Love (of chocolate) is in the air! Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a decadent chocolate-raspberry dessert that’s actually good for your sweetie to eat. Low in sugar, it’s made from healthy and yummy ingredients including raw cacao, raw honey, coconut oil and fresh berries. Simply pour the batter into small dishes and chill for easy-to-serve individual treats, or use a cookie cutter to shape into festive hearts for the occasion.
New to quinoa? This easy-to-make pilaf combines everyone’s favorite fluffy, nutty-tasting grain with a combination of wild, brown and black rice and flavorful veggies including artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes and kale.

Ready for a healthy January dessert? This apple crisp from personal chef Amie Valpone is made with KIND Healthy Grains Clusters–a unique gluten-free granola made from 100% whole grains including amaranth, quinoa, oats, millet and buckwheat–instead of flour. Use dairy-free butter and chocolate chips to make it a vegan treat.
You know they’re good for you, but how can you add more super seeds such as chia, hemp and flax into everyday meals? Here’s a simple solution (and you don’t even have to turn on the stove!). Blend up this Green Protein Machine Smoothie with fresh kale, cucumber, parsley and other healthy greens, then sprinkle in a scoop or two of each type of seed. A single serving supplies nearly 15 grams of protein — plus vitamins, minerals, fiber and omega-3s!
The holiday season may be on its way out, but the color green is here to stay! Blend up a banana-berry smoothie, then toss in a handful of veggies, some chia seeds and a scoop of vegan protein powder for a revitalizing, nutrient-packed drink.
Why struggle to get your greens? This vegan veggie smoothie is a simple, refreshing way to squeeze in a serving—before you’ve even had lunch! Dairy free and powered up with flax and rice protein, it’s a healthy way to start your day, or sip as a snack when you’re in the mood for something sweet.
We all have dietary restrictions of some kind. Whether we’re looking for raw food recipes or just want a dish low in sodium, the search can be treacherous or, worse…tasteless! These quinoa cakes are full of flavor. Even better, they cater to vegan, gluten-free, low-sodium and low-sugar diets.
