Kindy's Musings....

Welcome to a new decade and a new year! With a new year comes new changes to the Family Meals newsletter. I will be focused specifically on whole-food based nutrition topics that will complement your family's meal choices and help you grow more and more in learning how to choose healthy nutrients for your family.

The Family Meals newsletter will be sent out on a monthly basis and continue to be supported by relevant, clinical research.

As your family dietitian, I will be sharing new products, recipes and resources that will help your family stay healthy.

I hope you continue to stay 'tuned-in' to health and stay subscribed to this continually growing healthy family meals email list.

If you do find that this new focus is not of interest to you, I understand and please keep referring others to join the mailings and have their own family dietitian!

Michelle Obama's Cause: Is it Obesity or Baby Fat?


Note: This recipe was contributed by Erin Marie from Washington state who entered it in the recipe contest on! Thanks Erin Marie!


2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 red bell pepper, cut into strips

1 yellow bell pepper cut into strips

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 cup grated or shredded cheddar cheese

1 package (1.6 oz.) McCormick's Buffalo Wing seasoning (other brand may be substituted)

8 medium/taco sized white corn tortillas

1 cup fresh spinach

Cooking spray

8 Tbsp. salsa of choice

8 tsp low-fat blue cheese salad dressing

Preheat oven to 350. Put boneless, skinless chicken breasts into a paper bag and add buffalo wing seasoning mix. Shake well to coat all pieces of chicken.

Bake chicken on a foil-lined baking sheet for 45 minutes or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.

Spray skillet with cooking spray and sautee peppers and garlic over medium heat, stirring frequently, until peppers have wilted slightly but are still firm and garlic is translucent, about 5 minutes.

Cut chicken into strips. Spray tortillas on both sides with cooking spray. First heat one side over medium-low heat for 30-45 seconds, then flip tortilla over and sprinkle with 1 oz. shredded cheddar cheese. Top with 1/4 lb. chicken strips, sauteed peppers and garlic, adding spinach leaves last. Leave in skillet just long enough for cheese to melt.

Transfer taco to serving plate and top with 1 tablespoon salsa of choice and drizzle with 1 teaspoon low-fat blue cheese salad dressing.

Low-fat and full of flavors!
