Enter: this lentil beet salad.Continue reading “The bright lentil beet salad you’ll make on repeat”
We have a deep love of Asian food. Such flavors as ginger, sesame oil, and rice vinegar really please the palate.

It’s easy to get your greens when they’re hidden in a flavorful, comforting bowl of pasta. We’ve paired chickpea pasta with a nutty, homemade pesto and filled it with good for you veggies like arugula and peas. This is the perfect dish to make ahead of time, and it can be enjoyed hot or cold.
During colder months, a hot and hearty bowl of lentil soup is the perfect way to nourish your body. This recipe is filled with fibrous vegetables, colorful spices, and will become an instant staple year-round. This recipe can be made stovetop or in an instant pot for a quick, convenient meal.
Meatloaf is a classic comfort food. We’ve created a version that is filled with fibrous veggies, high-quality protein, and perfect spice, plus it’s loaded with flavor that will have you repeating this recipe all year long. This turkey meatloaf is perfect for sneaking extra veggies into your kid’s meals and for meal prepping.
Loaded sweet potatoes sound like the ultimate, indulgent comfort food. Usually piled high with ingredients like sour cream, bacon, and cheese, they may taste good, but it’s better for our health to have a clean version. We’ve chosen sweet potatoes as the base for this vegan version, and with spice-rich veggies, heart-healthy oil, and garlic you’ll get just as much flavor without the food coma.
Why eat seasonal produce? When you eat seasonal food you absorb more vital nutrients from the soil it has grown in. Locally grown food has more flavor, because it was picked when ripe. Try buying your acorn squash from a local farmers market and see if you can taste the difference. This is perfect fall food, especially if you are looking to eat less meat or meat-free!
The macrobiotic movement is about not so much about adhering to one specific and unchanging diet, and more about learning how different foods affect you and consciously choosing, preparing, and eating meals that fit your needs as they shift over time – similar to the philosophy of the 21-Day Clean Program.
We love using cauliflower rice to substitute rice or wheat in clean recipes. It’s so simple to blend, cook, and use in a variety of recipes. Grains are actually difficult for many people to digest, and you may notice indigestion or bloat after eating starchy grains like rice. Using cauliflower rice instead will help you to avoid this discomfort as well as lower your carb intake.
