I am in love with Van’s Multigrain Crispy Whole-Grain Baked Crackers. See, I have a thing for crunchy, salty snacks—potato chips especially—but they usually get me in trouble, as being in their presence depletes me of all willpower and self-control. I mean, it’s bad. I have no shame. I’ve tried subbing in healthier snacks, but they always feel like lame stand-ins; they don’t hit the same pleasure notes as my beloved chips.
Eating healthy should still be delicious.

And that’s why I’m so happy to have discovered these crackers! They are my new go-to salty, crunchy snack, absolutely crave-able. They are light and crisp and shatter easily, similar to a (you got it!) potato chip. But they’re even better, really, because they go beyond just salty and crunchy. They’re nutty, too, with the faintest sweetness on the back end to round out the flavor. And they’re whole grain! Oh, and guess what? They’re gluten-free, too, made with whole-grain oats, brown rice, millet, quinoa, and amaranth. Our Nutrition Editor gives them a hearty thumbs-up for the reasonable calories, saturated fat (none), and sodium in a serving. Perhaps the best part? A serving is 30 crackers! Now that’s realistic… That’s a snack to love.

Wait, roasted cabbage?
Roasting cabbage? Yep, you’ve got to try it! Alex and I knew that if roasted cabbage wedges were anything like Grilled Romaine, we’d be head over heels for it. We made it, and turns out (drumroll…), they were even more delicious than imagined!
Roasting cabbage gives it a new flavor altogether: it’s sweet and tender. Paired with a simple vinaigrette and bits of aged cheese, it’s incredibly satisfying. You might expect that roasted cabbage would be bitter. Once we realized cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable just like Brussels sprouts and cauliflower, it made sense! Roasting both of these vegetables gives them a unique sweet flavor that’s not bitter at all. For how to roast those related vegetables, head to:
3 Quick, Healthy Breakfast Recipes You’ve Gotta Try
Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. Eating a nutritious breakfast can increase your energy, improve your concentration, and help you manage your weight. With that said, though, it’s easy to want to skip breakfast when you eat cereal and toast daily. Here are three healthy (and delicious!) breakfast recipes that you can quickly whip up before work:
Breakfast Smoothie: Smoothies are a great breakfast option, especially if you want to add more fruit to your diet. You can even prepare smoothies ahead of time, which makes them an easy grab-and-go breakfast for those mornings when you hit “snooze” too many times. My favorite smoothie recipe is a vegan cinnamon coffee smoothie. It’s filling and delicious, and it’ll become your go-to smoothie too!
1. Cinnamon Coffee Smoothie
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
- 2-4 tablespoons cold brew coffee
- 4 ice cubes
- ¾ cup almond milk
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon protein powder or sweetener (optional)
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Add additional almond milk to taste. Drink immediately or refrigerate to enjoy later!
Muffins: Muffins are delicious, but they can rack up calories. This delicious berry quinoa muffin recipe is perfect to prepare ahead of time so your weekday breakfast is quick and easy.
2. Berry Quinoa Muffins
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (use additional flour to dust pan)
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup white quinoa (raw)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly coat a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray, then dust with flour.
- In a large bowl, whisk together all-purpose and almond flours, quinoa, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, and salt.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, yogurt, milk, and honey. Fold egg mixture into flour mixture until combined, then stir in raspberries.
- Divide batter among muffin pan cups. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. To know when muffins are done baking, insert toothpick into center of muffins and wait until it comes out clean.
- Cool muffins in pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to allow muffins to cool completely.
Egg wraps: Egg wraps are perfect if you want a low-carb, high-protein breakfast, and they don’t take long to make. You can even make several wraps ahead of time and add your favorite ingredients to switch up the recipe.
3. Egg Wraps
- Fillings: avocado, fruit, turkey sausage, or bacon
- Salt, pepper, and oregano to taste
- Heat a small skillet on medium heat and grease with oil
- Crack eggs in medium bowl and mix until combined
- Pour into hot skillet and tilt pan to spread egg
- Sprinkle in seasoning
- Let eggs cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute
- Flip eggs and cook 30 seconds to 1 minute
- Let egg wrap cool. Add desired fillings. Roll and serve warm or refrigerate a larger quantity for the rest of the week.

MAI ALFREDO BISCUITS

2. Next, mix 2 cups of cooked, seasoned and cut chicken and 2 cups Alfredo sauce.
3. Separate the biscuits from 1 can of refrigerated dough and roll each about the size of your hand. Then press the dough into the muffin tin.
4. Add 1/4 a cup of your saucy chicken mixture and use the edges of the dough to cover up the top.

430 W. Washington Ave., Zeeland
Established in 2013, The Farmhouse offers traditional favorites and new and bold entrees.
Server Heidi Mesbergen recommends the fresh blueberry pie.
Baker Jan Becksvoort prepares four or five different pies a day. Dutch apple and coconut crème are joined by specialty pies like fresh blueberry, pumpkin and banana crème. She also likes to mix flavors in her pies, such as cranberry-apple, blueberry-peach and strawberry-rhubarb.
210 River Ave., Holland
Founder J. Russel Bouws launched his first restaurant in Holland in 1934. The 12 Russ’ Restaurants in western Michigan include three in Holland and one in Grand Haven.
Server Kristi Jones of Holland Northtown recommends the pumpkin pie. Russ’ pumpkin pie is a seasonal pie, available from September through the end of the year. Russ’ offers some 15 pies, but the list of available pies changes monthly.
A super simple vegan cereal bar recipe!
Thankfully, they are also easy to put together. If you’ve ever made any kind of cereal bar before, you can make these.
Combine the oats, flour, maple syrup, coconut oil, almond butter and spices together to make a dough. It should come together fairly easily, but you might need to add a little more almond butter/flour depending on what kind of oats you use and how runny your almond butter is. You’ll know it’s right when you can pinch off a piece with your hands.
Place half of that in a 8″ baking dish and press to form a thick layer. Pop that in the fridge to harden while you make the chocolate.
Oh yeah, the chocolate. See that ribbon of dark chocolate? That’s what takes these bars to a whole ‘nother layer of deliciousness. I used dark chocolate chips, but you could also use a combination of dark and milk chocolate if you prefer. Need to keep these vegan? Then be sure to select dairy-free chocolate chips. We love Enjoy Life dairy-free chips!
Melt the chocolate, spread on top and pop back into the fridge to harden. Don’t worry, it doesn’t take too long. You just need the chocolate firm enough to spread more of the almond-oat dough on top.
Top with the oat mixture, then place back in the fridge one last time to firm up. This is usually about the time when BL comes into the kitchen asking if they are done.
Patience grasshopper, patience.
Slice ’em and eat! Because these have coconut oil in them, you’ll want to store them in the fridge. If by some miracle you don’t eat all of them in a few days, wrap the bars in plastic wrap and store in the freezer for 2-3 minutes. Thaw before eating.
