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 with Zucchini Noodles thumbnail

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

Rutabaga Fries thumbnail

With the growing season winding down, it’s time to make friends with hearty root vegetables again. Though, chances are, you never befriended rutabaga in the first place (how rude!). I get it. He’s a modest fellow that just can’t keep up with dainty microgreens or shiny bell peppers. But flavor-wise, these unassuming “yellow turnips” are […] Continue Reading

Wild Salmon Ceviche thumbnail

You know those meals that are sooo good you can’t help but say out loud - with your mouth stuffed, no less Oh my gawd. This is amazing!” THIS was one of those meals. I even texted a photo to my friend, mid-meal, to share my excitement. You should DEFINITELY make this if you can […] Continue Reading

Wild Pea and Kale Soup thumbnail

Anyone else mourning the end of summer? I know the autumn equinox is only a few weeks away, but it sure feels like fall in Alaska. The lush green mountains are quickly turning brown and as I move my foraging efforts to the last of the blueberries and the (finally ripening) lingonberries, I reflect on […] Continue Reading

Sesame Ginger Kale Salad thumbnail

I used to think kale was gross. It was tough, bitter, and seemed to suck the flavor out of anything I cooked with it. Little did I know, I was just eating the wrong kind. Yes, friends, there is more than one type of kale. And the most popular curly-leaf kale is the least delicious […] Continue Reading
