Mediterranean Spaghetti Squash with Chicken & Feta

  Sometimes I get into a food funk and find myself not eating enough vegetables for a week or two (maybe that's you all the time). It's really easy to get out of the vegetable eating routine--you eat sandwiches instead of salads ...

Chicken Pot Pie with an Almond Cheddar Crust

  The last few weeks have been crazy for this dietitian. My baby girl will be here in less than a month, so I've been rushing to get her room ready, clothes washed, and hospital bags packed. Plus, I was fortunate ...

Rice Crispy Almond Butter Truffles

  Being under house arrest inspires delicious creativity, so you can thank the snowy Oklahoma weather this past weekend for these chocolate covered delights. I somehow managed to whip up these truffles in the middle of my 13 hour binge watching ...

Bacon & Broccoli Fettuccine Alfredo made with Spaghetti Squash

  If you haven't ever tried spaghetti squash, or swore you would never replace your beloved pasta noodles with a vegetable, I beg you to give this spaghetti squash fettuccine alfredo recipe a try. It's not often that I feel like ...

Chicken Burrito Bowls

  The words "healthy" and "Mexican food" are almost never used together in the same sentence, and for good reason. Mexican food is typically loaded down with processed carbs in the form of a giant tortilla and spoonfuls of white rice, ...

  Today I give to you a delicious pumpkin dessert recipe just in time for Thanksgiving! If you are trying to make a dish your gluten-free aunt, vegan cousin, and everyone in between will enjoy, then you can breathe a sigh ...

Protein bar deconstructed: roasted soybeans, nuts, and dark chocolate

  Does anyone else feel like summer flew by? My blogging has definitely been inconsistent recently, but it's been a busy few months! I started a new job teaching counseling lab for nutrition students, and I trained for and completed my first ...

Peanut Butter, Banana, & Cranberry Bars

  I must confess, I've been attempting to bake something delicious with buckwheat flour for a while now without any success. My buckwheat pancakes turned out gooey no matter how long I cooked them, my cookies had a strange off-flavor, and ...

Ricotta & Spinach Egg Muffins with a Quinoa Crust

Easy breakfast alert!   What qualifies as a hassle-free breakfast? To me, it's one where no greater than five minutes are spent prepping, cooking, and eating in the morning. These ricotta and spinach egg muffins meet that criteria, and they do it ...

Smoky Butternut Squash Soup

  Not only did I get to celebrate my niece turning one this past weekend in Missouri, but I also had the best butternut squash soup ever at my favorite coffee shop (I had coffee too of course--twice). The soup was ...

Real Food Crackers: Gluten-Free

  I love crunchy crackers with my tuna, or as a side with a big salad. However, most crackers you find in the store are lacking in nutrition; they are high in processed grains, salt, and low in protein and fiber. ...

Berry Almond Fruit Pizza

  What's red, white, and blue, and won't burn you this 4th of July? Unlike the rogue bottle rocket shot by your hyperactive nephew, my berry almond fruit pizza will only cool you down, and it definitely won't make you scream ...

Grilled Chicken Caprese

  My recently planted basil herb has exploded with leaves, which is great because that means my non-green thumb didn't kill it, but now I'm on the hunt for recipes that utilize the fragrant herb. I love insalata caprese, which is ...

Breakfast Quinoa: Berry & Walnut

  I'm the type of person that wakes up hungry every single day, so there's no way I could function skipping breakfast.  My extreme morning hunger always has me in search of a good hearty breakfast that will keep me full ...

Mini Chai Banana Cheesecakes

  Food sounds much more appealing when it's in miniature form. I think it has something to do with the fact you can eat mini food items with your hands, which makes it easy to grab and mingle at social functions.   The ...

Healthy Banana Pancakes: Only Two Ingredients!

Healthy pancakes made from only two ingredients: 1 banana and 2 eggs--yes please.   When I heard about these magical two-ingredient pancakes, I had to make them immediately. I was skeptical about how pancake-like they would turn out, but to my surprise, ...

Crispy Eggplant & Quinoa with Feta

I always try to be a bargain produce shopper by checking weekly online ads and buying produce in season, so I pounced on the deal when my local grocery store had eggplants for 58 cents each--that's cheap! Next up was figuring ...

Flourless Black Bean Brownies with Strawberry Sauce

Can there even be a Valentine's Day without chocolate? I think not. I fall victim to this consumer holiday every year, and couldn't imagine going through Valentine's Day without eating something incredibly chocolatey. Unfortunately, as I get older, the traditional box ...

Coconut & Almond Crusted Chicken

Who doesn't love hot, crispy, golden-brown fried chicken? I definitely do enjoy this classic comfort food, but I love it even more when I know it hasn't been deep fried in an unknown oil and doused in nutrient-lacking white flour.   Baking ...
