Try New Foods

posted January 3, 2016 by Moms in Tow (Kara)

Looking for some new, healthy recipies to try? My amazing foodie sister, Kelli Borgman, is a registered dietitian in West Michigan - and put together a few of her favorite recipies for us! Enjoy!

Butternut Squash Soup  

If you aren't into cutting up butternut squash, there are already diced freezer options at most stores, and some nicer produce sections stock it already cut up and ready to go.

This recipe freezes really well, too.

Gluten Free Pizza Crust

This would also be really good to make ahead of time and freeze so you have a quick dinner on hand. You can't go wrong with a simple fresh mozzarella and basil combo. Try it in mini sizes for the kids! 

Serve with salad (try this dressing, it's pretty easy to whip up)- I shake up mine in a mason jar.

Otherwise, Against the Grain is one of my fave gluten free brands at Nature's Market- this recipe is a copycat of theirs. They're a little pricey, which is why I sought out this recipe. Try any of their products in the freezer section,  you can't go wrong! They're all delicious. 

Dark Chocolate Bars

You do need a food processor for this one.
And now for the sweet side of life- I try to do healthy, homemade sweets to keep my sweet tooth happy while adding quick nutrition to my day. These bars are my new go-to. I like my chocolate dark, so these are the perfect sweetness for me, however, I can see adding a bit of maple syrup or more dates if you like yours sweeter. Try subbing dried cherries, mango or raisins for some/all the coconut would be yummy and perhaps a bit sweeter, too! The chia seeds are so good, I just loooove the texture of this, and with all those healthy fats and minerals it really satisfies! (Check out this link- dates for better birth?!). 

And a couple great recipes for the babes:
Apple + Butternut Squash //  Apple + Cranberries
