Did you buy the cherries and just snacking on them? Try them in your next meal instead! We love this recipe because it screams seasonal produce, flavor, and summer.
One of the most common mistakes we see when making changes to our overall intake is under fueling- meaning not eating often enough during the day. This leaves us coasting with a low blood sugar which can affect us mentally and physically... eventually to a restrict/binge cycle way of living. These DIY protein bars can keep you on point with your meal pattern, so give this recipe a try if you have some protein powder in your pantry.

A popular goal amongst our clientele is to add more cruciferous vegetables or leafy greens daily, so try this if you need a boost!

Saag paneer is a classic Indian dish of cooked spinach studded with cubes of seared cheese.
The spices in this dish will get you out of a meal planning rut. Consider it a "plan B" meal if you don't have time to defrost a protein for dinner- the paneer cheese is already waiting for you in the fridge... Here it goes!
