This is a great meal on the go option for those needing a good power boost without spending a lot of time in the kitchen. This smoothie is inspired by the infamous Chunky Monkey flavor from Ben & Jerry's, but packs a nutrient punch with chia seeds and the superfood powers of cacao.
You have to try this salad to believe how great it is! If you love Asian chicken salads, you will love this fresh creation. Free of processed sugar and less than desirable oils, you will feel full of energy after this power burst of flavor and nutrients. You can always omit the chicken or add any other protein in its place. The recipe was adapted and modified slightly from the Against All Grain Blog. This salad tastes best if you let it sit for at least an hour prior to serving, make sure you allot for that time when putting this together. This also makes a HUGE salad, so even though there's a lot of slicing and shredding, know you'll have plenty of this salad to eat and enjoy!
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!!! While we have no problem with a little ice cream in moderation, you may not feel great after chowing down a pint a night. If you crave a little after dinner treat, this "mock" ice cream is sure to do the trick. With just 2-3 ingredients (and any toppings if you choose), it's simple to whip up AND packs some healthy fat and essential minerals from the banana. You go from no ice cream, to banana ice cream in just 5 minutes!
This is a great dish to whip up in a flash and full of flavor. Be sure to add in some extra veggies of your choice and really load up the nutrients. If you have a spiralizer, we recommend trying this dish with zoodles for an extra pack of energy.
These Grab N Go Granola bars are beyond simple to make and kick the booty out of any store bought granola bar out there. Feel free to get creative with any goodies you want to add into these bars. You can wrap and store them individually in the fridge for up to a week, or a few months in the freezer. This recipe was inspired by Cookie and Kate with a few VFit Squad additions.
This is a fresh and tasty take on an Asian stir fry sauce. Great with veggies, meat or tofu. You can make a large batch and keep on hand, or make as you need it. It has a spicy and tangy flavor that will really enhance your dish to the next level.
This is a simple to make, grab n go protein bar. While we are always advocates of getting most of your macro's from whole foods, a high quality protein powder (free from additives and sugars), can be an excellent supplement for the busiest of days. This bar will not only save you money from the expensive bars on the market, it will save you peace of mind knowing exactly what you are eating and all with only 7 ingredients.
We are always being asked about our favorite snacks, and this simple snack ranks up high. Inspired from the kid favorite "ant's on a log", we made this version with a crisp and sour green apple. Feel free to get creative with this one. A great mid-afternoon pick me up, or pre-workout fuel up. It also happens to be very kid approved!
Raise your hand if you want cookies for breakfast! Yep, that’s what we thought. These cookies can technically be eaten any time of day, but we figure why not with a big cup of coffee when the sun comes up? They’re loaded with fiber, omegas, and antioxidants. Adding a bowl of berries to this breakfast will take you to Nutrient Superstar status! Cookies can be stored for 4-5 days in an airtight container or frozen for up to 3 months.

The perfect pancake for the whole family. These recipe is so easy to make because you bake the pancakes instead of griddle them. Filled with extra nutrients from nut butter, chia seeds and pumpkin. These are a member favorite for sure!! Adapted from Detoxinista's Grain Free Pumpkin Pancake Recipe
