Is it really almost Fall?  Crazy how time flies.  There are many who want to hold onto the last days of Summer.  For me, I am excited for Winter.  Yes, I am that crazy person who loves Winter.  Since we are heading into the Fall season.  That means it is time to devour tons of apples, and squash.  Here is a perfect recipe to keep things balanced in your life.  Grab a piece of apple pie, and a tall glass of Fall Harvest Fresh Juice.

In the past, steak has been something of a no-no for those of us watching our weight and/or our cholesterol levels, but recent research shows that the saturated fat present in the leaner cuts of red meat can be beneficial. Steak is rich in nutrients such as iron, zinc and B vitamins as well as protein. Just choose cuts which are lean, use a recipe that adds flavor rather than fat, and watch your portion size. So for those evenings when nothing else but a slab of beef, cooked to your liking, will hit the spot, here are some of the best cuts to pick.

Tenderloin

If you’re calorie counting, this is the leanest of all steaks. Tenderloin lives up to its name, and is also full of flavor. Of all your kitchen appliances, your grill is your best friend when cooking healthily. Just season your tenderloin to taste with salt and pepper and grill briefly to your liking. For underdone, cook for just 1 – 2 minutes per side: the steak should still feel springy to the touch. For medium rare, cook just a little longer, but don’t over-cook. Wondering what wine to pick? The big red wines will stand up best to the full-on beefiness of tenderloin. Try a Barolo, a Californian Cabernet or a Bordeaux to go with this flavorful cut of meat.

The last few weeks this blog has been sharing some serious blueberry love. For this post, how does blueberry and banana sound together? The combination of tart blueberries with the sweet bananas is a perfect balance of flavor. This snack is a modification from my Banana Bread with Greek Yogurt recipe. The major change to the recipe is the exclusion of refined sugar. Instead, the sweetness in the bites is from fresh fruit and honey. I believe it is snack time, let’s enjoy some Blueberry Lemon Banana Bites! Blueberry Lemon Banana Bites [click to continue…]
