Best of the Food Web: Healthy Eats

By Elizabeth Jarrard, Dietetics Student, Sargent College

Welcome to a new section of the Sargent Choice Blog! Every Wednesday this semester we will be posting about a new blog or cooking website that we love! The internet is filled with food websites, and our goal is to arm you with the “Best of the Food Web”!


We all know and love the Food Network. Whether you swear by Giada’s al dente pasta, or drool over Paula Dean’s deep-fried everything, the Food Network has crept it’s way into a normal part of most American’s days. At Sargent Choice our favorite part of the Food Network is their online blog, written by dietitians, called Healthy Eats. At Healthy Eats, fresh recipes and nutrition know-how are served up every day. Whether you’re looking for nutrition information (ex. Eat the rainbow! why you should eat your greens and easy ways to fit them in) fun food lists (10 ways to love peanut butter!) or a healthy recipes (try their lightened up banana bread), Healthy Eats is a wonderful resource. But be sure to save room for dessert, when you make your own girl scout cookies! Like Sargent Choice, Healthy Eats agrees that healthy eating doesn’t mean deprivation and crash diets — or even diets at all. All the recipes spotlighted come from Food Network’s great chefs, meet strict nutritional guidelines and feature wholesome ingredients such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, nuts and seeds, legumes, lean meats, seafood and healthy fats. So head on over to Healthy Eats and get cooking!

What’s your favorite thing about the Food Network?
