oat revolution steel cut maple & brown sugar oatmeal. I have a confession to make. I’m going through a major obsession with maple & brown sugar instant oatmeal. Would I recommend it as a Nutritionist? NO! But it’s kind of addicting and so easy…

greek

sweet earth ‘the greek burrito.’ It’s a blend of white beans, baby spinach, feta and oregano with 13 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber. It was delicious! (I found it at Target, but have seen it in natural food stores too.)

clover ‘cream on top’ whole milk yogurt. I bought this on a whim and I must say that it’s been a while since I’ve boughten non-Greek yogurt. I loved it. The protein isn’t as high (obviously) but it was so lovely…I’ll definitely buy it again.

g & b cold brew coffee. G & B was recently featured in The New York Times as the “best iced latte in America.” It’s made with their homemade almond and macadamia milk. It was delicious, but I love their cold brew coffee even more. I never thought I would say this, but…it doesn’t even need cream.

New Favorite Foods (June) | A Nutritionist Eats

earthbound farm chia & soba noodles & asian greens powermeal bowl. These bowls are a little small for the price, but they would make a great meal (that’s certainly cheaper than a restaurant) when paired with some grilled chicken or tofu. An easy, delicious and organic meal! 

better booch kombucha. I’m still on a fermented foods/kombucha kick (I should really make my own) but I found this LA-made version in Peach Tea flavor (called Morning Glory) and it’s fantastic.

massel concentrated liquid stock. I love having stock in the pantry, but I have a tiny kitchen and just don’t have the room for boxes upon boxes of stock. I’ve started cooking my quinoa with a mix of water and stock and it is SO much better than all water. Massel recently sent me some of their concentrated stock and I love that it is made with simple ingredients and is vegan and gluten-free.

curried lentil turkey soup

This soup was a total accident. I didn’t have any leftover turkey – or plans for leftover turkey. But then on Saturday, we decided to pick up a 15 pound turkey and have another round of Thanksgiving. My thoughts immediately went to leftovers. Can you blame me? Curried lentil soup with turkey came to mind

tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes!

If you have a garden (or visit the farmers market) you’ve got to have a ton of tomatoes. Right? In addition to having a dog, part of our house-sitting duties were eating the food from the garden! Turns out, that is a very fun chore. We had a drawer full of tomatoes and they needed

So I kind of got fired from one of my side jobs last week.  Oddly enough, I was actually more proud than upset. I’ve never been one to really stand up for myself and tell people exactly how I feel, but I was pushing back on most of the procedures this company wanted me to

white bean & kale soup

I know all of my Midwest friends and family will think that I’ve completely lost it, but its been cold in California. (And raining. No one told me it rained here, but I kind of like it.) And when its cold, I crave soup to warm me up! I’m a fan of all kinds of

slow cooker recipes

I’m on my way to Wisconsin this weekend with one pair of boots and a trench coat (everything else is still in the pod!) so I’m hoping for some mild weather…and thinking about lots of warm and cozy slow cooker meals!  I’ve mentioned before that I used to have a snobby attitude about the slow

restaurant: bona vietnamese

I was long overdue for a pho trip. Close to withdrawals actually. So when I spent a weekend on campus for yoga sculpt training, there just happened to be a Vietnamese restaurant right down the street that I had heard had delicious pho. Fate, right? So the Taster and I headed to a local watering
