The weather in Chicago today has been completely unpredictable. With the Bears game delayed, the rain coming down, and a tornado warning in effect, I decided to keep cozy with some soup! Classic French Onion Soup is one of my favorite winter comfort foods. Yes, even dietitians enjoy comfort food once in a while in…in moderation of course. In my defense, it has been over 2...

After a long night at crossfit I enjoyed some  well deserved Vegetable Quinoa Winter Soup with Garlic Crostini for dinner!

Today’s crossfit WOD (for time): 30 air squats 15 front squats (55 – Rx was 65) 30 kettle bell...

Despite all of the chopping preparation that goes into this meal, this recipe is fairly easy. If you’re in a time crunch, chop the veggies ahead of time and store in the refrigerator until ready to cook! Can you believe that until today, I had never cooked with parsnips! The parsnip is a member of the root family and is related to the carrot. It basically looks like a white carrot, but has...

What a cloudy and cold day here in Chicago! You can’t even see the top of the Sear’s Tower (or Willis Tower if you will) because it completely consumed by the clouds! Today called for some warm butternut squash soup. Over the weekend I baked a small butternut squash for about 30 minutes in the over at 350 and saved the contents in my fridge for later in the week. Butternut Squash...
