taco salad

I don’t know about you, but after all the overindulgence that generally characterizes the all-American Super Bowl Sunday, well, I’m feeling like some detox fare come Monday. So, today’s Meatless Monday is dedicated to getting you back on track and replacing nachos and pepperoni with some much-needed nutritionally-dense dishes. Here are some inspired recipes from our healthiest blogger friends.

Start off with the all-powerful juice. This 50/50 Juice is half veggies and half fruits – local, organic and bright orange – and comes by way of the Vegan Yack Attack. 

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think light food? Salad, right? But just because it’s lettuce-filled, doesn’t mean it can’t be absolutely satisfying. Check out this Tortilla Salad with Cumin Tofu & Cashew Cream from Love & Lemons. 

Titled For the Cabbage Haters, the Simple Lens has turned this inexpensive, underappreciated food into something that is far healthier than coleslaw – and we think way better. Simple Balsamic Roasted Cabbage for all ya’ll cabbage haters.

Carrots really seem to have the seasonal spotlight all across the blogosphere. We were particularly taken with this recipe from Cheesecake for All for homemade Carrot Jam and a delicious soup meal from Cooking with the Big Dogs for Carrot and Parsnip Soup with Parsnip Chips. 

Feeling better already…
