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

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

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

I’m not an online quiz type person. But one that a friend posted on Facebook the other day really intrigued me. It was called “how awesome is your husband?” Knowing I have an awesome husband, I thought: ok, I’ll bite, and took the quiz. All the answers were lining up, and I was certain IContinue Reading

Help! I’m addicted to sugar!!!

It’s a question people ask me all the time: “How do I overcome my sugar addiction?” (Or for some people, food addiction in general.) I know how frustrating it can be. The pull of food seems irresistible to you. You vow to do better, eat better, and cut out the sugar. Yet you find yourselfContinue Reading

Red White & Blue Greek Yogurt & Fruit Popsicles

I’m sorry friends, I’ve been holding out on you. I’ve been making these Greek yogurt, honey and fruit popsicles for two years. TWO YEARS! And yet, I’ve never shared the recipe. Maybe it’s because I never get a seem to get a chance to photograph them before they get gobbled up, or maybe it’s becauseContinue Reading

Creamy Chilled Avocado & Cucumber Soup

Creamy Chilled Avocado & Cucumber Soup

I’m pretty sure I’m going to cry next time I check the mail. The electricity bill is coming, and I am not excited to see what that looks like. Let me tell you, being 8 months pregnant in the summer heat is tough, but without air conditioning I would be dying. Fortunately my only concernContinue Reading
