Gina's Stellar Ceviche

By Gina Caputo

Gina's Stellar Ceviche
Few things satisfy me like this shrimp ceviche - it's light and fresh and packed with protein and veggies. It's perfect for potlucks, cookouts and game day where lots of party dishes can be out of synch with your health goals. If you're a citrus lover, definitely try adding grapefruit juice to brighten it up even more. You can eat it with a fork or use your favorite tortilla chips as spoons!

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!

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.

Shrimp & Asparagus Salad

By Gina Caputo

Shrimp & Asparagus Salad
When asparagus is in season, this salad is a MUST. The bitter of the arugula goes so spectacularly with asparagus and the lemon makes every ingredient in here pop. Shrimp is a super easy protein to prepare, is amazing with avocado and has a lot of bang for its buck. Vegan friends can use a can of rinsed garbanzo beans and it’s an amazing, hearty salad for all!

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!

Walk On The Wild Side

By Gina Caputo

Walk On The Wild Side
Wild rice seems so...rustic. It's hearty and earthy and I don't use it nearly enough. It started there. But the real star of this One Bowl Wonder? THE PEANUT BUTTER-MISO SAUCE. Maybe it's just me but I want this flavor again and again. Next time I'm doubling the amount of sauce so I can put it on other stuff just to see how it holds up. But the pairing of that sauce with sweet potatoes was EPIC.

Thai Chicken Salad

By Gina Caputo

Thai Chicken Salad
I love how Thai food combines things I love like coconut milk, lime and cilantro.  I was craving those flavors and wanted a salad but needed something more substantial than just lettuce so I added some cilantro-lime basmati rice and basically made a chopped Thai salad with peanut sauce on top. It's a keeper!
