Turkey Meatballs with Arugula Pesto
Sometimes the best part of a meal is the way it makes you feel. A pack of ground turkey, some gluten-free spaghetti, fresh basil, and parmesan combine to make flavorful fare that is light but surprisingly satisfying.
Tuna Melts with Carrot Fries
One-up your favorite café combo: substitute Greek yogurt for mayo and pass on the potatoes for a more colorful kind of fry made with (surprise) carrots! It’s a nutritious take on the classic tuna melt that doesn’t take itself too seriously (though it is seriously tasty).
Sausage-Stuffed Zucchini Boats
Zucchini is the perfect vessel for transporting savory Italian chicken sausage and zesty marinara sauce to a new level of goodness. It’s a particularly helpful option for the carb-avoidant, as it replaces the bread base of the traditional pizza boat.
Mushroom Beef Burger with Broccoli Slaw
This “blended” burger, made with patties of white mushroom and beef, is a half-meat hybrid worthy of bragging rights. With a honey- and cider vinegar-flavored broccoli slaw topping, it’s an 85% lean beef creation that brings the fun of grilling indoors and harkens to the patio fare of summertime.
Cauliflower Rice and Beans with Shrimp
It’s hard to underestimate what a veggie, disguised as another food, can do to transform the mundane meal. In this case, cauliflower takes the form of rice, with the Mexican-style pico de gallo salsa for flair and texture. Shrimp covered in the zest of lime is an invigorating way to have your protein – another “new-tritious” take on a favorite food.
