We are in the thick of our Fall 2018 Culinary Nutrition Expert program and our students are cooking up a storm! Some people think that culinary nutrition means we only sip on green juice and kale salads – but baked goods and treats can also be part of our diets when we use health-supportive ingredients. Our students have recently explored healthy baking – and were totally wowed by the results.
In this week’s kitchen roundup, we highlight some of the amazing goodies our students have created and shared.
Culinary Nutrition Roundup #3
Dina Mehren, Geneva IL, USA
“Homework for breakfast! I am a former confessed sugar addict. It’s amazing how you can change your taste buds. Even though this crumble only has a bit of honey, between that and the fruit I feel it. It was also delicious and an easy crowd pleaser!”
Geeta Sakhuja, Toronto ON, Canada
“Is it really indulging when this baby is actually grain-free, sugar-free and loaded with antioxidants? I think not!”
Rosemary Coehlo, Toronto ON, Canada
“Super Berry Fruit Crumble. This recipe is from @meghantelpner and I must say it’s absolutely delicious. I have my own Berry Crisp recipe that still needs a few tweaks and this recipe certainly gave me some inspiration.”
Cristina Arvizu, Rancho Santa Fe CA, USA
“Grain-Free Almond Bread & Hemp Chocolate Spread. Yuuuummy !”
Michele-Marie Beer, Toronto ON, Canada
“I got up early to do my homework this morning so I could enjoy the most decadent breakfast! My apartment smells heavenly!!”
Renee Mackey-Burson, Woodstock ON, Canada
“This bread is to die for!”
Anna Behman, Moorebank NSW, Australia
“After making Brazil nut milk, the leftover pulp went towards making these triple chocolate cookies with orange zest. I used cacao powder, melted cacao paste (alternatively cacao butter + cacao powder) and cacao nibs. Sweetened up with banana. I love how moist they are.”
Rose DeMarco, Woodbridge ON, Canada
“We all know the story of Little Red Riding Hood, right? Never mind eating Grandma! Mama should have packed this goodness in her daughter’s basket! One whiff of these golden, moist and delicious muffins and we may have had a whole different ending!”
Alex Kimble, Collingwood ON, Canada
“The Coconut Apple Muffins are amazing!!”
