Zucchini Noodle Bowl with Shrimp and Tomatoes

Gluten-Free | Grain-Free | Dairy-Free Variation | Vegan Variation


This recipe highlights vegetables that are in season right now—zucchini and tomatoes—as well as a popular kitchen tool—a spiralizer—that turns them into noodles. Vegetable noodles are a healthy alternative to pasta made from processed flour. They are full of fiber and free of gluten and the refined carbohydrates that raise blood sugar and insulin levels and promote inflammation throughout the body.

Coconut Chai Chia Seed Pudding

VEGAN  |  GLUTEN-FREE  |  DAIRY-FREE


This light and fluffy pudding is rich and satisfying. Because it's made with chia seeds, it has a texture similar to tapioca pudding. Chai spices like cinnamon and ginger add flavor as well as health benefits. They've been found to lower inflammation, improve digestion and blood sugar control, and support the body's natural detoxification mechanisms. This pudding takes only minutes to make, but it has to sit overnight in the fridge before you can eat it, so plan ahead and make it in advance.
