Our Whole Wheat Carrot Muffins are full of heart-healthy ingredients — along with whole wheat flour, walnuts, and canola oil, we add one cup of grated carrots for extra moisture. These little powerhouses are great for a quick breakfast on-the-go or an afternoon snack with a cup of hot tea. They’re low in sugar but […]
By itself, our avocado toast makes a delicious breakfast or snack. But we like to go a step further and top it with a salad of mixed baby greens dressed in a light vinaigrette. It’s a healthy, plant-based option that’s perfect for brunch or as a starter for a meal.
Our blueberry cornmeal pancakes are fluffy and light-textured, thanks to buttermilk and a combination of baking powder and baking soda. The cornmeal sets them apart from traditional pancakes, making them great for lunch or a quick evening meal. We love to add blueberries to our pancakes just because they taste so good, but the pancakes […]
Mangos are high in fiber and contain large amounts of vitamin C and beta-carotene. When ripe and juicy, they make a delicious smoothie or fruit sorbet. With a vanilla yogurt base, this creamy mango smoothie gets an added boost of flavor from honey and freshly squeezed orange juice. It’s a perfect way to start the […]

Making granola takes a little bit of time, but the results are well worth it. You don’t have to worry about artificial flavors, high fructose corn syrup, or any other additives. I use pure maple syrup to sweeten this granola. Nuts are packed with a wide range of essential nutrients, and I’ve chosen some of our favorites. […]
Our roasted pears are cooked in a delicious syrup made with fresh orange juice, lime juice, and a little bit of sugar. The syrup is cooked on top of the stove and added to the pears during the last 5 minutes of cooking. This allows the pears to get a little bit of a caramelization […]

We use white whole-wheat flour in this recipe, which is a variety of flour all its own. It has the same nutritional […]
