This is a great option for Meatless Monday (or Taco Tuesday) or any day really! We love the rich and creamy taste of butternut squash. Packed full of nutrients, this meal is a very quick and healthy spin on Mexican food.
This is one of Rachele's FAVORITE crockpot dishes. It is so full of flavor and simple to make. This ropa vieja pairs wonderful with some spicy slaw or cilantro lime cauli rice. This shredded meat is easy to make, yet tastes gourmet AND its rich in flavor, all while staying packed full of fresh veggies and spices.
We love this meal because it is easy to prepare, presents well and tastes delicious. It is easy to prep ahead of time and bake after a busy day of work. It's also packed with nutrients and a perfect way to use up some bell peppers!
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.
This is a flavorful and easy to make dish great for a busy day if you plan ahead. Simply do the first step in the morning, then just before dinner you finish it off and have delicious carnitas meat to enjoy. We LOVE this as tacos, with cauli rice or over some spicy slaw.
There's just so much to say YES to about this soup. To name just a few of the benefits of eating cauliflower: helps reduce cancer risk, reduces inflammation, decreases risk of heart disease, huge doses of vitamins C and K, improves digestion and helps balance hormones and detox the body. Then, you add the benefits of the chicken broth or bone broth, and this is a perfect creamy soup to make to truly nourish your body! We also love the topping of raw cashews on top for a little crunch to make the creaminess really shine through in this soup.
This tasty creamy soup is thickened with yogurt, rather than cream, which helps add probiotics and a nice tang to this yummy meal in a bowl! We love the combo of broccoli and white beans here, and you'll see why once you take that first taste!
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 may seem like a far stretch, but we really love this unique spin on a Mexican favorite. Collard greens make excellent "tortillas" and allow you to make a nutrient dense version of your favorite enchiladas. This recipe pairs great with cauli rice or spicy slaw and some whole beans.
This recipe was shared by one of our VFit Squad favorite cooks. It's simple to make, full of flavor and will please everyone. Mushrooms add such a nice earthy flavor and using chicken thighs brings on the moisture! The recipe was adopted from the Everyday Paleo cookbook.
