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 […]

By popular request, I’m reposting my recipe for “cookie dough hummus!” A great snack option–packed with chickpea fibre and protein, plus just a touch of sweet! Serve with sliced apples! Yum! Ingredients: –          1.5cups chickpeas, drained (1 can) –          Pinch of salt (optional) –          2tsp vanilla –          ¼ cup peanut butter (or other nut butters) […]

Cookie Dough Hummus

November 21, 2011 1 comment

There seems to be a theme lately….cookie dough treats! Healthier cookie dough treats that is! Traditional hummus dips are heavy on the garlic; however, this “dessert” hummus omits the garlic and instead, adds nut butter and a few chocolate chips! Serve at your next party and I can guarantee a few surprised quests will be […]
