My dietitian friend and co-author of Energy to Burn, Jenna A. Bell, PhD, RD, CSSD, blogs for Chicago Now. She just finished a wonderful series of posts featuring dietitians’ quick and easy holiday recipes. This is enough to get anyone inspired to cook well and eat well this Thanksgiving and into the New Year!
Here’s the story behind Jenna’s recent interest in recipes and cooking….
Of course, I want these recipes to be nutritious – you know, nutrient dense and veggie-heavy – but I also need them to be super easy. I’m not looking for fat-free (never am), but I want lots of phytonutrients, fiber and healthy fats from nuts and oils (not butters or cream, please!).
The recipes are RDs’ favorites and can be made with no more than five (repeat 5) ingredients. I also asked these amazing givers to throw in a line of nutrition advice.” –Jenna
