Food is everywhere during the holidays. If you’re like everyone else, you don’t want to miss out on the fun treats all around. To avoid overindulging, it’s a good idea to keep plenty of delicious and nutritious snacks on hand. That way, you’ll feel satisfied without suffering the sugar crash that sends you back to the platter for more cookies 20 minutes after the first splurge!
It’s a good morning when pancakes are piled high on your plate, but it’s a great morning when they’re not just yummy but good for you, too! Skip the boxed mix and make them from scratch with a few simple, healthy ingredients, including rolled oats, a banana and a scoop of all-natural protein powder. Top your stack with chopped peaches and a fresh cream sauce that can be whipped up quicker than you can open a bottle of sugary syrup.
Q. I keep seeing recipes that call for nutritional yeast. What is this ingredient and is it healthy?
A. Powdery in texture and savory in flavor, nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast, and vegans have been gobbling it up for years as a pasta topper, condiment and cheese sub. But you don’t have to be a vegan to say yes to yeast; this high-protein, low carb and low calorie product is arguably much healthier than your ordinary grated cheese. Dairy free, nutritional yeast also is free of gluten, sodium and fat. Read more →
Dunk to your heart’s desire—this creamy, dairy-free dip is loaded with fall flavor and nutrition from organic canned pumpkin. The trick to making it healthy is to swap out traditional cream cheese for a version vegan version blended from raw cashews. Serve with apple slices or gluten-free cinnamon crackers for a filling, festive treat!
I’m all about streamlining the morning get-ready-for-school process. With three kids and a husband who all insist they are absolutely starving the second they get out of bed, I spend time searching for a breakfast that would be easy to prepare and more filing than a bowl of cold cereal. The answer, Bombshells, is organic breakfast bakes.
The vast majority of us start the day with a cup (or three) of coffee. Surprisingly, coffee is a great source of antioxidants. Coffee can be beneficial to health and weight loss efforts when consumed at the right times, without adding excessive amounts of sugar and fat. Most flavored coffee drinks have the nutritional profile of a banana split, but these five recipes provide a tasty twist to your morning routine that will keep your mouth and waist line happy.
Guacamole is great, but how else can you enjoy cool, creamy omega-packed avocado? Sliced and stacked on whole grain bread, this versatile veggie makes the perfect sandwich filler—tender and buttery, but hearty enough for bountiful bites. Top with fresh tomatoes and baby spinach, with a swipe of vegan mayonnaise for tangy flavor.
