Nutritious and Delicious Meal Inspiration from the Kitchen of a Registered Dietitian
The latest from the Radish
I recently had the opportunity to partner with Mariott Hotels and Resorts for their Travel Brilliantly contest. I crafted my ideal snack kit that would welcome hungry and health-minded guests to their rooms. My curated kit has the guests' wellness in mind-to ensure optimal fuel, rejuvenation, and a bump from the post-travel slump. Feeling inspired?

Summery soba noodle bowls with raw and roasted seasonal vegetables is the ideal simple and satiating end-of-summer meal. For this bowl, I tossed broccoli with cayenne pepper and chili powder to create a spicy coating and roasted until tender and slightly crisp. Thinly shredded raw zucchini and squash paired nicely with brown rice and wakame soba. To bring all the ingredients together, a quick lime and herb laced tahini sesame sauce was the ideal dressing for this light and summery bowl.
There is something to be said for the tranquility that cloaks the city during the last month of summer. Some may feel like “the leftovers”- left behind while the “others” leave in droves, a mass exodus to the various summer retreats. I typically find solace and comfort in the quiet and serenity of it all. It’s the feeling that somehow you are in on a little secret - that the city, which at times succumbs to lunacy and haste, has a softer and more mellow side. It is during the fleeting month that I find myself sauntering into a typically packed and popular restaurant at 8 p.m. on a Saturday night or get lost among the townhouses of the West Village without the droves of tourists trailing at my heels.
