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.

Eggs: love ’em, leave ’em, eat ’em?

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? […]

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.

Longevity, vitality, health

One of the biggest indicators of measurable health is longevity. There are predictable factors surrounding those who outlast others. Time Magazine published a fascinating article earlier this year about three things that add up to increased longevity (and we’d argue vitality, too). […]

Hyatt family eats: slow cooker vegetarian quinoa

For busy weeknights, the slow cooker is a dream. But I’ve always had a hard time finding vegetarian recipes aside from chili. With baseball season upon us, I took matters into my own hands modifying a meat-based recipe to create a Mexican-inspired, rainbow-packed staple vegetarian meal for our family. It’s forgiving and easy to make substitutions for your preferences. […]
