Holiday Health and Weight Control Tips

As a dietitian, this is the one time of year where I feel like the "tips and tricks" could just keep coming out of the bag. The amount of dieting around (and right after) the holidays annoys me. Mindful eating people. Mindful eating. I'm not going to tell you skip the gravy and avoid the mashed potatoes. Because, let's get real...even in my book, it's all about the gravy, baby.

Loaded Sweet Potato Slices

I've been wanting to make my version of sweet potato skins all college football season long. Yet, for some reason or another, something got in the way...maybe it's because we could only watch a fraction of the games at my place (no cable in this chica's crib). College football season is wrapping up, so I figured I better make a move before bowl games are here again.

Pumpkin Chili

Hey pumpkin....I think we should start seeing other foods....

Or maybe not. 

My pumpkin love affair is still going strong. Pancakes. Pie. Oatmeal. Soup. Chili. There are officially no signs of slowing down... savory or sweet. Super healthy or a bit of an indulgence. There is always something pumpkin can meld itself into. This time around, it's chili.
About to enjoy some rustic chili...while it's still 80+ degrees outside...
