Kefir, a drinkable fermented dairy product, is rich in probiotics — even more so than its better-known cousin, yogurt. Plus, its tangy, tart flavor makes it a fantastic counterpoint in recipes like this herby dressing. Shallots and chives lend flavor while acting as prebiotics, or “food” for the healthy bacteria in your gut.
Chickpeas and an array of colorful veggies combine for a complete meal.
Crispy baked plantain chips and creamy cilantro sauce top this easy layered bowl for a variety of textures and a tropical salty-spicy, savory-sweet flavor combination.

Cacio e pepe means “cheese and pepper” in Italian dialects, and we can’t think of a tastier way to serve up a side dish of spiralized butternut squash.
