Recipe: Indian-Spiced Turkey Burgers

Recently, I was excited to discover Butterball's new Farm to Family turkey product line that includes no antibiotic ever turkey products including ground turkey and turkey patties. There are three all-natural variaties: ground turkey breast, 93% lean 7% fat ground turkey, and turkey burger patties. All three provide a wholesome eating experience at an affordable price.

Recipe: Fiesta-Style Stuffed Bell Peppers

Some weeknights, I am just beat and even a 30-minute recipe sounds like too much to take on. This used to mean take-out would be my go-to option on those weary evenings. But then I realized that taking the take-out route was happening more nights than I intended, and it wasn't doing my wallet or waistline any favors.

Recipe: Spicy Fish Tacos with Tangy Mango Crema

Tacos have always been one of my favorite foods. Even as a little girl, I loved how a small, only-one-hand-needed food could pack so much flavor into every bite. From the warm, soft tortilla to the perfectly seasoned meat to the slightly spicy salsa to the crunchy lettuce, nothing can really satisfy a craving for Mexican food quite like a taco.

Recipe: Sarah-Jane and Joe's Blackened Salmon

Hi y'all! Today I wanted to share one of my all-time favorite recipes. This is one that my husband, Joe, and I created together, and we literally enjoy it at least once every week! You probably already know how important seafood (especially fish that are rich in heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon) are in a healthy diet. However, you may be one of the many people who doesn't really like fish or finds it difficult to prepare. I know I used to be one of those people! I thought fish always tasted too...

Recipe: Easy Guacamole

What's not to love about guacamole? It's easy to make, a fun party dip, and full of healthy ingredients! Avocados, of course, are the main ingredient, and they are a great source of healthy fats that are important for heart health and for keeping your skin looking great. Tomatoes (rich in vitamin C), fresh cilantro (which contains zinc and vitamin A), and spices join the party to create the perfect, flavorful guac. Whether you spread it on toast or dip tortilla chips into it, guacamole is a must-have recipe.

Video: Why HOW You Eat is Just as Important as WHAT You Eat...

When we think about healthy eating, we often focus on WHAT we eat. However, HOW we eat is just as important to achieving a healthy lifestyle. In this video, I share the four habits of mindful eaters. Research shows that mindful eaters naturally eat less while still feeling more satisfied than those who do not eat  mindfully.

Recipe for Your Memorial Day Picnic: Angel Eggs: I Give Deviled Eggs an Upgrade!

Here in the South, no picnic, cookout, or party is complete without a platter of Deviled Eggs. When I was a little girl, I thought they MUST be "bad" because they had "devil" in the name. Now, as a registered dietitian, I don't classify particular foods as "good" or "bad" (let's face it, food does not have a moral code to follow!), but I do love trying my hand at "upgrading" a recipe so it provides me with more nutritional benefits along with great taste!
