Fresh avocado + plantain chips = ideal snack situation. Have you tried this combo yet? #DoGoodLiveWell @dogoodlivewell #Sponsored #nutritionhappens
A 6-ingredient oat flour flatbread made with @Quaker Old Fashioned Oats! [ad] This is exactly why I love using oats in recipes – they’re versatile enough for so many different dishes! I love these flatbreads because they are 100% whole-grain and a good source of fiber to help support a healthy digestive system. Plus, the hearty texture is perfect to hold your favorite toppings (also great to dip in your favorite spread, like hummus!) My suggested pairing? With a layer of pesto and roasted zucchini, yellow squash, asparagus, butternut squash, and microgreens. 15 minutes is all you need - full recipe in my bio link! #Quaker #NutritionHappens

Weekly health chat via @dogoodlivewell - this week = alternative legume-based pastas: currently trending and for good reason 🤞🏼 Fast and easy to prep and much higher in plant-based protein + fiber compared to traditional pasta. Nothing wrong with regular pasta but this is great way to switch it up, especially if you’re looking for meatless sources of protein and / or need a base ingredient for a simple, satisfying meal. Throw it together with some greens and a sauce and that could be your next lunch inspo 👋🏼 (sponsored) #dogoodlivewell #nutritionhappens
Daily greens 🍃 Everything/ whatever is in the fridge salads = at least 4/7 of my lunches a week. What about you - what’s for lunch? 🤓 #nutritionhappens
Fall versions of @siggisdairy triple cream yogurt bowls inspired by the season’s best fruits - including ROASTED grapes! Best roasted with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of flaked sea salt. The texture, taste, and creaminess of @siggi ’s triple cream is absolutely unbelievable: it’s not only lower in sugar but high in protein. Plus, the healthy fats help absorb all the vitamins from the produce and keeps you full (so you’re less likely to mindlessly graze!) Full link to recipe in bio - it only takes 15 minutes to roast! Need a bowl faster? Swipe for a bowl inspired by my favorite fall fruits: pomegranate, figs, and blackberries! [Sponsored] #DailySiggis #NutritionHappens
In a rush but still in the mood for sushi? Order @tabosushi for delivery online at @trycaviarchi 🍣
The usual breakfast 👋🏼 (ad) What’s your favorite type of oatmeal - Instant, Quick, Old Fashioned, or Steel Cut? My favorite way to eat oatmeal is still a classic bowl of hot @Quaker Old Fashioned Oats! All varieties of Quaker Oats are 100% wholegrain and ounce per ounce they offer vitamins and minerals like thiamin + magnesium. Simple, nutritious, and SO versatile - I like to chop up fresh mint and throw them in my oats with fresh berries! #QuakerOats #NutritionHappens
Do you usually eat microgreens? It’s honestly one of the easiest ways to add some nutrients in to anything you’re eating - I’m a fan of adding a handful to any salad or sandwich! (sponsored) #dogoodlivewell #nutritionhappens @dogoodlivewell
The most important meal of the day can also be the most delicious with @foodbyfare 's new breakfast menu. On the way to the office, stop by for an egg bowl, sandwich or wrap from 7:30–10:30 AM 🍳
[AD] Sharing some of my favorite @littlebluedynamos blueberry recipes on stories today and how to use blueberries all year round – even through the fall and winter! Besides just eating on them by the handfuls it’s versatile enough for both sweet or savory recipes (this blueberry avocado salsa with salmon over a flatbread is my go-to lately and it’s 💯) PLUS it’s packed with vitamin c + fiber + antioxidants that help support skin and brain health. Just one serving contains up to 14% of your daily fiber recommendations that help you stay fuller for longer. What’s your favorite way to eat them? #blueberrycouncilambassador #nutritionhappens #blueberries
How you know it’s going to be a good week 👋🏼😍 The great news about avocados is that you don’t have to buy them organic - similar to fruits with peels like mangoes and pineapples, they’ve been tested to have the lowest pesticide load and are the safest to eat when it comes to conventionally grown produce. The more you know 🤓 #nutritionhappens

One of our favorite health & wellness bloggers in Chicago, @chickpeainthecity , stopped in for lunch today! Check out what she had to say!! 😊 | very excited about this salmon tahini bowl from @foodbyfare with #vegan and #glutenfree oat chocolate chip cookies on the side 🍃🤞🏻 i’m usually not a sweets/cookies person (besides ice cream tbh) but these literally taste like breakfast cookies and are SO TASTY! if you haven’t checked out @foodbyfare in the loop you must — it’s like a hybrid between dig inn and sweetgreen. they make their own gf veggie patties (made of sweet potato and chickpeas), have a ton of df/gf/veg options and a smoothie with golden milk + collagen. yep i’m sold! ✨ // #chickpeainthecity #foodbyfare . . . . . #wsmchicago #Chicago #Loop #healthy #health #healthyfood #wellness #eatclean #chickpeainthecity #nutritionhappens #chicagofood #igerschicago #chigram #chicagofoodauthority #infatuationchi #eaterchicago #foodphotography #todayfood #alwayshungrychi #312food #mychicagopix #devourpower #sokophoto #chicagofooddude
I eat avocado toast for breakfast most days because it’s quick and easy and actually fills me up. Today I decided to just LOAD IT up• • • One slice of toast Half a ripe avocado One scrambled egg 2 grape tomatoes A pinch of spinach leaves A few mushrooms Sriracha for some spice What did you have for breakfast? #thefaithfeast
Today’s agenda: walk up and down the aisles of @target buying everything I don’t need but can’t live without. Jk. I walked out with orange juice and snap peas because it felt too weird leaving without buying anything. 🤷🏻‍♀️
Which one would you pick: cashew mojito energy bites, a green cashew magic dip, or the cashew chocolate mango bark? Hint: just take all three 🤞🏼Using just a base of raw whole cashews from the @WholeFoods , here are three different snack recipes — ready and prepped for the week! Easy, convenient and just SO good. Remember, all you need is just a few key high-quality pantry items to be prepared with tasty snacks for the week. I hope you love these recipes just as much as I do (full recipes in bio link!) and start making your own with your favorite ingredients from @WholeFoods. 🙌🏻 If you’re in Chicago, I’ll see you at the Lakeview #WholeFoodsMarket on Saturday, 9/8 from 11:00 am - 12:00 pm (Tickets are SOLD OUT!)

Need more snack ideas for the week? 👋🏼 Here is how I used a base of raw cashews from the @WholeFoods 365 Everyday Value line to make three different snack recipes for the week: a green cashew magic dip, cashew mojito energy bites, and an easy cashew mango dark chocolate bark.

3 ways to turn @siggi ’s 4% full-fat plain yogurt into a healthy complete meal, currently on the blog. (hint: add tasty vegetables and lots of flavor) For those days you feel like doing minimal cooking, these are the perfect combinations to try for a balanced plate. Plain yogurt is the perfect high protein base to use for these easy, nutrient packed combinations and siggi’s is not only made with simple ingredients, but it’s also lower in sugar - the 4% is super creamy and works perfectly in those combos with the addition of healthy fats to keep you satisfied 🙌🏻 Sponsored #DailySiggis #NutritionHappens #Partner
If you think you can’t meal prep snacks, think again! All you really need is a few simple ingredients, and you can have delicious snacks all week long! Having your own snacks can save you time, money and the frustration of not having healthy food around. The key to this is stocking up on a few basic high-quality ingredients that you can mix and match to keep things fun and interesting! I stock up on pantry essentials from @WholeFoods like nuts, seeds, dried fruit and precut veggies, so I can create a week’s worth of different healthy snacks that I know I’ll enjoy eating. And honestly, it doesn’t have to take more than 15 minutes. Because trust me, I get it - I don’t like spending too much time on meal prep either! So, I’ve teamed up with @WholeFoods to bring you my favorite (and simple!) snack recipes using cashews - THREE ways: a green magic dip, cashew mojito energy bites, and a cashew mango chocolate bark. Over the next week, I’ll be sharing the recipes and meal prep tips here and on @WholeFoods ’s website. ALSO if you’re in CHICAGO, I’m hosting an event at #WholeFoodsMarket Lakeview on Saturday, 9/8 from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm. We’ll be chatting about all things snacks and meal prep, AND making our own snacks using these exact ingredients.

#repost ! from @nutritionhappens : What’s for lunch today? 🤓 For me, most days are pretty simple (re: leftovers or an end of the week, everything in the fridge salad 🤷🏻‍♀️) but lately when I’m walking past @brownbagseafood , I’d pop in for something “quick” but still pretty healthy. I love that you can customize everything and it’s pretty balanced in terms of nutrition - perfect blend of protein / healthy fats / greens 🌱Though I’d definitely still rec the truffle Parmesan tots if you’re in the mood for a fun side 🤞🏼 #nutritionhappens . . . #brownbagseafood #chicago #312eats #312food #chicagofood #chicagoeats #seafoodlover #choosechicago #eaterchicago #chicagogram #chicagofoodauthority #infatuationchi #chicagobucketlist , #buzzfeedfood , #bestfoodchicago , #explorechicago #huffposttaste #fitspo #healthyfood #healthyeating #fish #nomnom #shrimp #lobster #seafood
Not even 11AM yet and I’m thinking about lunch 🤓 I keep a few cans of wild salmon stocked so I can build easy salads for lunch through the week: just pile on your favorite vegetables (or leftovers) + a sauce / dressing and you’ve got an easy lunch in 5 mins 👋🏼 #nutritionhappens
Wishing this was my breakfast today but sadly it’s not 😩 Have a bunch of errands to run so I’ve just had something quick to eat instead. The breakfast I wish I was eating right now was scrambled eggs with sautéed spinach, sundried tomatoes & onions on a bed of more spinach with already prepped sweet potato slices and a side of avocado 🥑 _______ #rd2be #nutrition #breakfast #eggs #veggies #avocado #sweetpotatoes #intuitiveeating #postworkout #protein #foodie #foodstagram #nutritionhappens #allfoodsfit #mindfulness #mindfuleating #positivenutrition #foodpositive
[ad] Rosemary and sundried tomato savory granola: FOR SURE one of the best snacks I’ve made so far this year. Made with @Quaker Old-Fashioned oats! Oats are one of the most convenient sources of fiber and this granola recipe is the perfect portable snack to toss in a sealable bag to-go. Each ½ cup serving of raw oats contain roughly 2g of soluble fiber, and research has shown that 3 grams of soluble fiber from oats daily, when part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may help lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk for heart disease. Crumble the clusters over a salad or soup for crunch or over plain yogurt of choice as a way to satisfy a savory craving. Plus, making homemade granola is a guaranteed way to make your house smell good for days! Link is directly in bio 🤓 #Quaker #NutritionHappens #QuakerOats
Lately I've been shifting my approach to wellness and general self improvement to what it's all really about: love and nourishment of the whole self - body, mind, and soul. May, of @nutritionhappens , embodies this holistic approach to nutrition and believes in respecting ourselves enough to care for our bodies while also being able to love and enjoy food. She believes we should each define our own version of health - one that includes dark chocolate and bread bowls! When I worked with her and @skirtpr on this shoot, she whipped up this amazing sourdough snack with greek yogurt, berries, and mint. She explained that sourdough is usually naturally gluten free because it's made with an fermented unrefined flour dough. They were every bit as good as they looked!! . May Zhu is a registered dietitian nutritionist who offers individual nutrition counseling as well as a variety of other wellness services. She is also as sweet as can be and so easy to talk to! Go check out her killer recipes and weekly tips (including behind the scenes on popular health brands) over at @nutritionhappens. . (This is not a sponsored post. I just adore sharing about women who are doing meaningful things and who have helped me on my journey!)💕
