Just as hearty yet more wholesome than traditional red versions, this white bean chili is loaded with lean turkey, fresh veggies and a heaping helping of cannellinis. A type of white kidney bean, cannellinis have a mild, nutty flavor and cook up tender and creamy—perfect for a warm, stew-like dish that combines the different textures and complementary tastes of vegetables and meat. Spoon in a dollop of Greek yogurt for a touch of cooling contrast to the spicy green chiles.

Whether your diet is paleo, gluten-free or vegan, zucchini pasta is the perfect way to still have fun spinning noodles without the flour, carbs or eggs that come with traditional spaghetti. A spiralizer is a fancy tool that turns out long, thin ribbons from your favorite veggies, which can be served raw or sautéed with coconut oil for tender texture. Don’t have a one? A plain-old vegetable peeler will do. In this recipe, zucchini pasta is topped with a rich, creamy sauce made from avocado, spinach, cucumbers and basil for a gorgeous, entirely green meal.
Nuggets, bites, balls, sticks—food in “finger” form is always more fun to eat! Make a healthier version of a classic dip-able favorite with this simple recipe. Rather than battering and deep frying ordinary white fish, omega-3-rich salmon pieces are lightly breaded and baked for the perfect tender-inside, crunchy-outside finish.
The sea is teeming with nutritious treasures, but pasta isn’t one you’d expect. Kelp noodles—made from a type of edible brown seaweed—are loaded with minerals, low in carbs and easy to eat (just open the package, rinse and serve!). Plus, a heaping helping has just six calories, making these mild-tasting ribbons the perfect addition to salads, soups or stir fry dishes if you’re dieting or looking for a lighter meal. In this raw recipe, they’re tossed with a tangy dressing, fresh veggies and crunchy seeds with a hint of fiery flavor from smoked paprika. If you’re a kelp noodle newbie, it’ll be love at first bite.
Some mornings are so busy, even boiling water will set you back. Rather than grabbing another granola bar for breakfast, enjoy that oatmeal you wish you’d had time to make. With this recipe, just open the fridge, grab and go! Prep is all done the night before—no cooking required. Filling and fiber-rich oats, protein-packed chia seeds and creamy Greek yogurt come together with tropical coconut and pineapple for a quick, nutritious and delicious morning meal.
Forget love…chocolate is in the air this month! Whip up a batch of creamy, dreamy fudge when you crave the taste but don’t want the guilt. Unlike traditional recipes, this vegan version is made without condensed milk or milk chocolate. The perfect blend of ripe banana, coconut oil and raw cacao makes it a healthy treat to share with your sweetheart (or keep it all to yourself — we won’t judge!).
Poppers made with peppers are spicy, deep fried and stuffed with gooey, melted cheese. For a lighter, milder, hot-from-the-oven snack, try these creative veggie bites. Crunchy chunks of cauliflower are tossed with olive oil and herbs, then coated with nutritional yeast for a cheesy taste without the dairy. Baked, not fried, they’re OK to pop in your mouth any time the munchies strike!
