recipe is on my site site.

Litchis... They bring back such amazing childhood memories. When I was a kid my mom would buy HUGE boxes of them and we'd devour them in one sitting. They are not that easy to find in America but I know it's summer when these beauties are on the shelf. The only way to enjoy them is to get messy. Let the juice squeeze everywhere and get your hands and face all super sticky. Yum.
