A creamy casserole made without heavy cream—now that’s something to be thankful for! Seasonal squash and baby spinach star in this healthy, hearty side dish that’s perfect for holiday dinners or any night of the week. Short on time? Pick up a package of pre-cubed butternut squash to skip a step. And if there’s no nutritional yeast on hand, a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese can be subbed in.

Sick of strawberry? Bored by banana? Try a fruit with flair, not to mention notable nutritional benefits, with this naturally sweet, energizing smoothie. A symbol of love in India, and the inspiration behind that squiggly print we call paisley, mangos are packed with vitamins C, B6 and A, with just a single cup knocking out 12 percent of your daily fiber needs. Blend one up with raw honey and a dash of cocoa powder for a unique and satisfying start to your day.
Egg salad isn’t exactly elegant…but it can be. Stir in some baby spinach, diced avocado for extra creaminess and fresh, ripe raspberries for a touch of sweetness. Eaten as-is, atop crackers or spread on bread, this light, healthy dish is perfect for picnics, parties or lunch with a friend.
Just because greasy bread, gooey cheese and heavy mayo are no longer your thing doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a classic tuna melt! Ditch the diner version for this healthier alternative, made with sustainably caught, low-mercury tuna, Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise and vegan cheese, all piled atop whole grain bread and broiled ‘til golden brown and bubbly.
Some of us love hummus so much, using it as a dip just isn’t enough. Spread a thick layer on whole grain bread and top with lettuce for a quick and filling hummus fix! This veggie sandwich can be made in seconds — just use storebought all-natural hummus (hint: you can get it for less at Vitacost!). Bump up the nutrition with added sprouts, tomato slices or fresh toppings of your choice.
A mouthwatering sandwich first sold at Maine roadside stands in the 1970s, traditional lobster rolls are made with butter-soaked lobster meat stuffed into fluffy, white hot dog buns. Make a healthier version of this classic (and still popular!) lunch dish by tossing lobster meat with Greek yogurt instead of butter, seasoning with fresh herbs and serving atop a whole grain roll.
Light and fluffy, minus the mayonnaise in traditional egg salad, this spread makes a scrumptious sandwich filler or protein-packed cracker topping. The creamy texture comes from nutritious Greek yogurt, and avocado adds healthy fat to the mix. Stir in some spinach for even greater nutrition–it supplies hard-to-obtain vitamin K!
