Healthy Snack: Rosemary Flax Crackers

As usual, I’m on the hunt for recipes to make in my dehydrator. This time, I was dreaming of a protein-packed snack that would be filling and delicious, make good use of the organic flax seeds in my kitchen and increase my Omega-3 fatty acid intake. They were a success, but be prepared…you won’t be able to stop at just one.

Seasonal: Lemony Bulgur Wheat with Romanesco & Savoy Cabbage

I love lemon, so when I saw that this recipe called for lemon juice AND zest, I knew I would love it. The fresh flavor and smell brightens up pretty much every dish it’s in. And this was no exception– what could have been a bland version of bulgur and chickpeas became a bright, fresh and unique dish with the addition of lemon, olives and chopped dill.

Healthy Snack: Carrot & Parsnip “Chips”

These super simple “chips” are a great snack to have on hand all week long. I like to keep a little bag of them at my desk to stave off any afternoon cravings that might come up! They don’t take long to prep, and once you  pop them in the dehydrator you have you very own stash of “chips”!

Meatless Monday: Spinach & Fennel Split Pea Soup

This weekend, we found Nemo (the blizzard) so what else is there to do but cook up but a warm hearty soup? I love this recipe not only because it is delicious, but the addition of the spinach takes drab split pea soup and turns it into a bowl of gorgeous green.

Smart Sweet: The Best Granola Bar in the World

I recently purchased a dehydrator because I fell in love with kale and zucchini chips (stay tuned for the Zucchini recipe) and wanted to make them myself. But, if I was going to allow this behemoth (dehydrators are not small, people!) take up the valuable real estate of my NYC-sized counter top, then I needed to find more uses for it. Hello Granola Bars.
