Lemony Spring Vegetable and Chickpea Stew

Fresh and light, this stew is nothing like the hearty thick winter stews and their hefty repercussions. The zesty lemon will cleanse your liver and help regulate bowel movements, while the chickpeas will deliver a hefty dose of protein and fiber. If you think you might need a more satiating meal, add rice when you […]

Fresh Tomato Sauce

Summer is tomato season! All over the country, fresh, vine-ripened, heirloom tomatoes are available. They taste flavorful, they have plenty of health benefits, like lycopene; vitamins A, B3, B6, B9, C, and E. And this particular recipe is so simple because it practically makes itself. Additionally, since it’s raw, this is a recipe where getting […]

Falafel is a delicious, easy dish that you can have as a protein-rich vegetarian entrée instead of meat.

Spicy Green Soup

Summer time is the best time for a cold dinner, but endless salads can get a bit repetitive. This blend and chill soup is a great alternative, paired with a couple of boiled eggs or some leftover quinoa. It will keep in your refrigerator about a week, and is a great way to eat vegetables, […]

Lemon Coconut Bars

I’m grateful for any summer recipe that doesn’t involve turning on the oven or the stove. These dessert bars are based in lots of healthy ingredients: high protein nuts; healthy, natural sweetener maple syrup, and heart healthy coconut. The maple syrup helps everything stick together without using any heat. They’re delicious and simple to prepare. […]

Dessert Almonds

This dessert blends the filling protein power of nuts with a little cocoa powder (great in antioxidants) and ginger (great anti-inflammatory.) These spicy, sweet nuts are great as a garnish for dessert or to add to your lunch box to finish out a meal instead of a sugary, flour-y cookie. You might also try putting […]

Green Pea Cookies

This cookie uses peas and dates for sweetness. It also includes a little tofu, which makes them relatively high protein. So instead of a sugar-y, high calorie dessert, you have a high protein and delicious snack. I like to bring them to potlucks as a healthier alternative to cookies or cakes made with wheat. Get […]

Pickled asparagus and onions

Pickles are great, but they don’t have to be limited to cucumbers! I like to keep a few pickles of various kinds on hand as snacks, garnish, and hors d’oeuvres. They’re a simple make ahead dish, and it’s a good way to use the delightful array of fresh vegetables that you get over the summer. […]

Baked cauliflower and peas: mac & cheese alternative

The macaroni in macaroni and cheese is usually a simple carbohydrate from plain white flour. This cheesy dish uses cancer-fighting cauliflower to achieve the same sort of taste, but with fewer calories and more fiber. I think it’ll replace macaroni as a comfort food for you and your famly.
