ice pops

For the kids and the kids at heart, try this electrolyte replenishing, oxygenating ice pop post-play. I’m fairly certain it’s well known that when we engage in physical activity, we lose important electrolyte minerals through sweat and exertion.

Muhammara Red Pepper Dip with Red Beet Crystals

January 6, 2019

Mmm is for muhammara! It may even be better than hummus. Traditionally, smoky roasted red peppers—the version from Aleppo uses the region’s distintive spicy peppers—are made into a spread and their flavor is mellowed using breadcrumbs, walnuts, and pomegrate molasses.

Print Muhammara Red Pepper Dip Ingredients 1 cup walnuts 3 red bell peppers ¼ cup olive…
