Mint chocolate chip granola 

"While cocoa has something of a bad wrap in the world of baking (it is the lazy man's chocolate, no?), here it provides just the right amount of a rich, sweet coating, while still allowing one to taste the oats, the chopped almonds, the shredded coconut, and all the other granola-esque elements that make up the base of this recipe. " - The Chef's Wife

Lentil Tacos

Tacos are a crowd favorite because of the endless possibilities of fresh veggies and toppings that can be added - olives, tomatoes, avocado, greens, caramelized onions and peppers, etc. Tacos make it super easy to eat the rainbow in one sitting.

Greek Salad Bowls with Spiced Lamb Burgers

You can add a grain to the bowl if you like (brown rice or quinoa would be yummy). For a paleo version, omit the feta and yogurt-based dressing and use your favorite paleo salad dressing (or oil/vinegar combo) instead.
