Culinarian’s Day & Sundial’s Executive Chef Patrick Fitz

Today is Culinarian’s Day, a silly holiday all about celebrating anyone and everyone who cooks! In honor of this, I thought it would be only appropriate to pay tribute to someone who really knows his way around a kitchen: Sundial Beach Resort & Spa Executive Chef, Patrick Fitz.

Gluten: What is it? Where is it? Should I avoid it? What do I eat instead?

The World of Gluten can be really overwhelming. If you don’t have Celiac Disease or a gluten intolerance, you do not need to eliminate gluten entirely from your diet. However, cutting gluten from the areas of your diet where it does not need to be and making simple swaps will lead you to feeling and being healthier. Here’s my cheat sheet for getting to know what’s-what with this wheat protein.

Sundial BBQ Blowouts: A Great Way to Spend Your Saturday

If you’re looking for something to do this Saturday, or any Saturday over the summer, head over to Sundial and give the BBQ Blowout a try! Barbeques and cookouts are summer afternoon staples. This year, at Sundial Beach Resort & Spa, the staple came early with the introduction of weekly BBQ Blowouts. My family and I have spent more than one Saturday piling our plates and playing the afternoon away.

Delicious Low-Calorie Smoothies

This week, I found a great recipe for healthy smoothies in Women’s Health magazine! They offer five different recipes, but my favorite is the “Awesome Almond.” It includes only 233 calories and 8 grams of fat. With 6 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein, it kills your hunger and gives you energy for quite a while.
