In this tasty rendition of shrimp scampi, zucchini noodles have been swapped for regular pasta to boost nutrition and lower calories. This dish is light and refreshing, making it the perfect summer lunch or dinner.

Zucchini is a terrific source of antioxidants as well as vitamins A and C, all of which keep our immune system strong and healthy.

Shrimp is a wonderful lean protein choice and an excellent source of the mineral selenium and vitamin B12.

This is a classic flavor combination that never gets old!

Beets are an incredibly nutritious root vegetable. They contain nutrients including folate, manganese, potassium, and magnesium. They also contain nitrates, which may help lower blood pressure and promote heart health. We recommend buying pre-roasted beets to cut back on prep time. Trader Joe's make an excellent pack of pre-roasted beets.

Farro is a whole grain that adds a nutty flavor and fiber to this recipe. Whole grains can help slow digestion, helping to keep you full longer and potentially contributing to weight loss.

This recipe was inspired by a classic Southern Living recipe, but we lightened it up by using less oil and cheese. We promise the flavor is still amazing thanks to the combination of a few of our favorite summer fruits and veggies - peaches and tomatoes. It comes together so easily and makes such a refreshing summer side.

Peaches are naturally low in calories and contain a variety of vitamins and minerals. Try grilling halved peaches for a delicious and healthy summer dessert! Corn is a whole grain that can be incorporated into a healthy Mediterranean lifestyle.

Strawberries and tomatoes are an unexpected yet super flavorful combination in this refreshing summer salad adapted from Cooking Light! Not only do strawberries and tomatoes add a pop of flavor but they also add a lot of inflammation-fighting antioxidants to this meal.

We recommend purchasing produce in season for peak ripeness and optimal taste. Seasonal produce is also higher in certain nutrients because it is picked and consumed at the peak of freshness when nutrient content is at its highest.

This salad is excellent paired with grilled chicken or salmon. 

This warm brussel sprout and pear salad is bursting with fall flavors! This would make a great side at Thanksgiving or any special holiday meal.

Brussel sprouts are rich in antioxidants which can help prevent cancer and reduce inflammation within the body. Pears contain potassium, a nutrient that flushes out excess sodium from the body. Reducing sodium within the body can help lower blood pressure and lower your risk for stroke and heart disease.

This is a favorite fall dish that is packed with nutrients and flavor. The lentils and cauliflower in this dish provide a great source of fiber and protein while the mushrooms add a healthy dose of micronutrients and antioxidants.

Incorporating more meatless meals into your weekly rotation is a great way to optimize health. Plant-based foods contain fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, all of which work within your body to prevent chronic disease and support both physical and mental health.

A great goal is to aim for one meatless meal per week. We love the concept of 'Meatless Mondays' because it's always a good idea to start your week off right by getting in a ton of nutrients from plant-based foods.
