Salads

Goji Sunshine Salad (Ready in 5 minutes!)

Fresh salads are a staple of warmer weather, and with the arrival of spring and the approaching summer season, there’s nothing better than a fast, fresh salad for lunch or dinner. The ingredients in this salad came fresh from a local farmers market, which means that they are less likely to contain dangerous pesticides and are likely to contain more nutrients. Enjoy this light and easy recipe.

A Honey Sesame Salad Dressing So Good You’ll be Licking the Bowl

I don’t know why, but I always found even the thought of making a homemade dressing daunting. When there’s an entire grocery aisle dedicated to salad dressing, why would I need to make my own?! But I was so wrong. This dressing is so good you will be licking the salad bowl, and dipping every last veggie you can find, into its creamy goodness.

Meatless Monday: Sweet & Salty Sweet Potato Salad

Sweet potatoes are a definite fall favorite. They’re not only delicious and versatile, but they’re incredibly nutritious. Sweet potatoes pack a ton of fiber and beta carotene and they pair well with lean proteins, other roasted vegetables, and salads. This fall salad combines seasonal sweet potatoes with kale (Tuscan cabbage), pomegranate seeds, cranberries, and almonds. It’s a great side for your thanksgiving meal, or even for your everyday lunch. Get the full recipe!

The combination of salty pine nuts with sweet dried cranberries topped with vegan parmesan “cheese” makes it the perfect combination of flavors. Get the recipe.

In Australia, summer is coming to an end so this is a lovely sweet end-of-season juice. And for the northern hemisphere, your warm weather is on it's way so this is a great juice you can enjoy all season long. The celery tones down the sweetness of this juice while adding extra electrolytes. This juice is high in lycopene, the more ripe the watermelon and the darker the flesh the higher the content of this carotenoid lycopene.
