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 […]

 

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. Along with all the organic fruits & veggies you need (with the exception of […]

 

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 […]

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 […]

 

Blueberry Protein Pancakes

I’ve been loving this Protein Pancakes recipe from my dear friend and colleague Joy Bauer. And my son, Joaquin, is obsessed! I feel good knowing this uber picky eater is getting some decent protein (about 20 grams per pancake!). The key is the eggs. Both my husband and Joaquin despise eggs in […]
