Fiber-rich black bean brownies

Fiber is an old stand by in the nutrition world. But recent research underscores the importance of fiber in hormone regulation and increasing the excretion of endo and exotoxins by supporting natural detoxification.

Increase kiddo veggie intake

Getting kids to eat a variety of veggies can be a battle. Not only does research suggest that kids should be getting at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies a day, but that it’s important to have diversity to ensure that important micronutrients are being consumed. While most kids (like my own) will munch on carrots and bell peppers, they are a lot less likely to eat kale and squash. So, I created a daily kid-friendly smoothie to boost their intake without a fight. […]

Healthier holiday eats: Savory green beans

Realization of the season: there are actually a TON of very normal holiday dishes that can easily be made healthfully. Oh sure there’s holiday sweet breads, desserts galore, and pre-made appetizers at the front of every grocery store. But there are a lot of options for making a dish that is “commonly accepted” as a holiday food that is also nutrient dense and delicious. […]

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. […]
