Sometimes “just a bite” is enough to silence a sweet tooth or tide you over until your next meal. That’s when you need these quick-to-make morsels! In a matter of minutes, you can be munching on a mini-sized dessert or wholesome snack, made with superfoods raw cacao, raw honey and flax plus a blend of healthy nut butters.
Let’s face it. Going bunless is no fun. But just because you’re on a low-carb diet doesn’t mean you have to stop stacking your burgers. Thick-cut, grilled zucchini slices make a great bulky-bread substitute and add extra veggie flavor to these Italian-style turkey patties. If snow season’s got your grill buried, bake both in the oven. Bored with burgers? Use this recipe to make meatballs, or cradle cooked patties in lettuce for a creative wrap.
Pot pie is one of those comfort foods that warms our bellies and bones during the cold winter months.

Unexpected winter weather holidays call for golf course sledding and snow ball fights. Though these coconut-dusted protein balls aren’t made of real snow, the kids will certainly be fighting over who gets the last one. This recipe calls for six ingredients and requires only a little hand-rolling to shape into spheres — a completely child-friendly activity to help pass the time. Once you’re done shaping, freeze the protein bites for an ice-cold “snow” ball you can rest assure the kids won’t throw at each other.
Light, fluffy and full of flavor, quinoa cooks up a lot like rice, yet it’s richer in flavor (with a hint of nuttiness) and packs in more protein, fiber, iron, magnesium and other big-name minerals than a serving of your favorite brown grain. Toss it with colorful butternut squash cubes and crisp, delicate pomegranate seeds for a tasty side dish or healthy vegan lunch.
