Hatch Chili Chicken Stew

Hatch Chili Chicken Stew

If you live anywhere close to the southwestern part of the United States, then you probably understand the hype about hatch chili season. Every fall, the chili peppers start showing up on farmstands and in CSA baskets. I got a bunch myself last week and was super excited to make my favorite enchilada stuffed chiliContinue Reading

Ginger Miso Salmon

Ginger Miso Salmon

Not to brag, but I’m pretty sure I’ve perfected the art of cooking salmon. It goes something like this: heat a cast iron skillet under the broiler until it is hot, add the seasoned salmon skin side down, and allow to cook for 10 minutes under the broiler. The result is a flaky, juicy, yetContinue Reading

Wait wait. Stop for a second. Can you feel it? In the air? FALL IS COMING! I don’t know why I love fall so much. I love spring and summer too–and I tolerate winter– but there’s something about the September air that gets me excited. Maybe it’s college football season (my husband and I wentContinue Reading

Oat Bran Chicken Parmesan

Oat Bran Chicken Parmesan

I’ve been struggling a little with what to name this recipe. I considered “Lower Carb Chicken Parmesan,” “Higher Fiber Chicken Parmesan”, but neither really appeals to me, since I rarely make food choices based on the carb/fiber content of the meal alone. “No Breadcrumb Chicken Parmesan” would work, but that just sounds soggy to me,Continue Reading

BLT+E Salad

BLT+E Salad

I’m proud to say I’m over my salad slump. It’s true. For a while I was struggling with salads because they were all the same, and I was bored. But ever since I decided to try some new and creative salad combinations, I’ve been on a roll. Here’s another one that takes one of myContinue Reading

Confessions of a Nutritionist: I eat REAL food and REAL dessert!

It was one of those loaded questions that’s just too hard to answer. Kind of like “what do you think of my new boyfriend?” or “how does this dress make my butt look?” But the truth is, no one liked my brownies. Every time I asked “what do you think of my brownies?” friends wouldContinue Reading

Crispy Ranch Chicken

Crispy Ranch Chicken

I woke up from my Sunday nap craving fried chicken. I’m not the kind of person who has random food cravings (at least not since I stopped dieting), but I would chock this one up to my final month of pregnancy and a series of instagram photos of a friend’s friend chicken sandwich. Why isContinue Reading

Thai Style Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Thai Style Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I’d heard about this dreadful condition, but I never thought it would happen to me. I’m usually very competent at making decisions at restaurants. But I guess no one is immune. When the waiters came with our food, and I saw what was on my friend’s plate, I knew I had made a mistake. IContinue Reading

How Much Willpower Do You Really Need?

In the Trauma ICU, 3 PM was the time that all hell broke loose. Every. Single. Day. No, the patients didn’t start crashing, and there was not a rush of new patients. In fact, on the outside, the trauma unit seemed completely calm. But inside my head, it was a whirlwind of chaos.  3 PMContinue Reading

Red Raspberry Grilled Chicken Salad with Creamy Raspberry Vinaigrette

Red Raspberry Grilled Chicken Salad with Creamy Raspberry Vinaigrette

Variety is the spice of life, right? I’ve always thought so, and I’m the kind of person that will load up on a little bit of everything when I go to the salad bar. Same holds true when I make salads at home. I throw a little of everything in. Yet somehow, those salads neverContinue Reading
