1. Apple Chickpea Kale Salad

This Apple Chickpea Kale Salad from Caryn Carruthers is a delight in contrasting textures, temps, and flavors. Yes, this is a salad, but it’s not your salad to devour your raw vegetables. It’s the kind of salad with hot and cold greens, crunchy apples, meaty chickpeas, the slight tingle of a thinly sliced red onion, and more to keep you interested in what your next bite combination will be. A better name is required for a salad like this – remember, it’s a smorgasbowl!

As a child I loved adding granola to sweetened yogurt. The textures and flavors were so delicious, and it was filling too! This Chai Spice Grain-Free Granola from Shivangi Rao has warm, subtle flavors that remind you of a warm cup of Indian chai. It also contains a lot of healthy fats, protein and fiber and is free of grains and refined sugars. Enjoy with plant-based milk, mix it with fresh fruit or use it to make yogurt, chia pudding or overnight oats.

If you go grain-free, you’re basically telling the world that you won’t be eating grains anymore; save a few granolas out there. You settle down to eating something else from your breakfast bowl. Here’s a cereal bowl that’s gotten a major upgrade. This Sweet Potato Cereal Bowl from Caryn Carruthers is rich in warm sweet potatoes, crunchy with roasted nuts and seeds, and it pops sweet and fresh with pomegranates and blueberries. Best of all, though, it won’t send you on a sugar high that will make you fall back to earth shortly after eating. Instead, you will be completely satisfied and get your cereal back!

If you’re looking for a good post-workout meal with the right combination of macro and micronutrients, this Fermented Beet and Quinoa Bowl from Zuzana Fajkusova and Nikki Lefler is what you need! You will want to let the beets ferment for 24 hours before assembling the bowl. Hoverer, if you’re short on time or haven’t considered this step, you can omit the fermentation and cook the dish with freshly grated beets instead.
