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 […]

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 […]

Saturday afternoon involved pumpkin muffins, flax cookies & a pot of minestrone soup (stay tuned for more recipes!) Not only does the afternoon of baking warm up the kitchen, the smells were delicious! These muffins […]

Now that Fall is in the air…well I suppose it’s more than just in the air…it is officially Fall! Needless to say, cooler air means my stove can return to full duty! Which means…baking! Muffins can be a not so good treat (i.e. mega-sized cake style commercial muffins) BUT they can also be a handy […]

Local markets and grocery stores are stocked with yummy, local finds! Strawberries, carrots, asparagus, beets,plums, cherries and more! (Check out this amazing seasonal availability chart for more info!)How did […]

Fish is the best source of our heart healthy Omega-3 fats! Omega-3’s are also found in flax, nuts, seeds and now fortified products such as eggs & orange juice; however, fish provides the best source & ratio of the EPA and DHA! (These are the beneficial elements of the omega-3’s.) Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown […]
