About A Healthy Hint

Two food lovers sharing their love of nutrition through ingredient focused recipes and healthy hints

A Healthy Perspective: Yoga

One thing that is so imperative to our holistic health and wellness journey is considering our mental health in addition to our physical health. We love that we live in a time that preaches a mindset of mindfulness, gratitude and investing in yourself. Healthy eating and physical fitness are both so important to us, but we also recognize that your mental health is just as important. We wanted to share a few thoughts on Yoga, something we have both found a strong love for and how it has made a difference to our mental health.

Green Chili Quiche with Sweet Potato Crust

Here’s a fun dating tip: next time you are on a first date, ask them what their favorite type of French fry is. If they do not say sweet potato, they are a psychopath, and you should get out of there immediately. Sweet potatoes are one of our favorite carb sources, considering there is no bad way to prepare them. Whether it is extra crispy and diced up with a few eggs for breakfast, coated in salt in fry form with a juicy burger, or a simple baked sweet potato with a dollop of butter on its own, this ingredient is always so damn good.

Thai Chicken Zoodle Salad

In 2016, we discovered a beautiful little invention called the Spiralizer, and thus our love for zucchini was born. We went a little nuts creating pasta recipes with spiralized zucchini, or zoodles, instead of noodles. Nowadays, you can find pre spiralized vegetables everywhere, but the zucchini noodles are still our day one ride or die- and as a little knowledge bomb for you- they are actually a fruit instead of a veggie, botanically. They can be cooked or eaten raw, giving your dish great texture and color. Beyond that, they are full of health benefits while still keeping your meal interesting.

Our Healthy Go-To Costco Staples

One of our defining characteristics is our love- nay, PASSION- for Costco.  What do you get when you combine free samples, ever-changing bulk goods, and wholesale pricing? Perfection. Costco is one of our favorite places for grocery shopping (and honestly, sometimes just killing time while enjoying a well priced churro) so it only felt right that we make some healthy food recommendations for our readers. Despite not having family members to feed at this point in our lives, bulk grocery shopping still makes sense for us. We can effectively save money, stock up on our favorite food items, and get everything we need in one sweep without running to the grocery store all the time. Brace yourself: here are our top 20 healthy picks! Continue reading

Pomegranate Guacamole

As 20-something females, it is probably a given that we are really into avocados, right? Call us cliché, but we can’t get enough of this fruit’s (who would have guessed!?) creamy texture, flavor-enhancement ability, and uncanny power to make any weekday taco dinner a truly glorious one. It is only right that we create an avocado based recipe early on, since there is never a bad time for guacamole… or Mexican food, for that matter.

Almond Coconut Granola

We are notorious oat consumers. We put oats in EVERYTHING, from cookies to protein shakes to yogurt, and anything else we feel could use some extra texture. This means we think beyond breakfast with our oat passion, and bring them into lunches, dinner, snacks, and general food add-ons. We could go on and on about the multi purposes uses of oats, how they can be used in almost anything, and served warm, cold or dry but since no one has time for that, we will hit you with the basics.
