matcha green tea

Matcha tea is my latest obsession. I love the color and the texture and I’ve been adding it to pretty much everything. Lucky for me, this month’s recipe redux challenge is cooking with tea: Tea cups around the world are bubbling up with bold new flavors: From cardamom chai and sencha green to bubble teas […]

Travel Eats: My Plate Recap While Eating On The Go

May 19, 2014

I had fun last week traveling to San Francisco to visit the home of Clif bar. They invited a group of dietitians out for their annual “RD Summit” to educate us on their product line and how they run their company. They are a pretty impressive organization to say the least, and I can see […]

What I Ate Wednesday (The RD Edition) Post #1

May 7, 2014

As someone who tells other people what to eat for a living, I try not to talk too much about what I eat. In part because I don’t want you to think you should be eating like me. And in part because I don’t want to be judged, one way or another. Because eating “healthy” […]

Italian Carrot Salad

This month’s recipe redux post is honoring treasured cookware. I could not think of a better item to showcase than my mom’s famous white serving bowl.

Green Papaya and Carrot Salad

Have you ever had green papaya? If you’ve ever eaten at a Thai restaurant, you probably have. Green papaya is actually just unripened papaya. It has a super mild, almost tasteless flavor that becomes sweet and crispy once it’s massaged with dressing. Ryan and I made this Thai-inspired salad at our Detox Kitchen cooking class last […]

Apricot and Almond Granola

I’ve never made granola before. Not sure why, I just never thought I would like it. I had no idea I was totally missing out. I made this apricot granola as a request from the hubby, who was mesmerized by Bobby Flay whipping some up on The Food Network. He only recorded the last 5 […]
