When it comes to dessert, it’s OK to be greedy. Make this single serving of chocolate pudding to spoil yourself with something sweet after a long day of sticking with a tricky diet. Your taste buds won’t know it’s anything other than a little bowl of bliss, but your body will thank you for the extra protein, fiber, antioxidants and omega-3s.

Crazy about chai? This wildly popular drink, made from black tea, milk and traditional Indian herbs and spices, is guzzled down by coffee-shop goers for its exotic, eye-opening flavor and irresistible creaminess.

Vegan baked goods often have a bad rap—turn out one “off” batch and no one will want to touch your “crumbly and dry” dairy-free desserts again. When it comes to cornbread—which can bake up dry even with dairy in the mix—making a moist, cake-like confection is tricky. I played around with a basic recipe to find the perfect blend of ingredients, which includes homemade flax “eggs,” rich coconut oil and your choice of maple syrup or agave.
Fresh figs are one of the world’s oldest known fruits, yet they’re often overlooked in today’s daily diets. This recipe offers an easy way to enjoy them—and the fiber, calcium and antioxidants they offer—as an unexpected breakfast treat or elegant party appetizer.
