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.
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.
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.
It’s all about chia! Little seeds with lots of power, these tiny treasures can be sprinkled on just about anything for an instant fiber, protein and omega-3 boost. You already love pudding, so why not make some that’s not just creamy, cool and sweet—but packed with bonus nutrition? The secret? Besides a heaping spoonful of chia seeds, you’ll sneak in some spinach, a potassium-packed banana and irresistible coconut cream.
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!
Is there a picky eater in your family? A vegetarian? A vegan? Everyone can be happy at dinner on taco night! Start off by sautéing some veggies—use fresh favorites or take this opportunity to “clean out” your refrigerator’s produce drawer. From here, you can go meatless or brown up some beef or buffalo meat—your choice. Serve with seasoned brown rice and toppings your troop loves! I like to lay out whole wheat tortillas, local raw goat cheese, avocado, shredded cabbage and chopped tomato.
Stuck in a smoothie slump? Try this recipe for a sweet drink that really packs in the greens. Spinach is already a popular ingredient, but spirulina and maca may be new superfood additions to your kitchen. Just a pinch of these easy-to-use powders provides a potent dose of plant nutrition. Add fresh strawberries, cinnamon and stevia to sweeten things up!
