Q: I’m looking for an easy, healthy breakfast option and came across ‘overnight oats’. Are they healthy?
Fall brings an abundance of hearty, nutritious, and delicious squashes. From butternut to hubbard, each variety of squash brings forth a slightly different flavor and texture profile.
As a nutritionist, I spend a lot of time talking about food. I educate others on topics such as the health benefits of various foods, appropriate portion size for a given food, and how to look for healthy foods. I take a scientific approach in explaining how the macro- and micro-nutrient content of food affects our bodies.
Butter is another one of my go-to fat sources and second in My Favorite Fats series.
Butter is making a comeback! Long shamed for its high saturated fat content and the touted ill effects on cardiovascular health, many people (myself included!) are returning to butter for uses in baking, sautéing, and spreading.
Today I’m starting a series of posts on my favorite fat sources- for cooking, health benefits, and taste. The first is coconut oil. Stay tuned for more!
