Here’s a great, fresh-tasting alternative to canned lentil soup. It’s a fast, easy way to access all the healing properties of lentils, which are loaded with folate.

The vegetables and herbs provide antioxidants which neutralize inflammatory and cancer-causing free radicals. And you’ll love the home-cooked flavor.

Mexican Ceviche

This zesty, fresh and healthy appetizer will bring you straight to the shores of Mexico. You’ll love this tender seafood “cooked” in tangy lime and bursting with the euphoric zing of jalapeno.

Pizza On-The-Fly

These homemade, healthy pizzas deliver incredible flavor and a crisp, delicious crust. Conventional pizza is packed with refined carbs and unhealthy fats that spike blood sugar, clog arteries, fire up joints and pack on the pounds. Not so with these pizzas.

They take just minutes to prepare, so you’ll never need to order delivery pizza again!
