What's a Greek American girl to do who is jonesing for some home-cooking to reminisce about her childhood but she can't eat gluten? She improvises with nutritional food swaps, of course! Maria uses hemp hearts here in place of bread crumbs to dish up some Greek keftedes. Served with a side of sweet potatoes and roasted broccoli this is a hearty dish that'll take you back to the homeland.
This is not your grandma's cabbage roll! It actually tastes like hamburger helper in the best possible way! It's so much easier to make, ha ha! She won't be offended, she'll just be happy you are still getting in those great nutrients on this old school dish.
All the layers of flavor from your favorite Thai restaurant but from the comfort of your own home! This recipe is super versatile and you can choose your own protein. This will also work great with leftover chicken or protein from last night's dinner! Not only that, there's so many awesome options for toppers so each person can really customize their bowl. Look for full fat canned coconut milk for this to yield a real creamy and comforting soup.
One way to eat your greens beyond a ton of salad is to have them in some hearty soup! This is a VERY filling soup, filled with a ton of nourishing veggies. What makes this so filling is that it has pureed potatoes as part of the base. It'll be love at first bite once you dig into this mean green soup!
It's all over the internet, and and it's internet famous for a reason. This noodle slaw dish is just too darn good to not include in our Rolodex. We've swapped out a few classic ingredients to lower sodium and increase nutrients, but trust us, it'll live up to its name. You'll want all the bites for yourself and your poor family will have to fend for themselves 🙂
Four words: get in my belly! This one is SO easy, totally MSG free, and absolutely delicious! Don't let the steps fool you, it's easy peasy, and once you master it, you can do all sorts of add ins and swaps too.
Bring on the bison! This chili recipe uses bison as the meat base. Your home will smell glorious as this one simmers, and the beans add in great fiber and protein too, but you don't have to tell your people how healthy this recipe is, that can be our secret! You can also sub out the bison for ground beef, turkey, or go vegetarian and add another can of beans (black beans, pinto, or chick peas would work) in its place.
