We all love applesauce and it is so easy to make! This version packs in some healthy fats to keep your tummy and brain full of energy.
This stroganoff has a nice healthy spin! We have it creamy using sour cream and kefir, and instead of classic noodles, we have it with nutrient rich "noodles" - what more do we need to say? We use "zoodles" in this recipe, but feel free to use spaghetti squash or any noodles your prefer - or try using mashed cauli. If you end up with extra sauce, you can freeze or whip up more zoodles to soak the goodness up. London broil is a less expensive piece of meat which cooks up well when cooked in recipes like this. Feel free to use any steak cut you prefer.
Creamed spinach is one of those ultimate comfort foods. Perfect for a cool evening, or if you are in need of some warm, nourishing veggies. We've created a tasty spin on this comfort food classic that forgoes the actual heavy cream and tons of cheese, for sour cream instead. The end result is a nutrient dense power house side dish that will make you feel comforted AND satisfied by meal's end.
This easy muffin recipe mixes up carrots and an apple pie inspired spice blend that will make your whole house smell AMAZING as they bake. You can also switch out the carrot and use sweet potato or zucchini for a twist. We've adapted this muffin recipe from the 21 Day Sugar Detox by Diane Sanfilippo.
Need we say more than apple pie at breakfast! You must try these nutritious and delicious pancakes. Adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie.
We came up with VFit Squad's version of bulletproof coffee and this isn't your average cup of joe! This coffee is filled with plenty of flavor and healthy fats to keep your brain on full drive all day long. This coffee makes a wonderful start to your day. Feel free to omit butter. Some VFit Squad members like adding a little collagen powder in this to help stave off muscle soreness too with all the workouts they get in at the VFit Studio. Last but not least (wow, how much can we say about this recipe, right?) we highly recommend a hand held milk frother if this is something you find yourself making daily. Easy clean up and super simple to use.
Wondering where these meatballs could possibly include Nutrient Superstars? Well, we’ve snuck eggs, celery, onions, and carrot into these bad boys. Worried about the crazy-high sodium content of the buffalo sauce? Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered there, too – with an easy homemade wing sauce recipe. Serve over zucchini noodles or quinoa for an extra boost of nutrients, or on their own as an app.
Yes ... you read that correctly! Life is short, sometimes, you do NEED dessert. A little sugar here and there is not going to kill you, it’s just not, but we always recommend eating dessert made from the highest quality ingredients, so that you’re completely satisfied and not putting chemical junk into your body. This lava cake recipe is adapted slightly from TexanErin. That said, these aren’t actually that high in sugar - just 1/4 a cup - and we use coconut sugar. Coconut sugar is quite low on the glycemic index and it contains inulin. Inulin has properties similar to probiotics, and helps with gut health which can boost to the immune system. These are also grain free for you grain- free eaters. And, believe it or not, they are a lot easier to make than you would think. Just be very careful not to over bake.
Potatoes are delightful, but why not switch it up sometimes with this cruciferous superfood instead? You won't notice the difference!
These molasses cookies were inspired by a vegan blog that many of our members rave about, Oh She Glows – but taken to the next level. Blackstrap Molasses is the highest quality and most nutritious kind of molasses- it has a high iron content, and is high in copper, calcium, and magnesium. Spelt flour is used in place of white flour – spelt is an ancient grain higher in protein and fiber than its counterparts, and is also richer in vitamins and minerals, and is typically easily digestible. Flax, cinnamon, and ginger add extra nutrients to these otherwise naughty tasting cookies.
