Main Dish

Lemony Chickpeas with Baked Eggs & Arugula

Canned chickpeas get tossed with olive oil and baked until crispy. Add in a few eggs during the last few minutes of roasting and they get cooked to perfection. Top it all off with fresh arugula; the heat of the eggs and chickpeas gently wilts the greens.

Zesty Summer Gazpacho

This no-cook soup is meant to be served cool so it’s satisfying and refreshing. Blending tomatoes with immune-supporting garlic creates the base, while a colorful bell pepper and juicy cucumber help you meet your daily quota for veggies! Try adding crumbled turkey bacon or black beans for added protein. If you have fresh bread on hand, that makes for a perfect accompaniment.

Cheesy Turkey Melt

This delicious cheesy recipe makes good use of the leftovers from turkey meatloaf. Whole-wheat bread and colorful sweet bell peppers bring some balance to the ooey-gooey melted cheddar.

Quinoa with Tomatoes and Baby Kale

This warm grain salad features quick-cooking, high-protein quinoa, helping you get a nutritious dinner on the table in a hurry. Combine it with tender baby kale and fresh tomatoes for a pop of color. Can’t find kale in your grocery store? Baby spinach works too.

Mini Turkey Meatloaves

Meatloaf is a comfort food classic! Enjoy one of your childhood favorites with less saturated fat and calories. Reheat the leftovers, or repurpose them in cheesy turkey melts.

Roasted Pork Tenderloin Dinner

Ultra-lean pork tenderloin is an approachable option for entertaining. It’s also great if you just want to treat yourself to a tasty, well-rounded dinner! Enjoy all four portions with family, or use leftover meat and potatoes to make a hearty salad.

Chicken-Almond Salad Sandwich

Featuring lean cooked chicken, slivered almonds, juicy grapes, and whole-grain bread, this version of chicken salad is unlike any deli creation you’ve ever had! Swapping in light Greek yogurt for the typical mayo keeps it creamy and delicious while adding protein and cutting fat and cholesterol.

Smoked Salmon and Dill Wheat Berry Bowl

Like fresh salmon, smoked salmon is a good source of protein, B vitamins, and vitamin D. It is, however, high in sodium, so if you are watching your salt intake, flake some poached or canned salmon over your bowl instead of the smoked slices.
