Spring is here, which means summer is almost here! Warmer months means it's time to get back on the salad train. If you fell off, we totally understand - IT'S BEEN COLD! But let's get real, salads can be boring, and they can all taste the same, especially if you keep the same few greens and dressings on rotation. It's time to re-vamp your salads, so you can keep eating healthy and keep your taste buds happy.
I'm not sure what kid doesn't have memories of mixing up a box cake mix, after school or on the weekends, with mom supervising. Licking the spatula (even though now we know you're not supposed to...) and trying not to eat all the frosting while waiting not-so patiently for the cake to bake.
We know your lives are busy and thinking about what to make for breakfast, lunch and dinner every single day does not free up any time in your over-booked schedule. This month, we at Colavita are pairing up with Peroni Nastro Azzurro beer to bring you a meal planning and prep system that will please the whole family. Don't forget to pick up a 6 pack of Peroni (pairing notes below) for the over 21 and after 5pm crowd!
The sun is shining, the snow is melting—it’s that time of the year again! Are you dreading it or excited to start fresh? It’s all about organizing this time of year and getting rid of unwanted clutter.
Let’s start with the kitchen of course, it’s the heart of the home! And the heart of the kitchen is the pantry. It may be a little terrifying to start cleaning, but don’t worry, Colavita is here to help. We’ve created the perfect guide to all the necessities you’ll need in your pantry this spring. These items are healthy and—most importantly—versatile for all your spring recipe needs!
Keep the healthy motivation train going and be consistent with your healthy eating goals and lifestyle changes! Eating healthy should be a lifestyle, never a diet. Always be conscious, but never restrict yourself (too much!) from what you love and what you love to eat - like PASTA. This is why here at Colavita, we favor dishes that align with the Mediterranean Diet, the number 1 diet plan of this year! We believe in a lifestyle that celebrates fresh food and flavor, so do yourself a favor and start celebrating fresh food and a healthier lifestyle.
Valentine's Day is great and all, but it’s a day full of high expectations (AHH THE STRESS). You can only really celebrate if you're in a relationship, which doesn't make it very inclusive or very fun if you're not in one. This year at Colavita, we’re making the month of February a celebration of love and loving others, especially your friends! Going along with the Parks and Rec theme – TREAT YO SELF!—treat yo closest friends and gal pals on Galentine's Day with these delicious and healthy recipes.
The New Year is all about fresh starts and resolutions, but I think everyone can say we’ve all had resolutions we didn’t follow through with. Eating better is always a New Year's goal that is a lot easier said than done. This year at Colavita we’re taking a new approach, instead of "dieting", we want to incorporate healthy eating as a lifestyle and make it effortless. For January, we are focusing on healthy pasta soups to keep us warm and satisfied and healthy pasta dishes that incorporate lots of vegetables. Here's what we like:
Everyone is looking for ways to be healthier at this time of year. Diets are started and dropped, along with gym memberships. Here at Colavita, we promote the Mediterranean "diet", not so much as a diet (think calorie counting and restrictions), but as a lifestyle. In fact, US News and World Report lists the Mediterranean Diet as the NUMBER 1 diet plan to follow in 2019 because it is the healthiest overall and it's easy to follow.
