10 healthy entrees
These main dishes pack a double-punch of flavor and health
Tomato "Bruschetta" with Tuna and Cannellini Salad
No bread is involved, but this is hearty enough for a quick and healthy weeknight meal--and makes great use of vine-ripened tomatoes.
Salmon Burritos with Chile-Roasted Vegetables
We replaced the usual rice with pan-roasted sweet potatoes, onions, and poblano chiles, giving this burrito a healthy dose of fiber as well as heart-protecting micronutrients such as carotenoids (in the sweet potatoes), flavonoids (onions), folic acid (cabbage), and omega-3 fatty acids (salmon).
Caprese Skillet Eggs
We love this satisfying mix of tomatoes, creamy mozzarella, and baked eggs. Not only does it make a satisfying breakfast or dinner, but it's healthy, too.

Chicken Escabeche with Cilantro Black Beans
This low-cal, tangy dish is based on a recipe in Mexican Everyday by celebrity chef and Mexican cooking authority, Rick Bayless.
Grilled Fish and "Chips"
This dish is a nod to the nostalgia of childhood TV dinners. But the difference here is fresh fish and our special tartar sauce, easily created from ingredients you likely have in the fridge.

Pork Chops with Butternut Squash, Escarole, and Walnuts
Loaded with good-for-you ingredients like escarole, squash, and walnuts, this one-pan dish is as satisfying as it is nutritious.
Grilled Salmon with Cucumber Salad
Maria Hines, chef of Tilth restaurant in Seattle, serves this refreshing, hot-and-cool salmon dish with a side of couscous seasoned with fresh herbs, lemon zest, and grilled cucumber slices.
Shrimp and Chickpea Pasta
Karen Schmitt created this quick one-pan dinner with the colors of an Arizona desert sunset in mind. We love that it's packed with healthy ingredients like tomatoes, low-cal shrimp, and chickpeas.

Broccoli Rabe Skillet Pizza
A mix of broccoli rabe, yellow peppers, mozzarella cheese, and a whole-wheat crust make this one of our favorite options for a healthy pizza night.
Recipe: Broccoli Rabe Skillet Pizza
Mix a bit of balsamic vinegar with a touch of brown sugar and Dijon mustard and you have a super-simple, low-calorie dinner that you'll turn to again and again.
