This chili is based off a chili from the restaurant Hard Times Cafe in Alexandria, Va. Textured soy protein is a great addition that creates tiny chunks of soy. These chunks almost look like meat chunks that can be great at fooling any meat lover. Leaving the chili to cool overnight is not mandatory, but it does taste better after leaving it to cure.
These salads are all super quick and easy to make ahead of time to make the busy weekday mornings a bit more manageable. Feel free to make each of these salads your own!
These mini eggplant lasagnas are a perfect healthy way to hit that spot for some comforting pasta dish. They are also super easy to make and look like you took a lot of time to make it. You can also serve it with a nice side salad if you wish for a little more on the plate.
This salad is perfect for a side dish with some roasted tofu or baked chicken. It’s light and vibrant with its pink color from the beets. It is both quick and easy to cook up and store making it an ideal meal prep recipe for lunches for the week.
This pizza is so light and tasty you wont be thinking you are eating pizza at all. It also wont make you feel bloated like other pizzas. If I had to create my own pizza at a restaurant this would be my take on a margarita pizza. Feel free to add your own toppings or change up the toppings below (nutitional facts below are based on crust and toppings below).
This is a fantastic dish to fill you up on a deliciously healthy and hearty meal. The vegetable spiraled pasta allow you to eat the pasta for lunch or dinner without worrying about the carbs from typical pasta. It is a great spin on a puttanesca pasta that will want you to eat it all week. It is also a great dish for kids to eat their veggies without the overpowering taste of them.
Detoxing can be a great way to get yourself out of a sluggish period. If you are feeling more depressed, anxious, tired, or just not yourself you might consider detoxing. I have found it most helpful for me to do it around the holidays or even at the beginning of the new year, as the holidays can tend to involve a lot of deliciously unhealthy food and alcohol.
