Buddha bowls are one of my favorite dishes. They’re great because you get to combine a lot of different ingredients and get essential vitamins and minerals from the various veggies.
Fortunately, green smoothie recipes have improved by leaps and bounds since stepping into the health limelight. And while you can buy a slurp-worthy spinach smoothie, making your own is so much better (and cheaper). You can experiment with flavors, make adjustments if the taste of the greens is too potent (or not potent enough), and control the amount of sugar, protein, and anything else you’d like to monitor more closely.
An easy way to get in more greens is by adding a handful of spinach to a smoothie. I choose smoothies over juice. Juicing removes all the good stuff and you miss out on the whole food benefits. Why waste all the pulpy goodness? I like to keep my smoothies simple with just a few ingredients.
The tropics are nice, but for many of us they are far away. This delicious mango green smoothie allows you to take a trip to the balmy tropics from the comfort of your own temperate home.
To those who do in fact live in the tropics, don’t feel left out! You can enjoy this lovely green smoothie, too. No matter where you’re from, mangoes, bananas, spinach, and coconut are a winning combination. Or perhaps you’d enjoy a beverage with some slightly more temperate flavors.

This recipe is probably the best way to use up leftover bits and pieces ever imagined. There’s something uniquely lovely about wraps, and the ability to make up some delicious wholesome raw veggie wraps from your kitchen scraps seems to good to be true — but it isn’t! And these wraps are so much better than your typical wrap because the wraps themselves are made of veggies! It’s veggies all the way down, people!
You can make these lovely wraps out of whatever you happen to have lying around and they should turn out awesome, so long as you stick to the proportions in the recipe.
There’s so many things you can do with zucchini. We’ve already had plenty to say about the wondrous versatility of this modest little squash. So let’s focus instead on this amazing persimmon dressing!
If you’ve never tasted a well-ripened persimmon, then you simply don’t know what you’re missing. If tasted before they have had a chance to get really, really ripe — we’re talking almost fermented, even — persimmon is aggressively astringent and unpleasant. But as the fruit matures and the tannin levels are reduced, it becomes one of the sweetest and most incredible tasting fruits you’ll find anywhere. But it does take patience! You have to let the persimmon ripen until it becomes so soft it is squishy. Which makes it ideal for dressings!
As always, ginger provides a lovely spicy foil for the sweetness of the persimmon dressing. Give it a try!
A hearty green soup soothes the soul! And it’s not bad for the body, either. This yummy soup is full of only the simplest whole food ingredients, and with all that color you know it’s chock-full of nutrients, enzymes, and phytochemicals. You can substitute out pretty much any ingredient in this green soup to suit your preferences, but make sure to use lots of greens! Green soup is great for breakfast or lunch, or even for a light dinner. You can also enjoy it as a side dish if you’re enjoying a more extravagant dinner.
We’ve all heard about how we are what we eat. For those of us that grew up eating a SAD diet (that is, the Standard American Diet), the switch to a more health-conscious and intentional approach to food brings all kinds of benefits. Living healthy can help you to live happy. And not just in the obvious…
This Zucchini Seaweed Salad isn’t the first time we’ve featured an awesome recipe involving zucchini noodles, but it probably is the first time the noodles have been overshadowed. The real star of this meal is the seaweed.
For people not in the know, the concept of eating seaweed might seem a bit odd. For some of us, seaweed is just that spooky stuff you have to swim past in lakes sometimes or that green stuff that heaps up on beaches. But seaweed is actually super cool, and really good for you to boot.
People have been eating seaweed salad for a long time. It’s a staple in Japanese cuisine, and is prized not only for it’s unique salty taste, but for the broad range of micronutrients it packs. Seaweed isn’t actually a plant, but a multicellular algae. It’s a good source of B vitamins such as niacin and riboflavin (though not B12!), as well as copper, manganese, calcium and iron. Seaweed salad is a tasty, novel way to add some healthful vitamins and minerals, and it’s super simple to boot.
