10 Tips to Becoming a Healthy Vegetarian

Vegetarianism is becoming increasingly popular as books, television shows, and movies have exposed popular farming and slaughtering practices in this country.  If you or someone you know is considering becoming a vegetarian, here a few things to consider in order to stay healthy: When you cut protein sources, you need to ADD protein sources – […]

Recipe: Spiced Wine

Wine has some incredible health benefits, giving me an excuse to enjoy it frequently.  Actually, I suppose ‘frequently’ is a relative term.  I probably enjoy a glass of wine a few times a week, most often when I eat out.  Eating out gives me a great opportunity to try a variety of wines, some that […]

Recipe: Raw Cauliflower Salad

This salad combines a variety of raw but very tasty winter fruits and vegetables into an easy to make, flavorful dish.  The great thing about this salad is that you can pretty much use whatever you have at home to throw this together.  For instance, replacing the red apple with red grapes or dried cranberries […]

Myth: 95% fat free means only 5% of the calories are from fat

TRUTH: Even though a basic elementary school education would tell us that 100%-95% = 5%, this is, in fact, just not true when it comes to food claims. As many of you may know, my usual approach to food and nutrition is that of applying common sense. However, in this case, common sense won’t do […]

A Glimpse into a Dietitian’s Kitchen

Often, private clients seeking guidance begin our first session stating ‘I want to be ______ and I don’t always eat the things I know I should. What do you eat?’ and I wish it worked like that – I could just tell them what I eat and then everything would be “fixed”. But it’s highly […]

Recipe: Kabocha Flan

Flan is a traditionally French dessert, a creamy, caramel-y custard (similar to crème brulee).  The main difference is that flan has a soft, liquid caramel on top vs. the hard, caramel shell of crème brulee.  In Europe it’s often made with a pastry crust, but the type we’re used to in the United States is […]

Recipe: Bulgur Salad with Pomegranate and Pistachios

Easy winter salads that are filling but pack a good nutrition punch can be repetitive (quinoa with butternut squash, amaranth with acorn squash, etc).  Often though, I just want a quick and easy recipe to make a large amount of food that’ll keep for at least a week and doesn’t have squash.  I’ve tried a […]

Myth: If you can’t lose weight, you’re eating too much

TRUTH:  There are a variety of factors that play a role in your weight and health.  The major components are: genetics, food quantity and quality, and physical activity level.  Of course, there are even more factors, such as age, gender, race, and quantity/quality of sleep, but let’s focus on the major factors for now. Many […]

Running Water Runs Dry

A sustainability issue that we rarely hear about is that of water.  It’s often overlooked, though the impact of having fresh water (or the lack thereof) is felt worldwide.  Lacking clean water leads to food shortages, health disparities, and massive death tolls.  I have to be honest, I’m not very well versed in the complexities of […]

Recipe: 10 Ideas to Flavor your Oatmeal

Oatmeal is probably the most popular hot breakfast cereal in the country, but many people buy prepackaged, pre-flavored instant packets.  All that extra processing and packaging adds to the cost but subtracts from the nutritional value. If you currently purchase the pre-flavored oatmeal packets, then you should  consider this: in only one or two simple […]
