Recipe: Gazpacho

Post by Olivia Blodgett, Registered Dietitian

Today I harvested my first heirloom tomatoes (they are FINALLY ripening) and along with the hot forecast this week, I couldn’t think of a more timely recipe to share. It is so bright, beautiful and fresh and has turned me from a gazpacho skeptic to a gazpacho lover! I also wanted to take the opportunity to share some beautiful photos that https://ashliebehmphotography.com/ snapped of me preparing this dish recently. Hurry up and make it this week.. we don’t have much time left!

Recipe: Raspberry Scones

Post by Olivia Blodgett, Registered Dietitian

I’m obsessed with all things summer but I recently said to my husband that there are really two things I look forward to most: jumping into cold rivers and eating juicy, fresh berries. I can’t get enough berries and I’m pretty sure I’ve said so on this blog every summer since I started posting in 2012. I’m a serious picker and try to get enough to last me until the following spring. I mostly eat them fresh or frozen but I usually experiment with one or two recipes as well. I love this scone recipe that I adapted from loveandlemons.com. It’s super easy and highly adaptable. It’s been on weekly repeat in my household for a month now! Enjoy!

Recipe: Peanut Butter Chia Oat Bars

Post by Olivia Blodgett, Registered Dietitian

I have to admit, I love a good Rx bar, but homeade snacks are where its at in terms of cost effectiveness and nutrient profile. It’s so easy to customize homeade bars to whatever your nutrient needs may be: low sugar, high protein, high omega’s etc. One of my favorite nutrient dense snacks are my protein power balls, but I was ready to change it up a bit. These were quick, easy and tasty! Enjoy!
