This Lupini Bean Salad with Crushed Pistachio is a delicious high-fiber side dish with a crunchy pistachio topping. It would make a great addition to any warm meal! Or pair it with a side baked sweet potato or roasted squash for a full meal!

I love dessert, so I'm always looking for healthy ways to add it to my day. One of my favorite ways is a quickie banana ice cream, so I thought about what other flavor combos would work well. It turns out cantaloupe, banana, and lemon make a delicious frozen dessert treat!
Hello, mandarin orange smoothie bowl! This breakfast treat blends together creamy coconut milk and coconut yogurt with mandarin oranges and bananas. Yum. I've been obsessed with smoothies lately, and recently I was set on the idea of creating a smoothie bowl reminiscent of an orange Creamsicle.

Here's a dessert for breakfast you won't feel the least bit guilty about! This decadent-tasting, protein-rich meal will help keep you going all morning. I started with a pretty basic chia pudding: I combined low-fat milk (you can also use an alternative milk, such as unsweetened almond milk) with chia seeds and vanilla extract. I let the mixture plump up in the fridge for about an hour before taking it to the next level.
