This is a simple meal packed with flavor and nutrients. The lean protein from the chicken will ensure you will stay full for hours. Using cauliflower instead of bulgur wheat in the tabbouleh lightens up this dish and is such an easy way to get even more vegetables onto your plate. 

This is an Ellie Krieger recipe that we have loved for many years now, and we think you will too! Thanks to the cajun seasoning and fresh herbs, the flavors in this simple meal are out of this world.

Shrimp is an excellent source of lean protein with the added benefit of omega-3 fatty acids and the antioxidant, selenium. The addition of summer vegetables like zucchini and bell peppers add additional antioxidants and fiber. The corn provides a whole grain component to this dish, helping to balance out the meal!

This is a classic flavor combination that never gets old!

Beets are an incredibly nutritious root vegetable. They contain nutrients including folate, manganese, potassium, and magnesium. They also contain nitrates, which may help lower blood pressure and promote heart health. We recommend buying pre-roasted beets to cut back on prep time. Trader Joe's make an excellent pack of pre-roasted beets.

Farro is a whole grain that adds a nutty flavor and fiber to this recipe. Whole grains can help slow digestion, helping to keep you full longer and potentially contributing to weight loss.

This recipe is from my friend Cleo's sister, Christie. I have it written on this tiny scrap of paper that I must have written at her house years ago! Cleo had a gift for entertaining and whenever you were invited for dinner you always knew the food would be fantastic.

The vinegar in this marinade tenderizes the chicken to make a moist and juicy product packed with flavor. This recipe proves that you can put together a super delicious marinade with ingredients that you always have on hand.

This recipe was inspired by a classic Southern Living recipe, but we lightened it up by using less oil and cheese. We promise the flavor is still amazing thanks to the combination of a few of our favorite summer fruits and veggies - peaches and tomatoes. It comes together so easily and makes such a refreshing summer side.

Peaches are naturally low in calories and contain a variety of vitamins and minerals. Try grilling halved peaches for a delicious and healthy summer dessert! Corn is a whole grain that can be incorporated into a healthy Mediterranean lifestyle.

Strawberries and tomatoes are an unexpected yet super flavorful combination in this refreshing summer salad adapted from Cooking Light! Not only do strawberries and tomatoes add a pop of flavor but they also add a lot of inflammation-fighting antioxidants to this meal.

We recommend purchasing produce in season for peak ripeness and optimal taste. Seasonal produce is also higher in certain nutrients because it is picked and consumed at the peak of freshness when nutrient content is at its highest.

This salad is excellent paired with grilled chicken or salmon.
