Bok choy is big when it comes to nutrition—you get more than 100% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin A with just one cup! Also packed with vitamin C and calcium, this stalky, celery look-alike belongs to the cabbage family and sometimes goes by the name Chinese chard. With mild flavor and sturdy texture, it works wonders in soups, salads or stir-fry dishes, including this one, where it’s paired with garlic and ginger for classic Asian flavor.
Oh no! It’s almost 6 p.m., you haven’t even thought about dinner and the hungry crowd on the couch is getting restless. Luckily, all you need is 30 minutes to throw together this simple stir-fry, loaded with veggies and whatever protein (chicken, shrimp or tofu) you have on hand. Serve it with steamed rice or noodles, and you’ve got a nutritious, filling meal your family will love.
It’s not pasta, it’s “squashta”! Try this easy method for creating veggie noodles from baked spaghetti squash (all you need is a fork!). Top with a mixture of sauteed spinach, sundried tomatoes, fresh herbs and pine nuts—plus some cayenne or red pepper flakes to spice things up!
After a full day of work, running errands and shuffling kids around, who has the time to prepare a wholesome, nutritious, non-microwaved meal? You do—that’s who! In less time than it would take for you to dial up and wait for restaurant delivery, or make it through a long fast food line, you can serve your family a fantastic meal they’ll not only love but that’s actually good for them, too.
Seems as if it was just yesterday that we were bundling up to protect ourselves from those winter winds and storms. Now we’re rolling out the red carpet to greet summer’s sunny days. The challenge for cooks: What to make when it’s hot outside. It’s so tempting to head to the fast food drive-through for something easy and quick – but you know better than that! So what to do? We’re glad you asked. Here are our favorite tips for warm weather menus:
For a “non-fishy-tasting” fish, tilapia is a top pick. Mild, light and flaky, it soaks up whatever seasonings it’s cooked with, making a flavorful recipe like this one helpful to have on hand. In a food processor, you’ll combine olive oil with a small onion, fresh cilantro, chili powder and coriander—plus a surprise summer ingredient (hint: it makes great shortcakes!)—to create a simple rub. Once applied, all it takes it three minutes on the grill, and dinner is served!
Here’s a paleo dish that’s deceptively easy to prepare. Guests will think you’ve spent hours slaving away in the kitchen…but really, you only need about 20 minutes, including prep time! This is a nice, light meal, perfect for the hotter temps as summer approaches.
