  • Black Bean and Turkey Chili
    Turkey packs in the protein with a mere .5 gram of fat per serving! So go ahead and sprinkle on some cheese. In the mood for a burrito? Wrap up 1 cup of the chili in a whole grain tortilla..
  • Shepherd’s Pie with Cornbread
    Adding superfoods like spinach and flax double the vitamin content and add important nutrients like omega 3s that you won’t get from the traditional Sheppard’s Pie recipes.
  • Southwestern Burger
    Besides great flavor, the salsa adds tang and plenty of vitamin C, vitamin E, and antioxidants; all of which are important for maintaining beautiful skin! I like to be lean and use turkey instead of beef, that cuts up to 40 grams of fat compared to traditional burger recipes.
  • Chickpea Burger
    To make our tasty Southwestern burger vegetarian, substitute chopped chickpeas and following the recipe below. Chickpeas add plenty of fiber and make this burger heart healthy!
  • Spaghetti and Meatballs
    Enjoy this Italian classic enriched with lycopene from two sources, tomato and pink grapefruit. The grapefruit juice adds tang to the tomato sauce, but no one will ever guess that you added citrus to your recipe.
  • Turkey Bacon Club Sandwich
    This low-fat treat is ideal for your next brunch or movie night. Tucking in spinach adds a super food boost to this classic and provides vitamin C, folate, and Vitamin K that iceberg lettuce can’t deliver.
