Roasted Asparagus & Cherry Tomatoes - InspiredRD.com

While in Dallas last weekend, I not only got to get my bliss on, but I also had some good hang out time with my sister.  As she was driving me to the airport yesterday, I realized we had failed to take a single photo together.  So I pulled out my iPhone and attempted to […]

Best Ever Veggie Dip

Almond Butter + Sriracha = Best Ever Veggie Dip from InspiredRD.com

I can’t take credit for this idea.  My friend and fellow celiac Shannon told me about this unlikely pairing last summer, and I have been devouring it ever since. Sounds weird, doesn’t it?  I promise, it’s so good.  Just be sure to portion some out on a plate, or you’ll end up eating the entire bowl. […]

I remember the first time I saw a bunch of rainbow carrots.  I was in awe of their beauty and couldn’t wait to see what they tasted like.  But I was afraid to mess them up.  How would I cook them?  Should I cook them?  Then I exhaled and realized I could buy more than […]

"Stay Healthy" Juice from InspiredRD.com

Joe finally woke up without a fever this morning, but he passed it right along to Leila.  So we started out another sick day at home with some Shirley Temple.  Unfortunately for all of us, the song she sings about animal crackers in her soup will be forever stuck in our heads. We took a […]

Turnip & Sweet Potato Pancakes from InspiredRD.com

Have you ever tasted a turnip?  Hey now, don’t turn up your nose at me (get it?).  I promise, they’re really quite good.  I had only tried them once or twice before as part of a root vegetable gratin, so when I found the bunch of turnips in my Agritopia CSA basket, I wondered what […]

French Breakfast Radish and Avocado on Toast

French Breakfast Radishes with Avocado on Toast from InspiredRD.com

One of the first things we planted in our community garden was a variety of radishes.  Not something I buy from the store very often, but surprisingly exciting to pull out of the ground and nibble on.  Our first few radishes were small, pulled up by tiny hands, beautifully pink and purple.  Joe and Leila […]

3 Great Recipes for Brussels Sprouts

3 great recipes for brussels sprouts from InspiredRD.com

The very first time I posted about brussels sprouts, they were still considered a “hated” vegetable.  Every time I mentioned them, noses would turn up in a wrinkle and for good reason.  The “haters” had only ever had their brussels sprouts over-cooked and steamed to death.  I didn’t blame them for turning up their noses.

Quick Kale Saute with Potatoes and Butternut Squash from www.InspiredRD.com

Before I was a dietitian, I was a waitress.  Serving food is something everyone should have to do once in their life.  It’s hard work, but the best money you can make as a teenager and college student.  I worked at many different restaurants including Chili’s, Bison Witches, and Ruby Tuesday.  Back in my Ruby […]

One of the questions I get from my Mamavation moms is, “Can I still eat potatoes?”. Somewhere along the way, most of you have probably been told potatoes are a “bad” food and you should stay away from them. I’m here to tell you they’re not as bad as you think. In fact, when you […]

Fermented Parsnips & How to Ferment Vegetables at Home via InspiredRD.com #reciperedux

When I saw the topic for this month’s Recipe Redux challenge, I had absolutely no idea where to start.  I have no experience making “Fermented Foods” at home, and didn’t even know it was possible.  When I started looking into the process, the food safety nerd came out in me as I worried about leaving […]
