Pesto is a fantastic way to use up a large amount of greens before they go bad, but don’t feel like you need to confine yourself to basil and spinach! Leftover asparagus also plays nicely with a typical pesto recipe. Use this recipe as a template for trying out different raw or lightly steamed veggies as the base for your own pestos!

Eggs for breakfast are a nutritionally sound choice, but don’t get stuck in that rut! You can scramble tofu for a similar dish with its own unique flavor profile. This dish punches up the plant-based foods even more with the inclusion of peas and broccolini, but don’t feel trapped by those ideas: this is a great dish for using up whatever greens you’ve got hanging around.

And who doesn’t? Pineapple and coconut are an awesome combination, which is why this super simple treat will delight you one those spring temperatures finally start creeping around the corner. For a more adult flavor, swap out the vanilla extract and use rum extract instead.

We strive to give you our best recipes in all our reviews, but we all know that when it comes to desserts, sometimes our hands are just a bit tied by the need to keep the sugar low. This recipe, however, will knock your socks off. The soft muffin-top like cookies are beautifully spiced and just sweet enough and packed with nutrients from the oats and pumpkin.

We’ve taste-tested this frosting with and without cocoa powder, and if you’re not a fan of chocolate frosting, good news! Without the cocoa, this recipe is, well, maybe not the most festive color, but it’s a darn tasty vanilla frosting that smacks of brown sugar. If you’re aiming to make sure your sweet treats bring some nutritional benefit to the table, this is one frosting you’ve got to try.
