Staying Strong During Lent

Making sacrifices and giving up indulgences are a big part of Lent. Most commonly, people give up chocolate, desserts, candy, carbs, meat, or other guilty pleasures, and around this time, it starts to get rough. Seeing co-workers munch on candy bars or receive sunflowers made out of chocolate (OK, maybe that only happens in our office) makes sticking to the promise a little more tricky.

To help those of you still on the bandwagon continue to succeed for the latter half of Lent, we've put together a healthy and delicious menu to keep you on track.

Enjoy and please let us know how it's going!


Cucumber and Dill Salad

A refreshing and light spring salad, this recipe is packed full of flavor and is low in calories and fat. 






Miso-Glazed Broiled Salmon

Heart-healthy salmon is glazed with flavorful miso. Serve this recipe over steamed greens like bok choy. 






Asparagus Tangle with Parmesan Vinaigrette

Using a vegetable peeler to shave strips of raw asparagus gives way to a crunchy side dish that's topped with a nutty, cheesy dressing. 






Coconut Frozen Yogurt with Cinnamon

Made with Greek yogurt and flavored with Stevia and cinnamon, this is a healthier "dessert" that provides a sweet option without being considered a conventional dessert (think chocolate cake or pie).
