If you have picky eaters at your house, these tips are perfect for the entire family! Our friend, Annessa Chumbley, Registered Dietitian, joined us today with her must haves as a mom. Here’s more from her:

good2grow Organic MILK has these new, ready to go organic milks and they’re perfect for kids on the “moove.” That’s because both strawberry and chocolate flavors are great sources of vitamins A and D. They also have 8 grams of protein per serving. Bonus, I know my kiddos love these tops and they have over 200 collectible characters!

You can find good2grow’s Organic MILK at a Casey’s near you.  Tip: Stash them in your cooler. These are perfect for a summer road trip and you can feel good knowing that these have nothing artificial and they’re Non-GMO.

When it comes to family meal night, how can we elevate flavor without taking a shortcut on nutrition?

It’s tough to balance family and the pressures of a full-time job. Everyone is always trying to add more variety to our meals at home but that takes planning, and shopping. Pure farmland makes it easy. A delicious breakfast shortcut is using breakfast patties in this savory hash.

These grilled peach and meatball skewers just taste like summer! These are the best balance of “in season sweet” with Pure Farmland savory!

These delicious, plant based products are Non-GMO, made with complete soy protein and they’re all gluten and dairy free.

Pure farmland has kicked off year two of its Pure Growth Project. This is a grant program in support of neighborhood farms and gardens to increase the availability of fresh fruits and vegetables to communities everywhere. Eligible organizations can submit an application now until June 15th when you go to

Happy International Waffle Day! Today we were joined by Ben Gullett of Julian’s Recipe with a delicious recipe for a waffle topped with blueberries and brie. He also talks Frozen Food Month and the benefits of taking advantage of them.

Then Indy Style’s own Registerd Dietitian, Annessa, shows you how to easily make Chocolate & Peanut Butter Striped Waffles at home!

What makes frozen products so important and how can we use them in our recipes?

Keeping the freezer full of healthy and delicious foods has many advantages.

What I love about frozen food is:

Julian’s Recipe Blueberry & Brie Melt



  1. Combine the blueberries, lemon zest and sugar in a medium saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to simmer for about 5 minutes until the mixture has thickened.
  3. Place the butter in a grill pan over medium-high heat. Then place your waffles into the pan.
  4. Add 4-5 slices of brie cheese on top followed by a generous scoop of the blueberry compote.
  5. Add the second waffle on top and then flip! Allow 2-3 minutes per side or until golden.
  6. Serve while hot and enjoy!

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Striped Waffles

Just so you know, if you find dividing the batter into two bowls too labor intensive, simple put everything in one bowl! Your waffle will be a chocolate color instead of striped, but it will still have the same delicious chocolate + PB flavor. Yum!




1. First, mix the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients separately: in one bowl, whisk oat flour, baking powder, and kosher salt. In another bowl, whisk eggs, peanut butter, and maple syrup until smooth. Then add almond milk, whisking until well combined.

2. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture, pouring the wet mixture in and stirring until everything is well incorporated. Let the batter sit for 5 minutes to allow the oat flour to absorb the liquid.

3. To make half the batter chocolate and half the batter peanut butter, divide the batter in half. Stir the cocoa powder and chocolate chips into half of the batter, until the chocolate has been fully mixed in. In the other half of the batter, stir in the powdered peanut butter. Now you’re ready to make the waffles!

4. When your Belgian waffle maker is fully heated and ready to go, spray it lightly with nonstick spray and pour in about 1/2 – 3/4 cup of chocolate batter in the center, letting it spread just a bit. Then, take a 1/4 cup of the peanut butter batter and drizzle across the chocolate batter (or make polka dots, or swirls…whatever you like to do!) Close the waffle iron and cook for 3 1/2 minutes. Waffles are done when lightly browned and the edges are crispy.

5. Remove waffle and top the center with 2 tablespoons banana chunks and 1 tablespoon of toasted pecans. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of PB syrup if desired. Repeat for the other 3 waffles. Enjoy!


– To make oat flour, add whole rolled oats to a food processor, and process until a flour forms (it will still look a little grainy). You can make plenty of oat flour in batches and keep on hand for when you need it.

– Waffles can easily be frozen. Let cool on a baking sheet, then place them in a gallon sized zip-top bag. When ready to eat, remove one and either microwave or toast in the oven on a low broil until hot.

– If no pecans are on hand, use toasted peanuts or almonds

– Use this as a snack for your kids! Just cut the waffle into triangles, and they fit perfectly into their hands. We use peanut butter as a dip.
