A pile of tender-crisp, steamed green beans makes the perfect side dish for just about any main course. Give yours a citrusy twist with a splash of sweet, tangy orange and lemon juices, plus a zesty kick from freshly ground black pepper and natural sea salt. Quick tip: For freshest flavor, don’t wash green beans until you’re ready to steam them. They’ll keep well in your refrigerator for up to a week.
I love chips. Lentil chips, potato chips, veggie chips, tortilla chips – it doesn’t matter, as long as it’s in crunchy, salty and within arm’s reach.
But lately, I’ve discovered a healthier way to curb those chip cravings — with homemade baked kale chips! They take only minutes to prepare and are packed with vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, potassium and other nutrients.
Just when you thought a cup of your favorite coffee couldn’t get any better—imagine it chilled, blended with vanilla frozen yogurt and given a tropical twist with coconut flakes! Try this dessert-worthy smoothie with Vitacost’s new premium line of organic and gourmet coffees: the Brew Collection. Choose from rich French Roast, nutty Hazelnut, classic Colombian, eye-opening Espresso and many more.
How many little plastic tubs of yogurt do your kids eat every week? Three? Five? More? While certainly convenient—and nutritious—the packaging is wasteful (if you don’t rinse and recycle), and you may encounter unwanted ingredients, especially if they’ve convinced you to buy one of the fun, colorful varieties they saw in that “cool” TV commercial. An easy solution is to simply make your own. I say simply because it really is easy to do!
Whether you’re trying to get something healthy into your kids’ bellies before they dash out the door to catch the school bus, or you’re attempting to feed your baby/pack his bag for daycare/take a conference call/flat-iron your hair all at the same time, one thing is certain: if you’re a mom, you need a few super-quick, healthy breakfast ideas in your back pocket.
Sweet smoothies hit the spot…most of the time. But if you’re craving something with a little more “kick,” try sipping this spicy drink instead. Greens and seeds come together with creamy almond butter and a dash of chipotle powder for a hearty, healthy brew with just the right amount of heat!
Have chicken left over from last night’s dinner? Turn it into today’s healthy lunch with a light chicken salad, eaten as is or tucked into a pita for a quick grab-and-go sandwich. Crunchy celery, diced apples and sweet, cool grapes create burst-in-your-mouth texture and gourmet flavor, while dairy-free mayo keeps the fat content low. Read more →
