This recipe is a go-to when I have an acorn squash and am looking for something easy to put together. It is filling and delicious! I generally make it for dinner but it would be great for a weekend breakfast too. If this is the only thing I made, I’ll eat two eggs-in-holes, but generally, I’d eat one and have a well-rounded meal with the addition of a piece of olive oil toast and a side salad. You will get… Continue reading »

Back to school season can be stressful in a normal year, but with COVID-19 and switching to virtual or hybrid schooling plans this year is bringing extra challenges. In our programs, we discuss the importance of mindfulness and managing stress as strategies to reach our health goals. Here are a few strategies that may help you manage stress and stay on track through this difficult time. Regular Exercise We know that exercise helps improve our physical health, but did you… Continue reading »

Our team has written a lot of great blogs about meal prep lately, and they all make so much sense to prepare for a busy work week. Remember though, just because you’re working from home doesn’t mean you don’t have a busy work week! Meal prep is a fantastic way to make sure you have healthy options that are easy to grab, and that is still needed when you are at home. This way you avoid just making whatever is fastest like a PB&J… Continue reading »

It is really tough to find a good meatless meatball substitute. They always wind up too dry and crumbly, or too hard and tough. Pre-made ones have a lot of additives, and homemade ones are tough to keep together while cooking. But this recipe is one of the simplest (and healthiest) that I’ve seen, and it works! Lentils are not only protein-packed, but also provide fiber and many other nutrients. Make this easy swap next time you’re craving spaghetti and… Continue reading »

Persimmons are not as common in the US as other parts of the world, but we have been seeing more of them – which is great! Persimmons ripen in late fall to early winter here, so you’re probably seeing them on the grocery store shelves now. We recently got some in our produce box, so I’ve been looking for a variety of ways to enjoy this tasty fruit. Persimmons are a good source of many vitamins and micronutrients, particularly vitamin… Continue reading »

Why Overnight Oats? 1. This is one of the fastest recipes to put together that I know of. 2. Oatmeal has a lot of fiber, and overnight oats recipes can pack a good amount of protein as well. This should keep you full for longer, give you a lot of energy to start your day, and fiber helps lower blood sugar. 3. Doing meal prep means you can make these the night before so that it’s something you can grab… Continue reading »

As someone who eats meat-free, I spend a lot of time thinking about how to make sure I get protein through healthy, filling options. This recipe is estimated to have only around 450 calories, yet packs 20 grams of protein! Plus, it allows for many adaptations to your personal taste. Many recipes for stuffed sweet potatoes will call for you to bake them, which is great if you want to set and forget them in the oven for about half… Continue reading »

As the weather has been warming up, I have been absolutely craving a good melon recipe, and wanted to find something unique and savory that could be a simple addition to a dinner party. And wow, did this recipe deliver! Sweet, salty, and citrusy, it is light, filling, and a perfect way to get both fruit and vegetables added to your meal. The recipe calls for Castelvetrano olives, which are fantastic, but I made this recipe with a can of regular green… Continue reading »

While there are a lot of fun and easy-to-use single task kitchen tools (think avocado knives, garlic presses, etc.), there are super affordable multi-task tools that can save you time, money, and space! I love these the most, and they make cooking healthy at home so much easier! Microplane I am always preaching about my microplane, and I truly think it’s one of the most helpful and wonderful kitchen tools out there. If you’re like me and have very limited… Continue reading »

Fennel is a white, bulb-shaped root vegetable that grows with lovely fronds (the fronds look similar to dill). Maybe you haven’t ever heard of it, or maybe you’ve heard that it tastes like licorice and were scared away from trying it (try roasting it!). But fennel is an excellent source of vitamin C, potassium, and fiber; provides wonderful antioxidants; and is even thought to have anti-inflammatory properties. Fennel is a wonderful vegetable because the bulb, stalk, and fronds are all… Continue reading »
