You’ve probably heard the phrase EAT THE RAINBOW! Not to be confused with Skittles’ “Taste the Rainbow” slogan… this is the exact opposite of eating chemical/sugar-laden candies. It’s about having a variety of natural colors in our diet, because the more color means the more phytonutrients, and the more phytonutrients, the better for our bodies!
This was a recipe I made for my ebook, the 10-Day Energy-Boosting Meal Plan. It was one of the first big things I did with my business and I’m still really proud of it. It was 31 pages! With 20 of my own recipes! And I took all the photos with my phone.
Everyone knows to slather on the sunscreen to block the sun’s UV rays, but there’s one crucial step your sun-protection routine might be missing: Breakfast!
Diet is an often-overlooked part of how we adapt to our external environments throughout the seasons. Let’s take a look into why the first meal of the day can prep and protect your healthy summer glow.
Everyone seems to be losing their minds over the ongoing Oatly shortage so I thought I’d show you how easy and cheap it is to just make it yourself. All you need is oats, a neutral oil, salt, and water.
One of my clients introduced me to the concept of dessert hummus, which I thought sounded pretty gross, but then I started experimenting with my own recipe and now I’m looking back at my whole life wondering how I survived this long without it.
How much fiber are you actually getting a day? It’s recommended that we get between 25-35 grams, but most Americans are consuming half that amount. I thought I was doing pretty well until I tracked my meals for a few days and realized I was coming up a bit short. Even I have to take a moment once in a while to re-evaluate my choices when I’ve slipped into the same daily routine. So to kickstart our day, I came up with a breakfast that provides a major boost first thing in the morning.
I know that as a nutritionist I’m expected to LOVE kale… and I do enjoy it in some applications (like my roasted veggie + kale salad), but it’s certainly not my favorite leafy green. I do, however, love kale chips because I’m a snacker, and rather than mow down a box of Cheez-Its, these are my go-to because I know all I really want is something crispy and salty to mindlessly munch on—and you can never have too many veggies!
I’m not vegan, but I lean towards eating that way most of the time, and part of my experiments with making plant-based swaps in my favorite meals has brought jackfruit to my plate. I’ve seen it used as pulled “pork” and have had it smothered in BBQ sauce on a salad at Veggie Galaxy, but I had never tried it at home, so I ventured to the Super 88 Market and got myself a few cans to play around with.
You don’t realize how much bang you can get for your buck until you get a spiralizer. Who knew there were so many noodles hiding inside of a regular sweet potato? Whereas we’re used to sitting down to a baked potato and devouring the whole thing in one sitting (nothing wrong with that), spiralizing really stretches out your ingredients, especially when you can add a few more vegetables in the mix to make it more exciting.
‘Tis the season for pumpkin spice! Cinnamon, ginger, clove, nutmeg, allspice – these are the reigning flavors of fall and if you want to satisfy your sweet tooth well before Thanksgiving rolls around, these Pumpkin Pie Balls are a delicious, all-natural way to get your fix.
