Organic Harvest Month Interview with Toby Amidor, MS, RD

Thank you to my friends at Kashi for sponsoring this post!

Good morning! I have a fun interview to share with you guys today with fellow dietitian Toby Amidor. Toby Amidor, M.S., R.D., is a Kashi nutrition partner and author of The Greek Yogurt Kitchen: More Than 130 Delicious, Healthy Recipes for Every Meal of the Day. I’ve never met Toby before, but have followed her on social media for quite awhile, so I was excited to have the chance to interview her via Kashi in honor of Organic Harvest Month™.


I didn’t become passionate about buying organic until I went on a Blogger Barnstorming tour a few years ago. On that trip, I learned firsthand from farmers why they farm organically, how it affects the cows, crops, and their businesses, what is involved in getting that organic stamp on their products, and more. (If you’re interested in learning more specifics, check out my Organic Farming Q&A and Day on the Farms posts from that trip.)

It’s an approach that sounds remarkably simple, but it can Continue Reading …

Blog Brulee Recap


I spent the weekend in Vermont at a small dietitian blogger retreat called Blog Brûlée. I was honored to be at the event as a speaker (disclaimer: they covered my travel/lodging and compensated me for my time), but I feel like I learned just as much from the others in attendance as they (hopefully) learned from me. This conference will go Continue Reading …

Track Tuesday + Quick Dinner


Morning! I made one of my favorite easy dinners last night. Have you guys tried this yet? It’s so good and there are a ton of variations you can do! Just take some raw chicken breasts (tofu or a white fish would work too!), toss them in a cooking oil-sprayed pan, and cover them with some tomato sauce. (I usually use Muir Glen’s organic Continue Reading …
