Bravo for Brunch!

Every brunch calls for some kind of savory egg-based dish; we’re partial to the frittata. Everything you love about a quiche but without the fuss of a crust, frittatas make for great brunch fare because they can be served hot or at room temperature. A simple whisk of eggs and dairy poured over sautéed vegetables, they’re extremely forgiving and flexible.

Table for Two

If you’ve never roasted your own beets, trust us — it’s worth the effort. The flavor and texture are far superior to those of the prepackaged cooked beets found at the grocery store. The best beet salads are simple and require only a few ingredients. Pairing beets with creamy goat cheese is a must, as the flavors complement each other perfectly.

A Fresh Start

Nutrient-dense smoothies are a great way to work more plants into your diet, especially for those who don’t enjoy cooked vegetables or salads. They’re easy to prepare, especially if you portion out some of the ingredients in advance; you can store most solid ingredients in individual freezer bags.
