Stephanie from That Certain Touch will be joining the Downtown Milford Farmers Market on June 9th and July 21st. She will be handing out recipes and talking with market attendees about healthy cooking.
Stephanie is a Dietetic Intern, Registered Diet Tech, Certified Lactation Counselor, and graduate of the UConn Didactic program in Dietetics. She previously worked as a Farm Apprentice learning about food production from start to finish. She is passionate to educate others on healthy eating habits to improve the overall health of our society.
Most importantly, she wants to make eating healthy easy, and fun and wants to get rid of the ‘dieting’ mentality.
Her interest in food started at a young age, as she was raised by a chef. As a young picky eater, her dad taught her the benefits of different foods to try to get her to broaden her palate. As an adult, she has witnessed the importance of maintaining a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Her goal in nutrition is to help individuals develop a happy and healthy relationship with food, starting from early in life. Her website www.ThatCertainTouch.com posts a wide variety of foods from salads to desserts. Stephanie believes that the best way to have a healthy, balanced diet is to truly enjoy all of your foods.
The best foods you can eat are fresh, in season, and locally grown.
"A balanced, mindful diet nourishes your body physically and mentally." -Stephanie
Receipe: Delicata Squash Tacos
1 small delicata squash
1 T olive oil
1 T adobo seasoning
1 cup black beans
1 T lemon juice
½ tsp coriander
½ tsp cumin
¼ tsp salt
4-6 tortillas, warmed
1 oz crumbled goat cheese
Minced red onion
Preheat oven to 400 F. Cut delicata squash in half long-wise, remove seeds, then into slice into half moons.
Place squash in a bowl, drizzle w/olive oil, and toss with seasoning. Cook on parchment paper for 15-20 minutes.
While roasting, combine black beans with lemon juice and spices. You can cook the beans in a small pot for a few minutes, but personally I prefer not to.
When squash is done roasting, assemble tortillas with all the fun things! It's really that easy!
