The Ultimate Apple Recipe Roundup {RD Approved}

Apple season is upon us, who’s excited? This time of year has me anxious to go apple picking, drink hot apple cider, bake apple crisp (mom’s is the best though), and anything else that has to do with fall. So to celebrate all things apple, I’ve asked my fellow RD colleagues to share their best apple recipes and they sure did deliver! Here is The Ultimate Apple Recipe Roundup – excuse me while I wipe off this drool from my keyboard.

I feel honored to have been included among so many talented RDs and healthy living bloggers. The weekend left me feeling nothing short of inspired.

Mint Chocolate Chip

Mint Chocolate Chip Energy Bites

These Mint Chocolate Chip Energy Bites are filled with fresh mint to use up the last of the gardening season. A perfect sweet and salty breakfast or snack to be enjoyed all day long.

September is coming to an end (how did this happen??), so this means summer is just about over. There is so much to love about summer, but bring on the fall weather! I am an autumn lover, not only because of the birthday next month, but there’s something so cozy about sipping hot beverages, scarves and boots, and you can actually walk around without sweating profusely.

This also means that the summer gardening season is almost finished for the majority of us, unless you live in California, so in that case you have another three months (I miss that). This month’s Recipe Redux is all about storing away that last bit of produce in “heat-and-eat-from-the-freezer-meals, showing how convenient healthy freezer breakfast, lunch or dinners can be!”

I’m Going to Blog Brûlée

My attendance at the Blog Brûlée is partially funded by Sponsors of the Blog Brûlée, and I received a discounted registration to the event in exchange for writing this post. Opinions expressed are my own. I was not compensated for my time.” 

Hello all! Apologies for the lack of action here lately. As you might have already seen/heard, I’ve moved to the Big Apple just over a week ago, and things are still a bit hectic (but very good). I am thrilled to be moving into my new apartment and to finally feel settled. The food scene here is anything less than spectacular. I have been eating A LOT…but I also walk A LOT so it all balances out, right? I love eating out more than the next person, but I cannot wait to get into my own kitchen again with simple, nourishing meals/snacks.
