When I don’t have anything important to be doing, I find that my mind wanders to the fridge and what I could eat for a snack. It is important to recognize hunger vs. boredom because if your body does not need those calories, chances are you will gain weight and be farther away from your goals! more...

Why only have soups during the cold weather months? I love soup all year round. I made this soup this past weekend and it was so delicious I could barely stand it. And I got to use some ingredients that I don’t normally use – it was nice to change things up a bit. Never had bok choy before? It’s a cabbage type vegetable that is high in vitamin C and vitamin A. When buying bok choy look for bright green leaves and hardy stems. Pull apart the leaves when washing to ensure you get both sides of the leaves clean. Store it in the fridge for up to a week. This recipe comes from the Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook. more...

It is a daily goal of mine to consume the FDA’s recommended 11-13 servings of fruits and vegetables each day. You may be thinking “11-13! That’s impossible”. And while yes this can be difficult, by no means is it anywhere close to impossible. It is all about finding what works for you. I have concluded that for me, after years of reflecting on my own habits, one of these food groups is easier for me to consume while the other I struggle with pretty much on a daily basis. more...

Pretty much every grocery store has tomatillos over by the tomatoes, potatoes or squash. However, the Stanley IGA doesn’t carry these. I asked. This was a random comment, but I was just there and I was looking for them. I have never tried tomatillos before and since the Health Promotion (HP) department decided to play a little game of veggie bingo for the month of March, this seemed like a great time to try and consume more green produce. Tomatillo was on our list along with kale, zucchini, broccolini, kohlrabi…I had no clue how to prepare tomatillos. Could I eat them raw? I was on a mission to find some recipes to help me win the bingo challenge. I love a little competition. Especially, against my fellow HP gang. I found this website called cooking with tomatillos. It was perfect. I obviously knew they were green and that’s it. Here are my learnings: more...
