The WaffleWich: A Cool Way to Start the Day

Sunday, September 18th, 2011


Breakfast is not my favorite meal of the day (I know it should be, but I am just not a fan of breakfast food!), so when I was asked to create a video about fast & nutritious breakfasts, I had to get creative. By the way, I now create videos for the UCookbook column of an online magazine called Student Health 101, which provides health and wellness information for college students. I will post my recipes for the magazine at the beginning of each month when the magazine issues are published. Anyway, back to my creativity dilemma. Since I am not a breakfast lover, I decided to create something breakfast-y out of one of my favorite things to eat: sandwiches. Behold, the wafflewich, a breakfast sandwich made from whole grain waffles. And, because everyone has their own preferences, I came up with healthy recipes for both a savory and a sweet wafflewich.

Luck ‘o the Nutrients

Saturday, March 12th, 2011


Since St. Patrick’s Day is soon approaching, I thought it only appropriate to dedicate this week’s post to the holiday. Even though I’m part Irish, I’m not a big fan of corned beef or potatoes. So, I decided to go with an all green food theme (mostly green, anyway).

I thought I would try a recipe I came across for edamame hummus since hummus, which is typically made from garbanzo beans, is one of my favorite dips. Edamame, which is really just boiled green soybeans, is a great food choice (especially for vegetarians) because of its high protein content. As a plant-based food, edamame is surprisingly high in iron, a mineral that is necessary for storing and using oxygen. Not only that, it is also high in fiber with eight times as much fiber as steamed zucchini. And who doesn’t love a food product that’s low in calories and fat? (more…)
