foodisourfriend I'm not a coffee drinker nor do I pop those wack energy pills. I respect my sleep and mostly rely on music, water and food to keep me energized through the day. Chia seeds are rich in antioxidants, help regulate insulin levels, and are good quality carbs- I love to soak and blend a spoonful in my smoothies for an energy boost. How do you eat Chia? #foodisourfriend 1h

foodisourfriend Brown rice fettuccine smothered in fresh pesto - Toss packaged creamy sauces- you can make with olive oil and citrus, like lime, to break down starches in blood sugar, so blood sugar rises more slowly... and because fresh tastes better! #pasta #foodisourfriend 4d

foodisourfriend Instead of totally eliminating sugar from our diets, why not use fruits' natural sugars to work in our favor? Just posted 3 naturally sweet summer treats from our #meatlessmondaymeals class on the blog #foodisourfriend 2w

foodisourfriend (My fave #health tip: Have fun with food!) This fun mess is a stack of Hooked-Up Grilled Cheese Sourdough Sandwiches with Caramelized Mushrooms, Garlic & Eggplant.
Easy to make: Caramelize mushrooms, garlic and eggplant. Add veggies and cheese on sourdough slices. Hug slightly buttered bread together and grill 'til you can't wait any longer.

This is how I marry my guilty pleasure and healthier foods. You can search for the HOOKED-UP Grilled Cheese on the blog and use your favorite farmer's market ingredients to make it #tgifood #bts #foodisourfriend
