Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Maple Syrup, Oil and Salt This simple side dish is one of the easiest and most delicious ways to make Brussels sprouts (IMO!) and takes about 20 minutes to make from start to finish. Brussels sprouts are full of fiber, as well as vitamin K, vitamin C and many other micronutrients . They're also so tasty when roasted and crispy! Plus, adding a touch of maple syrup provides a sweet taste, as well as carbohydrates, which is helpful for athletes look
Creamy Roasted Cauliflower Soup (Without the Cream) This soup is my favorite winter soup because it's so cozy and creamy, but it doesn't have the same heavy feeling of many creamy soups. The roasted cauliflower contributes a rich flavor, while also offering vitamin C, vitamin K and fiber, to name a few nutrients.

A Delicious Holiday Side Dish For Many Dietary Needs After this recipe, I promise to take a break from the maple syrup - it is just so good and the perfect addition to any fall dish!

They won't even realize they're eating cauliflower!
Watermelon and Spinach Salad I recently bought a ton of watermelon (I couldn't help myself!!) and felt inspired to make something that highlighted the summer fruit - even though it's delicious on its own. This summer salad tastes as refreshing as it looks and offers up vegetarian protein (pumpkin seeds and cheese), along with iron (spinach and pumpkin seeds) and some vitamin C (watermelon and spinach). Watermelon also serves up a hearty dose of potassium and beta carotene (wh
When I'm entertaining in the summer, I like to keep things simple and cool (i.e. I try to avoid turning on the oven for fear that my guests will melt before we sit down to eat). These simple avocado boats stuffed with mozzarella and tomato fit the bill, can be served as an appetizer or a side dish and can be made in about 5 minutes. Serve with a dinner made on the grill to keep guests (and you) out of the kitchen and enjoying the sunshine! Ingredients (serves 4): 2 avocados
