Orange Avocado Spinach Salad

This month’s salad recipe offers a delicious and easy way to get more tasty greens into your diet. Featuring healthy oils, zesty vinegars and lots of different textures and flavors, chances are this will become a favorite go-to salad.

Asian Style Collard Greens

Full of vitamins and minerals, collard greens are surely one of nature’s super foods. Like other leafy greens, collard greens have cancer-preventive properties and may offer protection against heart disease, as well. This Asian style side dish – featuring garlic, ginger and tamari sauce – is as tasty as it is easy to prepare. Remember, it’s good to go green!

Thai Coleslaw

The term “coleslaw” is an Anglicization of the Dutch term “koolsla,” which is short for “koolsalade”, or cabbage salad. This Thai version has a great blend of flavors and textures – tangy, slightly sweet, crispy, and crunchy – and is a beautiful mix of colors. Serve it as a side dish or throw in some leftover chicken for a main salad course.

Banana Oatmeal Muffins

These moist and flavorful muffins make a perfect on-the-go breakfast or afternoon snack. Unlike tempting, empty calorie baked goods, this month’s healthy muffin recipe is tasty and guilt-free. Yogurt replaces some of the oil in the recipe and keeps the muffins moist. Consider freezing an extra batch to have on hand for those cold winter mornings or unexpected visitors.
