Growing up, pretty much my only experience with peas were the sad, mushy guys found in the canned goods aisle of the grocery store. They were okay (and a cheap and easy way to make sure my parents could get some veggies into us kids), but it wasn't until I had farm-fresh peas for the first time that I realized a fresh, sweet, bright green pea in the spring can almost be a religious experience! They are bursting with flavor and nutrients and can be used in so many ways—I encourage you to hop on the pea train!
Grain bowls are one of my favorite meals. A perfect balance of carbs, fats, and protein, they're the best way to get a lot of flavor and nutrients in one dish. Plus, they're hearty and filling. There's nothing better on a cool spring day.
So what are we waiting for? Let's build a bowl!
The snow is finally melting, the trees are budding, and my excitement for spring is building. This is the time of year for growth! Farmers' markets will soon be here and fresh, affordable produce will be abundant. All the smells and colors engage my senses. Now’s the time to “taste the rainbow,” figuratively speaking.
Fueling your body with good food is an essential part of training for any race but especially for marathons. Getting the right nutrients will give you the energy you need to sustain the long weekly runs leading up to the big race. A nutrition plan is as important as a mileage plan.

During these conversations we cover an array of different goals – better digestion, less headaches, solid sleep, hormone balancing, weight loss, fewer aches and pains… and you know where we always start? Real food. What is “real food,” you ask? And, how do I make sure I’m eating it? Let's talk!
I don’t know about you, but now that it's officially Spring, I’m suddenly craving lighter and brighter flavors! Goodbye root veggies and roasting pans, hello fresh and raw veggies from the garden!
Did you know that fresh produce loses vital nutrients every second it's off the stalk? Here's an easy fix: grow your own veggie patch! This will ensure, you're getting the healthiest food possible!
Happy asparagus season! Asparagus is one of the first fresh veggies to show up in the spring garden, and its harvest signals the start of an upcoming season of bounty. Even though we're all looking forward to warm weather, check out why you should spend some time basking in the joy of the early spring asparagus season.
I love the idea of food serving as a container. I feel like that's why people love ice cream cones, the cones are delicious themselves but are also full of tastiness. Fortunately, these southwestern stuffed peppers offer many more of health advantages, in addition to minimizing waste.
