One of the things I totally love about being a dietitian is connecting with other amazing dietitians across the country! Toby Amidor is a dietitian I admire and adore. She has been featured on Dr. Oz and has been quoted by dozens of health, fitness, and nutrition magazines, including: Oxygen Magazine, Dr. Oz The Good Life, Mic.com, Reader’s Digest, Shape.com, Women’s Health, Redbook, Men’s Journal, Huffington Post, Everyday Health, and more.
Last year, she published an awesome cookbook called The Healthy Meal-Prep Cookbook, which is filled to the brim of easy ways you can prepare your meals without stress. And now, she is about to publish another cookbook called the Easy 5-Ingredient Healthy Cookbook: Simple Recipes to make Healthy Eating Delicious. The book will be released April 3. I’m so excited—what’s better than the duo of easy and healthy?!
Here’s one of the recipe’s in the cookbook that I have had the pleasure of trying!
