Some of us love hummus so much, using it as a dip just isn’t enough. Spread a thick layer on whole grain bread and top with lettuce for a quick and filling hummus fix! This veggie sandwich can be made in seconds — just use storebought all-natural hummus (hint: you can get it for less at Vitacost!). Bump up the nutrition with added sprouts, tomato slices or fresh toppings of your choice.

Break out the skillet! These sizzlin’-hot fajitas, made with garden-fresh veggies and chunks of white meat chicken, are the perfect way to spice up your summer dinner menu. Colorful, crunchy red peppers, cilantro and chili powder are nutritious additions that add zesty, authenthic south-of-the-border flavor. Got gluten-free guests? Skip the white flour tortillas and serve the corn kind instead.
Take a break from your usual mayo-smothered tuna salad sandwich lunch with this light dish made from whole grain pasta shells, cherry tomatoes and tuna tossed in olive oil and lemon juice.

Put down the phone. Guilt-free Chinese takeout is being made in-house tonight. You’ll enjoy the familiar flavors of soy, sesame and onion. But instead of the usual peanut sauce, spaghetti-style noodles are tossed with almond butter for a lighter, creamier taste. With a few extra veggies tossed in and a pair of chopsticks, you’ve got dinner in the bag…er, bowl.
It’s been a delicious (and healthy) year! Plates were piled high with colorful salads. Meatless Mondays trickled over into Tuesdays (and Wednesdays and Thursdays…). You kicked gluten to the curb. Burned out your blender on micro-greens smoothies. Fell harder in love with chocolate than you ever thought possible, once you tasted it raw.
