Roasted Broccoli, Sundried Tomato and Romano Frittata

Frittatas are so versatile – if I have a bunch of eggs and veggies in the fridge it’s a no-brainer to whip one up for breakfast or lunch. I love roasted broccoli and had a block of romano cheese staring at me in the fridge so I figured I would pair the two with some […]

Blueberry Walnut Smoothie

One of my goals this year is to add more color to my diet. This may seem like a really weird thing for a dietitian/chef to say, but sometimes nutrition goes out the door when things get busy. Simple recipes like this smoothie are a great way to pack a lot of nutrition into one […]

Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and I really enjoy make-ahead breakfast items that I can enjoy throughout the week like pancakes. These taste and smell so good, especially if you love lemon like I do. These are great all on their own and they’re quite filling thanks to the eggs and Greek […]

Sunflower Seed Butter Energy Bites

Back-to-school season means meal prep is back in full swing and my clients want their fridges stocked with healthy meals and snacks. Packing school lunches can be tricky since you have to be wary of those with allergies. Thankfully these energy bites are nut-free so they are safe to pack for a lunch treat or […]

Sweet Potato, Asparagus and Spinach Crustless Quiche

I’m always trying to figure out some make-ahead breakfasts for us to enjoy throughout the week that incorporate veggies. Frittatas and quiches are the perfect option. This crustless quiche is fluffy like a typical quiche, without all the carbs and extra fat from the crust. I like to serve this topped with hot sauce or […]

Berry Avocado Smoothie Bowls

Smoothies are a great way to pack lots of nutrition into one meal. This smoothie recipe in particular is full of fiber and healthy fats (but also tastes insanely good). I love serving smoothies in a bowl because garnishing with nuts, seeds, coconut and fruit is so fun – this would be the perfect cooking […]

Olive Oil Toasts with Herbed Scrambled Eggs and Burrata

I’m always looking for fun ways to jazz up my brunch menus. You can make scrambled eggs so many ways, but I like to keep them relatively simple by adding a splash of cream (this makes all the difference) and fresh herbs. The olive oil toast in this recipe adds the perfect crisp bite to […]

Cottage Cheese and Roasted Veggie Frittata

During the week I love to have some grab-and-go options in my fridge for breakfast and lunch. This frittata is perfectly balanced – you get carbs from the veggies, protein from the cottage cheese and eggs and fat from the pesto and cheese. This make-ahead meal is great served hot or cold. To reheat, simply […]

Cinnamon and Mixed Nut Granola with Yogurt and Berries

I recently had the most delicious granola on our cruise ship and I came back determined to try to make my own version. This granola has less oats and more nuts, which I love because it provides more protein and a wonderful toasty flavor. The plain yogurt provides an even more protein and the berries […]
