Hyatt family eats: Veggie chili for 20

My philosophy on veggie chili is go big or go home, both in flavor and in size. I’ve been making this recipe for years, and am always thankful for the extra leftovers when they are in the freezer. This hearty vegetarian version of classic chili packs in the flavor and veggies without guilt or grease. […]

To Fitbit or not to Fitbit

I started last summer on a mission to really test out a Fitbit Alta. I was motivated by a few reasons, and the things I learned were both surprising and not surprising at the same time. As the research mounts about the importance of overall daily movement, many of us are looking to incorporating activity trackers. I hope the findings of my experiment can help to provide a little insight into this sector. […]

Eggs: love ’em, leave ’em, eat ’em?

The other day a friend made a comment about eating three hard boiled eggs, but not every day. Based on what I know about her, my guess is she has the same question that many of us have: Can/Should I eat eggs (particularly the yokes) every day? Or are they too high in cholesterol and need to be limited? […]

Hyatt family eats: Max’s cookies

When Max went to kindergarten, I needed to find something that I knew he would eat quickly and get calories and protein in during his short – 15 minute – lunch period. This recipe also doubles as a grab and go protein ball, but remember to keep in mind why they were designed, and think of string bean Max. […]

Hyatt family eats: kale salad two ways

I am happy to report that our little garden is BURSTING with kale right now. Summer is salad weather, and to me the key is in the right preparation. When I find something I love, it’s easier to eat it a lot. I hope you enjoy our take on kale salad, two different ways. […]

Hyatt family eats: healthy homemade pizza

Realistic and minimally processed are two of the main goals for our family’s meals. With a four- and six-year-old, pizza is a regular item on our menu. In fact, Max loves it so much he requests it for his school lunches. We make this healthy homemade pizza every Sunday. We eat it along side a big salad and rainbow colored fresh fruits and veggies. […]
