Butternut Squash Agnolotti

Okay, first, do you love every single word in the recipe name? OMG yes! Butternut is a good friend of mine and a long-time Thanksgiving meal staple growing up. If you don’t know agnolotti, it is a type of ravioli – ravioli and I also go way back thanks to Chef Boyardee and this great restaurant in Brooklyn that I believe was called Cinzino’s (or something like that…). Then add kale (yes, how cliché, an RD who loves kale, I know), and brown butter sauce – heaven!!! Yes, please, get in my belly! Um, so it is safe to say I was just a bit excited going into this recipe. 

A Gift: Enjoy the Holidays without Sabotaging Your Health

Abracadabra – you’re thin!

It’s that time of year, I know. That time where every crazy idea about weight loss and getting ripped invades every media outlet in our lives.  Just this week, I’ve seen very disturbing ads. Disturbing on one hand because they are utter ridiculousness. Disturbing on the other hand because of people’s reactions to them… or should I say blind faith in them being their magic bullet for weight loss. Oh, yeah, without having to do anything except buy and use this magical new product.

It makes me sad because of all the bullshit out there and people peddling this type of bullshit should be ashamed of themselves.
