1.Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes may be available all year round, but they become even more of a favorite during the colder months of the year. Add quinoa and spinach, and you’ve got an amazing meal on your hands.
Quinoa-Stuffed Sweet Potato Recipe
This recipe is a meal in and of itself to get your eating back on the right track.
This goes above and beyond your usual bone broth by blending the veggies with the stock to create a thick & nutrient-rich soup for a chilly day.
The best part is you can use this method with any stock. When you strain your broth, just reserve your onions, mushrooms, carrots, celery, etc and blend together into perfect harmony.
A hearty & flavorful broth.
3. Blackened Chicken Salad
This gluten-free, paleo, whole 30 recipe is sure to make you feel just a little bit better about your day. It’s crunchy and fresh and packed with protein.
The epitome of fresh and easy.
Not only is this packed with veggies, it’s dairy-free and paleo friendly! If you’re thinking about going paleo for a new years resolution, this recipe could be the perfect place to start.
You would never know this recipe is dairy free.

The brussels sprouts fad may be waning, but that doesn’t mean my love for them is. This recipe calls for a hand full of ingredients and is incredibly satisfying.
7. Instant Pot Black Bean Soup
This is a recipe my husband and I come back to again and again.
It’s a delightful amount of spice, is super hearty, and we love topping it with cheese, sour cream, chives, and tortilla chips.
Instant Pot Black bean Soup
Not only can this be made in a fraction of the time as normal black bean soup, it’s also a no-waste recipe.
8. BBQ Jackfruit Sandwiches
Ok, so if you have been living under a rock, jackfruit is on the rise as a food trend and I’ve been super into it. We’ve been eating a LOT less meat lately and this recipe will fulfill all your bbq cravings.
With canned jackfruit more and more prevalent, this is an incredibly easy recipe to throw together on a weeknight.
This pasta has a handful of ingredients and is even quicker if you sub the carrot top pesto with a store-bought variety.
I like to sub regular pasta with Banza (no this isn’t a sponsored post, I just love the brand) to add even more nutrition to the dish.
With spicy Italian Sausage, & rich pesto this dish is bursting with umami.
If you ask me, mushrooms are good enough to be a meal in and of themselves.
These lil nugs are bathed in oil and spices. Don’t forget to spread them out on a sheet pan so they brown and don’t steam!
Perfect Roasted Mushrooms
I could eat these all day.
