I make this pudding when I want something indulgent tasting, but don’t feel like eating a ton of sugar. I love mixing carob powder and cocoa powder for a more complex chocolate flavour. The carob powder also adds a natural sweetness as an added bonus. If you don’t have carob, I suggest using a bit more cocoa powder and sweetener since it will be less sweet without the carob. Serve cold or heated up!
Omelets are a filling breakfast dish that’s equally at home for dinner. The almost effortless preparation makes them ideal when you’re pressed for time, and their versatility makes them great for eating regularly and never getting bored. Indeed, you can use any omelet-worthy ingredients you have on hand, from sausage to spinach, bacon to bell peppers. We like the simplicity of this Mushroom and Egg White Omelet, though, because you can cook one for each person in just a few minutes. Cook all the mushrooms and scallions at once, then you need only cook the egg base. For a full meal, add a side of home fries or hash browns.
Raw energy bites are one of the easiest and tastiest snacks to keep on hand during a busy week. Try making a batch on the weekend to store in the fridge so you can grab a few when hunger strikes. They’re also a great way to get essential omega-3 fats into your nutrition to your diet as many are made with ingredients like hemp seeds, ground flax, almonds or cashews.

Filled with dates, whole grain oats, and delicious mix-ins of warming spices and superfood ingredients, OJAS STUDIO date and grain bites are a healthy snack dream. They're made with real fruit and no artificial sweeteners, too. They're perfect for eating on the go when you just need a few bites to tide you over till your next meal. Our favorite flavor is Ginger, Cinnamon, and Chia, but they also come in Cardamom, Cinnamon, and Walnut and Coconut, Fig, and Orange Peel varieties, too.
One is sweetened with maple syrup (or any liquid sweetener), and the other is sweetened with jam. I used a fruit juice sweetened jam in my fave flavor–blueberry. I am partial to the jammy version as it has better texture and extra fruit flavor, but I wanted to give you options. Plus some flavors (ahem…orange) aren’t easy to find in a jam. Both of the recipes can serve as templates for making any flavor you like. Just switch up the type of juice or jam and you can have snacks of just about any fruity sort.
Though avocado toast has become something of a cliché, it's popular for a reason—a slice of hearty toast spread with creamy avocado, drizzled with a bit of olive oil, and sprinkled with salt makes a simple, filling, and tasty snack (or breakfast!). If you need a little more excitement than what the basic formula offers, we've got plenty of different ways to give it a twist. One of our favorites is this bright vegan version, which gets its springtime vibe from sweet baby peas, slivers of crisp radish, and fresh basil.
For a savory snack under 60 calories, spread 1 tablespoon of low-fat cream cheese onto a slice of smoked salmon (lox) and roll it up. This salmon pinwheel is high in protein and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, though the salt used to cure the salmon boosts the sodium content. Use a little less cream cheese and you can have two pinwheels for under 100 calories.
