Detox Roasted Delicata Squash, Pardina Lentil, and Kale Salad with Maple-Pear Balsamic Vinaigrette {Vegan} 1

Happy New Year, dear Readers! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and took the opportunity to nourish your body and also indulge when you wanted to (life is too short not to enjoy it, am I right?).

I’m guessing you’re probably all sugared out and perhaps a bit tired of eating such rich foods…and hopefully ready for some veggie-laden lighter dishes! Let’s start with this salad, which is a full meal in itself.

Foul Mudammas 1

Each year, Ramadan comes about 11 days earlier than it did the previous year because it’s based on the lunar calendar. The good news is, this rotation around the calendar year makes it more fair (so to speak) in terms of the length of day because that’s what determines how long is spent fasting (Muslims fast from dawn to sunset during Ramadan). Meaning, if Ramadan were on a set date, for example, on June 21, people fasting in the Northern Hemisphere would always have to fast a much longer day than those fasting in the Southern Hemisphere (or vice versa if Ramadan were on December […]...
