This is a great way to enjoy some of the last fall greens, or if lettuce is no longer available where you live, try heartier mixed greens or just the acorn squash and sauce alone. Sunflowers are high in vitamin E (the body's primary fat-soluble antioxidant), magnesium and selenium, and this delicious sauce has many uses so don't be surprised if it becomes a regular in your kitchen.
Quick and easy, this dish is perfect for dinner, summer picnics, parties and BBQ's. It travels and keeps well, so make a large batch and enjoy it for a few days. Feel free to use whatever vegetables and herbs are available locally or in your own garden.

Nothing says summer like a delicious, juicy peach, so we’ve made them the highlight of this peach salad recipe. They pair perfectly with creamy avocados and toasty, crunchy macadamia nuts.

The healthy fats in avocados help in cardiovascular health. The majority of fat in macadamia nuts is monounsaturated, which may help with metabolism. This satisfying peach salad is easy to make and goes well with just about anything. Enjoy!

A great warm weather recipe, easy to throw together and incredibly versatile. I scoop it into lettuce leaves (so much better than bread on a hot summer's day) or put it on top of mixed greens for an easy-to-pack lunch. It's perfect for picnics too! The miso is a unique addition, giving you some digestive enzymes and essential probiotics (hurrah for fermented foods!) along with a delicious flavor. It sort of takes the place of pickles but if you're a tuna-salad traditionalist, feel free to add those in as well. I really love the capers and they pair perfectly with the dill.

Raw greens can be difficult to digest, and when it’s cold, our bodies actually need more warming and lightly-cooked foods for optimal digestion. So make this amazing “salad” and be make sure your body is getting the nourishment it needs from your winter greens!
