  1. 7-Minute Rotisserie Chicken and Roasted Veggies for under $10

    Gone are the days when I could let myself get lost in Whole Foods, scoping out the latest nut butter or casually grinding my own coffee beans. Nowadays I’m in and out of the corner market just long enough to grab my 10 get-me-through-the-week items that I can locate in my sleep (and probably have). So whenever there’s a corner to cut at dinnertime, I’ll take it!   Cheat this… Read More

  2. No Fuss Road Trip Snacks

    I’m a great snack packer. Always have been. My mom calls me a squirrel, because I have something stored away in my bag at all times. You never know when you’ll get stranded underground in a hot subway car or stuck in traffic gridlock. And now that I have kids, I’m like the snack pack leader. Be prepared with these suggestions, fit to conquer any craving: crunchy veggies (for the… Read More

  3. The Best Frittata You’ll Ever Eat

    If you’re having Easter Brunch, do yourself a favor and make this frittata. I’ve made it only once, but it’s so easy, and the feedback from my guests was “these are some of the best eggs I’ve ever tasted.” It’s amazing… and it’s only 200 calories per serving. 12 eggs ½ cup sour cream (full fat) 1 package mushrooms (oyster, cremini or whatever you like) 2 large leeks 6 oz… Read More

  5. GreenBlender: Organic Smoothies Delivered

    I’ve been jones’ing for a tropical vacation, big time. So when this box of fresh fruits & veggies showed up at my door, it was just what I needed to lift me from my winter blues.

  6. 3 Protein-in-a-Pinch Lunch Ideas

    For me, lunch is the hardest meal. It’s usually an afterthought until my belly starts growling and I start digging in the cupboards for something fast and easy (and usually not so healthy). The biggest challenge is finding something with protein – because I know if I don’t get protein into my lunch, I’ll just want to keep grazing til dinner.   Luckily, with just a few staples on hand,… Read More

  7. Travel Friendly Snacks

    Airports and rest stops are generally not known for their healthy fare. With salty, sugary temptations abound (and stress levels high!) it can be tough to make decent snack choices while on the go. But with a little planning, you can arrive safely at your destination and still fit into your bikini. On the Plane… The air on planes is extremely dry and can dehydrate your skin. And airline food can sometimes… Read More

  8. Homemade Spelt Pizza

    I’m always trying to find ways to have Joaquin participate in the kitchen with me – even if it is to make not-so-healthy foods like cookies. Last Friday, we finally got around to using our new pizza stone and the result was so worth the wait. Javier also got a few new “toys” (aka obnoxiously large lights) to fuel his photography hobby, so we setup a studio with lights and… Read More

  9. Brooklyn Chili (a leaner recipe you’ll love!)

    It’s been cold, damp and dreary in New York for the past few days. My parents were in town to meet our newest addition, Miguel, and we overdid it eating out the first few nights. (Check out The Heyward next time you’re in Williamsburg — delicious Southern food.) So we were craving some warm, comforting, home cooking.   My mom and I combined ideas (starting with one we found on… Read More

  10. Honestly Green Popsicles

    I’d feel like a failure as a nutritionist and mom if I couldn’t get my kid to eat at least one green thing a day. Sure, he eats those pouches with mixes like kale, apple, and mango, but let’s be honest, it’s like 99% fruit and 1% greens. (More of a marketing ploy really. And yes, they got me cause I still buy them!) So I experimented with making my… Read More
