Sometimes you just need a little greenness to help you feel cleansed and reinvigorated! This often happens to me the day after a heavy dinner, or when I just feel I want a simple healthy snack in between meals. Smoothies also make a great breakfast on the go on pre-workout energizer!
Happy National Donut Day! What better way to celebrate than to bake up these gluten-free dairy-free donuts? You can even make them vegan too.

This recipe by Will Frolic for Food looks amazing AND healthy, and is perfect for Hanukkah! We love anything involving squash, not only for its nutritional properties and fiber content, but for that slightly nutty flavor that immediately brings to mind images of cozying up around a fire when it’s cold outside. Top these donuts with some melted chocolate and powdered sugar for a decadent dessert, or have them with a hot cup of coffee for breakfast!
Fresh, fragrant lemons. They’re the perfect flavor to gently wake you up on an early Sunday morning. Combine them with the subtle crunchiness and nuttiness of poppy seeds, and you’ve got a delicious unique breakfast. This make-from-scratch recipe from Allyson Kramer is gluten-free and vegan, and super easy once you collect the ingredients.
Have you ever heard of millet? It’s an ancient grain that is commonly served in India and east Asia, but in the US is less common. When it does appear, it is usually combined with other grains. Millet grains are small and round and have a delicate flavor, think: a smaller gluten-free version of couscous. Their texture is also unique – it’s a bit crunchy, even when cooked. So if you’re a fan of al dente pasta, you might enjoy millet over another softer grain like rice or quinoa. As an added bonus, it’s also high in antioxidants and magnesium!
