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 is one of my all time favorite ways to use up leftover apples during the fall and winter! I like to spread this apple butter on toast, muffins and sandwiches. I also love swirling it into yogurt at breakfast and adding it to a cheese board when entertaining.

Apples are a great source of the soluble fiber pectin. Soluble fiber helps to lower cholesterol levels and improves gut function.

During the fall and winter, we love using spaghetti squash in place of traditional noodles to lighten up many of our favorite comfort foods. This spaghetti squash lasagna comes together quickly and is so satisfying.

Spaghetti squash is low in calories and fat but packed with nutrients including fiber, vitamin C, and vitamin B6. Spaghetti squash is also a great source of antioxidants including beta carotene. Beta carotene helps to prevent oxidative stress and cell damage, keeping us healthy and preventing disease.

Serve this meal with a big green salad for added nutrients.

Having a go-to bean salad in your repertoire is a must! Bean salads are easy to put together and can be adapted with whatever vegetables, herbs and spices you have on hand. The best part? They can be made in advance and keep well in the fridge for days. We love a good bean salad for weekday lunches for this reason!

Legumes like beans, peas, chickpeas, and lentils are a staple of the Mediterranean diet. They are high in fiber and protein and low in saturated fat, making them great for heart health.

We love this fall take on a classic black eyed pea salad. Butternut squash adds fall flavor along with immune-boosting vitamins C and A. Butternut squash is also a good source of potassium, a mineral that can help reduce blood pressure.
