If you've read Joel Fuhrman's book "Eat To Live" you'll know what to do with this salad. Find a very large bowl and pile on your greens! (His lifestyle plan is High Nutrient Density so you try to get 1 lb of fresh raw greens and 1 lb of cooked and raw veggies everyday.)

A friend forwarded this, from HappyHealthyMama.com, to me, and I was so enamored I made it the very same night.

Served as a side (recipe calculated for 6 servings -- 4 servings would be entree size) with baked cod. So good!

Very Good 4.3/5

Panzanella is an Italian salad that can be found on trendy bistro menus in the hot summer months. This salad was invented when times were tough, as a way to use up stale bread.

Spring Rolls
Very Good 4.3/5
(80 ratings)

This recipe is really easy; it's really more of a process than a recipe. Rice paper wrappers, which are available in the ethnic sections of most larger supermarkets these days, are a great way to wrap your veggies and protein for a quick snack or light lunch.

California Roll in a Bowl
Very Good 4.6/5
(98 ratings)

Delicious and easy, this salad combines all of my favorite sushi ingredients in one bowl! And, because it's based on a California roll, it uses fully cooked seafood.

Vegan Ranch Dressing
Good 3.8/5
(8 ratings)

I love ranch dressing, but it's so heavy! Here's a lighter version that also happens to be vegan. You can substitute regular low-fat mayonnaise and skim milk for the coconut milk and vegan mayo.

Massaged Kale Salad
Very Good 4.3/5
(23 ratings)

Even kale needs some love. Massaging an acid-based dressing into the fibrous green leaves tenderizes them, making the healthy vegetable more palatable in its raw form.
