Remembering the Super Bowl

Image

The Super Bowl provided me with a perfect opportunity to enjoy sports and host a party. It was the best of both worlds for me, sports and food, lots of it. I narrowed down the food option to various cold finger foods. They are easy to prepare, do not require attention while the game is on and are easy to eat.

FINGER FOODS BY CHOICE

Vegetable Pinwheel, a favorite at our parties.

  • light cream cheese,
  • diced green onions,
  • diced green and red bell peppers
  • diced broccoli.

Add cream cheese to the vegetables and toss.

Spread onto a tortilla and cut into bite size pieces.

Baked Jalapeño.

  • light cream cheese
  • diced yellow bell peppers
  • shredded cheese(any variety)

Cut the jalapeños in half and cleaned out the seeds to create a semi cup.  Add light cream cheese to the diced yellow bell peppers. Spread filling into the jalapeños  halves.  Sprinkle shredded cheese on top and bake in oven until melted.

The Mystery of Kalo

What is “Kalo”?  it is what the Hawaiians call “taro”.  Each day brings me new discoveries and new people.  Such was so on Saturday night.  Darryl and I were strolling hand in hand on this beautiful misty night.  As the rain came down harder we ran into one of the markets to keep from getting too wet.  That’s when I met Torry Tukuafu, the producer of I am Haloa.  This feature length documentary film about Hawaiian culture, as understood through the story of Holoa, tells the story of three high school seniors who embark on a journey of self-discovery.   I was so excited about his project, that I bought a shirt and a book to support his project.  As a nutritionist the more I learn about “taro”, the greater my appreciation for its nutritional value.  When I meet a “native Hawaiian” his understanding of nature is so pure.  His desire to live in harmony with nature is overwhelming.  Although I may not agree with his definition of the origin of oceans, land, fire, water, man, and plants,  I marvel at his simplistic appreciation for life.  I can’t wait for “I am Haloa” to be completed.

Nutrition In The Now

I am a Registered Dietitian and I thought I would be fun to write about one day in the life of a dietitian. I’ve been practicing in my field for 30 years. It’s hard to believe the time has gone so quickly. The changes in people nearly knocks me off my feet.

Nutrition In The Now

Not only do dietitians teach you about healthy foods, we help you create healthy dishes.  We at Nutrition In The Now have discovered the health benefits of  natural herbs and spices.  I have discovered the flavors of seeds and last spring planted an herb garden.  If you have never cooked with nature’s seeds or created your on spice combination, you have missed the opportunity to awaken the flavors in your traditional dish.  Turn your beef, chicken or poultry dish into a hot romantic sultry experience that takes your breathe away.   I used cardamon, Himalayan salt and a Turkish blend from Turkey over grilled turnip roots and kohlrabi.
