As a dietitian, home cook, and enthusiast of all-things-delicious, I'm often asked, "so what do YOU eat?" Here's a blog to answer that very question! My hope is that you'll find (even just a little) inspiration from some of my favorite recipes, restaurants, party-ideas and food musings for your own happy, healthy, food-loving lifestyle.

Homemade TV dinner

Making ahead and storing in tupperware in the freezer makes for a delicious, re-heatable, lower sodium choice. Cooking up a storm is also a great way to spend a rainy last night in LA with the boyf. I'm leaving him with a freezer full of Elie Krieger's Better Beef Lasagna and my own Low-fat White Chicken Chili (and some Anchor Steam.) Off to NYC to accept my girlfriend of the year award...
