One-Pot New Year's Day Feast for Two - Vegan and Gluten-Free

Create your own good fortune for the New Year's by cooking collards, a sweet potato, and black-eyed peas all in one pot. Black-eyed peas surround a halved sweet potato at the bottom of a pot. After awhile, collards join in, kept above the bubbling in a steamer. See the recipe and tips below for this lucky vegan, gluten-free, and low-fat feast. Because it takes only 30 minutes of active time, it's perfect for a week-night dinner too.

One-Pot New Year's Day Feast for Two - Vegan and Gluten-Free - with black-eyed peas, collards, and a sweet potato

Why lucky? Here in the South, we know that eating lots of greens on New Year's Day will bring us more folding money and eating black-eyed peas will mean more ...

Resolution Revelation Apple-Raisin Roll

I love starting the new year with resolutions. This recipe shares the revelation that repeatedly unveiled itself to me last year: even the healthiest of food can be utterly delectable. Try it yourself by focusing on what is in this just-sweet-enough spiral of fruity baked goodness: apples, cinnamon, hot baked bread. Get your own revelation as you think about what is not in it. This breakfast bread or dessert has:

  • No added fat
  • No added sugar
  • No refined flour
  • No diary


organic Resolution Revelation Apple-Raisin Roll is tender and delicious but just 35 cents a serving, sugar-free, dairy-free, no added fat, whole-grain.

You can probably eat as much as you want and still keep your New Year's Resolutions. Not only is it super-healthy, but:

  • It's easier to make than pie
  • It will make your kitchen smell fabulous
  • It costs just 35 cents a serving

Here's just a few of the resolutions it can help you keep: lose weight, get healthy, save money, eat with the seasons, and make the world a more delicious and happier place.

Steamed Collards with Lime-Peanut Sauce

I was looking for the healthiest, most affordable way to cook collards. I found that, plus my new favorite in the taste department! These are so good that I had the extra for breakfast today. Even people who eat collards solely for the mighty greens' nutritional mojo find that the lime juice masks the bitterness and the peanut butter adds a silky richness. One serving of Steamed Collards with Lime-Peanut Sauce contains seven grams of protein, no cholesterol, and plenty of vitamins, calcium, iron, and fiber.

Serve your friends and family Steamed Collards with Lime-Peanut Sauce on New Year's Day. Tradition holds that the more greens you eat on January 1st, the more folding money you'll get in the coming year. You'll appreciate the quick cooking time, everyone will enjoy the taste, and no one will miss the sulfurous smell of overcooked collards.
