The Tastemaker Top 10 with Deborah of Dietitian Debbie Dishes

The Tastemaker Top 10 is a collection of 10 questions asked by me and answered by some of my favorite bloggers. Here they will tell you a little bit about themselves, their blogs, and of course, their favorite foods and restaurants. Today's featured blogger is Deborah Davis, a registered dietitian and a fellow Chicago blogger behind Dietitian Debbie Dishes. I'm so excited to share her perspectives on healthy eating with you!

Name: Deborah Davis

Blog: Dietitian Debbie Dishes

Location: Chicago, IL

In a few sentences, tell us a little bit about your blog: Dietitian Debbie Dishes is a blog about making healthy eating more approachable. You'll find lots of healthy vegetarian recipes that are easy to make and focus on whole foods. Along with recipes, I also share helpful nutrition facts along the way.

Now, tell us about your...

1. Favorite meal, food, or cuisine:
Hmm... that's a tough one because I feel like it changes frequently! Right now, I am loving on tacos and homemade granola.

2. Least favorite meal, food, or cuisine:
Pork butt. I ordered it once at a restaurant thinking it would be like bacon - it's definitely not the same as bacon. Ha!

3. Favorite restaurant in your city:
 Antique Taco --> I seriously can't get enough of their fish tacos or kale salad!

4. Favorite restaurant outside of your city:
Before I moved to Chicago last year, I lived in Memphis for two years. I used to love the restaurant Trolley Stop Market. Honestly, there wasn't anything I didn't like there.

5. Favorite food memory: When I was little, I used to love sprinkling sugar on a plain piece of Wonder bread. Thinking back on it, that was completely weird. My taste preferences have definitely changed over the years!

6. Favorite guilty pleasure food: Cupcakes. Definitely cupcakes!

7. Favorite ingredient (something you love to cook with, or something you see on a menu and know you have to order): During the winter, I was on a huge Brussels sprouts kick and made this caramelized Brussels sprouts recipe every week. As a vegetarian, I am always trying to come up with new ways to prepare vegetarian protein staples like tempeh and tofu.

8. Favorite kitchen tool, utensil, product, etc.: Our Lodge cast iron enamel stock pot - we seriously use it for almost everything.

9. Favorite recipe: That's a tough one! I think my favorite of the moment is this recipe for honey roasted cinnamon almonds. They are so incredibly easy and almonds are a great, healthy snack! I also need to make these marinated mushroom and sweet potato tacos again ASAP!

10. Favorite thing about blogging: Making lots of yummy food and sharing it!

11. BONUS! Five favorite blogs/blogs that A Squared readers should know about: 
- Oh My Veggies --> Awesome resource for vegetarians!
- The Everygirl --> It has everything - style tips, career advice, and food!
- Joy the Baker --> She loves brown butter and has an awesome podcast.
- Cook Republic --> Gorgeous photos and great recipes.
- Love and Lemons --> Another blog for photo and food inspiration

Thanks so much for your thoughts, Deborah!
