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 […]

 

Arugula Salad with Soft-boiled Eggs

New moms need fast, easy meals to keep them going without leaving them feeling guilty. This is one of my go-to quick lunches that’s both satisfying and nutrient-packed. And it only takes about 5-10 minutes of prep. 2 organic eggs 2 cups organic, pre-washed arugula ½ avocado, chopped 6 grape […]

 

Black Bean and Avocado Brownies

Well we had an extra avocado and I really wanted to try to make the brownies fudgier with a better quality chocolate. My friend, Michaela, inspired me to try a version with black beans. Believe it or not, these are even better than the version with flour!  I think the […]

 

Fudgy Avocado Brownies

Bacon, Sage and White Bean Soup Recipe

Yes, I know I just posted a white bean recipe, but this recipe (modified from Food Network) is so worth sharing.  Plus, I knew I’d lure you in with the word bacon.  Unfortunately, I did not remember to take a picture of this one.  Though, I will be making it […]

 

Recipe: White Bean Chicken Chili

Fall is the perfect time for soups, stews and chili! Try my slightly spicy take on white chili to satisfy and warm you on a chilly day. Ingredients 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed (I like organic Smart Chicken) 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon pepper 1 medium onion, chopped […]

 

10 Minute Salmon Gratin Recipe

I was watching a French chef highlighting some toaster-oven friendly recipes on the Today Show. He used fresh crab to make this recipe (which I’m sure tastes divine), but I chose canned salmon because: a) that was all I had, and b) it’s higher in baby brain-friendly omega-3 fats! Ingredients […]
