1. Morning Cleanse Smoothie

Upon rising, your body is “breaking the fast” of sleep. That’s why the first meal is called break-fast. Your body is in a very delicate state at this point, and needs to be gently led into its encounter with food. It is crucial to have a very light and easily digestible breakfast to open the day. This Morning Cleanse Smoothie by Zuzana Fajkusova and Nikki Lefler is the perfect way to do this!
2. Eggplant and Bell Pepper Caponata
Caponata, a vegetable dish consisting of eggplant and bell peppers, is really easy to make considering that you have just to chop everything up, add it to the pot in steps, and let it cook. You get this creamy richness from the eggplant, slight sweetness from the peppers, salt from the capers, and a ton of freshness from all the herbs! It’s really a delicious and simple dish that anyone can make … Yes, anyone! This Eggplant and Bell Pepper Caponata by Kristen Genton is completely customizable, so feel free to experiment with your own additions — some people add sweet vinegar, olives, or beans and sometimes sugar, to offset the tanginess of the vinegar and capers. However you want to eat it, it will be delicious.

4. Baked Deluxe Potatoes With Mayo Sauce
Deluxe potatoes are a delicious alternative to french fries. They are cut into wedges and cooked with aromatic spices until crispy. These Baked Deluxe Potatoes With Mayo Sauce by Yana Chistyakova are a lot healthier than fries you’d get at a drive-thru because they are cooked in the oven. They’re also full of flavor and aroma! You can serve the Deluxe potato wedges with the Vegan Deluxe sauce that is made with homemade vegan mayonnaise (but you can also just buy some at the store), tofu, and spices. These homemade potato wedges are the perfect side dish or snack! You have to try them!
