Roasted Garlic Broccoli

Roasted Garlic Broccoli

When I was a kid I was convinced that I HATED broccoli. Now I am not a fan of that H word but I think that it was EXACTLY how I felt. I used to ask my parents for a dog so that it would eat the broccoli under the table without my mom knowing 🙂 Funny story, we got a dog when I was 12 and she also HATED broccoli…so I had to suck it up and eat it…either that or my mom would make peas…and that my friends was worse.

Team Nutrition Genius Invades Rochester!

Sassy and I have a hard time not talking. Our non-stop communication typically starts as soon as we roll out of bed. Seriously. Before 6:45 am last Friday morning Sassy and I were talking and we realized something wonderful- we were both free for the weekend. In a shocking turn of events that never happens to us we made the spontaneous decision to get together. Yes that’s right. Team Nutrition Genius invaded Rochester to bring you guys ALL the content. She got to Rochester Friday evening and of course our first order of business was eating so we went to Salina’s Mexican Restaurant at the Village Gate. We munched on some (gluten-free) corn tortilla chips with salsa (of course we asked for extra guacamole too) and had a delicious meal of chicken tacos and a lime shrimp salad.

Maple Sweet Potato Goodness


My love of Maple Syrup has developed over the past few years since moving to Upstate New York. I do not know much about how many maple trees are in the area but I know enough to know that Upstate NY along with New England and Vermont make a TON of maple syrup! JJ and I were driving home from Stratton, Vermont one day when  I made JJ stop abruptly and pull over when I saw a  farmer selling maple syrup and honey on the side of the road (good thing there was no one else around!)
