A Chocolate Date Night

This Valentine’s Day say “I love you” with a romantic and healthy dinner for two that features the holiday’s classic treat – chocolate!

Chocolate and Your Health
Did you know that eating a small amount of dark chocolate may actually provide you with health benefits? Chocolate comes from the cacao plant, and cacao is a rich source of flavonoids, which act as an antioxidant. The antioxidants found in cocoa are similar to those found in red wine, some forms of tea, and cranberries, and are thought to have a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system. Dark chocolate and cocoa powder contain the highest concentrations of these antioxidants, but don’t’ forget they still contain fat, sugar, and calories. For this reason it is important to enjoy each in moderation.

Here is a fun way to add a sensible amount of antioxidant-rich dark chocolate and cocoa powder to your Valentine’s Day dinner.

Cocoa and Coffee Rub
This is a great way to flavor your favorite cut of meat without adding salt. Steak rubs work well with red meats because they will not interfere with the natural meat flavor. A rub should be applied right before cooking. You can make this rub ahead of time and store in the refrigerator. For this dish a lean cut of meat is recommended like flank steak, sirloin, or London broil.

  • 2 Tbsp ground coffee (unflavored)
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Combine the coffee, cocoa powder and cinnamon. Mix in a shallow dish. Rub the steak with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pat the rub onto all sides of the steak and grill.

Strawberry Salad with Balsamic Chocolate Dressing
The dressing for this salad does not include oil, making it low in total fat. Melted dark chocolate is used to balance the acidity of the balsamic vinegar.

  • 1 bag pre-washed baby field greens
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries

Dressing:

  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup (25g or two squares) dark chocolate, 75% pure

To make the dressing, add balsamic vinegar and sugar to a small saucepan over low heat until sugar dissolves. Remove pan from heat and add in chocolate until melted. Leave to cool at room temperature. Do not refrigerate or dressing will solidify. Toss strawberries and greens with dressing.

10 Tips to Cutting Calories!

Did you know cutting out just 100 calories a day can help you to lose 10 pounds a year? While that may not seem like much, it can be all it takes to kick start a healthier daily routine!

Here are some super easy tricks to cut calories daily.

  1. Choose popcorn over chips. A single serving of chips has over 150 calories, but you can have five cups of air-popped popcorn for only 100 calories!
  2. Try swapping egg whites instead of a whole egg in the morning. Three eggs (egg whites only) comes in at 100 calories, whereas three large eggs can come up to 215 calories.
  3. Instead of a bagel (300 calories and up) go for a whole grain English muffin, which has only 130 calories.
  4. Use nonstick spray instead of oil. One tablespoon of oil can pack up to 120 calories, while nonstick cooking spray is practically calorie free.
  5. Say no to sugary beverages and choose water or seltzer when possible.
  6. Swap out whole milk with skim for your coffee or cereal in the morning.
  7. Craving chocolate? Swap out chocolate ice cream for a low-fat chocolate pudding to save upwards of 70 calories or more.
  8. Love the taste of peanut butter? Try the powdered version! It provides the same taste without all the calories. Stir it into a smoothie or add to muffins or pancakes.
  9. Decrease alcohol intake by one drink and there goes 100 calories right there.
  10. Use cauliflower! Cauliflower is a great swap in recipes that need a creamy texture or a doughy feel. Did you know you can blend up the veggie and swap it for rice or even pizza dough? Click below for a delicious recipe provided by our culinary dietitian!

It’s not just a Smoothie, it’s a Smoothie Bowl!

Foodie fans have a new obsession and it’s as rich, creamy and delicious as you’d imagine – but guess what? It’s good for you, too! “Smoothie bowls,” as they’ve come to be known, are delicious mixtures that start out with many of the same ingredients found in a traditional smoothie, but are designed to be much thicker, served in a bowl and eaten with a spoon (not a straw!)

Recently, smoothie bowls have taken the food world by storm because not only are they fun and easy to make, but smoothie bowls can also offer a variety of health benefits as they are often made with healthy ingredients such as whole fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds.

What sets Smoothie Bowls apart from traditional smoothies?

The best smoothie bowls combine fruits and nutrient-rich green vegetables for a delicious result. Foods like avocado, nuts, hemp and chia seeds add thickness and creaminess to a bowl’s base while providing healthy fats and anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids to keep you filled up and fueled for hours. Low glycemic fruits like berries, cherries, apricots, apples and pears offer fruity flavor and beneficial nutrients while promoting stable blood sugar levels. Frozen fruit makes bowls especially thick and frosty. Finally, adding a handful or two of leafy greens like spinach, kale, or Swiss chard into your base blend lets you “sneak in” a serving of vegetables, without changing the fruity flavor you expect from a smoothie.

Better-For-You Breakfast Choice!

For people who crave a substantial breakfast, smoothie bowls are an awesome choice, combining the ease and nutrition of smoothies with the substance of more traditional fare. They’re tasty, toothsome, and when made with the right ingredients, loaded with excellent nutrients to fuel you through your morning. And since smoothie bowls use less liquid than traditional smoothies, they are thick enough to be eaten out of a bowl with a spoon. This makes them a great choice for die-hard cereal eaters who are looking to transition into healthier breakfast habits. Secondly, smoothie bowls are designed for toppings, as their dense consistency holds up to hearty ingredients like nuts and granola, which add crunch and texture while providing sustained energy, healthy fats, and enough protein to keep you feeling full throughout the day.

Not Just For Breakfast!

Best of all, smoothie bowls can be enjoyed anywhere and anytime. They’re a great meal choice for breakfast,  lunch, dinner or even a refreshing mid-day snack. All you need is a blender, some fresh ingredients and your imagination, and you’re on your way to making a great smoothie bowl that you and your entire family is sure to enjoy.

Tips for Following a Plant-Based Diet in the New Year

Tips for Following a Plant-Based Diet in the New Year

 

Interested in trying a plant-based diet but don’t know where to start? Read on for some basic tips to help you master your new year eating plan.

  • Plant-based is not “all or nothing.” You don’t have to go meat-free to be more plant-based. Treat meat and poultry as the side, instead of the main feature. Make vegetables, beans and grains the entrée.
  • Start with an appetizer. Start your meal with a soup or salad. It ensures veggies will be featured and provides a good way of slowing down the meal pace, too.
  • Go meatless one day a week. Take meat off the menu just once a week. Maybe you’ve heard of Meatless Monday? You can also choose other days of the week to think about a more plant-based diet. Tofu Tuesday? Walnutty Wednesday? Think about identifying one day each week where plant foods and plant proteins are front and center at every meal.
  • Nuts every day. Include nuts, like walnuts, each day in a simple way. Eat a few with your morning oatmeal or on your salad at lunch. Try them in a trail mix at snack time, as the coating for salmon or chicken, or mixed into a bean-based burger or stir-fry at dinner.
  • Swap in plant-based foods. Substitute or add chopped mushrooms and/or walnuts for meat in numerous dishes. Their textures and savory taste are perfect as meat substitutes.

There’s no need to overhaul your diet overnight, just start with a single meal or recipe, and then begin to incorporate more plant foods. Get started today with these delicious recipes from Walnuts.org.
