Recently I’ve been working with a local restaurant, The Bluewater Grill, helping them add healthier options to their menu! Kinda doesn’t feel like work since I get to taste new foods and come up with tasty new recipes… and it’s a fish restaurant which is my fav…

Edamame hummus is a recipe I thought would be fun and different.  Not only does it taste good, it is high in omega-3’s, antioxidants and fiber. It pairs well with raw veggies and as a spread for sandwiches.
