This January, as part of Well+Good’s (Re)New Year, famed plant-based and classically trained chef Candice Kumai is providing five weeks of healthy recipes to help not only transform your eating habits, but set you up for year-long success. Last week, she curated recipes specifically meant to clean your gut. This week, it’s all about power and energy—AKA meals that are as packed with protein as they are flavor. 

Want to know the secret to a power meal? It’s making sure every single ingredient serves a good-for-you purpose and tastes yummy. Meeting both requirements may sound difficult, but the trick is getting back to the basics: using whole foods and in-season produce.

Candice Kumai grew up on power food. Protein-rich soba noodles would show up in her bowl throughout the week in soups or mixed with tofu and a spicy peanut sauce. Ancient grains like farro and quinoa were paired with go-to greens like kale and spinach. Of course, she’s picked up lots of tips on the way, too, like adding superfood ingredients like spirulina and bee pollen for an extra boost. There’s a reason the golden girl of wellness has had the energy to release four best-selling books—she’s powered up!
