Crispy Quinoa Chicken Nuggets

Quinoa is so easy to incorporate into your diet — plus it's a great way to get more fiber. This recipe is a healthier take on a comfort food classic that I absolutely couldn't get enough of when I was growing up. There's no question that you'll kids will love them, too.

Avocado Potato Salad

Substituting avocado for mayonnaise in potato salad is a good way to lighten up the dish and get a heart healthy fat that's also vegan.
