Looking for nutritious, simple meals to have? Here are some examples from Jason Wright:
Tomato, garlic and almonds: Combine these with chicken and whole wheat couscous for a full dinner, or substitute almond crumbs for bread crumbs on chicken.
Tempeh: Like tofu, it takes on the flavors with which it is cooked or marinated, including zesty-tangy balsamic vinegar – perfect for accentuating salads.
Greek Yogurt: Rather than adding butter and sour cream to starchy potatoes, pair two healthy options: mashed cauliflower and Greek yogurt with fresh black pepper.
Sushi: Wild salmon, minced cucumbers, shredded carrots, kelp, sesame seeds, rice – healthy ingredients abound in sushi rolls, which are much more filling and satisfying than a non-sushi eater might think.
Fruit Salad: Bring together chopped apples, strawberries, cantaloupe, watermelon and pineapple with blueberries and grapes for a sweet and juicy post-dinner palate-cleanser. Remember, lemon juice prevents fruits from browning.
