Healthy Low-Calorie Spring Rolls

I love taking spring rolls to potlucks or serving them at gallery receptions. They are as healthy as the ingredients you roll up inside the rice paper wrappers. They require no cooking (unless you opt for a cooked filling such as steamed spinach, grilled asparagus — or my favorite — shredded chicken breast marinated in a soy-sesame-ginger dressing.) Once you get used to rolling these, they really truly are a super easy appetizer, lunch or side dish. Try these and let me know what you think!

Hover/Suspend by Cheryl Fortier

Today is World Environment Day, and this year’s theme is Think-Eat-Save all about reducing the enormous amount of food we waste. My post has lots of links to resources to cut food waste and save money. Also, In honor of UN WED, my sister, MaryBeth Shaughnessy has a painting up for auction in her business, ArtBomb. The painting is stunningly beautiful — evocative of the connection between species, of our dependence on water, the oceans, nature … please share this link to spread the word about this ONE DAY art auction. You could be the lucky winner of this original painting by the end of today.
