High Heels: Be Cute & Have Pain!

High-Heels-Be-Cute--Have-Pain

I was hanging out with a friend of mine in Atlantic Station a couple of weeks ago and was amazed at the number of women I saw walking around casually with their 4 inch spike heels.

Making a Banana Batido

Making-a-Banana-Batido

Today, we are going to make a banana batido. The origin of the batido is Cuban. It's a Cuban smoothie, or milkshake, but it's usually made a huge amount of cream and whole milk, and really fattening.

With the health risks of traditionally made sugar it’s nice to know that there are some alternatives out there that are less inflammatory and lower on the glycemic index. Here are 6 of my favorites:
