You’ve heard of, and probably tried, dozens of ways to use apple cider vinegar. Here’s another to add to your list! Mix a few tablespoons of ACV with some spiced cider to give ordinary baked chicken a refreshingly tangy and healthy twist. This recipe takes just five minutes to prep and 30 minutes to cook, putting a tasty, nutritious dinner on the table in no time.

If it’s true that “it’s what’s inside that counts,” these stuffed chicken breasts are done just right! Hearty, quartered artichoke hearts and tender baby spinach are blended with low-fat cottage cheese for a flavorful and good-for-you filling. Bake until golden brown and enjoy a protein- and nutrient-rich dish that beats ordinary, boring chicken dinners any night of the week.
The next time you’re in the mood for a veggie burger, think outside the box (the kind you pick up in the frozen food aisle at the supermarket, that is). These fresh, homemade patties feature some of the best flavors of the fall season—yellow squash, pumpkin seeds and almonds—and can be made in minutes by simply blending ingredients, shaping into patties and pan-frying in flavorful coconut oil until golden brown. Company coming for dinner? Try baking the mixture in mini-loaf pans for an elegant main dish!
Shrimp scampi is a protein-packed, flavorful dish that’s been one of my favorites for as long as I can remember. To make a paleo-friendly version, simply swap out butter for olive oil and replace the commonly used angel hair pasta with equally satisfying, homemade spaghetti squash noodles. Cooking shrimp with the “shell on” renders a more succulent finished dish–a little messier, but worth every bite!
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.
Hollow out a pepper and you’ve got the perfect package to plump with tasty fillings. Rather than the traditional rice-and-meat combo, scoop in a vegetarian medley of diced zucchini, black beans, pumpkin seeds and spicy dairy-free cheese. Top with cool, creamy avocado slices and fresh pico de gallo to give these stuffed sensations a Mexican twist.
Go for goat cheese if you want a lighter, healthier alternative to feta or ricotta in a pasta dish. In this meatless, gluten-free Goat Cheese and Garlic Penne, its sweet-tangy creaminess complements the rich flavor of fresh garlic and basil, while a sprinkling of pine nuts adds subtle crunch.
