Many of you know I got married the weekend after graduating from Auburn University and started my dietetic internship that summer of 2010. We were blessed with lots of gifts including a fully stocked kitchen, but I really had no idea how to use these kitchen tools to prepare and cook a meal.
My Granny was a baker, cook, and from what I learned an idyllic housewife. She had 7 kids and raised them on a farm in Alabama so she obviously cooked a lot! My mom says there was always a dessert on the counter for the kids to eat when they had a sweet tooth and Granny would often cook elaborate family dinners. I can’t imagine how life was back then, but I sure like the slowness of the South.
Hi I’m Kristina LaRue, RD (registered dietitian nutritionist), Peloton addict and mama to two active and hungry boys. On Love & Zest, you’ll find healthy-ish recipes that fuel the whole family. I’m all about veggie-filled breakfast, meal prep recipes, healthier sweets, and easy weeknight dinners made in the Instant Pot or sheet pan.
Did you make one of my recipes?? Leave a review in the comments and tag @loveandzest #loveandzest on Instagram!
