    Deep Purple Smoothie

    This drink is almost too pretty to sip. And even better, it sneaks in a serving of antioxidant-rich red cabbage, which adds to this smoothie’s stunning shade without making it taste too, well, cabbage-y. In this drink, it’s blended with tangy kefir, sweet-tart blueberries, and chia seeds, which supply ample amounts of fibre and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

    Yogurt Marinated Chicken with Lemon and Cilantro

    Yogurt completely transforms the texture of these chicken thighs, making them tender and flavourful with bright notes of lemon and cilantro. Ideal for a day trip, these can be marinated in the morning and cooked in the evening, but they also work well when cooked in advance and packed for a picnic to be eaten cold. Marinade mentions Marinate chicken thighs for anywhere between 4 and 24 hours. Discard excess marinade that has been in contact with raw chicken. It should not be consumed uncooked.
