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.

"Kid" Food=Dietician's Dream

The peanut butter sandwich, when made well, can pack a healthy lunchtime punch. Make it with:

  • 2 slices whole grain bread
  • 1.5 Tbs natural peanut butter (size of a walnut)
  • 1/2 sliced banana (save the other for tomorrow's breakfast)
  • sprinkle of cinnamon (optional)
You're looking at about 350 calories, 12g healthy fats, 50g carbs, and 10g protein. It's delicious, nutritious, filling, and packs quickly for a day at the office, school, or travel. Pair it with carrot sticks for a real brown-bag lunch throwback.
