If you think dietitians eat perfectly all the time, think again. Registered dietitian, Sandy Wolner, juggles a busy schedule, negotiates with picky eaters at home, and at the end of the day, just wants something chocolate.
People often ask her what they should be eating and what she eats at home. It was tough to narrow down her list of favorites, but in this episode of “In the Kitchen With Pampered Chef,” Sandy tells us about her favorite foods to cook with and eat. Her top five are all foods that are convenient, taste great, and keep her family well-fed during a busy week. Check out the video below to see why avocados, sweet potatoes, black beans, Greek yogurt, and Brussels sprouts are her personal favorites.
The Microwave Egg Cooker has excellent heat retention, so you can cook eggs, take them on-the-go, and eat them right from the ceramic container. It’s also perfect for oatmeal and mug cakes.
Because of the high heat and short cooking time, pressure-cooked food in the Quick Cooker retains more nutrients compared to other cooking methods. So healthier meals are faster and easier to make.
The Deluxe Cooking Blender not only gives you the smoothest smoothies, but it can also cook and blend your food in one appliance. Add the ingredients, select a setting, and press the wheel to start.
Cooking with stoneware couldn’t be simpler. The Deep Covered Baker goes in conventional and convection ovens, as well as your microwave. And, you don’t have to preheat or season it.
Sandy loves this recipe because it’s such a unique way to serve Brussels sprouts. Serve it as an appetizer, side dish, or even on toasted bread as a main dish.
Sandy’s Nutrition Tips
- Rinsing canned black beans can reduce their sodium by 40%.
- One cup of Brussels sprouts has more vitamin C than an orange.
- Avocados aren’t vegetables. They’re a fruit, but nutritionally should be thought of as a source of fat.
- Sweet potatoes aren’t high in sugar and have fewer carbohydrates than white potatoes.
- Use protein-rich Greek yogurt as a substitute for mayo or sour cream.
