Going green takes on new meaning with this simple, satisfying soup. Lightly steamed veggies, fresh herbs and a hint of your favorite healthy oil are pureed to a creamy consistency, then served warm or chilled for a revitalizing, nutrient-packed — and visually stunning — meal.
Why struggle to get your greens? This vegan veggie smoothie is a simple, refreshing way to squeeze in a serving—before you’ve even had lunch! Dairy free and powered up with flax and rice protein, it’s a healthy way to start your day, or sip as a snack when you’re in the mood for something sweet.
Chocolate cravings sometimes hit hard. When nothing can stop you, blend up a batch of this guilt-free, dairy-free pudding. Its creaminess comes from a “surprise” healthy ingredient: silky-smooth, whipped avocado! Mix in raw cacao and coconut for rich flavor, plus a sprinkle of cinnamon and vanilla for natural sweetness.
Most stuffed mushrooms are smothered by a heavy layer of melted cheese, but these tasty caps contain only a light mixture of quinoa, fresh veggies and a trio of healthy seeds (hemp, chia and sesame). Just scoop, fill and bake for an irresistible appetizer that not only tastes great but is great for you!
What do you get when you take a steamy, baked sweet potato, fluff it lightly with a fork and add a dollop of rich, nutty sunflower butter? An empty plate, of course! Serve this hearty, healthy mash in the skin, or scoop it out and pile high on a gluten-free roll for a sensational sandwich.
We all have dietary restrictions of some kind. Whether we’re looking for raw food recipes or just want a dish low in sodium, the search can be treacherous or, worse…tasteless! These quinoa cakes are full of flavor. Even better, they cater to vegan, gluten-free, low-sodium and low-sugar diets.
