Take a break from traditional salads with this refreshing Cauliflower Chickpea Tabbouleh. A quick and easy no-cook dish that’s perfect for feeding a crowd!
Over the past few years, I’ve sat back and watched as cauliflower went from being the last item left on the veggie platter to the star of the produce section. As a dietitian, witnessing this dramatic transformation has been like watching a child struggle through the awkward teenage years and finally come out on the other side as a beautiful, confident young adult. I couldn’t be prouder of how far my little cruciferous veggie has come! (more…)
Mini Nice Cream Snickers Bars are a healthier way to satisfy your nightly ice cream craving. Creamy peanut butter banana “nice cream”, date caramel, chopped peanuts, and dark chocolate all come together to create a delicious sweet treat that you can feel good about indulging in!
Real talk: I’ve been going through a lot of ice cream lately.
But can you blame me? The weather in Ohio has been on point these past few weeks. I’m talking temps in the mid- to upper-80s and sunshine galore. Aka perfect ice cream weather. (Just kidding.. any kind of weather is ice cream weather in my book)
Ice cream is always one of my favorite desserts no matter what time of the year – but as soon the temps start to heat up, my ice cream obsession reaches an all-time high. Ice cream, fro-yo, DQ blizzards.. no frozen treat is safe when I’m around.
While I’m all treating yourself, I found that my nightly ice cream ritual was starting to turn into more of a habit than a treat. So when I heard that the theme for this month’s Recipe ReDux was “Small Bite Desserts”, I knew this was a sign that it was time for an ice cream intervention. (more…)

First off, thank you to everyone who read, commented, or shared my last post on IBS. I’m not usually one for talking about my feelings, so writing such a personal blog post was definitely not an easy task. But this is a topic that I’m extremely passionate about and believe needs to be spoken about more openly, so it was worth it. I just hope you know how much all of your support means to me!
Now, back to the food…
Have you ever found yourself so distracted by the thought of a recipe that you just NEED to make it in order to ever have hopes of focusing on anything else ever again?
No? Just me? Okay.
Well anyways, that’s how this beautiful creation came to be.
Earlier this week, I was just sitting around minding my own business and working on my thesis project, when out of the blue… BAM. Mimosa Poached Salmon Salad.

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.
