 I may be a dietitian, that doesn’t stop me from having a pretty mean sweet tooth. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you want to look at it), the 891,527,523 hours I’ve spent studying nutrition – and its never-ending slew of health and wellness implications – just so happens to be enough to keep me from leading a life fueled entirely by ice cream and cookies.

Does the word “cranberry” evoke memories of Thanksgiving (specifically, those infamous jellied cranberry molds that resemble the shape of a metal can)?

If so, you’re not alone. Cranberries are a staple on many Thanksgiving tables – mine included. But, for some reason, these flavorful tart berries tend to get the cold shoulder the other 364 days of the year.

What do you say we change that, shall we? (more…)

Hello, hello! Just your friendly neighborhood Oompa Loompa popping in with yet another pumpkin recipe. And you thought I was joking when I said “I hope you like pumpkin”. HA!

In all honesty though, it was never my intention to turn this little blog into a virtual pumpkin shrine. It just sort of… happened. Kind of like when I had some leftover pumpkin sitting in my fridge and it just sort of *fell* into these oatmeal cups. Oops. #sorrynotsorry

A Toast to Toast

If you happen to follow me on Instagram (@bytesizednutrition), then it should come as no surprise that I like toast… a lot.

A Toast to Toast: A guide to taking your toast from bleak to chic

Yup, toast. As in golden brown, crunchy sliced bread. I know what you’re probably thinking (“And you call yourself a food blogger?!”), but let’s get something straight here. I’m not talking about plain ol’ toast that has been haphazardly schmeared with butter… although there is a time and place for for that (most notably, local diners circa 2am). Nope, I’m talking about toast piled so high with toppings that you need a fork to clean the mess you’ve made once you’ve demolished that sucker.

Oh, and if you happen to be one of those crazy people who believes that toast consumption should only be restricted to the morning hours, be prepared to question everything you’ve ever known about this so-called “breakfast” food. In fact, some of my best toast creations have come about as impromptu lunches, dinners, or snacks. SO. MANY. POSSIBILITIES.  (more…)
