HealthPointe 2.0 Cooking Demo

The HealthPointe 2.0 Cooking Demo was an even bigger success! HealthPointe 2.0 is a dietary program designed to help you learn how to eat healthy and maintain a healthy lifestyle of eating.  We took the list of foods and created healthy, gourmet recipes using SplenDishes Spice Blends.

We took a bland chicken breast and perked it up using SplenDishes Rosemary Lemon Salt, grilled it and served it over a hearty baby spinach salad filled with bell pepper, zucchini and cucumber, tossed with a light vinaigrette using SplenDishes House Seasoning.

We wowed the crowd with our Snapper Wraps, a healthy and tasty take on the fish taco. We spiced up a boring snapper filet with SplenDishes Mexican Blend, pan seared it and served in a lettuce cup, topped with a Cilantro Yogurt Sauce and a Pineapple Peach Salsa, both using SplenDishes Mexican Blend.

The Flank Steak Stir Fry was a hit too, we seasoned a flank steak using SplenDishes Asian Blend then grilled it. The steak was served over a bed of wok stir fried cabbage, bell pepper, carrot, onion and bean sprouts, tossed with a Ponzu sauce ( a citrus flavored soy sauce).

Most people think that diet = no dessert…Not true! We created desserts that satisfy that sweet tooth you may have, but are still healthy and good for you! Think grilled peaches with a dollup of Greek Yogurt, seasoned with SplenDishes Pumpkin Pie Spice, or grilled pineapple and banana with homemade white peach frozen yogurt and last but not least fresh berries served over the Greek Yogurt blend, then drizzled with a Balsamic reduction!!!

We sold out of all of our spice blends and had additional orders placed! We are looking forward to the next one already! Thank you to my sister, Lila, whom I couldn’t have done this without!
