Paleo Basil Chicken and Egg Lettuce Wraps Recipe >

On 04.25.2016 by Nam Nguyen

I will be the first to admit when I create recipes, practices such as low-fat, sugar-free, low-carb, or even gluten-free are not the first instinctive methods I lean towards. That’s not to say I am against living a healthy lifestyle—in fact, that’s far from it. But I do recognize that a strict regimen, quite frankly, takes me a lot of time and planning. I have met a bunch of folks who are quite skilled at it and it becomes their second nature. But for me, I tend to strive towards a practice of balance so I can enjoy a little decadence from time to time. For example, if I have a bacon cheeseburger for dinner today, I will have a salad for lunch tomorrow. For Read More >

On 03.03.2016 by Molly Bray Yunek

March is National Nutrition Month®, which makes this a perfect time to review some of the best recommendations for achieving a healthy diet. There is a lot of confusing and conflicting information when it comes to improving our eating habits. With new diet trends that focus on a “free-from” platform, it may seem that eating healthy is becoming increasingly complicated. We are being told to select foods that are free-from gluten and free-from dairy. There are dozens of other elements misleadingly being labeled as dangerous for our health. U.S. adults not getting enough fruits and veggies Let us take this opportunity during National Nutrition Month® to step back and practice the fundamentals of healthy eating.

How to Use Extra Egg Yolks or Egg Whites >

On 11.20.2015 by Sue Grossbauer, RD

Do holiday baking, eggnog-making, casseroles, entrees, and festive desserts leave you with an odd number of egg yolks or egg whites? Good news! You can store your yolks or whites and put them to use in other recipes. Yolks should be stored in an airtight container, refrigerated, and used within two days. Raw egg whites will keep a little longer than yolks in the fridge, and up to a year in the freezer. It is not recommended to freeze egg yolks. Here are some ideas for using extra egg yolks or extra egg whites. Using extra egg yolks Try the Safest Choice™ homemade aioli recipe, which uses 1 egg + 2 egg yolks for every batch. Aioli teams up perfectly with leftover sliced meats from Read More >
