Lunch 5-Minute Detox Salad

Minimalist Baker  |  Full Recipe

This may appear to be just another salad, but don’t be fooled. A bed of greens is topped with veggies, sunflower seeds, ripe avocado for healthy fats, and dried cranberries for a little sweetness. Then drizzle on tahini, lemon, and olive oil and season with salt and pepper. It requires just 5 minutes and 1 bowl to make, and the dressing doesn’t require mixing! 

Snack Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Detoxdly  |  Full Recipe

Crunchy and crispy on the outside, soft and sweet on the inside, and most importantly, totally healthy for the body. Pairing these sweet potato fries with avocado sauce is just perfect, because the beta-carotene in sweet potato is better metabolized when paired with healthy fats, and avocado fits the bill. This is the definition of healthy indulgence!

Dinner Chickpea Stuffed Eggplant

Dishing Up The Dirt  |  Full Recipe

If you are feeling strapped for time and don’t think you have energy to cook a proper meal for yourself or your family, dishing up the dirt is for you. This chickpea stuffed eggplant only takes about 30 minutes to cook, and it looks absolutely delicious! Garlic, onions, tomatoes, tahini, crushed red pepper flakes, and lemon juice...how can you go wrong?

Dessert Black Bean Brownies

Chocolate Covered Katie  |  Full Recipe

These brownies are a healthier version of their sugar-filled alternative that taste anything but healthy. Full of cocoa powder, oats, agave, vanilla extract and chocolate chips, they're a decadently fudgy treat that will satisfy your cravings without any of the guilt. If you've never tried a black bean brownie, do yourself a favor and hop on the wagon.
