1. Moroccan Carrot Salad

If I could have only one salad for the rest of my life, this Moroccan Carrot Salad by Jackie Akerberg would be it. Eating the same salad for the rest of my days may sound repetitive, but it’s so good that I just wouldn’t carrot all! The carrot “noodles” are such a fun change from traditional salad greens. The carrots and other ingredients come together with the citrusy dressing to create the perfect balance of sweet, spicy, tangy and refreshing. The chickpeas and cashews provide an abundance of protein, which means this salad can be a hearty main or a delicious side to any dish.

4. Banana Pudding

We love sweets. We try to avoid refined sugar, so at home we often use dates as a sweetener (see Date Caramel recipe). We love medjool dates – they are sweet, soft, slightly chewy and provide fiber and nutrients. This Banana Pudding by WeHeal came together the other night when I was craving something sweet, and as I usually do, use items I already have to make something healthy. It came out SO good and it only contains 5 ingredients! Ingredients I always have in my kitchen. And it offers an added boost of protein from the tofu.
5. Healthy, Moist & Melt-In-Your-Mouth Chocolate Cake
This chocolate cake will melt in your mouth! Wholesomely decadent and not too sweet, this Healthy, Moist & Melt-In-Your-Mouth Chocolate Cake by Julie Zimmer is simple to make and good for you. Naturally sweetened with two ripe bananas, a bit of maple syrup, and two tablespoons of granulated sugar cane, this cake is great for an afternoon snack.
6. Homemade Gummy Bears

Agar agar is a jelly-like substance obtained from algae, but what’s most interesting is that it’s a perfect plant-based substitute for gelatin! You can use it for so many things. It can be used to make jellies, flans, mousse, vegan ice cream, vegan cheeses, vegan cheesecake, jams without sugar, sauces, and broth. The possibilities are endless with agar agar. This Homemade Gummy Bears by Alejandra Olmedo uses it to make the gummy texture we all know and love in gummy bears.
7. Grilled Vegetable Wrap with Mashed Black Beans
8. Strawberry Galette

Fresh seasonal fruit desserts are our favorite. And strawberry season has arrived!! This Strawberry Galette by WeHeal is simple, sweet and satisfying, oil-free and does not contain dairy, eggs, or refined sugar. It’s rustic and sweet, but not too sweet. And would be lovely with a little cashew or coconut cream for a more decadent dessert.
9. Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Pecan Macaroons
At first blush, these Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Pecan Macaroons by Jackie Akerberg may seem like any other coconut-date macaroon, but they are knock-your-socks-off good! Not only are they incredibly simple to make, but their sweet and salty flavor, combined with the rich dark chocolate, make them a total crowd-pleaser.
10. Adobo Garlic Fries

In just one bite you can taste the freshness of the potato and the zesty flavor of the adobo and garlic combination. The mix of spices in this Adobo Garlic Fries by Desiree Rodriguez that make up the adobo used on these fries –cumin, black pepper, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder and turmeric are so powerful that the smell of all of them together will make your mouth water.
