Sweet Potato “Cookies”

January 5, 2017 No comments yet

After the influx of not so healthy holiday cookies, we needed a healthier grab and go option! The concept and shape of a cookie is just so convenient for little hands…no muffin papers to peel, fits easily in their hands and mouth, plus is often less crumbly than a muffin can be. My criteria for […]

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 […]

Sugar Smart Recipes!

Fuel up First! Choco-PB-Banana Smoothie Seriously, three of my favorite things,  blended into one delicious glass. The combo of fibre (banana) and protein (milk & pb) keep us full and satisfied! The chocolate milk (sugar reduced version by DairyOh!) makes us feel like we are having a treat! Not to mention has some extra goodness […]

This Halloween…Be Sugar Smart!

October 30, 2013 No comments yet

It’s here…the holiday that starts the sugar rush and leads us (it seems) right through into the New Year! Now, I’m all for moderation and certainly do enjoy the occasional treat…but some of the Halloween treats that exist just seem plain ol’wrong. Electric green in color, stain your teeth black, rolled in sugar, stick to […]

A few of my favorite things!

October 9, 2013 No comments yet

Just thought I’d share a few things I have extra love for right now! - Mel’s Kitchen Cafe! I’m pretty sure I am slowly eating my way through her website. Seriously…great inspiration, recipes and “Do it yourself” guidelines! – This chocolate milk! I have a chocolate tooth at the best of times and not only is […]

After a morning at Noggin’s Farm, it was time to find some new apple recipes! Apple Salsa 2 cups apples, diced and peeled (peeled is optional) 1 red […]
