Good-for-you tots? Oh, yes we did. Aside from packing in some of our very favorite greenery, these tots are naturally gluten-free and vegan, AND they're baked instead of fried. You're only four ingredients away from a flavor-filled veggie paradise.

Eating healthier doesn't have to be a bore. By making simple substitutions in your baking recipes, you can bump up the nutrition and lower the cholesterol and fat content without sacrificing any flavor at all. This is what they call "having your cake and eating it too," right?
Storing pre-cut vegetables can up your cooking game in a big way. With prep already done, you're recipe-ready and can go ham inventing new dishes or rekindling an old kitchen flame. Plus you'll be covered when it comes to snack-time cravings. Veggies are so easy to store in the fridge once they're chopped, and plenty of them freeze well too. Freezing can help you preserve the bounty of seasons past, which is a great excuse to over indulge at your local farmers' market.
Healthy, delicious and soooo easy to make... you don't need us to tell you smoothies are awesome. But lately it's the smoothie bowl that really has our hearts. Maybe it's because they seem a little more grownup than the straw-slurping standby, or maybe it's because they make us feel like we're eating ice cream sundaes for breakfast. Either way, it's a win.
We've all been beat over the head with how important a well-balanced breakfast is.

Starting tomorrow, indulge your cravings by taking note of what you want and swapping with one of our healthier options.
True story: I worked in a commercial kitchen where the size of your brunoise could cost you your job. Even now, years away from my days cooking in professional kitchens, if I’m not following the proper techniques for how to cut vegetables, I’m afraid someone is going to jump out and start yelling at me.
Fluffy scrambled eggs, savory bacon, buttered toast, and syrupy pancakes aren't the only things you should be craving for breakfast. Veggies can just as easily be the star the morning, and it's time we gave them a chance to shine. You won't regret adding these irresistible options to your current breakfast rotation.
It’s here! Summer is upon us, bringing picnics, barbecues, lazy dinners outside (in between water gun fights) and infinite inspiration with one simple stroll through the farmers' market. Seasonal summer foods are made for lazy cooks. And while I generally love cooking, I’d rather be outside enjoying the sun this time of year than standing at the hot stove creating elaborate meals.
