Recipes like our Purple Fruit Salad and Cottage Cheese with Raspberry Honey are ideal for a midday pick-me-up.

These stuffed dates can be an easy dessert or snack when you’re craving something sweet. We love the mild flavor of almond butter, but natural peanut butter would be a nice substitute. A flaky sea salt like Maldon elevates the flavour. Be sure to sprinkle the salt over the dates before the chocolate has set.

This garlic hummus recipe couldn’t be easier—just toss a few ingredients in the food processor and whir away!

Fruit & Yogurt Smoothie

Roasted Garlic Hummus
