A fews weeks ago, I sent a survey to my readers and listeners asking all sorts of questions including: What's your biggest food or nutrition challenge, question, or concern? The comments came flooding in, and on today's podcast, I answer and address them. With help from my Boston University intern, Jordan Ball, this episode covers everything from meal planning and confusion over carbs to tips for getting quick and healthy meals on the table and strategies for cutting added sugar from the diet. . This show is action packed! I’m joined by my trusty sidekick, Jordan Ball, a Boston University nutrition grad student who is my intern. Jordan recently helped me create a reader survey where people shared their biggest food challenges and questions. Jordan has organized the questions, so she will ask them, and I’ll answer, but we will be sure to get her opinion, too. We will address everything from meal-planning tips to questions about carbs, along with ways to get your teens excited about eating vegetables and healthy family dinner ideas when you’re pressed for time. Show Highlights: Get to know Jordan better: she’s in the second year of a three-year program and wants to combine clinical work with a private practice as a dietitian; she currently tries out her cooking skills on her fiance How do I manage to include fruits and vegetables in a busy life? Buy pre-sliced produce, use canned or frozen incorporated into everyday meals, and consider batch prepping fresh vegetables to use in quick dishes. Is it advised to hide vegetables in recipes rather than be honest with a picky eater? Rather than hide them, incorporate vegetables into pancakes, smoothies, sauces, etc., and get the kids involved in meal planning and cooking. If you have a picky eater who only eats fruit, is that cause for concern? Aim for a variety of fruits, and try “food chaining” techniques. Is it bad to sneak veggies into family meals--when they just want pizza? Get the family involved in shopping for vegetables and preparing meals; try dips with familiar foods and vegetables, and try smoothies and pizza with veggies. What is the healthiest way to prepare vegetables? Are they better for you raw? Any way is fine because each vegetable counts; remember that fats help with the absorption of nutrients from vegetables. What are new, healthy, fast, tasty weeknight dinner ideas, along with interesting and quick lunch ideas? Utilize leftovers for easy lunches the next day; try “build-your-own” power bowls with assorted items. How can I prep my weekly meals on the weekend when I have more time? Use meal planning and prepping for a couple hours on Sunday; slice and dice produce and pre-package them in the refrigerator for later in the week. Do you have suggestions for nutritious after-school snacks or post-workout small dinners? Smoothies (use almond or dairy milk, nut butter, banana, protein powder or Greek yogurt, blueberries, and cocoa powder), quesadillas (cheese, black beans, leftover veggies, and salsa), peanut butter sandwich with sliced banana or apple, or sliced veggies with various Greek yogurt or hummus dips. What are some quick, nutritional meal ideas? Pasta with meatballs and sauce, pre-made salad, roasted broccoli, tuna/salmon cakes, and veggie burgers. Are meal delivery services worth the money? They are pricey and contain a lot of wasteful packaging, but they are an easy option to get kids involved in planning meals and cooking. How does batch cooking work? It’s easy to do with friends (in non-COVID times) and allows you to put meals in the freezer for later days; most recipes are easy to double and freeze for later. What can I throw together when I’m tired and haven’t planned ahead? One idea is frozen butternut squash cubes cooked in a saucepan, then blended with shredded cheese to make a sauce for baked potatoes, nachos, pasta, and roasted broccoli. How do I plan meals with variety that everyone will eat? Try “
