10 Vegetarian Ways to Eat Your Recommended Daily Protein — Protein 101

When I asked my coworkers what they know about protein, the first thing Lauren (a vegetarian) said was, “Everyone tells me that it’s impossible to get enough of it without meat.”

That’s quite a myth, actually. Meat and fish are certainly good sources of protein, but if you’re abstaining from them for any reason you can still easily eat your daily recommended servings of protein.

10 of My Favorite Meals to Bring to a Friend in Need — Recipes from Kitchn

Recently I’ve had quite a few friends who are going through tough times. Whether it’s a joyful transition, like a new baby; or a rough patch, like chemotherapy, I’ve found that the best thing I can do is to bring them food. After all, feeding someone in their time of need is one of the oldest, purest acts of love.

I look for recipes that are relatively easy, as well as nutritious and delicious — a win-win for you and your friend. I try to find food that’s comforting yet healthy (no plain chicken breasts, but no heart attacks on a plate, either), affordable, and easy to transport and store. It’s easy to default to pasta-and-canned-soup casseroles, but I’ve found it’s also nice to send something a little tastier and more nutritious.

Here are a few meals that have worked well — no casseroles included!

For some, Brussels sprouts can be a hard sell. Although the cruciferous veggie has gone mainstream over the years (we probably have bacon to thank for that), it’s always helpful to jazz them up a bit if you’re trying to incite enthusiasm.

Enter: these roasted Brussels sprouts with everything bagel spice.

Can You Freeze Leftover Egg Whites & Yolks? — Tips from The Kitchn

As much as I love making things like custardy ice cream and macarons, it drives me slightly nuts that you’re required to leave half the egg behind. I’ll diligently pour the remaining egg whites or yolks into a sealed container, tuck it away in the fridge, and then franticly begin searching for recipes to use the remainder before they go bad.

So I’m answering the question I asked a long time ago when I first found myself in this predicament: Can you freeze leftover egg whites and yolks? The simple answer is yes!
