Dining with the Doc: Savory Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins (Gluten Free)

#glutenfree #savorymuffins #thefoodiephysician

All of the flavors of a leisurely Sunday brunch baked into a muffin that’s perfect to take on the go. 

Now that my daughter Sienna has started preschool, our mornings have become quite a whirlwind as we get her ready for school and ourselves ready for work.  And like her mommy, Sienna definitely likes to sleep until the last possible minute!  So although I hope to be able to sit down to a nutritious, homemade breakfast as often as possible, the reality is that there will be plenty of days when I’ll need a faster breakfast option. Enter these delicious savory breakfast muffins!

I’ve been in a bit of denial about the back to school season.  Of course, I’ve seen all of the back to school stuff out at the stores over the past several weeks but I’ve been trying to hang on to the last days of summer.  You see, this is a big year for our family.  My daughter Sienna is starting preschool five days a week for the first time.  It feels like just yesterday that she was born and all of a sudden she’s all grown up and we’re shopping for backpacks and school supplies!  Can someone please slow down the clock?

Dining with the Doc: Strawberry Teriyaki Salmon Kebabs with Strawberry Jalapeño Salsa

Hold on to summer a little while longer and fire up the grill for my tasty Strawberry Teriyaki Salmon Kebabs.

In a recent post, I shared my Strawberry Jalapeño Salsa recipe and promised that it would make another appearance soon in a second recipe to pair with it.  Well, here it is- my Strawberry Teriyaki Salmon Kebabs.

I received free samples of Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by Zespri Kiwifruit and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

For the most recent Recipe Redux contest, we were challenged to “surprise and delight” with a recipe featuring Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit.  I was really excited to start experimenting in the kitchen because I’d never tried SunGold kiwifruit before.  This new variety of fruit is a natural cross between other gold varieties of kiwifruit (non-GMO) and is one of the fastest growing new fruits globally.  With their sweet flavor, pop of color, excellent nutritional profile and culinary versatility, these beauties are a must try! 

Cook Once, Eat Twice: Crispy Baked Avocado Fries

Crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside, these avocado fries are baked to golden perfection.

Move over French fries, there’s a new fry on the block!  Just when I thought avocados couldn’t get any better, I discovered these beauties.  Coated in panko breadcrumbs and baked to golden, crispy perfection, these crispy avocado fries are not only nutritious- they’re downright addictive!

I always have fresh strawberries in my fridge in the summertime when they’re at their peak.  Strawberries are my daughter’s favorite fruit and we love them too.  They’re so easy to incorporate into a wide variety of dishes, from breakfast to lunch, dinner, and of course, dessert.  And you can use them in both sweet and savory dishes.  Check out my post on 10 fun ways to use summer berries.

Dining with the Doc: Mixed Berry Coconut Shortcakes with Vanilla Greek Yogurt Cream

A healthier take on a classic summer dessert, these shortcakes are sure to please.

Can you believe it’s almost August already?  I feel like summer just started!  The other day I was at my local grocery store and the back to school stuff out was already out!  The end of summer tends to creep up on me even faster now that we live in Florida since schools start early here.  Growing up in New York, we had a little more time to enjoy the lazy days of summer since Labor Day traditionally signaled the start of school.

Dining with the Doc : Sweet Potato Caprese Sliders

Nutritious sweet potatoes and a classic summer salad come together in this elegant appetizer.

This month’s Recipe Redux theme is “Get your fruits and veggies in shape… Show us how you’re serving the bounty of gardens and orchards in shapes like ribbons, noodles, cut-outs, or other creative cuts.”  When I read this, my first thought was- perfect!  Finally, I had an excuse to pull my spiralizer out of the closet!  My husband Pete actually got it for me as a gift about a year ago and I think he’s (not so) secretly been a little disappointed that I haven’t been cranking out spiralized dishes every night for dinner.  It’s not that I don’t love my spiralizer- on the contrary, the first time I used it to make zucchini noodles (aka zoodles), they came out great!  The sad truth is that as a food blogger, I tend to get so bogged down with my blog schedule, that it’s hard to find time to just play around in the kitchen and experiment with new tools and recipes.  I know my fellow food bloggers can relate!

I love classic dishes but sometimes I like to break from tradition and spice them up a little.  My Chicken Salad with a Twist is one of those dishes.  I created this dish when I was looking for something to jazz up my basic chicken salad recipe.  I loved it so much, that I actually put the recipe in my Natural Pregnancy Cookbook.  And no, of course you don’t have to be pregnant to enjoy this dish or any of the dishes in the book!  It actually has over 125 of my best nutritious and wholesome recipes for anyone trying to lead a healthy lifestyle.

Ingredient 911: The Wonders of Olive Oil

People are always asking me for healthy eating tips.  What’s one of the best ways to make sure that you’re eating the right types of foods?  Cook at home!  When you cook at home, there’s no mystery involved.  You are the one controlling the ingredients and the cooking methods.  Healthy eating is not about following a restrictive diet and denying yourself the foods you love. It’s about eating a well-balanced diet filled with a wide variety of delicious and nutritious whole foods and leading an active, fulfilling lifestyle.
One of the most basic changes you can make to your every day cooking routine that can significantly improve your health is to cook with olive oil.
