In addition to taking advantage of the seasonal fruits and vegetables, don’t forget the herbs in your garden! This lighter version potato salad uses plain Greek yogurt, which is a healthy substitution for sour cream in most recipes, and fresh cut dill.
Although grilled shrimp and couscous, a quick cook pasta, make a perfect combination, you wouldn’t think to combine with grapes but the flavors blend very well for a refreshing and healthy seafood meal!
This meatless pasta meal pairs whole wheat pasta with peas, artichoke hearts and lemon for a refreshing change from tomato-based sauces! Add chicken, shrimp or salmon for a satisfying meal ready in about 30 minutes!
Adding fresh fruit to green salads is not a new trend but is one worth continuing. This grilled chicken and spinach salad blends sweet pineapple with spicy habanero peppers! It’s full of fiber and flavor. You can make it as mild or spicy as you like. If the habanero is too spicy, try the more mild jalapeno pepper instead!
This recipe makes perfect use of fresh locally grown corn and squash. It is packed with nutrition and flavor! To save time use canned butter beans or baby lima beans, drain and rinsed before use. Edamame work well in this recipe also!
You won’t even know it’s not a pasta bake! Try this traditional baked Italian dish using cauliflower rice, chicken and sausage. All the flavor without all the carbs and calories. A fresh green salad completes the meal!
A favorite take out dish is chicken fried rice, but the caloric density if rice far exceeds what is recommended for one meal. By making it at home and substituting cauliflower rice, you can dramatically reduce the calories and carbohydrate content!
