“Me Time” is rare for me these days. It seems like life just keeps getting busier and busier. I’m starting to realize that I NEED to make myself take breaks. Just to stop, breathe and relax.

When I do take a break from my work, parenting and household responsibilities I enjoy curling up on the cozy couch with a cup of coffee and a couple of my favorite magazines.

I picked up my Real Simple® and Sunset® Magazines at my local Safeway. They were perfect for a relaxing rainy afternoon.

It is always during these relaxing sessions that I also decide that I need to get back on track with my healthy eating. {ahem, especially after all of that holiday fudge!}

Real Simple® magazine had a feature about grapefruit. I love grapefruit but often forget to use it in recipes. That inspired me to make this Homemade Grapefruit Vinaigrette . . . and it is AWESOME! I made a super healthy and satisfying salad with shrimp, quinoa, avocado, micro greens and tomatoes.
