DIY Ice Cream Sandwiches

DIY Wholesome Summertime Treats

Hello, everyone and happy summer! These hot days always make me crave one of my childhood favorite treats – ice cream! Even now as an adult and a dietitian I still enjoy a great ice cream on a hot summer day while keeping in mind good nutrition. Life is all about balance and I think we all can enjoy a sweet treat every once in a while without feeling guilty. One of my favorite picks is Kemps Vanilla Frozen Yogurt, with no sugar added. Not only does it satisfy my sweet tooth with it’s amazing flavor, but it’s no added sugar – yay!

Birthday Cheesecake

Indulge Yourself in National Cheesecake Day

No matter how you slice it, people around the world have a passion for cheesecake! Originating on the Greek island of Samos, simple ingredients like flour, wheat, honey and cheese, combined to make a cheesecake that was even served as a wedding cake. The Greeks considered cheesecake to be a good source of energy, and there is evidence that it was served to athletes during the first Olympic games in 776 B.C.[1] With such a glowing endorsement, it’s no wonder we’re celebrating National Cheesecake Day!

Enjoy All Things Irish & Green for St. Patrick’s Day!

March 17 marks St. Patrick’s Day! Saint Patrick’s Day originally was a religious feast day for the patron saint of Ireland[1]. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over 1,000 years[2]. It has become an international festival celebrating the culture of Ireland[1].  Surprisingly, the first parade held to honor St. Patrick’s Day took place not in Ireland but in the U.S.– in New York City[2]. Out of anywhere in the world, NYC even beats out Ireland themselves for the biggest St. Patrick’s Day celebration[3].
