As your freezer is now most likely fully stocked with your family's favorite proteins, why not spice things up (literally) and prepare our CK Smokey Chipotle Apple Turkey Meatballs to grab the next time you crave a housebound pasta party?
Our CK Red Lentil Dal is a CK home meal delivery menu favorite - we add turmeric and ginger for extra TLC and immunity-boosting goodness and toss in a little fresh (or frozen) spinach for extra plant power. Healthy eating doesn't have to lack adventure. While we are not able to travel the world during this time, we can bring a little bit of the world into our own kitchens by channeling inspiration from the places on our (future) bucket list.
While we are practicing social distancing, we can still share in the joy, comfort and life-giving properties of healthy, delicious meals. So, let's all make this simple - and SUPER cozy - CK-style Cacio e Pepe (of course, with an added healthy twist), using ingredients found in our pantries and fridges, and make a virtual toast to our health, happiness and finding comfort in the simple things.
Are we channeling the 1980's for dinner tonight? Maybe. But, this is NOT your grandma's "Baked Potato Bar" dinner recipe. We are replacing heavy fat-laden butter, bacon (or, in true 80's style, bacon BITS) and sour cream with fresh vegetables, nutritional yeast (to cure that "cheesy" craving), herbs and our favorite cilantro-lime organic dressing.
We asked local plant-based chef, college student & creator of the blog "Naturally Lara", Lara MacIntyre, to share with us her top 20 nutrition brands of 2019. No surprise that we share many of the same favs (Siete Foods, GT's, Primal Kitchen...). Are any of your favorite brands on Lara's hot list?
The New Year is HERE, which means millions of people around the world are making "resolutions" that focus on restriction and depletion, instead of gain. What if, in 2020, we are kind to ourselves and frame our resolutions in a positive, nurturing way that ultimately serves us better?
In this week’s CK delivery, Monday & Tuesday clients will be receiving samples of our delicious protein bars: Coconut, Chocolate, and Peanut Butter. All of our bars, made with 6 ingredients or less, not only deliver an equal balance of protein, carbs, fiber, and good fat, but they also taste amazing (hint: stock up for the holidays with our special CK offer code!).
For years we wanted to improve our packaging and produce a bar in a resealable bag, so you could break off a hunk of chocolate, close up the package up without getting chocolate all over your bag or car. And I wanted to make chocolate that was indulgent like milk chocolate without dairy. We made all of that happen with the introduction of our new Almond Milk Chocolate bars!
Nutritional moderation (the 90-10) means allowing yourself to live a life of optimal health and nutrition and also of enjoyment and realism. It takes some time to get to the point of eating really healthy 90% of each day, but with practice and patience you can get there.
Wondering what to do with all of those Turkey Day leftovers?
