Whether you are looking to adopt a nutrient-dense, plant-based diet or are just trying to find healthier alternatives to some of your favorite dishes, we have great recipes on our site to suit your tastes!

Some of our recipes can look a little intimidating, though. That’s why we created a weekly segment called RecipEASY — to make healthy eating easier. We (Kate and Kayla) make a recipe from our site and break it down to give you helpful tips and modifications. Since neither of us are professional chefs, we are always looking for ways to simplify healthy recipes!

This week we made…


Guacamole is a great snack and can make your day feel a little more festive! Because who doesn’t love some good guacamole?!

This simple recipe highlights the subtle flavors of avocado. In addition the this main star, you’ll need cilantro, red onion, black pepper, lime, and garlic. Find the full measurements here.  

First things first, you’ll need to peel and de-pit the avocados and mash them in a bowl. Finely chop the onion, garlic, and cilantro, and mix them into the bowl with the mashed avocado.

Next, squeeze the lime juice into the mixture and add the black pepper. We found that a teaspoon was a little too much pepper for us, so adjust to your preference.

Then dig in!

Instead of gorging with super salty tortilla chips, try chopping some fresh veggies like peppers, carrots, or celery. If you are really looking for something crunchy, opt for no salt (or low salt) blue corn tortilla chips.
