I love the flavor combination of oranges and beets in this arugula salad. It’s a delicious and colorful side that’s both beautiful and packed with vitamins and minerals. Arugula is quite peppery, so I prefer to use a mixture of baby arugula and baby spinach, but you could also use all arugula, or even a […]
Try this blueberry and flaxseed smoothie the next time you’re looking for a quick breakfast or just a healthy snack. I like to use frozen berries for a thick, cool drink. This eliminates the need for ice, which can weaken the flavor. Raspberries can be swapped out for blueberries, or you can try using a […]
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. […]
This roasted pear recipe is a delicious dessert that’s healthy and easy to make. Bosc pears work well here because the flesh is firmer than in other varieties, and they seem to hold up better when baking. I like to serve them with plain Greek yogurt and a little bit of the orange lime syrup drizzled […]

We blend tropical mangos with peaches to make a creamy sorbet with just a touch of lime. This is easy to make using fresh peaches and mangos, or if they’re out of season, frozen peaches and mangos work well too.
This appetizer is delicious and extremely easy to make. Black Mission figs have a deep, rich flavor and pair perfectly with the soft, creamy texture of mascarpone. Best of all, it can be made ahead of time and assembled just before serving. Anything left over is wonderful on toast! Try this with our Stuffed Dates […]
We blend sweet strawberries and blueberries into a smooth puree for this refreshing and delicious sorbet. It’s hard to believe a dessert that tastes so good can be loaded with so many vitamins and antioxidants. It’s easy to make, and when berries aren’t in season, frozen berries work just as well. When we make sorbet, we […]
For this salad, I use romaine lettuce and radicchio, which is a variety of leaf-chicory. Its peppery flavor combines perfectly with the sweet taste of apple and dried cranberries. A creamy buttermilk dressing pulls it all together.
