T minus 10 days until Victoria Day! We’re gearing up for next weekend which will be complete with family, friends, fun and of course, FOOD. How will your clients be celebrating? How can you help them celebrate in style?

As for us, we’ll be hosting a clean potluck using our favorite recipes from That Clean Life and will be sharing all the details in the days to come (stay tuned!).

Here are some of our top-rated healthy recipes made to feed a crowd.

1. Mushroom Lentil Burgers

There’s a good chance your clients’ May long weekend will involve a barbecue. These Mushroom Lentil Burgers take 30 minutes to make, are freezer-friendly (which means they can be prepared ahead of time) and are vegan/vegetarian-friendly. Oh, they also taste incredible.

2. Mac and ‘Cheese’

If there’s one recipe your clients will love you for, it’s this one. This gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan version of one of your favourite comfort foods has passed both the "kid test" and "skeptic spouse test".

The ‘cheese’ sauce freezes well so your clients can prepare it ahead of time. Combine the macaroni and ‘cheese’ just before reheating and serving. Your clients can also double it to dip veggies in or slather onto a platter of nachos.

7. Fish Tacos with Fresh Pineapple Salsa

This fresh and summery number would be sublime for anyone having a small get-together. Suggest to your clients that they lay out the fish, pineapple salsa, guacamole, spinach and brown rice tortillas for guests to make their own tacos. They can prepare all the toppings ahead of time and bake or barbecue the fish just before eating, which is literally less than 10 minutes.
