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 […]

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 […]

It’s here…the holiday that starts the sugar rush and leads us (it seems) right through into the New Year!

Electric green in color, stain your teeth black, rolled in sugar, stick to […]

Nutrition Month- Challenge #3!!!

March 18, 2013 No comments yet

It’s SNACK time!!! What is your favorite snack combination? Snacks should include two food groups!  Fibre + Protein = Fullness! Choose sources of each at your snacks- hardboiled egg/veggies, 10-12 almonds/fruit, fruit/Greek yogurt, veggies/hummus.  Skip the fat-free! Fat tastes good, so often the “fat-free” products have higher levels of sugar and/or salt. Choose 1% sodium reduced […]

Summer Heat = Hydration! Homemade Iced Tea!

July 6, 2011 No comments yet

Summer heat is here…finally! With that comes the need for extra hydration! While water is our best option, decaffeinated teas, coffee, 100% juice or low-fat milk are also good options. Buyer beware- most commercially produced drinks are pumped full of sugar, chemicals (i.e. colors) and more! The solution is simple…brew your own! Homemade Iced Tea […]
