If it’s a day that ends in “y,” you’ll want these Asian-Style Cold Tahini Noodles ready for slurping up with chopsticks (or eating with a fork, if you must)! The bowl of goodness is flavorful, filling, and fully plant-based. And it’s a delightful way to get some veggies!
It’s soup season! For me that means I need to create a new soup. Here it is! It features cauliflower … purple cauliflower. But you can totally prepare this with any color cauliflower, including white. All forms are tasty and good for you, of course.
Montmorency tart cherries have a delightfully tart taste that I adore. Plus, they’ve got anthocyanins, which are health promoting! Dried tart cherries offer a sweet-tart balance and are tasty as is. But they’re quite versatile in recipes, too. They’re the star of this popcorn snack mix along with pops of lemon zest, fresh rosemary, and pistachios. Enjoy it as an anytime snack—or a fun party app!

This fall I have had the pleasure to have Leah Kern as my dietetic intern. She loves story-telling about food—and she has quite an adventurous eating style. Her default meals have a Mediterranean flair. So, I asked her to create a seasonal Mediterranean-style recipe for you. (Check out her instagram page for food and stories @foodfor_thought_.) She created this awesome salad that I’ll be sure to be making often. Here’s her story about the delightful salad—and the recipe!
This is how I like to start my Saturdays … with a comforting bowl of savory oatmeal. And this one is loaded with goodness (hello anti-inflammatory ingredients!). It has a few steps … but you can quickly cook up the “tofu” and tart cherry reduction while the oatmeal is simmering. So, it’s simpler than it may seem.
