Pear, Walnut, and Maple Kale Butternut Squash "Rice"

I made you rice.... out of butternut squash! I know it sounds weird, but it has an amazing texture and a very mild flavor that is perfect for fall.  You start by spiralizing the butternut squash into long thin spirals.

Juicing Through the Rainbow: {Super Green Juice}

Way back when (almost a year ago to the day, to be exact) I decided that I needed to create more balance in my life and I did that by cutting back my blogging schedule to once a week.
