  • Lunch Today: Two-Bean Salad

    by Paula Gallagher | April 10, 2018

    bean-saladBeans are a staple in my house and they really should be a staple in every house. Canned or dried beans are inexpensive and offer so much nutritional goodness. Beans are an excellent source of protein, but they also contain protective fiber. One cup of chickpeas provides 11 grams of fiber and fiber helps eliminate toxins and slows the release of complex carbohydrates, resulting in balanced blood sugar over several hours.

    This recipe could easily be called a three-bean salad or four-bean salad, depending on what you have in your pantry. It combines the heartiness of beans plus the freshness of whatever vegetables and herbs you have on hand to make a salad that is perfect for lunch or dinner! Read more

  • Dinner Tonight: Artichoke Salad

    by Paula Gallagher | March 21, 2018

    artichokesIt's finally spring... at least on the calendar! And even though there may be snow falling in much of the United States right now, I can't help but feel that I need lighter, fresher meals. This artichoke salad is a fresh take on potato salad. This recipe is particularly good in the spring, when new potatoes, artichokes and leeks are in season and at their most tender, but if you are gung-ho on saying goodbye to winter, this salad can be a good option any time of year by trading out the artichokes for jarred artichokes or swapping them for whatever is seasonal in your area... think broccoli, green beans, or even radicchio.

  • Dinner Tonight: Sheet Pan Chicken with Vegetables

    by Paula Gallagher | March 13, 2018

    A fellow hockey mom introduced me to sheet pan meals. It sounded too good to be true. A healthy meal with things in your pantry in 30 minutes?! Well, not only is it true, my first attempt at it was delicious and sheet pan dinners have quickly become a much requested meal from everyone!

    Roasting, broiling, and baking are nutritious ways to cook too, enhancing foods’ flavors while locking in nutrients that cooking methods such as boiling leach out. And for a busy, busy family, being able to have a healthy homemade meal In 30 minutes or less, with minimal cleanup makes this recipe a winner. Read more
