Sometimes, there is truly nothing better than a cup of chicken soup. This one ups the nutrient-anty with bone broth and kale thrown into the mix. A great addition to any fall or winter day!
I make these babies almost every weekend as a Sunday treat! They are so delicious (and filling) and great for those who are still wanting to enjoy this breakfast favorite while also keeping gluten and dairy out of the picture.
Kale has had its time in the nutrition spotlight due to its powerful nutrient punch! Given kale is a hardy, cruciferous green, massaging it can be a great way to help break it down, making it the perfect side dish or base for your next salad.
Saying “no” to the sweet stuff can seem pretty darn daunting, especially when it feels like it’s everywhere!
However, its so worth it! Critically evaluating your sugar intake and minimizing it as much as possible for even two weeks can have significant impacts on your health and can really drive down inflammation.
“Chronic inflammation is fine. Until it’s not. And then it’s REALLY not.”
When it comes to inflammation and our immune systems, there are elements that are within our control – nutrition, exercise, sleep, etc. – and there’s those that are outside of our control – environmental toxins, air pollution, etc. All of these take a toll and add up over time. Think of your immune system like a bucket and each pro-inflammatory trigger is a drop of water in this bucket. Each micro trigger, over time, fills up our immune system bucket…until it overflows!
This light salad is full of all the best that the summer bounty provides – fresh green beans, light and flavorful herbs, hardy beets, and crisp green onions. Enjoy over greens or all on its own!
Snacking gets a bad rap. And rightfully so with so much junk out there to choose from! It’s not always easy to figure out how to eat healthy between meals. Use this list to help you build a smart snacking routine!
When I say simple, I truly mean simple! This is a go-to in my household on a weekly basis. Served with roasted veggies and a side salad it makes for a perfectly balanced weeknight meal.
“Stressed is DESSERTS spelled backward.”
– An ironic truth that has been turned into a refrigerator magnet…
Eating and nourishing our bodies are a part of the human experience. And as a dietitian, I recognize that there are times when not every nutrition choice is driven by physical hunger. For instance, my birthday was a couple weekends ago… you think that carrot cake cupcake (that I look forward to every year) was a response to my stomach growling?? Hard no. Definitely not. That was sheer bliss and an intentional choice to indulge and celebrate. So that I did. And enjoyed every flippin’ bite. But that was definitely not driven by physical hunger.
It’s the simplest of tools. And you have it on your person at all times…no apps, websites, pen, or paper needed.
