    Healthy, Homemade Marinara Sauce

    Healthy Homemade Marinara Sauce has the typical base of any marinara (tomatoes, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt) but what set this recipe apart and gives it a healthier edge and a boost of nutrients is the addition of sweet potato and red lentils! By adding in these two ingredients, this marinara recipe packs a protein punch - it contains about 30g of protein! It is also a great source of fiber, vitamin A, C, B6, calcium, iron, potassium, and folate. The key to making this recipe kid-friendly is to use a hand blender/immersion blender once the sauce has come together. You could also use a blender once the sauce has cooled down a bit. This is a versatile, quick, nutritious marinara sauce. It’s a great sauce for pasta dishes, especially lasagna and manicotti, but can also be used a marinara or tomato sauce substitute in any pasta recipe. You could even use it on pizza! Plus, it’s a great alternative to store-bought sauces, which often contain sugar and excessive sodium.

    Healthy, Hearty Lentil “Stoup”

    Super nourishing, satisfying and full of flavor! The whole family will love this "stoup"! We call this recipe a "stoup"-- a sort of stew/soup -- because it is thick, hearty, and filling. It’s perfect for the wintertime. You can add any vegetables you have on hand to make it extra nutrient-rich. Adding a vegetable of every color of the rainbow broadens the spectrum of nutrients in this delicious stoup. If you add more vegetables than the recipe calls for, you may need to add more stock. Fire-roasted tomatoes with their juices are a must. To add an extra depth of flavor, you can add 1/3 cup of red wine to the pan after you sauté the onions, carrots, and celery. The stoup is delicious without it, but even better with it. Served with a crusty whole grain sourdough or other sprouted-grain bread, this recipe is an awesome cold-weather delight.

    Crockpot Apple Sauce

    A fall fave! We’ve been making this recipe for years and it is so simple. It is so delicious and it makes your house smell amazing. If you like your applesauce sweeter you can add some maple syrup or natural sweetener of choice, but it's naturally sweet on it's own. This is delicious warmed up in a mug as a snack on a chilly evening or added to oatmeal with a dash of apple pie spice for breakfast. It keeps in the fridge for about two weeks and freezes well.
