Northwood Nutrition BLOG
Hi! My name is Korrin and I'm a Dietitian and self proclaimed foodie.
I love to cook all kinds of food. I love to work with all kinds of people.
On my blog, I strive to share positive, inspiring stories & nutrition information. In addition to some real life events mixed in. Welcome!
Welcome to my little space on the web where I share my thoughts! I am 30 years old and I live north of Spokane with my husband and my two children. My goal for this blog is to share short stories, articles, or videos that peak my interest and hopefully generate thought and conversation among my readers. I am constantly thinking about how I can live a balanced, happy, more eco-conscious life and set an example for my kids.
Given that I am a Dietitian, many of the ways in which I think about things involves the food that we eat, how it is prepared and where it comes from. I also consider myself to be a nutrition nerd and I'm intrigued by research on food or eating behaviors especially as it relates to families and children. My passions and areas of interest include local food networks, cultural foods/dishes, budget friendly meals, farmers markets, amazing restaurants, gardening, cooking and creating in the kitchen, seed saving, and local/sustainably raised meats.
To start, I thought I would share an amazing dish that I recently discovered, Mejadra. This dish delivers incredible texture and flavor, utilizes simple and inexpensive ingredients and is fairly easy to prepare. All of the qualities that I look for in a favorite family meal. This recipe is very adaptable to what you may have on hand and is also vegetarian and vegan. There are numerous recipes online that you can try. Some very simple and others more complicated. I love the video below that goes into the specifics of cooking the onions and preparing the dish. If you think it looks good, put it on your meal plan and give it a try! You won't be sorry.
For comments: What do you think about the flavors in the dish? How do you think your family would like it? What are some interesting ingredients or herbs/spices you might add to bring out your own personality in the dish? (I was thinking some tangy, cold Raita on the side would complete the meal nicely).
Until next time, eat well!
