These vegan quesadillas are the perfect nutrient-dense lunch for both kids and adults. They’re great eaten hot or at room temperature, which makes them an easy make-ahead entrée for packed school lunches. These are satisfying as is, but for even more creaminess add soft goat cheese before cooking. If you like quesadillas with a kick, add an extra teaspoon of chipotle paste.

Despite their mixed reputation, potatoes are a healthy and satisfying foundation for a meal. This Loaded Peanut Butter Baked Potato combines the comfort and familiarity of baked potatoes with the exotic flavors of a nutty Thai stir-fry. Make this dish with chicken, shrimp, tofu or simply veggies – it’s great any of these ways!
Chocolate, peanut butter and sweet, ripe cherries. Could it get better than this?! I don’t think so! This smoothie is sweet enough to feel indulgent but healthful enough to qualify as a complete breakfast or afternoon snack. In the summertime, substitute fresh cherries for frozen if you like.
Chia seeds are a nutritional powerhouse – they’re full of protein, are high in antioxidants and in omega-3 oils, among many other healthful benefits. Chia seeds soak up whatever liquid they’re added to and become soft and pudding-like, similar to tapioca. This creamy, nutty pudding is quick and easy and tastes out of this world!
I love making pancakes on weekend mornings, but I often find I’m hungry just an hour or two after eating them. This recipe is different! Not only do these pancakes offer a delightful flavor twist, they’re also packed with protein thanks to the addition of the yogurt and peanut butter, so just a few of them will keep you feeling energetic all morning long. And if you’re lucky, you’ll have some leftover Chocolate Yogurt Cream for fruit (or finger!) dipping later in the day!
The perfect summertime treat, these popsicles are creamy and delicious without being overly sweet. They’re great for kids (and adults!) of all ages. If you don’t have popsicle molds, you can easily turn this mixture into a smoothie by adding a few handfuls of ice cubes. Whether you decide to lick or drink it, this recipe will quickly become a household favorite.The perfect summertime treat, these popsicles are creamy and delicious without being overly sweet.

Father’s Day (June 19th) is just around the corner, so why not take care of Dad for a change and make him a deliciously robust sandwich of peanutty pulled chicken topped with a sweet-sour slaw?
Believe me, this healthier version of the classic pulled pork sandwich will have you fooled, because nothing about it tastes healthy. Its rich, bold flavor is everything you want from a meaty meal, but using boneless skinless chicken thighs keeps it leaner than pulled pork. Don’t be intimidated by the time the chicken takes to prepare, because after you get it simmering away, it does all the work by itself. Then all you have to do is plop this juicy mixture on your favorite bun with a heaping pile of the slaw and sink your teeth right in. Dad will surely approve!
Homemade granola is so much tastier than store-bought. And homemade granola with maple peanut butter? What could be better! My favorite way to eat this is on top of plain yogurt with fresh berries, but it’s also fantastic blended into smoothies, on ice cream for dessert, and mixed into pancake batter.
I love ordering the coconut milk-based soups at Thai restaurants, but sometimes they can be so heavy. This soup is hearty, flavorful, but still light! And it’s ready in a flash.
A restaurant near my house serves grilled salmon with sweet chili and peanut paste, and I can’t help but order it every time I go. I know what you’re thinking: peanut butter and salmon? Not the first combo that comes to mind when you’re planning dinner. But I promise, it works. After one bite of this recipe, I think you too will be convinced.
