Not only is fresh cod melt-in-your-mouth delicious, but this simple miso glaze, that's ready in minutes, is insanely good too. The combination will make your whole family happy, and we can attest that with this recipe, you'll have to work hard to eat slowly!
This pesto is a delicious new twist on the classic. We now put this on everything; salads, wild rice, roasted vegetables, soba noodles, or as a dip for vegetables or topping for brown rice tortilla nachos. Endless possibilities.
A crowd pleasing sweet treat that's actually packed with nutrition, this chocolate mousse will be a hit wherever and whenever you serve it. If you keep the main ingredient secret, almost no one will guess that it's avocados that give this mousse body and creamy texture. Watch kids scarf it down and ask for more, not realizing there's actually green goodness in it. . . and plenty of healthy fat to keep the body energized and metabolism fired up. A dessert or snack that's great for the skin, nails and hair too. All around yummy.
This is a perfect spring salad; a quick and easy side dish that's easier to digest due to the marinating process. Or you can steam or saute it too. Anyone with thyroid issues will want to cook the broccoli first. I tend to like mine steamed, which makes this nutritious powerhouse bright green and soft, but it's totally up to you. Either way, we know you'll enjoy this antioxidant packed salad.
This is a recipe for nut cheese, soft and creamy, made two ways.
Macadamia nuts are easy to find and high in healthy saturated fat which helps speed up metabolism. Marcona almonds are high in protein and we use them for this recipe because they come already peeled. Pine nuts and cashews would work as well.
You could also use regular almonds, but if you want them skinless (which is recommended for this recipe), it's a pretty involved project, so we'd suggest finding already peeled nuts for this versatile and delicious "cheese". Check out the serving suggestions below and enjoy!
