Cooling off with a Brussel Sprouts, Blueberry, Avocado Salad

On yet another super hot day, I finished a workout and wanted a cool, healthy lunch.  A cold soup or a salad seemed like the perfect idea and thankfully I had some super powerful ingredients in the fridge.  Out came the brussel sprouts, blueberries and avocados to create the perfect chilled salad with a middle eastern flair.

Not only was this an easy salad to assemble, it also hit all the right notes of spice, sweet and tart rolled into one.

Stockholm By Day and By Night – A Stunning City In Pictures

These pictures were taken in the Summer over the course of two days in Stockholm.  Stockholm is just an amazingly beautiful, walkable city.  The color of the sky, the buildings, the streets all provided for so much visual interest and richness.  You can read more about doing Stockholm by day and night in our blog posts on this topic.
