Earth Day is April 22nd. Picnic Day is April 23rd. So, I created this refreshing and super scrumptious twist on potato salad to celebrate both days al fresco. Though, please do enjoy this recipe anytime. I do. In fact, it’s my post-workout snack of the moment! Note: April’s Recipe Redux theme is “Ready for Picnics!”
If you’re a fan of sporting events or bar food, chances are good that you’ve probably enjoyed a stuffed potato skin or two during football season! Now, here’s a way to enjoy them more often–at home and in a healthful yet equally delicious way. They’re a perfect addition to a Meatless Monday night football gathering. And don’t worry if your game day starts super early. These potato skins are stuffed with eggs; so they’re ideal to savor for a sporty brunch (and a tasty way to boost protein early in the day). Think of them as the best of both–a western omelet and hash brown–all in one fun bite! Calories saved: 190 Why it’s better for you? Stuffed with veggies...

Plus, it’s vegan—so you can enjoy all of its rich-tasting, rustic goodness while knowing that you’re being good to your body. Hope you enjoy a bowl of it soon! Calories saved: 890
Makes 6 servings: 1 cup each Potato salad is not traditionally Lebanese cuisine. But I was craving potato salad and Lebanese food—which is how this inspired recipe came to be. It’s a truly refreshing twist on the traditionally overly-caloric summertime favorite. This fragrant version is vegan, too. I adore this recipe. I hope you do, too! Calories Saved: 240
