Over the weekend I found myself at a Japanese grocery store food court, standing in line at a noodle stall that makes fresh udon before your eyes. Even though it’s the dead of winter here in Chicago, I opted for a bowl of cold udon noodles, nestled in a cool soy base with a runny poached egg atop. Right as I paid, I saw a tub of tempura crunchies sitting by the cashier. I scooped a spoon, then two, then three, essentially burying my noodles with those lacy fried bits. What a delicious decision that was. When you’re eating something where everything’s slick, cool, and chewy, having that crunchy contrast was delightful.

Ask a MD or registered dietitian for tips on everything from boosting your metabolism and healthy weight loss to keeping your digestive system running smoothly and lowering inflammation, and chances are they’ll immediately say the F word: fiber. Basically, fiber is everything. You probably already know that leafy greens and plant-based proteins like lentils are good sources of the nutrient, but there’s another, totally underrated way to get your fiber fill: plantains.

My dad was a large, brawny wrestling coach, known to his students and friends alike as “Big I” (the moniker is even on his gravestone). He started cooking rather late in life (I was already in grade school), but once he started, having people over to marvel at his culinary creations—like deep-dish pizza made in a cast-iron skillet, with real Caesar salad, down to the raw egg in the dressing, on the side—became his favorite form of social activity. Going out to eat in a restaurant was not something my family ever did—cooking all day for an afternoon feast that slid into dinner definitely was.

You guys. YOU GUYS. This loaded hummus looks like the dreamiest, most perfect thing to make for summer parties.

While we all have our favorite store-bought hummus brands (mine is Hope), nothing beats the homemade stuff — especially if you blend it up it in your kitchen, compliments of a food processor. This recipe from Taste Love and Nourish is not only the best hummus base, but also the perfect combination of salty, herby, and briny toppings that will have everyone asking for more pita to dip. Once you're done assembling, this appetizer will look like something you ordered in a restaurant.

Dinner on Whole30 really can be quite similar to dinner when you're not following the program. How, you ask? We've got a few ideas.

Why not put protein at the center of the table? Round it out with some veggies and you've got a meal that's geared to feed all the mouths at the table. Sheet pan suppers and skillet meals are always easy to pull together. And, if all else fails, almost everyone can agree on a bowl of chicken soup.
