Presentation is everything. So is simplicity! Get the best of both worlds with The 7-minute Sweet Spud. A lot of people think sweet potatoes have to take a long time to cook! The good news is that this is a common misconception, and the health benefits (rich in vitamins, iron, potassium) that sweet potatoes provide can be accessed fast! Plus, sweet potatoes contain much fewer calories than their non-sweet counterpart yet deliver more nutrients!
Love croutons in your salad but not too thrilled about the carb count? Try swapping conventional croutons for tofu croutons for a crunchy, plant-based protein kick! We recommend using the EZ Tofu Press to drain your tofu for optimal taste and texture.
Talk about a breakfast of champs. Or dinner. This meal is so satiating that it could go either way. We recommend choosing Wild Caught salmon as it’s way fresher! However, you may replace the salmon with any variety of fish fillet if you wish! Enjoy the dish! (Hey, that rhymes!)
Today’s recipe comes from a cosmopolitan blogger who pens Broke and Bougie. This up-and-coming writer is a fitness enthusiast, clean-eating aficionado and fashion fanatic living on a shoe-string budget in one of the country’s most expensive cities — yet still insists on maintaining a glamorous, upscale lifestyle for herself, her partner and their posh pooches.
Oh how sweet it is to enjoy healthy sweets! Next time you have a hankering for something creamy and soft, try this Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding. We love chia seeds around here because they deliver tons of nutrients without tons of calories. Oh, and just add a little bit of cocoa powder and the pudding is magically chocolate!

A little rough around the edges…yes, but this zesty tart packs a lemony, pucker-worthy popping punch! Though light, it contains a balance of fat, protein and carbs. To limit cholestoral, use straight egg whites instead of whole farm eggs. You will need about 1/2 cup of egg whites to replace two farm eggs. Watching dairy intake? We recommend swapping out the cow’s milk for a nut milk alternative like soy or almond. For more protein, throw in a handful of cubed ham. This recipe comes to us via Blue Apron.
