I feel as if my job has taken a quick turn to being less of a dietitian and more of a healthy food trend expert! Since the Fancy Food Show at the end of June, Iโ€™ve written a few articles and chatted about food trends on 6 ABC Philadelphia, and created these trendy treats for you, too! Continue reading

Toast Toppings to Fuel Your Fitness

Toast is quick, fits in anytime of day, and is super versatile. Breakfast, snack, lunch, or dinner, sometimes it just hits the spot! With the fabulous #ToastTuesday trend I thought I’d share some of my favorite ways to enjoy it, along with when you might want to enjoy each combo. The “trend” obviously isn’t the old boring toast you’re used to. Warmed fluffy (mostly) sprouted grain bread with a slight crisp and delicious toppings may be a better description of what I’m sharing today (along with creative recipe ideas from some other dietitians and healthy food bloggers). If you’re thinking “sprouted whaaaat?”, have no idea what kind of bread to buy, or still think “carbs are bad“, check out this post on how to choose nutritious bread. And no whining if you’re gluten-free! I have a whole category for you at the bottom!

Green Garlic Pistachio Pesto

The past couple of years we have opted not to partake in a CSA share since we spend so many summer weekends traveling and visiting family. Whenever we are home though, we head to the Wrightstown Farmer’s Market since we absolutely love the super seasonal produce that might only be available for a week or two each year! It’s also great to support local farms and have food immediately after harvest.

My travel unfortunately made me miss the fiddle-head ferns and garlic scapes this year, but green garlic was a great consolation. Continue reading

Now that Cinco de Mayo is over, it’s time to focus on the next holiday! No, not Mother’s Day {though I am sure your Mom would love this recipe}. I’m talking about National Hummus Day, obviously! I make hummus very often, but it’s also such an easy ingredient to pick up at the grocery store and it is useful for so much more than dipping. Let’s celebrate it’s versatility on Hummus Day, May 13, on Mother’s Day and every day! Continue reading

Overnight Oats 4 Ways

Spring is the perfect time to finally try overnight oats! If you’re anything like me, you need your oats nice and warm in the winter and thinking of pulling cold oatmeal out of the fridge to start your day is cringe-worthy. This time of year though, it’s great to save time and have this meal on the go.

You want to know what my favorite holiday is? Easter! While I don’t ever talk about religion on here, in the Catholic Church this holiday has more meaning than Christmas. I’ve also just always loved how it makes me feel with spring in the air. Without a major focus on presents as we see at Christmas (though I do love a good Easter basket), the holiday becomes more of a time to spend with family… and eat delicious food!
