In this episode of the Healthy Family Project, we talk to Liz Weiss, cookbook author, blogger, dietitian, and host of the Liz’s Healthy Table podcast. Liz shares solutions for common mealtime struggles including strategies for picky eaters, meal planning hacks, food waste tips, and more.

Liz has two grown boys, teaches cooking classes to kids, and has a lot of experience helping parents get healthy and happy meals onto the family table. As an registered dietitian, Liz has been passionate about healthy food and family nutrition for over 20 years and has made helping families discover the joy of wholesome and delicious food her mission. 

Her podcast covers everything from fermented foods and why your family should eat them to the benefits of eating more beans. With new episodes published every two weeks featuring expert guests, Liz’s podcast is a great resource for families looking to eat healthier.

Healthy Bite Featuring Autumn Glory Apples

Today, we’re snacking on Autumn Glory apples! This unique apple variety has a very sweet, firm flesh with hints of cinnamon and subtle notes of caramel.

Our junior chefs, Charli and Mia, recently tested six delicious quesadilla combinations made with Autumn Glory apples. They’re so easy to make and perfect for an after-school snack or fun family dinner.
