The carrot cake flavor is there while staying high in protein and low in sugar! Helps you meet your macros and taste delicious, what more could you want?

Hearty Lentil Soup

Hearty Lentil Soup
One of the easiest things to make well are soups! This is super hearty, full of veggies and packed with protein from the sausage, lentils and the bone broth! It's also full of flavor! It can easily be made vegetarian by omitting the sausage and switching to vegetable broth too.

White Bean & Kale Soup

White Bean & Kale Soup

Kale yeah! This is SOUPer simple and delicious. I recommend taking the time to soak dried cannelini beans (I order mine online) because I find the canned ones of this particular bean are just mush. And that little blast of lemon juice at the end? Absolutely zingy delicious!

Chimichurri Inspired Sauce

By Gina Caputo

Chimichurri Inspired Sauce
Chimichurri is a bright, punchy, herbaceous sauce with roots in South America and it goes well with just about EVERYTHING. I especially love it for summer when herbs are abundant and it's too hot to cook inside so everything gets grilled. While your veggies or meats are grilling, whip this up and serve it right alongside. It makes everything taste like a summer party!

Soupa Green

Soupa Green
Rainy spring days have me wanting healthy soups. Not the dense soups of Fall but something both warm and bright. Enter SOUPA GREEN! A vegan Spring soup that uses the veggies of the season that just all happen to be green. Note - the peas and the splash of lemon juice MAKE this soup. I add beans for protein and some bite, you could also add a small pasta in this soup if you'd like to make it even heartier.

Pesto with Super Greens

By Gina Caputo

Pesto with Super Greens
Pesto has been a family fave for decades but two ways I've kicked it up over the years are the addition of lemon juice which adds a bright and welcome sour kick to the salty, herbacious pesto, giving it a little more lightness and the addition of a Hulk sized portion of super greens to kick up the vitamin profile of pesto!

Roasted Feta, Tomatoes, Peppers & Chickpeas

Roasted Feta, Tomatoes, Peppers & Chickpeas
TikTok made the pasta version of this dish popular so I couldn't wait to give it a try and put my own spin on it by adding chickpeas, peppers and preserved lemons to the feta and tomatoes. You can eat this straight from the bowl or serve over pasta, a grain or with lavash, like I had it.

Devlishly Delicious

Devlishly Delicious
This pot o' goodness is inspired by a dish I saw called Lentils Diavolo, which is Italian for devil and refers, in food, to a spicy sauce. I kicked it up with extra veggies and a different source of fire. It's vegan, hearty, easy and can be served alone or on top of couscous (pictured here is Israeli couscous), small pasta noods, rice, farro, polenta, or potatoes.
