Bacon + Egg Brussels Sprout Salad with Sweet Potato and Avocado >

On 10.18.2014 by Chris Cockren

Now I love my wife.  She’s an absolutely stunning woman with an equally huge and caring heart.

But people.  A perfectly soft cooked egg with a velvety, luscious yolk?  Now that’s the epitome of beauty.  It’s the Scarlett Johansson of the food world.  My wife would say Bradley Cooper.  Or Geoffrey Zakarian… she has a weird obsession with him.  I digress.

Point is… eggs are legit.  Especially on top of this epic gluten-free and paleo friendly salad.

And this isn’t your average lame side salad… some limp lettuce and bottled dressing with a few pathetic vegetables thrown in the mix. Heck no.  This Bacon and Egg Brussels Sprout Salad with Sweet Potato + Avocado has some serious flavor on flavor action going

Skinny Dipping: Increasing Fruit & Veggie Consumption with Dip >

On 10.17.2014 by Katie Clay

You may remember, like I do, being told repeatedly as a child to “eat your fruits and vegetables.” Some of us might remember sitting at the dinner table until our eyes closed and we fell asleep with our face in the Brussel sprouts. Long gone are those days but the goal of getting children to eat their vegetables is still an important one.

Today only one in five US children get the recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables. So how do we change that? I think there might be an opportunity in the fact that snacking among children has increased dramatically over the past 30 years. Today snacks make up a quarter of kids’ daily calorie consumption, but their snack foods of choice are not the healthiest

Pumpkin Bacon Grits with Poached Eggs >

On 09.22.2014 by Gina Matsoukas

I have a serious issue with the pumpkin craze starting in August. I blame Starbucks for 95% of this with the arrival of their pumpkin spice lattes before September even hits. I spent three months tending to tomato plants this summer and it’s like everyone just wants to forget about tomatoes now that they’re finally ready to be picked, give up sweet peaches, just skip right over zucchini and go straight to pumpkin. It drives me nuts and I refuse to give into it! Now that fall is here tomorrow though, I’m finally ready to do some pumpkin in a seasonally appropriate manner. So what better way than to start your morning with a big piping hot bowl of it?

I bought a container of grits recently and have become obsessed with their heartiness and just love using them as an oatmeal alternative in the

“What’s for Breakfast?” >

On 09.18.2014 by Chantel Arsenault

Ideally, that question sends images of fluffy pancakes, sizzling bacon, and sunny side up eggs dancing through your mind.

Unfortunately, for most of us, it only raises another question – “How much time have I got?” According to food and diet trend expert, Harry Balzer, 80% of Americans still eat breakfast at home, with 10% going out. Accounting for the final 10% are people who skip breakfast entirely. See the article on BBC >

Eggs = protein at breakfast

The good news is that a quick breakfast doesn’t need to skimp on flavor or satisfaction. The best way to get both is to involve the versatile, protein-packed egg.

No wonder it remains a breakfast staple even as we have less time to eat what our mothers told us was the most important meal of the

Quick and Easy Baked Huevos Rancheros >

On 08.27.2014 by Chris Cockren

Okay, really?  What the heck.  How is it the end of August already?!

It seems like just last week that I had that huge last day of school – first day of summer vacation teacher grin on my face.  Now it’s been replaced with those dreadful back to school commercials, constantly reminding me of the impending doom that is awaiting me as summer wanes down.

Another school year.

And another school year means way less time for breakfast.  But I’m determined this year to get my days started off right.  Goodbye scarfing down granola bars in the car, hello quick and easy baked huevos rancheros.
