There aren’t many ways I can get my kids to eat kale.  In fact, there is probably only one way, and this is it. Even adults who despise the thought of kale, embrace this vibrant and refreshing summer slushy I’ve created (minus the toxic food coloring found in most kinds of slushy type drinks). I LOVE the fact that I can give my kids something they actually enjoy along with a super boost of vitamins and antioxidants!  It’s not that…

I hope all of you have been enjoying your summer so far.  My family and I just got back from a relaxing vacation in upstate New York.  It was so nice to be all together, without commitments, having fun and enjoying the good life (i.e., scenic views of breathtaking mountains, lakes and of course, some delicious food). Well, it’s back to reality now, and I’m ready to share some of my favorite new creations with you.  This weekend I finally…

What’s more refreshing on a hot summer day than a cold glass of ice tea?   It’s over 95 degrees here in NJ and right now this chilled tea really hits the spot! Store bought ice teas can be loaded with sugar and artificial ingredients. It’s so easy to make your own with the fresh, natural ingredients you probably already have at home.  Besides, it tastes so much better! I purchased this adorable pitcher from CB2 a few months ago, and…

When I was a working as a clinical dietitian years ago, my husband was just beginning his surgical residency. We would often meet up on the surgical unit where I would be writing out my nutrition assessments and not before long, he was being called off to attend to some life-threatening emergency. I have to admit I often found myself feeling insignificant…that I really wasn’t making that much of an impact in people’s lives. Flash forward nearly 20 years and…
