Rockstar of the Month: July 2019

Meet our July Rockstar, Joe!

Food For Thought: What is the Low FODMAP Diet?

As dietitians we are often asked our opinion on the latest diet craze, and enjoy researching (and sometimes debunking) these fads. This week let’s talk about one that has been getting a lot of press lately- the low FODMAP diet.

Recipe Challenge: Meaty Ratatouille

Celebrate the best of summer farmer’s market finds with this vegetable-centric summer dish. We’ve added some ground meat to the Enara version to give it a punch of protein.

Grocery Spotlight: Trader Joe’s Kettle-Cooked Chicken Soup

We are all for easy and balanced meals, and we often turn to Trader Joe’s to keep us inspired. This week, we feature a Grocery Store Tour staple (book your grocery tour with Mayble if you have yet to attend!), the Kettle Cooked Chicken Soup.

Food for Thought: Carbohydrates

These days “carbs” have gotten a bad rep. It seems like everyone has been on some form of a “low carb” diet. So what are carbs, and is avoiding carbs the best thing for our health?

Recipe Challenge: Shrimp Ceviche

Many of our patients have been making ceviche for a light, summer meal and we wanted to share a great recipe that is super easy to make but still feels fancy and exotic.

Grocery Spotlight: Trader Joe’s Seafood Blend

Stock your freezer with this seafood blend from TJ’s for an easy protein to top weeknight dinners.

Grocery Spotlight: TJ’s Carrot Spirals

We at Enara are really loving the whole veggie-pasta alternative trend. But who has time to spiralize all those vegetables?

Food for Thought: Is Salad Dressing a Do or Don’t?

Salad dressings. We love them and our dietitians love to take them away from us. Why can’t I add oil? Green goddess SOUNDS healthy so why isn’t it? Am I doomed to eat dry salads for eternity?

Recipe Challenge: Sun-Dried Tomato, Basil, and White Bean Burgers

This flavorful bean burger is easy to throw together and makes a delicious vegetarian main dish.

Grocery Spotlight: Trader Joe’s Steamed Lentils

This week, an oldie but goodie: TJ’s Steamed Lentils.

Food for Thought: Oils

“What type of oil should I use?” is a question we hear a lot from our patients. Today’s Food for Thought will discuss just that.

Rockstars of the Month: May 2019

Meet your May Rockstars, Karen and Diane!

Recipe Challenge: Pizza Spaghetti Pie
