White Bean Alfredo Sauce

December 13, 2016 No comments yet

I have been feeling less than inspired lately with our family meals. Between work, two kids and the Holiday season upon us, our meal rotation was just that…a rotation! Totally not a bad thing, but was leaving this foodie dietitian mom, uninspired.  Keeping things simple is a fabulous way to make healthier choices work, while […]

New Cookbook Alert!

August 12, 2016 No comments yet

I love me a new cookbook! Add to that it’s written by a fellow Dietitian AND a friend AND we share a name…pretty spectacular combination if I do say so myself! Enter “World Food for Student Cooks: Healthy, delicious, easy-to-make dishes for the food-truck-loving, noodle-slurping, taco-crunching, mac-n-cheese-loving student.” This cookbook is full of healthy, tasty […]

Let’s talk food. Not nutrition…but food.  The impact of food, the social aspects of food, the relationships and ways we celebrate using food, the bonding and sharing of stories over food…you get my point!?

The first trimester…

October 5, 2012 1 comment

Typically, I have kept this blog fairly “professional.” In the sense that I generally write about specific nutrition topics, resources, recipes, etc. I’m going to take a slight break from this in the next few posts, as people have been asking how I managed nutrition/exercise throughout my pregnancy! As a disclaimer, please remember that everyone […]
