Avocado Salsa Puffs

Originally posted on Marta in Chicago:

DSC00551My husband, Evan, and I live in an apartment in Lincoln Square, a great neighborhood a few miles north of downtown Chicago. The streets are tree-lined, and compared to the hustle and bustle of downtown, it’s very peaceful and quiet. Our third floor windows look out into tall, aged maple trees, which make our home feel like a tree house during the summer. Sounds great, right?

The one thing we’re missing is an outdoor space. We have a small landing out back, but no real patio or deck to enjoy the warm summer evenings. The biggest drawback is that we have nowhere to put our beloved grill, which currently resides up the street at our old apartment, getting plenty of love from our friends, Caitlin and Keith. They’re wonderful hosts who have us over often to grill and enjoy their lovely back porch (which we shared before leaving the building four years ago).

Breakfast sundae with pineapple whip, granola and fresh fruits

Originally posted on Chitra's Healthy Kitchen:

Breakfast Sundae

About:

Sundae everyone feels it is Ice cream but it is a Breakfast Sundae – it’s a dairy free, nutritious breakfast sundae that’s just as delicious. This treat contains Pineapple whip, berries, fruits and homemade Granola.

As a variation I used Pineapple whip in place of Yogurts and Homemade Granola with Red rice flakes and Oats.

Eat this sundae and you’ll be starting your day off with lean protein and good fats, which is prized in both Japan and South America for its health-benefits.

Serves-2
Preparation time-10 minutes

Thinking About Nutrition

Originally posted on CrossFit Manatee:

At our nutrition seminar a few months ago, we drew a framework for thinking about nutrition on the board. It looked something like this:

...except the version on the whiteboard was less colorful

The basic idea here is that you can break down how we think about and react to food into two components: An emotional component, which relates to your own personal memories, your favorite foods from childhood, and your mental state before, during, and after eating; and a fuel component, which relates to the chemical processes that take place in your body when you consume food.

The emotional component of food is deeply personal. Certain foods elicit emotional reactions in people, and many people this irrational, subjective, side of food guide their eating choices. Maybe you grew up eating mom’s tuna casserole, so you constantly crave cheesy, pasta-y, tuna-y goodness. This side of nutrition is very important, but it is hard to make generalizations about the emotional effects…

Egg Substitutions (For Baking)

Originally posted on The Feel Good Foodies:

chia seeds

Whether you’re vegan or not, or allergic to eggs or not, it’s nice to have the option of baking without eggs, and to know how to do it.

So today I’m going to eggsplain eggactly how to create eggceptional egg-eggempt baking! Eggciting, right?

…Did you get all that?

Eggcellent.

Eggs are used in baking as a binder. That is, it’s food-glue to hold your baked goods together. There are other foods that are sufficiently glue-y and still healthy that you can use to substitute for eggs in baking. And this works not only for cookies and other sweet confections, but also savory goods like pizza crusts and crackers. Just consider which flavours will work best with what you’re making and play around a little.

Flax Seeds

The outer layer of flax seeds contain a mucilaginous substance that creates a gel when in contact with water. This gooey substance is a…

Chipolte Beef & Corn Salad

Originally posted on Zosia Cooks:

photo 2-269

Salads make a great summer dinner but for me, they must be satisfying to eat and keep me full (so I don’t get the post-dinner munchies). We grill a lot in our household and most grilling nights I will throw an extra steak (or other protein) on the grill so I can turn it into a dinner salad for the next night. That makes the next night’s dinner even easier.

So here’s a spicy and satisfying dinner salad that I adapted from Williams Sonoma that fits the bill to a tee. The steak is mildly seasoned yet completely satisfying; you can serve it either hot off of the grill or cold. The lime juice makes the corn salsa tangy and the avocados temper the entire dish. Be forewarned: the chipolte dressing is smoky and spicy with quite a bit of heat so a little goes a long way. Of course, I love…
