There are many people who have greatly affected my journey into healthy living; some of them I have never met like the founders of this amazing co-op and the other leaders in Bountiful Baskets. Some of them were people whose time in my life was only momentarily, but whose impact I will feel for a lifetime…. Others have had a more regular influence in my life, teaching me on a daily basis, but there has only been one person who has inspired me quite like my best friend has. She has helped inspire me to start this journey and her support has helped me continue it on a daily basis. The love for healthy living runs deep in her family and the best thing about this amazing family; they share their love for it by teaching people to better their lives and live healthier everyday. If I could aspire to be like anyone in the kitchen it would be her….I am seriously in awe of her cooking skills! She made this bean salad and told me the name “Cowboy Caviar.” I had never heard of it, but I knew I liked the taste, the recipe comes in many variations, you can add or remove ingredients to your liking! Marisa cooks like me, she puts her heart and soul into cooking and the result is usually a work of art. If you are lucky enough to have tasted her food, you know what I’m talking about! This isn’t a “Marisa” original, but even though it’s not an original, it will do. We had these ingredients in the organic basket so I made it for dinner and got to talk about my best friend….Can’t go wrong with that!
Hope y’all like it!!!
