clean eating
By either cultural or nutritional hidden consequences, some foods are not as benign as you've been lead to believe. Why you should rethink making these “Superfoods” a staple of your daily diet.
Here on Dish + Drink, we publish a good deal of stories relating to a meatless diet. Thanks to resident vegetarians and vegans, we’re all learning more about what it’s like to lead a plant-based lifestyle. While I am not part of this group, I do look to make more conscious decisions than many Americans.
The flavor of spinach is much less potent than that of kale, and thus it can be masked more easily by the inclusion of some yogurt and fruit. With kale, this is not so, making it more difficult to blend a smoothie that tastes good enough to drink.
At this point, most people are aware that green tea offers a plethora of health benefits. What you may not know, though, is that in matcha, the benefits are heightened. When you drink green tea, you aren’t actually consuming the leaves. Matcha powder, however, is made up of the ground leaves.
Chia seeds have long been considered beneficial to nutrition. It wasn’t until recently, though, that I started finding them on offer in my local food stores. So, I did some snooping around to see how great the seeds really are. As it turns out, they’re pretty great; they contain high levels of fiber and protein, while they are also low in calories.
It is Buzz Week here on BTR, and the Magic Bullet has been touted for quite some time now as a kitchen must-have. Yes, it’s smaller than a blender, but I’m finding that it is equally handy. This is especially true because the cup used to mix ingredients is the same cup users can drink from.
More from the summer salad series brings a Mexican-inspired dish. At the forefront of this salad is spicy grilled shrimp, which pairs with refreshing spinach, cucumber, avocado, and red peppers. Skip Chipotle tonight and make this instead.
This simple, summery grilled chicken recipe requires just seven household ingredients to make. Fresh rosemary joins together with lime juice, garlic, and pepper to create an aromatic and zesty dinner that is healthy and easy to move from outdoors to indoors if the weather isn’t cooperating.
Is it possible to make dishes from the food delivery service without dairy? Most of the recipes contained cheese, butter, or eggs, even for those who choose the vegetarian option.
Along with the first official days of summer comes plenty of excitement on my end when it comes to exploring the farmer’s markets. Over the weekend, I came across spring onions, which I’ve not cooked with before. As you may have seen over the years on Dish + Drink, we’ve done a lot with onions of all kinds, but this one is pretty awesome.
One of the simplest warm weather dinners to prepare is a batch of homemade burgers. These healthy chicken burgers are packed with spinach and mushrooms, so you won’t have to feel guilty serving these to your family.
This grilling recipe features sesame seeds and a beautiful sashimi grade tuna steak. Serve alongside chili sweet potato chips for the perfect summer weather dinner.

Dish + Drink continues the salad series with this Spanish-inspired sweet and smoky spinach number. With a homemade dressing and an array of olives, this salad stands out from the pack.
A smoothie that contains nut protein, as well as whey protein and milk protein will certainly do the trick for a light, but filling breakfast. This one made with yogurt, almond milk, and protein powder has natural sugars as well.
