About Me

My Photo
Technically speaking, I'm a dietitian, but I see myself as a listener, a motivator, coach and teacher of nutrition. I prefer to end a busy day with a glass of red wine while chopping vegetables. Lover of almost anything pickled and fresh baked scones just not at the same time. I'm happiest when I'm cooking for people I love. Why am I so into food? Because I KNOW how much eating well can change your life. What you eat every day is going to impact your body and your mind. It's a confusing world out there - full of diet and food advice that always leaves you feeling like it's that one next diet that's going to be the weight loss answer. Stop waiting for that magic diet, and begin to take one step at a time in the right direction. I'm here to help you on your life-long journey, there's no better time to start!

Apricot Banana Pancakes

Its so nice to have a holiday Monday, where I can make breakfast for my fiance Johnny while he sleeps in. I had a large apricot from the farmers market, a frozen banana, and Bob's Red Mill 10 Grain Pancake mix. You can find Bob's Red Mill products in the baking aisle of your neighborhood grocery store. They make a wide variety of whole grain mixes, baking flours, soup mixes and much more. Check out everything they offer on their website BobsRedMill.com.

Here's what I came up with: 

Ingredients:

2 Cups Bob's Red Mill 10 Grain Pancake Mix
2 Large Eggs
1 Cup 1% milk
2 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
2 small or 1 large apricot, skin removed and chopped
1/2 a large banana, thinly sliced
Cinnamon 1 1/2 teaspoons
Butter or coconut oil

In a large mixing bowl, mix together all ingredients with a whisk until combined. You can adjust the consistency of the batter to fit your liking, and you can use water instead of milk if you're not a dairy person. Feel free to add in other fruit options, such as blueberries, strawberries, raspberries or mango. 

Melt a teaspoon or two of butter or coconut oil in a large skillet over medium low heat. Scoop a half cup of batter into the skillet and cook approximately 3-4 minutes on each side. 

Enjoy with maple syrup, lemon and butter with powdered sugar or fresh berry preserves.

  2. With obesity predicted to affect more than 50 percent of the population in the next 40 years, the age of ‘fad diets’ and ‘quick weight loss’ has boomed to epic proportions. From the apple cider diet to the Quantum Wellness, to the 48 Hour Miracle diet, each of these weight loss programs all claim to promote immediate weight loss and increased vitality.
    This is simply not correct. Fruits, veggies, whole grain, nut products, dried beans as well as oils, many include proteins. Meats in fact has high levels of sodium, fat and salt, particularly in red meat which is not so healthy due to its high levels of cholesterol. Whole grain, nuts, oils, and dried beans in fact onsist of more proteins than in meat products. Your own body requires at least 25 grams of protein per day ,so it is obvious you do not haveto eat only meat to obtain your day-to-day allowance.
