Fudgy Black Bean Brownies

These black bean brownies are flourless & can easily be made vegan. They are deliciously fudgy, packed with fiber and you would never guess they are full of good-for-you ingredients!

Spicy Salmon & Broccoli Quinoa Bowl

Okay, so this recipe has been hanging out in my drafts for months now; don’t ask me why I haven’t shared it yet. I’ve totally been holding out on you guys, because I’ve made it approximately six times and every time I post it on my IG stories I get messages like: “OMG NEED THAT

Mexi-Veggie Stuffed Sweet Potato

I feel like the whole “meal prep” thing has really been catching on lately. Not just with all the foodies I follow, but with some of my friends and family members too, and I love seeing it! Mostly because as a dietitian, I preach it all the time. Whenever someone comes to me about their struggles with

Cauliflower Fried Rice with Shrimp

If you follow me closely here and/or on Instagram, you know that I am a big advocate of an intuitive eating, #allfoodsfit kinda lifestyle. When I post recipes like this where I happen to substitute a carbohydrate-rich food with a vegetable, I often get questioned. Before you get any crazy ideas, I want to clear

It may be a little scatterbrained, but that’s pretty much how I’m feeling lately (not necessarily in a bad way), so prepare yourselves. I hope it resonates with you somehow, regardless

The Ultimate Motivation

For as long as I am a practicing dietitian, there is one question that I don’t know if I will ever find the answer to: what motivates people? Seriously. Of course everyone is unique, so different people are motivated by a variety of different things, while other people seem to be permanently unmotivated. Others get really motivated

A Closer Look at Low-Carb Diets

First, I just want to get something off my chest. I LOVE carbs. I honestly can’t imagine my life without them. What do you mean no English muffin and banana at breakfast every day? No protein pancakes for dinner? No brown rice alongside my veggie stir fry or big bowl of whole wheat pasta with broccoli &

What a Dietitian Eats

Every once in a while I like to do a post in which I feature some of my favorite new food discoveries, or staples in my diet that I think everyone should know about and work into their diets as well! (Previously known as Peek Into My Pantry, A Few of My Favorite Things, etc.)

Passion vs. Obsession: When Healthy Eating Goes Too Far

I have always been a huge perfectionist; that’s something that will probably never change. In some cases it has actually been beneficial. I did really well in school because it was important to me. I didn’t just do it for the grade (although that helped), but I did it because of what I believed it said
