As we reach the end of summer, there’s no better time to take advantage of full-flavored fresh fruits and vegetables that hydrate and satiate by providing plenty of nutrients, while still keeping us feeling light and energized. Plant foods are the primary focus of a clean whole foods diet and enjoying them just takes a little bit of experimentation to find the recipes and flavors you love. Here are some of our favorites.
Cold Curried Noodles
The perfect summer meal; quick, easy, light and delicious. This recipe is fast to make and easy to bring to the beach, picnics and BBQ’s. Feel free to add any vegetables you want, or try ginger instead of curry for another tasty variation.
Curried Red lentil Bisque
Lentils provide a delicious and inexpensive way to get a big dose of plant protein, as well as a satisfying meal for you and the whole family. This recipe is perfect if the temperature is already beginning to cool where you are.
Root Vegetable Fries
These baked root vegetable fries are a favorite. They make a great snack or side to any meal. They’re a wonderful alternative to regular french fries, since carrots and parsnips are less starchy than potatoes and loaded with extra nutrition.
Blackberry and Apple Cobbler
A gluten and oat free crumble that satisfies any cravings for a yummy treat! You can serve this warm or cold as a dessert, a Cleanse diet breakfast, or as a side. It’s nutritious and naturally sweet with endless possibilities.
