Cauliflower tostadas with avocado, cabbage and chipotle cream with lime slices

Happy 2022, everyone! I’m so ready to recommit to healthy eating right about now and this menu is a great place to start. Below you’ll find a line up of nourishing, plant-rich recipes to kick off the year feeling good. You’ll find the shopping list at the bottom of the page.

Super Seed Salad with Miso Vinaigrette

I don’t know about you, but I’m craving all things bright and crunchy right now. This salad is SO GOOD and fills the bill. Make it more of a main but adding this simple chicken or a dish of lentils on the side.

Instant Pot Italian White Bean Soup

This Instant Pot soup has been a consistent hit on the blog. For a vegetarian version, simply leave out the sausage or swap in a cup or two of cooked grains or pasta once the soup is done. 

Cauliflower Tostadas with Chipotle Sauce

Though not exactly traditional tostadas, these are definitely crave-worthy. The dish is on the lighter side, so add a side of homemade or canned pinto or black beans embellished with a spoonful of salsa.

Miso Ginger Salmon

This is one of the best ways to make the most of salmon and is simple to prepare. Miso is one of those coveted fermented foods that adds great flavor to this glaze.  Serve with brown rice along with a salad of thinly sliced cucumber and radishes tossed with seasoned rice vinegar and black pepper.

Crunchy Asian-Style Salad with Tofu or Chicken Skewers

Every time I pull this one out of the archives, it’s a big hit a cross the board. It’s light and plenty satisfying. Tune into my Instagram to check out my demo of the recipe.

Avocado Toast with Soft Egg

This is my three-ingredient answer to breakfast or lunch any day of the week. Yesterday I added a pile of arugula, other times I play around with various seasonings depending on my mood.

Creamy Banana Date Shake

This shake is just four ingredients — milk, banana, dates, and walnuts — but truly tastes like a creamy shake to me. Add a small handful of baby spinach before blending for an added pop of nutrition. Enjoy before or after a workout or as an afternoon pick-me-up
