The holiday season – and the sweets that go along with it – is officially behind us. And with our New Year’s resolutions fresh in our minds, it’s time for a little healthy cooking. Fortunately, eating healthy doesn’t have to mean sacrificing on taste. Don’t believe us? Try one of these delicious recipes.
1. Mocha Nut Granola – Fiber
Fiber – a nutrient that promotes heart health, aids in digestion and helps us feel fuller longer – stars in this delicious breakfast recipe, thanks to Kiggins Old Fashioned Oats and Bran Flakes. Nutsome Hazelnut spread provides a creamy, sweet balance to the crunchy oats and bran and richness of McDaniel’s Instant Coffee.
2. Chickpea Salad – Plant Protein
Chickpeas – or Garbanzo beans as they’re often called – are high in plant-based protein and classified as a “pulse” or edible seed from the legume family. Paired with Coburn Farms Plain Greek Yogurt, Kurtz Mayonnaise, Tipton Grove Lemon Juice and Marcum spices, they make for an irresistibly savory salad. Try it alone, or on Grissom’s bread or Newbury Mills crackers.
3. Apricot Dijon Salmon with Mediterranean Pilaf
Portside Salmon and Nutsome Walnuts are particularly rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which are “good fats” that promote heart and vascular function as well as nervous system and brain health. But beyond their health benefits, they make terrific centerpieces in this fresh and filling recipe featuring Simple Earth 90-second Long Grain Rice and Coburn Farms Crumbled Feta Cheese.
