Too hot to turn on the oven? You can still enjoy all the colorful fruits and vegetables available this season! Summer is my favorite time of year to fire up the grill and take dinner outdoors. I don't eat meat, so I load up my barbecue with seasonal veggies like corn and bell peppers instead. They taste amazing with fresh greens and vinaigrette! Looking for more warm-weather cooking ideas?
Are you skipping meals or eating way too little in hopes of losing weight? Extreme diet strategies may be commonplace, but many studies show they don't actually work. As a registered dietitian, I can think of more than a few things I wish you knew about weight loss. Wondering what they are?
We all want to look and feel amazing as we get older. But without access to the elusive fountain of youth, how can we make graceful aging a reality? Our diets play a significant role in how we look and feel with age, per numerous studies. This is one reason why I love including antioxidant- and nutrient-dense foods like berries and eggs to nourish my body and mind as I get older. Wondering what other foods you can eat to feel young?
Summer's almost over, but we can still enjoy the last days of grilling. What is YOUR fave food to grill? I grew up in Florida, so I also grew up grilling. And I've taken that grilling with me to the northeast—on warm summer days, I love pairing grilled tofu and polenta with yummy grilled veggies, as well as grilled peaches for dessert (drizzled with reduced balsamic vinegar, of course!).
