Lighter Latin: 4 Healthy Recipes for a Healthier You!

It’s time to feed your body right with healthy, wholesome dishes that will keep you going strong all year long. And we're here to help! 

Start the year off with a good breakfast. Cranberry Almond Oatmeal combines fiber filled rolled oats with protein rich almond milk, sweet agave, tangy dried cranberries, warm cinnamon, and crunchy almonds for a meal full of nutrition and flavor.

For lunch, try a bright bowl of Carrot Ginger Soup. We’ve upped the amount of immune boosting ginger, added caraway seeds, zesty orange juice, just a splash of thick heavy cream, and a drizzle of cayenne olive oil making a smooth soup that satisfies all of your tastebuds. 

Paprika Chicken Skewers are great as a lunch or dinner option. Chicken thighs marinated in avocado oil, ground ancho, black pepper, and paprika are skewered and grilled, then paired with perfectly crisp roasted chili potatoes. It's a lighter version of the classic meat-and-potatoes dish.

And let’s not forget dessert! Double Dark Chocolate Avocado Pudding gives you a protein rich and heart healthy luscious pudding you can enjoy guilt free. From breakfast to dessert, we’ve got you covered with healthy meals bursting with flavor and nutrition.
