Featured Recipes

Broccoli, Mushroom & Beef Stir-Fry

This healthy beef and broccoli stir-fry recipe has a Korean-inspired gochujang sauce. Because stir-fries cook up quickly, have all the ingredients prepped and next to the stove before you turn on the heat. Serve over brown rice or rice noodles.

Falafel Salad with Lemon-Tahini Dressing

Deep-fried falafel can be a total grease bomb. But these pan-seared falafel still get crispy in just a few tablespoons of oil with equally satisfying results. Be sure to use dried, instead of canned, chickpeas in this healthy recipe—canned chickpeas add too much moisture.

Spicy Cauliflower & Pancetta Spaghetti

Don’t ditch your pasta-cooking water! The flavorful liquid retains a touch of the pasta’s starch, which helps your sauce cling to the spaghetti in this healthy pasta recipe.

Seared Chicken with Mango Salsa & Spaghetti Squash

A quick mango salsa gives this easy chicken dinner recipe a tropical flavor boost. A generous serving of spaghetti squash rounds out the healthy meal.

Barbecued Pork Chops with Roasted Potatoes & Kale

Cooking the potatoes and kale in a foil packet in this healthy recipe gives you moist and tender results while using less oil. Choose a barbecue sauce that has the least amount of sodium and added sugars.

Escarole & White Bean Salad with Swordfish

In this healthy fish recipe, meaty swordfish gets a dusting of herbs before being pan-seared. Then it’s served on top of a healthy escarole and white bean salad with a lemon-Dijon vinaigrette.
