As a registered and licensed dietitian, you can imagine how many times I’m asked, “So, Kristen, what do you eat to stay healthy?” You may have the notion that nutrition professionals are really strict with their diets and count every calorie. In reality, we’re not that neurotic. Just like you, I want my food to taste good and be quick and easy to prepare. In this video you’ll see exactly how simple healthy eating can be.
Breakfast: I often enjoy a big bowl of Kashi cereal with banana slices and cinnamon sprinkled on top for breakfast…or dinner. And no morning is complete without a good, creamy cup of coffee. I really don’t like my coffee black, but I’ve recently given up creamer for half and half — which has no sugar. So, I now add a packet of stevia to my java.
Lunch: The soup du jour is homemade spinach soup. For dessert, I sliced up an apple, sprinkled with cinnamon (again) and dipped the slices into a tablespoon of natural peanut butter. The health benefits of cinnamon are virtually endless and it tastes so good, so enjoy a little at every meal. Why not?
Dinner: Because we lost power for a few days, I was trying to eat up the food in our fridge before it spoiled. So…more soup! I prefer homemade, but this Pacific Natural Foods Organic Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Bisque is perfect in a pinch. I paired it with That’s How We Roll Party ‘tizers Gluten-Free Veggie Chips and a hard boiled egg for some wholesome protein.
