Happy National Nutrition Month! Savor the Flavor of Eating Right with my Endive Bites w/ Mediterranean Inspired Dips!

Happy National Nutrition Month!

Let’s all Savor the Flavor of Eating Right!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with National Nutrition Month (NNM) here is some information I pulled from the eatright.org website: 

“National Nutrition Month® is a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. In addition, National Nutrition Month® promotes the Academy and its members to the public and the media as the most valuable and credible source of timely, scientifically-based food and nutrition information.

Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day, also celebrated in March, increases awareness of registered dietitian nutritionists as the indispensable providers of food and nutrition services and recognizes RDNs for their commitment to helping people enjoy healthy lives.” For more information on NNM2016 click here

I am so happy to be sharing this recipe with you this week. It is full of flavor and SO colorful! Endive is a perfect substitution for chips and still have that same satisfying crunch! Endive — a member of the chicory family, which includes radicchio, escarole and frisee — can be served raw like in this recipe or cooked. Endive offers a crisp texture and sweet, nutty, mildly bitter flavor. Not only is it a great source of potassium, it is also just 1 calorie per leaf! (Yes – 1 calorie!) So be sure to ‘Savor the Flavor’ this month with these nutrient packed Mediterranean inspired Endive Bites 🙂

Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus Directions

I love endive bites or as i call them endive boats! I actually stuffed some with hummus and topped with pomegranate seeds for the Sabra Recipe ReDux contest a couple of months ago. Such a delicious snack and party food! Congrats on your segments too – you’re rocking it!
