Four New Summer Recipes

By Nutritional Weight & Wellness Staff

Day in and day out, we counsel nutrition clients on how real food can heal our bodies and minds. However, too often the concept of eating real food (a balance of protein, fat and carbs, cutting out processed foods) is confusing to people after years (decades!) of inaccurate calorie counting and the low-fat message; that’s where The Weight & Wellness Way Cookbook and Nutrition Guide comes in.

Watch this short video with Teresa Wagner, a Nutritional Weight & Wellness dietitian, as she walks us through some of the book’s highlights and how it’s much more than just a cookbook.

To give you a taste (pun intended), here are four delicious recipes from the cookbook to try this summer for your next BBQ or dinner out on the deck.

  • Bison Burger – A twist on the classic burger that’ll become a new family favorite.
  • Zucchini Pancakes – A great side dish that uses up excess zucchini and get kiddos (and you) a bonus serving of veggies!
  • Collard Greens – A delicious way to up your veggie intake and a great addition to any BBQ.
  • Peach Crisp – A healthier alternative to the sugary sweets often associated with summertime.

Check out dozens more recipes like these in The Weight & Wellness Way Cookbook and Nutrition Guide. The book is also full of information on how to navigate food sensitives, how to best stock your kitchen and pantry, in addition to inspiring real life success stories of people whose health and life turned around with the help of real food. We’ve seen real food help produce stronger, less painful joints; balance hormones, jumpstart weight loss, strengthen immune systems, reduce depression, and the list goes on and on. Inspired? Start your own health success story with one of our cookbooks. If you have questions about your unique health history, our nutritionists and dietitians are always here to help.

Since stevia contains no carbs, can I substitute that for sugar in my foods.

Yes, Stevia can be a good sweetener alternative, be aware that stevia leaf extracts can be up to 250-300 times sweeter than sugar so you will need less then you think.
