Cooking at home means I get to control the ingredients and sneak in vegetables when possible. Everyone still gets to enjoy classic game-day eats, like guacamole, wings, chili, pizza and dip.

Healthy salad recipes pack in a lot of nutrients for not a lot of calories—as long as you pay attention to the ingredients. It's easy to come up with healthy salad recipes in the summer when the market is overflowing with summer-ripe tomatoes, loads of veggies and a variety of salad greens. But dinner salads can be just as delicious and satisfying in the cooler months. I just adjust the mix for the season.</p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/the_one_formula_you_need_to_make_a_killer_healthy_salad#comments Healthy Cooking Blog Recipes & Menus Carolyn Malcoun Tue, 29 Mar 2016 17:51:03 +0000 kurtschulitz 287864 at http://www.eatingwell.com The Most Genius Way to Cook Spaghetti Squash http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/the_most_genius_way_to_cook_spaghetti_squash <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/the_most_genius_way_to_cook_spaghetti_squash" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/MV9015_Ardito_700x700.png" alt="The Most Genius Way to Cook Spaghetti Squash Blog Post" title="The Most Genius Way to Cook Spaghetti Squash Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p> <strong><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/spaghetti_squash_lasagna_broccolini.html" target="_blank">Get the printable recipe for Spaghetti Squash Lasagna (pictured here)</a></strong> <strong>or</strong> <strong><a href="https://www.pinterest.com/pin/126663808248573451/" target="_blank">Pin It for Later</a>.</strong> </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/the_most_genius_way_to_cook_spaghetti_squash#comments Devon O'Brien Food Blog Healthy Cooking Blog Recipes & Menus - Dinner Ideas Dinner Wed, 27 Jan 2016 16:43:50 +0000 kurtschulitz 287364 at http://www.eatingwell.com Do I Really Need to Preheat My Oven? http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/do_i_really_need_to_preheat_my_oven <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/do_i_really_need_to_preheat_my_oven" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/holiday-baking.jpg" alt="Do I Really Need to Preheat My Oven?

But since I commute an hour a day and have a 3-year-old to feed ASAP when walking in the door (plus a hangry husband), I try to keep weeknight dinners to 30 minutes, tops. Since it takes about 15 minutes to peel, seed and cut up a whole one, squash is usually designated to weekend duty at my house. </p> <p>So discovering precut butternut squash was pretty awesome. And while convenience products can be more expensive, this one costs a mere $1.50 more to buy it already prepped, which is worth it to me and my weeknight sanity. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/how_to_shop_for_precut_butternut_squash_plus_4_fast_dinners#comments Healthy Cooking Blog Carolyn Malcoun Dinner What's in season Healthy Cooking Thu, 27 Aug 2015 16:30:20 +0000 kurtschulitz 286387 at http://www.eatingwell.com How To: Make Gluten-Free Baked Goods http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking/how_to_make_gluten_free_baked_goods <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking/how_to_make_gluten_free_baked_goods" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/SO15_Squash_0.png" alt="How To: Make Gluten-Free Baked Goods Blog Post" title="How To: Make Gluten-Free Baked Goods Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><!--<p><strong>What’s the simplest way to make baked goods gluten-free? </strong><br> —D. Clifton, Durham, NC</p>--> <p>Gluten—a combination of proteins found in wheat, rye and/or barley flour—gives structure and elasticity to baked goods. When you remove gluten, the support needed to lift and lighten the treats during baking is missing. The results can be dense, gummy or crumbly. The best gluten-free (GF) baked goods are made with a blend of GF flours, starches and often natural “gums,” such as xanthan gum, to replicate a traditional texture. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking/how_to_make_gluten_free_baked_goods#comments Healthy Cooking Blog Diet Stacy Fraser Diet, Nutrition & Health - Gluten Free Diet Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:28:38 +0000 kurtschulitz 286386 at http://www.eatingwell.com Soup's On: Making Super-Flavorful Chicken Soup http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/soups_on_making_super_flavorful_chicken_soup <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/soups_on_making_super_flavorful_chicken_soup" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/Soups_310_SO15.png" alt="Soup&amp;#039;s On: Making Super-Flavorful Chicken Soup Blog Post" title="Soup&amp;#039;s On: Making Super-Flavorful Chicken Soup Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>We’ve simmered down our favorite technique for making homemade chicken soup into one easy-to-follow changeable chicken soup recipe.
