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 seem to always have extra carrots on hand and this carrot ginger soup is the perfect way to use them up! In addition to being full of fall flavor, this soup is also packed with nutrients. Carrots contain vitamin A, an antioxidant that supports healthy vision. Even though they aren't a bright color, white vegetables like garlic and onions are also rich in antioxidants!

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.
