HAPPY THING NO. 2 | ARTICHOKE SEASON

Artichokes

Who else is as excited as I am for artichoke season???

I snapped this pic the other day {with my new i phone 8+ in portrait mode~love it!} in front of my neighbor’s garden. I was super tempted to pick them ~ Shhh…don’t tell!

Now I’m dreaming up all the delicious ways I can use them, including in these Amazingly Addictive Artichoke Squares, this Spinach, Artichoke & Feta Strata, & this Artichoke-Rosemary Tart with a Polenta Crust.

What would YOU make with fresh artichokes???

HAPPY THING NO. 3 | BIG TEX’S BASEBALL SEASON

Please allow me a proud mama moment, as I share this pic of Big Tex and his high school baseball team. πŸ™‚

I love this pic because he posted it on his Instagram page the other day, and he rarely posts photos. He looks so happy {and I can rarely get him to smile in pics} because he pitched his 1st full game to lead his JV team, the CCA Ravens, to victory.

As a former softball pitcher with a couple of no-hitter under my belt {yep!} I can totally relate to the pressure you feel pitching. But all his team mates played a great game too!

They just wrapped up their season, and while they may not have had the best overall record in the league, they had so much fun playing together and supporting each other~they’re a great group of boys!

HAPPY THING NO. 4 | STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE SMOOTHIE

Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie

Meet my new fave high protein smoothie combo~yum!

To make it I blended 1 Daily Harvest Strawberry Cheesecake Sundae with 1 container of Good Culture plain cottage cheese, & Westsoy organic unsweetened soymilk. It was SO good, and super quick and easy to make.

If you haven’t tried Daily Harvest yet, you can learn more about all delicious ready-to-eat superfood smoothies, parfaits, overnight oats, sundaes, harvest bowls, and lattes here.

I keep a variety of Daily Harvest favorites in my freezer for those busy days when my family and I want something healthy and nourishing to eat when we’re on the go!

HAPPY THING NO. 5 | OLIVEWOOD GARDENS & THIS COCKTAIL

Dragonfruit Cocktail

Mr. Spicy & I had a fabulous evening at the Olivewood Gardens’ & Learning Center Seedling Soiree a couple of weeks ago, where I sipped on this delicious Dragonfruit cocktail.

It was our first time visiting the gardens, and I loved learning about their programs and mission…

…to empower students and families from diverse backgrounds to be healthy and active citizens through organic gardening, environmental stewardship, and nutrition education.

It was also fascinating to learn about the history of the house, gardens, and original owner/founder, Christy Walton {widow of John T. Walton,  the son of Walmart founder Sam Walton}, who started the organic gardens in the 1980’s. Christy and John’s son was diagnosed with cancer as a child, and they started growing organic vegetables and fruit for juicing to help him, as no other treatments panned out. Today her is healthy and cancer free in his 30’s. I love it!

I highly recommend a visit to Olivewood Gardens and Learning Center to tour the house and gardens, or take one on their gardening or cooking classes. The gardens are gorgeous!

  1. My friend & fellow dietitian, Jessica Levinson, wrote a great article on Alternative Gluten-Free Flours for Today’s Dietitian Magazine. My recipe for Green Banana Flour Brownie Bites is featured, plus you can learn about other alternative gluten-free flours, including sweet potato flour, pumpkin flour, wine flour, and coconut flour. Have you tried any of these flours? Any other ones not mentioned?
  2. I love this post from Nataly Kogan of happier–>Forty Things I Learned about Living Happier–a.k.a. a letter to My Daughter. Which one of these things can you relate to the most?
  3. With all the high carb, low carb, and “everything in-between carb” diets on the internet, it can sometimes be confusing about what to eat. This post from my friend & fellow integrative dietitian, Danielle Omar, should help clear up some carb-confusion. My take: I know some clients who do better on a lower carb diet, but I also have clients who consume a higher carb diet, and feel great. Bottom line: Before you cut way back on carbs, up the quality of your carbohydrates, and pair them with protein and healthy fats, then listen to your body, see how you feel, and adjust accordingly. If you need help figuring out the best diet for YOU, get in touch with me~I’d love to help!

  1. Any avocado toast is amazing in my book, but your version looks ridiculously good. I am also loving your “Happy Thing” number four. Smoothie + cheesecake = Heaven in my mouth!

  2. I have to say I absolutely love artichokes! I have never seen them as a plant though so that was really neat to see! I would probably sit and eat the choke with just regular garlic lemon aioli – my favorite way to enjoy an artichoke!

  3. Avocado toast is one of my favorites! But now that you added mushrooms plus other delicious ingredients, you just took it up a notch (way up!!!)! I am excited to give this a try!

  4. I’m loving the sound of these mushrooms with rosemary – I swear that is my favorite herb, it makes everything out of this world delicious! And congrats to your son and his team – I love that photo, too! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much Monica! I have fresh rosemary growing in my courtyard, so I use it whenever I can. SO glad to hear you liked the pic of my son too πŸ™‚ Cheers!

  5. I have never combined avocado with lentils. Really have to try it out. Thanks for sharing!

    By the way, you are missing avocados from your list of ingredients in the recipe! I thought someone must have noticed :0 which is why I went back to the recipe to see if I didn’t see them but they really aren’t there.

    1. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do Ashima! And, THANK YOU SO MUCH for pointing out the missing avocado ingredient from my Avocado Toast recipe~ha! I’ve just updated the recipe πŸ™‚ Much appreciated!
