Culinary Nutrition Roundup 3

We are in the thick of our Fall 2017 Culinary Nutrition Expert program and our students are still 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 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

“Sometimes I eat chocolate for breakfast. And I don’t feel guilty about it. One of the first things people say when they are on a diet is “gotta give up chocolate”. I’m here to tell you to eat it and eat it with confidence, spread it on pancakes, add it to smoothies. Eat up buttercup! Raw cacao is full of magnesium, iron and all sorts of other goodies. Hello less stress, better sleep and more energy . This Hemp Chocolate Spread is full of vitamins and brain boosting hemp hearts 💕.”

“Muffins don’t have to be unhealthy, but the ones you purchase through many of the drive thru places are. Learning to cook is the BEST gift you can give yourself and your health! These apple spice muffins are healthy + delicious … and they also happen to be gluten-free.”

“This week’s module is baking! To be honest I try not to bake all that often because I have low self control around certain baked goods (cookies) and I just prefer not to have these things around my house but it is nice to find different ways to make these types of food healthier. Thank goodness my friend was in Chi this weekend to taste test everything. I made the Super Berry Crumble and we both loved it. I served it with some Moroccan mint tea and a side of great conversation! Exactly how all sweets should be enjoyed!”

“Last homework assignment of this week. Gluten free apple and berry crumble. No refined sugar, just sweet honey. Ok, I opted for a lot of sweet honey.”
