I love buddha bowls because they are easy to make, and they are a well balanced meal! This one features roasted spring vegetables and chickpeas in a silky tahini lemon sauce. It is packed with fiber, protein and plenty of nutrients, and it makes the perfect weeknight meal! If you like another vegetable better than some of the ones used here feel free to swap them out for your favorite!
This salad is light and refreshing but also substantial enough to be a main dish or lunch entree. It features some of my favorite spring produce, asparagus, strawberries and peas an it is so delicious! Also it is packed with fiber, protein and nutrients so you can feel good about serving this to your family!
Ranch dressing is an essential part of being Minnesotan. I loved it growing up, so now I make a healthier one with a tofu base! The tofu acts as a blank canvas that can be transformed into something just as delicious as traditional ranch dressing! My favorite way to serve this is with a crisp romaine salad, but it is really good with any raw veggies for dipping or drizzling over them!
Short on time? Here is an easy to make recipe with just 5 ingredients to end up with a pork roast that is full of flavor! It will slow cook in the crock pot while you have time to do other things.

It is fun to make your own Easter candy at home, and that way you know exactly what goes into it! One of my favorites growing up was raspberry cream truffle eggs, so I like to make my own healthier version now! These are always a big hit at Easter, and they happen to be vegan and gluten free!
The spring is the perfect time to enjoy asparagus! My favorite way to enjoy it is roasted with a little olive oil and sea salt. Here, I combine it with green beans and drizzle a tangy lemon tahini sauce for a delicious combination! This would be perfect for an Easter side dish!
