Mallory Hope Schwartz, founder of concierge nutritional planner HopefullyPlated, shares a healthy, seasonal recipe to add the perfect touch to your winter menu.
Turkey Butternut Squash Chili
1 lb. ground turkey
1 green pepper
2 cloves garlic
1 medium-size butternut squash
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 Tbsp. cumin
1 15 oz. can diced tomatoes, drained
1-2 Tbsp. tomato paste
1 cup chicken broth
Salt and pepper to taste
Brown the ground turkey. Add chopped pepper, onion, garlic and jalapeno. Stir for about 5 minutes on medium heat. Add chopped butternut squash. Stir another 5-10 minutes. Continue to add chili powder and cumin. Lastly, add drained diced tomatoes, tomato paste and chicken broth. Cover and simmer about 20-30 minutes until the squash is softened. Serve and enjoy!
3 Slim Sips
Brrr, baby! These cold-pressed juice bars around ATL will give you an energy boost—and help you look killer in that form-fitting sweater dress.
You won’t be sorry you sauntered right past Grindhouse Killer Burgers and headed straight for Rawesome Juicery while traipsing Auburn Market. Come spring, your bikini bod will all be thanks to What’s Up Doc (a blend of carrot, apple, sweet potato and cinnamon).
Aside from the health bennies and craveworthy taste, juices at Kale Me Crazy are just plain fun to say out loud. Kale Yeah! Chlorella de Vil! Beet’l Juice! We’re in.
One of Atlanta’s best-kept secrets—unless you’ve looked it up on Yelp—is downtown’s Aviva by Kameel. There’s rarely a line for the juice bar, which means no excuses for picking up the cup of heaven—known as Orange Sunshine—on your way to work.
3 Light Bites
Eating healthy doesn’t have to be a sacrifice. Hit one of these buzzy spots with friends without straying from your fitness goals. Just remember, noshing on healthy fare won’t negate all those cocktail calories—so stick to water if you can.
Saying no to the hot buttered lobster roll at The Big Ketch might be painful at first, but it’s love at first bite when you try the Buckhead locale’s low-cal Asian quinoa superfood bowl, a blend of quinoa, kale and colorful veggies like yellow beets and Brussels.
The seasonal flatbreads (like artichoke, fennel and goat cheese) at Seasons 52 are so good, you’ll forget they’re good for you. Go during happy hour for $5 small plates and sip a refreshing Bourbon Berry Bramble for only 220 calories.
Fast food doesn’t have to mean fries. Think grilled proteins and mixed greens, brown rice or a flatbread wrap in a flash at Gusto!, which opened its second ATL location on Ponce this summer. Vegetarians, rejoice: Grilled portabellas are a sweet swap for chicken.
