Coconut Brown Rice Pudding

By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by USA Rice Federation and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

A delicious, hearty breakfast that can easily be transformed into a healthy dessert, {vegan} coconut brown rice pudding made in the slow cooker, spiced with cinnamon and minimally sweetened. 

When I saw the theme for the USDA Rice Federation contest via Recipe Redux, there was no question as to what I would make. A food from my childhood that I’ve never made and haven’t even eaten in years. Rice pudding.

Growing up, my family used to frequent this Greek restaurant that my Dad actually designed (he’s an architect). And besides always ordering the avgolemeno (lemon, chicken and rice) soup, I always used to ask for rice pudding at the end of my meal. And of course, I…

Vegan Kale and Mushroom Miso Soup

Packed with immune-boosting functional foods like miso, ginger, and mushrooms, this vegan kale and mushroom miso soup is one not to miss during the winter months. 

In case you ever catch me at a sushi bar, chances are I’ll have a gallon of miso soup in front of me. That and a veggie roll, obvi. But for real, I can’t get enough of miso soup during the winter when my immune system tends to be working on overdrive, trying to ward off any cold, flu, or virus I come into contact with.

This miso soup made with kale, shitake mushrooms, and ginger is immune-boosting and deliciously comforting. The miso packs in a lot of flavor that is complemented with the spicy ginger, the mild bitterness of the green onion and the nutty, salty gomashio seasoning. Plus, it’s super satisfying with the meaty texture of the mushrooms and the fiber and protein-packed buckwheat soba noodles.

Friday Foodie Dietitian Favorites (Favorites from 2014!)

This week on Friday Foodie Dietitian Favorites, I’m sharing all my fave moments, recipes, and posts from 2014!


I love taking some time in the days leading up to the New Year to reflect on the past year – the highlights and achievements – and let it really absorb. I think it’s important to reflect on our successes and failures – we can learn so much from both.

Taking this time to reflect on the previous year also sets us up to create some intentions and goals for the new year ahead. Last year, I set New Years Themes (inspired by my trip to Thailand last December). This year, I’ve identified my core desired feelings via The Desire Map and am creating intentions and goals around how I want to feel.


I hope you’ll take some time to think about all of the amazing…

Spiced Ambrosia Apple Butter: DIY Holiday Gift

Disclosure: I was asked to participate in the #iloveambrosia campaign as a member of the Healthy Aperture Blogger Network. I was compensated for my time and was gifted a dozen Ambrosia apples.

A fun DIY holiday foodie gift, this 4 ingredient spiced Ambrosia apple butter is quick and easy to make in the slow cooker and fun to dress up as a festive gift! 

An apple a day…


It’s crunchy. It’s sweet. It’s got fiber (hello satiety factor!). It’s packed with vitamins and minerals. And there’s ZERO prep time involved. Grab n’ go at it’s best.

I seriously eat apples erryday in the fall like it’s my job. In my next life, I hope to work at an apple orchard so it can quite literally be my job.

If I’m feeling really ambitious, I’ll spread some almond butter or PB on my apple. And…
