Slow-Cooker Flounder with Thai Coconut-Curry Sauce

This dish boasts delicate, flaky flounder and a sweet, fragrant curry made with rich coconut milk, tender sweet potatoes and brown rice. The flounder--which can be substituted with tilapia, if desired--cooks well on top of the curry. Adding the flounder to the slow cooker for the last 20 minutes allows it to steam without overcooking. For the prettiest appearance, substitute whole fresh basil leaves for the sliced basil. To save prep time, purchase a package of prepeeled, prechopped sweet potatoes, such as the 16-ounce steam-in-bag package from Archer Farms, and use 14 ounces from it.

Scallion-Ginger Beef & Broccoli

3
Whip up a chef-quality stir-fry recipe at home. This beef and broccoli stir-fry packs in more vegetables and nearly halves the calories of what you would find in a restaurant. And this healthy dinner takes just 30 minutes to prep, so it's about as quick as takeout too. Ginger, which adds a lively kick to this stir-fry, has long been touted for its power to settle stomachs. But that's not its only superpower: preliminary research suggests it may improve blood sugar and inflammation too.
