Black and White Bean Soup

This creamy flavorful soup has a slight hint of fruitiness from the tomatoes and orange that lift plain beans to new heights. It is simple to make and provides a nice light entree for nights when you have no fresh proteins in the fridge or are looking for protein-and-fiber rich vegan fare.

Holiday Turkey

Following is one of my favorite clean food makeovers: The holiday turkey. I skipped the starchy stuffing, made the (free range, not frozen conventional) turkey “sans gravy”, and filled it with a flavor-rich combination of herbs and citrus that produce a juicy and aromatic bird without all the extraneous starch. Traditionally, this type of a whole-bird preparation calls for at least one stick of butter, but this recipe reduces that and mixes it with olive oil, giving you a nice mix of heart-healthy fat and valuable olive phenols. Happy holidays!
