This recipe is good for any time you need to exorcise the bad food/post holiday demons from your body. It’s a chopped salad (kind of) with kale, carrots, a little garlic, cooked quinoa, and sunflower seeds. It’s finished off with blood orange slices, zest, and vinaigrette.

Enjoy it with a side of eggs for breakfast, by itself for lunch, or as a side to lean meat or with a handful of roasted chickpeas and a slice of hearty bread for dinner.

This apple, cheddar, and maple granola stuffing is not only perfect for pork chops, but I’m certain it would be excellent in chicken and turkey, too. There’s tartness from the granny smith apple, sharpness and creaminess from the cheddar, and the perfect sweet balance from the granola and crunch from the nuts within. I highly recommend using a whole-grain, limited ingredient granola.
