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 unexpected flavors in recipes we've made time and time again. This chia seed pudding has just that, thanks to rooibos tea. The tea gives the chia seed pudding a subtle, but delicious flavor that will leave you guessing what the secret ingredient is. Combined with the creamy, cold smoothie mixture and blackberry jam, this smoothie bowl is incredibly unique and satisfying.
We are commonly advised to add more fish to our diet for its heart-healthy benefits. Unfortunately, finding and preparing high-quality, wild fish can prove difficult and too time-consuming for many people. Canned fish may seem sub-par, but in reality, it is often easier to find high-quality canned fish that will also last. We think when you try high quality-canned salmon prepared properly you’ll love the taste and have a new go-to lunch with this salmon bowl!
Mango is one of the best alternatives to bananas during your cleanse. It provides the thick, sweet, creamy texture that we all love as a base for smoothies, but it is cleanse-friendly. Bonus: its flavor will instantly transport you to a warm, sunny beach, no matter what the weather is outside!
Over the last few years, bulletproof coffee or matcha lattes have become the preferred way to caffeinate for health-minded caffeine lovers. It calls for adding healthy fats to a cup of coffee and blitzing it in the blender until it looks like a foamy latte. But what about if you are taking a break from caffeine, or have cut it out completely because of anxiety or other dietary reasons? This dandelion coffee recipe might be just the thing.
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!
Boasting ingredients like spirulina, matcha, and cacao, this superfood pie has the nutrient density of a big, leafy green salad. This dessert is rich in flavor but free of dairy, gluten, and processed sugar. It's simple to make, so you'll likely find yourself repeating this recipe all year long. Use this recipe when trying to make healthier holiday swaps!
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!
Chocolate and cherry is a classic flavor combination. Often reserved for dessert, we decided to toss this dynamic duo in the blender for a decadent morning smoothie. Spoiler alert: there may be chocolate sauce involved.
