Tortilla Soup

EAT, family meals By January 3, 2010 Tags: , , No Comments

With all the cooking baking and eating that has been done in the last month, something quick, delicious and nutritious is a welcome notion. This is, hands down one of the easiest tastiest soups around and can easily be doubled. With its simple ingredients you can share with your little one.

Healthy Chicken Fingers

EAT, family meals, snacks By January 1, 2010 Tags: , , , , No Comments

Kids adore chicken fingers and nuggets, but the deep-fried versions are terribly unhealthy.  The pre-made options that you grab in the grocery store may be easy, but the expense and lack of nutrition in most brands makes this quick dinner a poor choice.  Why not make a huge, heart-healthy batch yourself and freeze half, ensuring that you always have a quick and healthy option available?

Making Stock

EAT, family meals By December 26, 2009 Tags: , , 1 Comment

Too many bones and no dog to feed?  A turkey carcass that looks butchered?  Waste not, my dear.  Practice the secret of gourmet chefs everywhere.  Stock is an ideal way to extract nutrients and flavour from asparagus roots, beef bones and the parts of brocolli that people just don’t want to eat.  You can do stocks of vegetables, with meat or fish, and they are very simple.

Roasted Veggies

EAT, family meals By November 2, 2009 Tags: , No Comments

Fall is the time of year when we crave healthy, satisfying dinners. Root veggies are abundant at this time of year and can be prepared in lots of different ways.  A great way to eat root veggies is to roast them and use them as an accompaniment to a roast beef or chicken dish.  You can omit certain veggies if you don’t like them and add more of the ones that you do like.

This one is really simple (so simple the kids can do it) and potentially super healthy. In a bowl or glass, layer or mix healthy yogurt, granola and fruit. There are organic varieties of all three available. This is a great recipe for breakfast or a snack for kids and adults alike.

Cheating on Dinner

EAT, family meals By March 22, 2009 Tags: , , , No Comments

With meals this good, we certainly won’t say a word.  One of the golden rules of pregnancy is to stock your freezer for those first few months.  If you’re not the chef-type, or are simply too busy (or ill), you can still check this one off your list.  Dinnerworks and Fresh Dish allow you to assemble meals in advance – either in person or have them delivered to your door.
