Energy Bites

Energy Bites

Make a batch of these on the weekend, and store them in the freezer to enjoy all week long. These nutrient dense bites are the perfect grab and go snack, or can be used to top fruit- based desserts. Today, we will “crumble” these over poached pears for a touch of sweetness and texture. 

Ginger Poached Pears

Ginger Poached Pears

This very simple poached pear recipe makes a wonderful dessert or refreshing breakfast treat when paired with thick Greek yogurt, chopped walnuts and a sprinkle of cinnamon. The pears don’t have to be perfectly ripe for this to be delicious, as they soften and sweeten during the poaching process. You can also try cooking them in pomegranate juice or adding cinnamon or star anise to change the flavor profile. Handy tips- use a melon baller to remove the core and to remove the stem, make a V-shape around it with a paring knife. 

Summer Bean Salad

Summer Bean Salad

A fresh salad hearty enough to stand alone as an entrée with the added protein from edamame and garbanzo beans. Try subbing red peppers or green beans for some of the ingredients, depending on what is available in your garden or at your local farm market.
