Eggplant Manicotti

Manicotti, which means “muff” in Italian, are idea for filling with cheesy ricotta. Slices of eggplant mimic this pasta-free way to enjoy the same flavors you’ll find in the original recipe. Adding kale to the filling boosts nutrition, lowers calories and fat.

Making kale chips is fast, easy, and cost effective. Any type of kale works, just be sure that your washed kale leaves are dry before adding olive oil for ultimate crisp chips!

Turkey Chili

This turkey chili makes a tasty, high-protein meal, because it’s made with lean ground turkey. Get creative with the topping, a tablespoon of your favorite cheese, salsa, or sour cream. Beans add a good dose of fiber but if you want to ramp up the nutrition even more, add a handful of your favorite green, such as kale or spinach during the last minute of cooking.

Gluten-Free Lasagna

This is no ordinary lasagna, it’s gluten-free and fortified with two of my favorite superfoods, mushrooms and kale. Gluten-free diets can be unhealthy when you don’t include veggies, but this one dish meal has it all.
