Green Machine Smoothie

Detox Cred: Starting the day with this nutrient-dense elixir is a delicious way to charge your system with nutrients. Dark leafy greens are extremely alkalizing, meaning they foster a more neutral body environment for better functioning enzymes, compared with acid-forming foods like meats and dairy.

Radicchio Salad with Chopped-Lemon Dressing

Finely chopped lemon mixed with grainy mustard, sugar, and olive oil makes a stellar dressing for this radicchio-and-mint salad.

Tofu-Celery Stir-Fry

It's too often relegated to the crudité platter, let celery shine as the star vegetable in this easy plant-based stir-fry. Tofu provides the protein, while ginger, scallions, chili-garlic sauce, and cilantro kick up the flavor.
