This easy and delicious dish can be prefect for school lunches. Make it the night before or have your little chef in the kitchen help you on any week night for dinner. They will have a lot of fun cutting these rounds
Can you think of something more refreshing than a melon salad in a hot summer day? The sweetness, citrus and saltiness from this combination makes this dish very satisfying. I choose Bulgarian Feta over Greek because of the law content of sodium. But again its a matter of choice.
Refreshing easy and delicious! Super healthy too!
You would never know that this non-dairy Mac and and Cheese is made with potatoes, carrots and sunflower seeds. Yes, that's it. The combination of these 2 veggies and seeds create a creamy sauce that would satisfy any Mac'n Cheese lover! You can alternate using cashews instead of the sunflower seeds. It would just not be recommended if you have a tree nut allergy. You can even use gluten free macaroni and now you really have an exceptional healthy dish!
This recipe is a cross from a cinnamon roll and an apple pie. It's low in sugar and you could substitute the regular pie crust for a gluten free one, found in a health food store.
We prepared this recipe in our cooking school during a kids class, and everyone had so much fun rolling out the dough and placing the cinnamon mixture on the pie log then cutting them into circles. It was for sure a hit!
I had the opportunity of serving this Smoothie on our last presentation at Macy's Dadeland Mall as part of their event "Breakfast at Macy's" (a remake of the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's). Everyone was fascinated with its flavor but most importantly, with the fact that adding Spinach and Avocado to a breakfast smoothie can improve the lasting feel of being nourished and energized throughout the morning. This is a simple recipe to make and it takes away the decision making of what to have for breakfast when you are in a hurry. Throw everything into the blender and go! You'll be satisfied for hours!!!
Kale is here to stay. A "wild" member of the cabbage family, this rough green can be cooked or made into salads such as the classic Caesar Salad created by August Escoffier for his friend Caesar Ritz. Kale is high in fiber (which helps digestion), full of phytonutrients which help detoxify our bodies and has a wide array of vitamins and minerals that are beneficial for the whole family. Make sure you "massage" the dressing on to the Kale so it really absorbs the flavor of the dressing. Serve it with grilled Portobellos, tofu or add it to a wrap for a twist!
Sweet healthy and delicious combination of lemon, vinegar and beets with a touch of maple syrup! Your kids will love this one!
Paella is considered one of Spain's national dishes, depending on the region it can be made with seafood, meats or a mix of both. At the Real Food Academy we like to prepare it with Black Rice
, just precook the rice or sorghum in the broth (keeping about 1 cup for step # 5) and top with Kalamata Olives and Artichokes for a cool flavor profile!
When you eat Cauliflower you are adding an array of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other phytochemicals to your body that you don't get from chicken. Traditional chicken wings are a "favorite" in the US but if you are really looking for flavor, crispiness and a vegan option
you need to be looking into this Cauliflower "Wings" Recipe. It is easy to make and probably costs less than a bag of wings from the supermarket. Mix in some Broccoli florets and surprise your guests with this cool, not traditional recipe!
Perfect for Valentine's Day Dinner! This grilled romaine lettuce tossed with roasted beets, berries, pistachios and homemade dressing is easy to make, can be prepared ahead of time and is full of antioxidants and healthy fats. If you don't have a grill, you can always broil the lettuce(only for 1 or 2 minutes). Turn this salad into an entree by serving it with shrimp or grilled fish!
