I don’t love New Year’s resolutions, especially those that involve the words “diet,” “detox,” or “cleanse.” But if the start of 2014 has you thinking about incorporating more meatless meals into your repertoire, then so much the better. This is a wonderful time of year to explore a plant-based diet, and see where small changes take you. 

In my experience, it’s easiest and most enjoyable to explore veganism one recipe at a time. Fortunately, there’s a vegan recipe for everyone. Whether you love soups and stews, hearty casseroles, crispy kale salads, or a crunchy platter of seared tempeh, you won’t be disappointed in this round up of hearty -- but healthy -- favorites from The New Veganism.

I like the green smoothie with avocado. Green smoothie is filled with green leafy veggies and the addition of avocado adds a delicious creamy twist. I also discovered another way on Boris Wolfman’s blog to make it with additional taste of celery, broccoli, and parsley. However, I think avocado is giving a unique touch and new taste to it.
