It’s a new year and what better way to start than to announce my recent affiliation with Cooking Light! I am SO, so excited about this!! I have been asked to be apart of their Cooking Light Bloggers’ Connection where myself and other bloggers that share the same passion for healthy cooking and eating make up this new community- and I am so flattered to have been asked to be apart.
As a dietitian, there is so much nutrition information out there for me to read and keep up with. Everyday it seems like there is something new I’m hearing about or being asked about in my day to day practice of dietetics. Cooking Light has always been a resource of credible information for me to look back on, as well as enjoy. I usually get a subscription every year for Christmas, and it is among the highlights of my year to get the first one in January and read it cover to cover before the day is through. So, you can see why this makes me so excited.
Speaking of the January issue.. have you read through it yet? So many awesome recipes! I probably doggie-eared and proceeded to meal plan with the magazine in its entirety. CL introduced a new mobile feature this month- Scan It, Cook It! You literally download the Digimarc Discover App and scan the recipes in the magazine with the special logo. How simple and convenient!
Even with my ‘doggie-ear’ method to my madness, it was easy to scan and save the newest CL recipes to my recipe box online. Hello, genius. I totally need this in my life right now. I’ve discovered that meal planning with two infants in my lap isn’t as quick and easy as I’d hoped. I need all the help of ease I can get.
Enter this Super-Fast 20-minute meal. Because when your day is mapped out in three-hour increments, sometimes 20 minutes (or more like 3 minutes?) is all I get for eating. Plus.. I had fun scanning it into my phone to see if it actually worked.
And it did.. duh.
This was really delicious- quick and easy, just as promised! The magazine suggested to serve this as lettuce wraps or over rice.
I preferred to take the lettuce wrap route- there wasn’t a lot of sauce to soak the rice with.. and to be honest, rice isn’t my all time favorite grain to eat.
Be sure to check out this new scan and save feature in the January/February issue of Cooking Light magazine!
