    Limey Orange Smoothie

    Here’s a smoothie that even Bugs Bunny would go crazy for. This fetching bright orange drink blends a winning combo of sweet veggies and fruit, creamy cashew butter, tangy yogurt, and lime zest into a nutrient-packed smoothie that doesn’t hold back on flavour. Bonus: both orange bell pepper and carrot contain a surfeit of beta carotene, an antioxidant that is converted to vitamin A in the body and functions to improve bone, eye, and immune health.

    Sweet and Sour Brussels Sprout Tempeh Stir-Fry

    This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
