Grass-fed Beef Shepherd’s Pie thumbnail

There’s something about the whole refined carbs meets additive-laden soup that doesn’t exactly make me wanna dig in. But, good casseroles are out there - both in terms of flavor and health benefits. Honestly, there’s a lot to love about one-pan meals when they taste good and are good for you! A variation of my […] Continue Reading

Balsamic Carrot Slaw thumbnail

Winter can make eating in-season produce a challenge. When I lived in a remote area of Alaska and everything “fresh” was shipped in (and I use the word fresh lightly here), I had to get creative to keep my vegetable intake up around this time of year. (Psst - You can read more about how […] Continue Reading

Garlicky Roasted Romanesco thumbnail

I have a thing for weird vegetables. Not just the bent carrots or funny-shaped squash, but the lesser-known varieties that you often can’t find at the regular grocery store. Part of the reason shopping at the farmers’ market is so fun is that you get to see some of these odd ball, heirloom vegetables that […] Continue Reading

Baby Broccoli with Bacon thumbnail

Fresh, local produce is my jam. Since I relocated back to the “lower 48,” I’ve been relishing all the tender veggies at my local farmers’ market. (And, of course, missing all the wild salmon and halibut from Alaska. You can't have it all, I s'pose.) There’s one farmer, in particular, who’s somehow managed to show […] Continue Reading

Green Beans with Macadamia Nuts and Thyme thumbnail

Green beans aren’t meant to be mushy, nor a dull shade of olive. And although I have a soft spot in my heart for the classic Thanksgiving green bean casserole (I mean, really, there’s something about that uber salty, canned soup-ness that takes me right back to childhood), there’s simply no excuse for limp, overcooked […] Continue Reading

Honey Lime Halibut thumbnail

I haven’t always been a fan of fish and seafood. I also don’t pretend to be a fisher(wo)man, but when you’re in Alaska, you kind of have to become one. When fish is as bountiful and delicious as it is up here (and when the rest of the goods in the grocery store are either […] Continue Reading

Zucchini Noodles with Garlic Avocado Sauce thumbnail

If you follow a gluten-free, grain-free, or low-carb diet, regular pasta is out of the equation. And if dairy is also out, you may as well kiss Italian food goodbye.. Thankfully, someone invented the spiralizer! >>> If you don’t have one, get on it already! I like this one because it’s inexpensive and doesn’t take […] Continue Reading

Thai Butternut Squash Soup thumbnail

The following recipe is the creation of nutrition student, Jillian Wagner, who’s been testing out some recipes to share here on Pilates Nutritionist. Without further ado, here’s Jillian: My college roommate, and fellow dietetics student, inspired this butternut squash soup recipe. We’re always trying out new recipes in our apartment and she’s into Thai-inspired flavors. […] Continue Reading

Curried Chicken Salad with Cranberries thumbnail

Every family has their go-to comfort food or traditional meal. Growing up, roasted chicken dinner was it. To this day, the sight and smell of a whole chicken roasting away in the oven brings back fond memories. Like most Sunday night dinners, you make more than you can eat - and that’s where repurposing the […] Continue Reading

Grass-fed Beef Meatballs and Zucchini Noodles

Spaghetti and meatballs. Classic. Comforting. Food for the soul. Buuuuut, not exactly the most healthful meal. For many of us (me included), the wheat in pasta causes bloating, gas, and for lack of a better term, digestive turmoil. And if you do better on a lower carb diet, even wheat-free/gluten-free noodles aren't the best option. […] Continue Reading
