Can you believe it’s almost Memorial Day? I certainly cannot! I know it’s been quiet for awhile here on the blog. When I sat down to write about all that has happened in such a short time, my heart swelled with gratitude. I have had the most unbelievable and amazing opportunities the last couple of years. I have changed in the most profound ways, my world view, my tastes in food, and I have a passion for traveling I never knew existed. I have been to 11 different countries, and I feel like I have had my eyes opened for the first time. Until 3 years ago I only knew of life in the US. I have traveled to different countries, but living overseas has forever changed me.
The time has come to go home. That even hurts to type in someways. I no longer will have to stop and think what language I need to say thank you or where is the restroom. By the way, no one knows what a restroom is overseas. Toilet, they understand. I won’t get to live under centuries old castles or visit places from medieval times over a long weekend. I don’t get to go to Paris for the weekend to take cooking classes and enjoy salad with my breakfast. I could go on and on.
The gifts and experiences I have had gave me a renewed passion and purpose. In my last months here, I met an incredible dietitian and fellow military spouse. We collaborated on something I have wanted to do for a while now. So we took the jump and started Hungry and Healthy, two dietitians cooking up healthy dishes on YouTube and Facebook. We were both annoyed at all the unhealthy recipe videos shared on Facebook so we started doing our own, showcasing how healthy can be quick and easy. Sarah and I have been overwhelmed with the response. Check us out and follow us for easy, delicious and healthy recipes. You can check out our intro video below.
This has also led to completely overhauling my vision and website here at Supermarket Nutrition. My passion for healthy choices at the supermarket has not waned but my strategy must. Over the next few months, I will be working on a new plan that is consistent and more streamlined.
My Recipe Redux posts will continue. I love collaborating and showcasing the creativity of other dietitians. This group has been amazing! I don’t want to leave you hanging without a recipe either. This month the theme is little bites. I almost laugh that is coincides with my move and all the changes I am making right now. I am certainly taking little bites of life right now, with my location, my purpose, and my vision.
With my return to the USA, I want to celebrate with something fun and perfect for Memorial Day! You can make this in a snap and have something beautiful and healthy on the table. This could be perfect as breakfast or dessert.
- 1 pint strawberries
- 1/2 cup blueberries

- Wash your berries and set aside to dry.
- Make a criss cross cut in the strawberries without going all the way through and set aside.

- Place the cheese mixture in a plastic sandwich bag and cut off the tip for piping.
