A note about serious food allergies

During the cold winter months, there's nothing better than a meal that takes you to tropical paradise. This meal puts you on the beach without getting your feet sandy. There's light, tender mahi-mahi topped with macadamia and coconut. There's a sweet pineapple and rice bed for that fabulous fish to lay on. And there's some healthy bok choy to round everything out. There's also you adding this to your basket, turning a normal dinner into a five-star beach living experience. Tip: Bok choy can retain some grit, even after washing. To completely clean, hold upside down in a bowl of water. Shake slightly to release the grit.
