Traditional cake pops are popular these days for kids and adults. It's basically frosted cake in the shape of a ball that's placed on a stick to look like a lollipop. Unfortunately the typical version is a nightmare food filled with sugar, refined flour, artificial flavorings, colorings, etc. We put them in the "Frankenfood Category" - avoid at all costs!  ..

There’s nothing like soup when it’s cold outside. I particularly love soups that are a complete meal in one satisfying bowl. If you're trying to eat a higher plant based diet, which you should, this lentil soup delivers in a big way. The lentils provide protein, the kale is an amazing green, and it has healthy fat. It's not only delicious and easy to prepare, but it is satisfying to even the largest appetites. When eating healthy, this is what you want - something that's so good and filling that you won't want anything "bad" to eat. The flavors make it seem like it took hours to prepare when it's fully ready to eat in about 45 minutes. Enjoy this fast and easy vegan lentil soup. ..

This fast and easy vegan tofu scramble with veggies is an incredibly healthy breakfast that will keep you satisfied for hours. Note that not everyone tolerates soy, so be sure you do before making this a staple in your diet. Further, even if soy is fine for you, purchasing only organic soy products is critical. Over 90% of the soy in the U.S. is GMO and should therefore be avoided at all costs. Buying organic will avoid any GMO contamination.I have a soy-free suggestion that will work nicely as well in this recipe - see below. ..

"Kale is a superfood". "Kale is good for you." We have all heard these things. But what I also hear, too often, from my patients is "I don't like kale." I find the distaste for greens mostly stems from childhood when a person was served greens that were poorly cooked, typically overcooked. No one would like steamed, stringy, overcooked greens. This sauteed kale with shallots recipe is truly delicious, super easy and fast. Even if you don't think you like kale, I bet you'll enjoy this one! ..
