No-Bake Cookie Protein Bites

  It's a few weeks into the new year, and I'm sure everyone is currently massaging their sore muscles from their new super regiment fitness plan, or if you are me, a "completely doable" marathon training program. Because why shouldn't I be able to do nothing ...

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 ...

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 ...

Creamy Broccoli, Bacon, & Mushroom Chicken Casserole

  Today I converted a childhood comfort meal into a much healthier and even more delicious version, which makes my heart and stomach very happy! I used to love this creamy chicken and mushroom casserole my mom used to bake--probably because ...

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls: No Refined Sugar & Vegan Friendly!

  I love cinnamon rolls. I really really love them, but who doesn't? Cinnamon rolls are fluffy, buttery, crazy sweet, and super decadent. Let's not forget how amazing they smell coming out of the oven. My husband's work makes the most ...

Whole-Wheat & Flax Tortillas

  Did you know that it's super easy to make homemade tortillas? So simple in fact, that I don't know why I never thought to do it before now. Plus, the freshly made taste is phenomenal; I won't ever go back ...

A Healthy Nutella: No Sugar Added

You know that feeling you get when you accomplish something monumental, like finishing a marathon, graduating college, or getting a promotion? That's how I felt today when I made a healthy Nutella with no added sugar or oil. Overreaching a ...

Chickpea Pesto & Avocado Grilled Cheese Sandwich

  When I think about a grilled cheese sandwich, I always think of the Kraft commercial that used to play on television (maybe it still does) where the kids are pulling apart the sandwich, and there’s gooey cheese going everywhere. Unfortunately, ...

Crispy Steak & Feta Pizza

  What if I told you that you could eat a whole 10-inch pizza by yourself, cheese included, and still be healthy? Would I be your new best friend?  I definitely will be after you taste it. Here's a super crispy ...

Raw Fruit & Chia Jam: My Grown-up PB&J

  Every school day from 1st grade through graduation, I ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch, and I couldn't get enough. I would spread on copious amounts of Peter Pan creamy peanut butter with just a little grape ...

Blueberry Raisin Energy Cookies

  I think we need to revolt against packaged desserts--who's with me? Those sickly sweet, overly processed desserts have no place in our health-conscious diets anymore. Have you heard that Nabisco just came out with a watermelon-flavored Oreo? I haven't actually looked ...

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, ...

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 ...

Avocado Egg Salad

After my third day in a row this week of tuna salad, I needed a change to combat my taste fatigue. I settled on egg salad, because I love eggs  (hard-boiled or scrambled are my favorites), and I eat about ...

Ranch Mac and Cheese with Butternut Squash

While growing up, whenever my parents asked what I wanted to eat for dinner, I always said macaroni and cheese--Kraft the Cheesiest to be exact. It didn't matter if that's what I had eaten the night before; I wanted it ...
