Mac and cheese is one of those comfort foods we all grew up on. Whether it came from a box or your parents whipped it up from scratch, there’s no denying the pleasure that comes from a forkful of cheesy, fatty, salty goodness. But it turns out vegan mac and cheese packs tons of flavor too (and tons of veggies)!Continue reading “This vegan mac and cheese has all the flavor”
Some diets go just as quickly as they come, but the Mediterranean Diet seems like it is here to stay. Let’s be real though, it’s more like a lifestyle than a diet (probably why it continues to be loved by many). Overall, the Mediterranean Diet emphasizes the consumption of foods high in omega-3s and healthy fats, like fish and olive oil, and lots of plant-based whole foods like nuts, grains, legumes, fruits, and veggies.Continue reading “Is the mediterranean diet compatible with eating clean?”

A plant-based diet focuses on whole foods and, well, plants! It doesn’t necessarily have to mean you’re “vegan” or any other label. It means you consume a diet rich in whole fruits, whole vegetables, whole grains, whole nuts, and seeds, etc. Most importantly, we are placing whole foods above all else, and limiting processed foods, just like the Clean Program.Continue reading “Plant-based diet 101”

It’s hard to resist a warm bowl of broccoli cheddar soup. While there’s a lot to love about the creamy texture and savory flavor of broccoli cheddar soup, that’s where the positives end. Though some of us can eat dairy without a problem, cheese and milk may cause stomach upset in those with lactose intolerance. Luckily, we can still satisfy our cravings for a creamy, savory broccoli soup without the cheddar.Continue reading “Roasted greens and moringa soup”
Kabocha squash, also known as the Japanese pumpkin, is a beautiful squash that comes into its prime during fall and winter months. It has a similar texture and taste to butternut squash but is lower in calories and carbohydrates. We love this buttery, comforting (and easy-to-digest) dish especially in the colder months.
We love this wild rice bowl as a warm, cozy dinner, or prepared ahead of time as a nutrient-dense work lunch. The sweet, balsamic roasted sweet potatoes are perfectly balanced by the bright, citrusy kale, and rounded out with the nutty, warm wild rice. We suggest making a big batch – this dish will disappear quickly!
