    EP: # 1112: SUMMER SHORTS - Best Meals in a Jar: Salads, Soups, Rice Bowls and More with Tanya Linton

    EP: # 1112: SUMMER SHORTS - Best Meals in a Jar: Salads, Soups, Rice Bowls and More with Tanya Linton

    Lisa is joined by Tanya Linton who shares some great meals in a jar that include salads, soups, rice bowls, and more!  Tanya Linton is Director of Original Production at Home and Garden Television and oversees some of its most successful shows. She’s an accomplished writer and producer who is able to work across a variety of genres. She is also the co-author of The Ice Cream Bible.
    150 Best Meals in a Jar: Salads, Soups, Rice Bowls and More:
    Canning jars are perfect for a healthy and delicious salad. The dressing goes on the bottom, with heavier or harder ingredients making up the next layer(s), perhaps topped off with some fresh leafy greens. Everything stays crisp and separate until it is time to toss the salad in a bowl ready to serve and enjoy. 
    When made ahead these 150 tempting and innovative recipes last for days in the fridge for almost a week's worth of lunches and/or dinners. These "grab and go" salads are ideal on those harried weekday mornings or busy weekends. Tanya Linton includes creative snacks and breakfasts as well as a chapter devoted to rice bowls and even desserts. 
    Lettuce-based salads like Italian Salad (chopped salami, spicy green beans, white beans and Pecorino), Green Goddess (sugar snap peas, proper peas and edamame with hoisin chicken) or Sweet and Salty Salad (arugula, figs, buffalo mozzarella and prosciutto) are great for the whole family. 
    For something more hearty, there are also noodle and grain/legume based salads like Pasta Carbonara Salad (pasta, cooked eggs, cooked pancetta, baby arugula), Chicken Soup Salad (noodles, carrots, celery, chopped kale and chicken) and Layered Tabbouleh Salad (couscous, cucumber, tomatoes, parsley, onion). 
    For a dessert idea for an office celebration or a picnic, Pretty Pavlovas, Layed Cheater Chocolate Cheesecake and Banana Bread Parfait are favorites.

    EP #1111: SUMMER SHORTS -Easy & Delicious Ways to Increase Your Fiber with Liz Weiss, RD

    EP #1111: SUMMER SHORTS -Easy & Delicious Ways to Increase Your Fiber with Liz Weiss, RD

    Lisa is joined by Liz Weiss who shares some great ways to get more fiber in. your diet. 
    From www.lizshealthytable.com

    I’m a registered dietitian nutritionist, and I’ve been passionate about healthy food, family nutrition, and vibrant living for over 30 years. Helping you, your family, and the people around you discover the joy of wholesome and delicious food is not just my job—it’s my mission.
    I have two grown boys—Josh and Simon—and for years, I was up to my elbows tackling the daily grind of packing lunches, making endless visits to the grocery store, planning meals, and managing fussy eating. But I’m reporting here that the journey was fun and fulfilling, and my boys grew up to be adventurous eaters. Five family cookbooks later plus free recipes, online resources, and hundreds of podcast episodes, my boys have flown the coop and I’ve shifted my culinary and nutrition focus to a topic that’s near and dear to my heart and something we all need: longevity!
    Living an anti-aging lifestyle is all about moving our bodies more and choosing foods that fight conditions like heart disease and cancer, bolster brain health, and sharpen vision. To that end, I always try to practice what I preach. I walk (almost) every day, do yoga, and ride the stationary bike. I have a real food philosophy, which is all about adding food groups to the diet, not taking them away. No deprivation. I crave simplicity, colorful fruits and vegetables, and easy-to-find everyday ingredients that make mealtime a breeze.
    A bit about my background: After four years as an undergrad at the University of Rhode Island and a dietetic internship at the Oregon Health Sciences University, in 2004 I partnered with a friend to create Meal Makeover Moms, which received an incredible response from families and fellow health professionals and even won the 2015 Media Excellence Award from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics! We retired that site in 2017, and that’s when Liz’s Healthy Table was launched.

    Liz’s Healthy Table hosts a blog with exciting plant-forward recipes (yes, some include a small amount of animal protein!), including Cauliflower Mac & Cheese, Corny Salmon Cakes, Kale & Pine Nut Pesto, and Beef & Bean Tacos. And I have a new podcast called, EAT DRINK, LIVE LONGER, which features exciting longevity-themed food and nutrition episodes on the benefits of eating more pulses, pre-diabetes, and the anti-inflammatory diet.
