Cheesy potato casserole was always an essential item at my family’s Easter brunch celebrations growing up! So I have made a veganized version so that I can still enjoy it, and since several others in my family are trying to eat less dairy. For the base of the cheese sauce I use sweet potatoes and cashew butter to give them richness, so this tastes rich without being heavy on your stomach. This is easy to make, and so good!
Now that spring is here, it is nice to enjoy lighter food. This salad is substantial enough to be a meal, yet light and won’t weigh you down.

I used to get really excited about Easter candy when I was little, and I still do as an adult. Mainly because I have fun making my own!

This salad is not only colorful and pretty, but good for you too! It is packed with fiber and vitamins from the veggies, and it is so good! Beets and carrots are about to come into season here now that it is spring, so it is the perfect time to make it!
Chicken is one of the most important products to purchase organic according to a 2006 Consumer Reports study. Organic chicken does not contain the antibiotics, toxic hormones and pesticides that commercially raised birds do.
Organically fed chickens that are pasture-raised are free to peck at grass and bugs are the best birds to buy as their meat will be leaner and more flavorful. In addition, pasture-raised chicken meat is higher in minerals, vitamins, and omega 3 fatty acids than its conventional counterpart. Pasture-raised chickens also naturally produce rich, healthy eggs that are unmatched by anything sold at the grocery store.
While buying organic products may increase your grocery bill, the health benefits are worth it. Here at Fresh & Natural, two of your customer favorites are Gerber’s Amish Farm Chicken and Larry Schultz’s Organic chicken.
