Asian Cabbage Slaw

Asian Cabbage Slaw | Healthy Whole Foods | Scoop.it
Have you ever had one of those cabbage salads with the Asian flavors and either uncooked ramen noodles or some other fried crunchy bits? I have. These salads are pretty popular around these parts, and for very good reason. They're easy to assemble and they taste amazing. I set out to make a version that, well, is healthier.

If You’re Not Eating Kale Regularly, This Might Change Your Mind

If You’re Not Eating Kale Regularly, This Might Change Your Mind | Healthy Whole Foods | Scoop.it
I’ve been hearing about the amazing benefits of kale ever since I started on this journey of eating a more plant-based diet, yet somehow it didn’t quite click for me (and I never ate it) – until now. There's a reason kale is often called "the queen of greens."...

Leafy Greens for Lovely Skin

Leafy Greens for Lovely Skin | Healthy Whole Foods | Scoop.it
Dark, leafy greens are a particular nutritional standout. Eating a spinach salad and other dark leafy greens delivers a bonanza of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. Calorie for calorie, dark, leafy greens are one the most concentrated sources of nutrition. They are rich in minerals (iron, calcium, potassium and magnesium) and vitamins (K, C, E and some B vitamins), and they provide a variety of phytonutrients including beta-carotene and lutein.

Pineapple + Cashew Quinoa Curry Bowl

Pineapple + Cashew Quinoa Curry Bowl | Healthy Whole Foods | Scoop.it
Looking for something to spice up your week? This curry bowl is your answer! *hehe* A delicious bowlful of fresh veggies and healthy quinoa infused with mildly spicy curry topped with crunchy cashews and fresh pineapple. Mmm! This is seriously one of the yummiest dishes I have tried in a long time. And even though the ingredient list may seem lengthly, it is a really easy meal to throw together. The quinoa can be cooked days in advance and you can use canned pineapple if you don't have time to slice up a fresh one (...they ARE a bit intimidating!).

What Should We Eat?

What Should We Eat? | Healthy Whole Foods | Scoop.it
"Households should select predominantly plant-based diets rich in a variety of vegetables and fruits, pulses or legumes, and minimally processed starchy staple foods."
 
Sounds like the advice from some natural health, alternative health guru or organization, doesn't it?  Maybe even sounds like some extremely radical and controversial recommendation from a vegetarian, vegan or alternative health group?
 
Would it surprise you to find out that this recommendation comes from the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations?

Roasted Green Beans & Mushrooms with Walnuts

Roasted Green Beans & Mushrooms with Walnuts | Healthy Whole Foods | Scoop.it
This recipe really couldn’t be much easier–the most time-consuming part is trimming the green beans. (And trust me, if you’ve never had roasted green beans before, the 5 minutes of trimming and cutting is well-worth the effort.) Once you’ve cut the beans and mushrooms, you throw them onto a baking sheet with the walnuts, spray them with cooking spray, and 15 minutes later, you have a fresh, delicious (not to mention healthy!) side dish that your whole family will love.

Wrinkle-Fighting Cauliflower Gold Recipe

Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable containing both soluble and insoluble forms of fiber. It’s also an excellent source of alpha-linolenic acid and vitamins C and K. Higher intakes of vitamin C and linoleic acid, combined with lower intakes of fats and carbohydrates, are linked to a lower likelihood of wrinkles and dry skin, according to a 2007 study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
