I’d actually never had arugula (aka rocket) until recently. Most grocery stores around here don’t carry it, but I happened upon a bunch at a local food co-op and knew I had to try a simple, fruity salad to complement its strong green flavor. You can use dried cranberries instead of pomegranate seeds if you prefer!
Keep your household clean, too!
I may make my living as a food blogger, but my health-consciousness actually began long before I started cooking. Growing up with a sensitive nose and skin that would break out into a rash at the slightest provocation, I’ve been making my own cosmetics and cleaning products since high school. I hoped that avoiding these environmental toxins would not only improve my health, but be better for the environment and save me some money compared to buying high-end non-toxic products at a health-foods store. Whatever your reasons, making your own household products is easier than you might think. My e-book A Clean Space has all the tips, tricks, and recipes you need to get started–and it’s only $6.99!
