During the holiday season, it’s easy to overindulge. Sweets, fatty foods, and seasonal drinks surround us and threaten to undo all the good work we’ve done for our bodies over the past year. Luckily, we’ve spoken to Jessica Fishman Levinson – a registered dietitian nutritionist and the founder of Nutritioulicious. Nutritioulicious is a nutrition communications and consulting business designed to help individuals and corporate clients be the healthiest they can be. She is going to give you the inside scoop on how to stay healthy this winter with some delicious and nutritious recipes. Creamy Parsnip Pear Soup with Cranberry Coulis o This parsnip soup is creamy without the cream and gets a hint of sweetness from pears and maple syrup. Garnish with cranberry coulis for a pop of tartness and a festive showing. o Roasted Chicken with Fennel, Carrots, and Dried Plums o There’s nothing like a traditional roasted chicken, moist and juicy and full of aromatic flavors from herbs and spices. The fennel and carrots are roasted in the same pan as the chicken, which makes this an easy one pan meal, plus it keeps the vegetables moist and flavorful. The dried plums are stirred in towards the end of cooking and provide a sweet contrast to the more savory dish. o Spiced Plum Cauliflower Rice o Cauliflower florets are processed into rice-like granules to make a low-carb side dish that’s nutritious and delicious with some creaminess from coconut milk, sweetness from dried plums, zing from lemon zest and juice, and crunch from toasted almonds!
