Ready to get cooking? They’re all simple to make and contain nourishing ingredients to help you power through your day…until it’s time for happy hour. Um, she has you covered then, too!

  • Soft and Doughy Protein Pretzels

    These doughy bites are a fun rainy-day activity and they require only a few wholesome ingredients (yeast is not one of them, phew!). Thanks to the clever combo of Greek yogurt and whole wheat flour, each “feel-good pretzel” delivers 10 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber. We love them warm and soft out of the oven dipped in spicy mustard or warm marinara sauce. They’re ridiculously good and freeze well, too! P.S. Skip the egg wash and salt toppers, and form bagels as an alternative.

  • Sesame-Garlic Edamame

    This recipe takes just five minutes to make and it looks (and smells) like a gourmet dish. It features nutrient-rich soybeans (aka edamame), which are a stellar source of fiber and plant-based protein. Keep a bag of edamame stashed in your freezer, and you’ll always have an easy snack on hand.

  • Fruit-Infused Frosé

    This tasty 3-ingredient treat is a perfect sip for quarantine happy hours. It’s loaded with sweet cherries and perfect pineapples and then blended with a light and fruity rosé wine. Feel free to swap in any other frozen fruit you have on hand and any leftover (preferably on the sweeter side) white wine for the rosé. Cheers!
