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!
This recipe will take you to the Carribbean. Turn up some calypso or reggae and enjoy making these yummy coconut shrimp! The outer coconut crispy coating is a total treat and then we've put together a nutrient packed Thai inspired sauce to use as a dip or a sauce. It's a match made in food (or belly) heaven! Work to chop and prep all your ingredients for sauce before starting it to starting it up. We call for a blender or using your immersion blender for it. If you want your sauce thinner, you can always add in a little water to water it out or enjoy it thick as a dip like our photo.
This breakfast comfort food that looks like work but is a fairly simple recipe to assemble- the only real work is in the chopping. This is a great one to make when you’ve got leftover rotisserie chicken from the night before, and if you chop double the vegetables, this can be remade in minutes the next morning. Peppers, potatoes, and onions are your Nutrient Superstars here, and chicken and eggs give you a serious boost of protein. Adapted slightly from www.fitnessmagazine.com
Chia seeds act as a great thickener for this coconut milk pudding. Not only that, but chia seeds are a super source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and pack a full punch of fiber, iron, and calcium (which is so needed for bone health). Omega-3 fatty acids bring up our good cholesterol (HDL) which helps protect our heart against stroke and heart attacks. This is a single serve recipe, you may want to just go ahead and double - or triple - it straight away, it's THAT good!
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.
Spend all day at the beach, then come back home to this amazing salad! Well, even if you AREN'T hitting the beach, making this cobb will take you to a warm, sunny day!

What to do with that overly ripe banana? Why not make these fantastic banana pancakes?
