Dinner

This is a delicious yet simple side dish that requires little prep time! Carrots are great for eye health due to their beta carotene content. They also contain fiber, potassium and antioxidants.

The lemon zest really brightens this dish up and adds immune-boosting vitamin C. Serve this dish on your Thanksgiving table or for company - the rainbow carrots make this one an impressive and beautiful dish for entertaining.

We love this Farro and Wild Mushroom Gratin for a holiday meal or all winter long. Its hearty, delicious and full of nutrients. This is our take on green bean casserole, a classic Thanksgiving dish. Instead of cream of mushroom soup, we made a lighter sauce with a little white wine, flour and parmesan cheese.

This dish is full of nutrients thanks to the fiber-rich farro, wild mushrooms and spinach. Mushrooms add an umami, savory flavor, making this a hearty and filling vegetarian dish.

These sweet potato & quinoa cakes are perfect for a meatless meal! Serve them over a big salad for lunch or with roasted veggies for dinner.

As we get into fall and the holiday season, a lot of the comfort foods we crave centered around meat & cheese. That's why we love balancing it out with a few "meatless" meals per week.

Unlike animal foods, plant-based foods contain fiber, antioxidants and phytonutrients. These compounds help keep our immune systems strong and work within our bodies to prevent disease. Incorporating more plant-based meals in your diet is an easy way to ensure you are getting all of those nutrients that your body loves!

We lightened up one of our favorite baked gnocchi recipes from What's Gaby Cooking and we couldn't be happier with how it turned out! Instead of using potato gnocchi, we substituted Trader Joe's famous cauliflower gnocchi and used a lot less cheese to cut back on the saturated fat content of this dish. This is truly lightened up comfort food at its best!

We recommend serving this dish with a big side salad for added fiber and nutrients. Alternatively, you could always add some spinach into the bake. Enjoy!

Everyone loves fettuccine alfredo! It's rich, creamy and delicious. We love fettuccine alfredo as much as the next person but wanted to take a stab at lightening up this classic comfort dish. To do this, we used a cashew-based sauce that mimics the creamy texture of an alfredo sauce without the heavy cream. This cashew cream sauce not only tastes amazing but has the same creamy texture as your standard alfredo sauce, making it an excellent, healthy swap.

We also recommend using a legume-based pasta like a chickpea or lentil pasta. Legume-based pastas are higher in fiber and protein than a wheat pasta. Using a legume-based pasta is a great way to increase the overall nutrient density of your meal!

This old-fashioned chicken chili recipe is hearty and delicious but also full of veggies! During the fall and winter, we love this soup for it's immune boosting properties. It includes red bell peppers which are an excellent source of immune-boosting vitamin C. Peppers actually have 3x the amount of vitamin C as an orange!

We used lean ground chicken to make this a lighter version of your traditional chili.

We recommend serving this chili with tortilla chips for easy scooping. We also love topping our chili with avocado slices and a dollop of full fat greek yogurt or sour cream - so good!
