what to eat

This past Saturday, I was perusing the selection of fresh veggies at the farmers’ market, when I came across a basket of ball-shaped zucchini, aptly named Eight Ball zucchini. And let me tell you, these round zucchini were just begging to be stuffed with a delicious quinoa concoction.

And that’s when I came to the realization: Stuffed vegetables are so freakin’ versatile. And yummy. So for this week’s menu, we’ve found five healthy, delicious and creative stuffed vegetable dishes for you to chow down. Happy cooking!

After a weekend like the one we just had—a long weekend filled with burgers, buns, and let’s be honest, probably some beer—eating yet another big meal can feel more like a burden than something to look forward to. Which is why, for this week’s recipes, we’ve rounded up five light meals that are loaded with vitamin-packed, detoxifying goodies like beets, kale, avocado and asparagus. Not only do these foods taste delicious, they also each pack a body-cleansing punch: Beets help to clean out the liver, kale is high in antioxidants, avocado boasts tons of heart-healthy fats and fiber and asparagus cleanses the kidneys and works as a natural anti-inflammatory. Meaning, not only will these meals taste good, they’ll make you feel good, too. Happy cooking!
