MVP Quiche + Random Kitchen Tips

Savory Spice Shop recently invited me to be their guest chef for a Back to School cooking demonstration. Whenever I do one of these, I always like to remind my audience that I am a Registered Dietitian by occupation, and self-proclaimed chef taught mostly by…the internet. Plain and simple: my cooking…

Spicy Rosemary + Maple Crunch

I often hear that baking granola is easy. But I disagree. Things that require eye-balling and provide a somewhat generous temperature range are a lot easier to me than baking…which is why baking is my favorite. It’s much more scientific and precise, and therefore, it’s a challenge. Who doesn’t love…

Baby Kale & Quinoa Bowl

Salads don’t have to suck. For a long time (well before my nutrition career), I believed that salads were a form of self-punishment. I tried to like them. I couldn’t do it. Later I learned they aren’t so bad, thanks to salad geniuses like my friends at Chop’t Salad Creative…

Easy Egg Salad

One of the biggest nutrition obstacles for most people is figuring out what to eat for lunch. When I worked at a desk full-time, I can recall several times where I just couldn’t bring myself to pack a lunch or plan meals ahead. When I didn’t have a plan, I…

Mini Coconut Macaroon Cups

Easter candy smacks you in the face every time you walk into the grocery store, so shouldn’t we create a nice place for it to live before we shovel it in by the handfuls? Call it an excuse to buy the candy, but I’m calling it arts and crafts meets…

As a dietitian, providing healthier options to my clients is the bare minimum of what I do. If it tastes like cardboard, what is the point?  Therefore, if I am offering suggestions or recipes, I am going to try them out for myself first to make sure they pass the…

Spice Up Your Nuts

Did you know that 1/4 cup of walnuts provides your daily recommended intake of plant-based omega 3s? Omega-3s are “essential” because our bodies need them, but we are unable to make them on our own…so we eat them! Think of them as the gateway drug to healthy eating and living.…

Goats

Quick backstory on the recipe name. This recipe started out as To-Go Oats. Then, a dear friend of mine started calling it To-Goats which quickly (naturally) morphed into Goats. It has nothing to do with goats, which actually makes sense because my friend who came up with the name is a…
