I was so excited when Mark asked me to write a guest post today that I decided I was going to treat you all to two recipes!/p
pLet me start by saying I love breakfast, and I have no shame in admitting that I’ve eaten breakfast food for every meal of my day on more than one occasion. My go-to favorite is eggs over medium paired with bacon and avocado—but sometimes it’s fun to be a little indulgent. Sometimes you just need pancakes./p

pAs someone whose business it is to help others create change there is something magical about the New Year; it is so full of hope and motivation. It is a time to evaluate growth and direction, and to dream. Over the next month or so millions of people will share resolutions to get fitter, healthier, and more financially responsible. People will dream of the life they want and declare their desire to make the changes necessary to achieve it.

The sad part about this whole thing is that their failure is not due to lack of ability, or laziness, or unrealistic aspirations, it’s most likely due to lack […]

Salmon & Mustard Greens with Warm Vinaigrette

pThe honey mustard vinaigrette is used two ways here, as a topping for the salmon before it cooks and as a warm sauce when the dish is served (you’ll also have a little leftover to use on a salad later in the week). This slightly sweet, tangy vinaigrette will go well with any dark leafy green so it’s a great one to whip up when your CSA box is over-stuffed with kale, mustard greens, spinach or the like.
