Rather than topping a salad with bagged croutons, whip up this Tuscan version with toasted pita bread. There are the usual good-alone-but-better-together suspects expected in something called “Mediterranean”: tomatoes, cucumbers, feta, and olives, which are key since the fats in them help your body absorb the nutrients in the veggies.
2.Crunchy Asian Ramen Noodle Salad
Colorful and crunchy, this salad is just what the doctor ordered when leafy-greens-based varieties are boring you out. Crunchy coleslaw mix and dried ramen noodles (swap in crunchy rice noodles for a healthier option) are tossed with avocado for healthy fats, edamame for protein, and mango for vision-protecting beta carotene.
3.Quick and Easy Chicken Burrito
Leftover chicken finds a new home in this quick burrito. Mix it with avocado and cheese—we’d take it one step further and toss in some peppers, onions, and maybe some greens—and cook in a pan. Bonus: Make a few at once and freeze the extras for an even faster lunch next time.
4.Salmon and Herbed Bean Salad
Bored with tuna salad? Try canned salmon mixed with creamy, slightly nutty cannellini beans, veggies, and fresh herbs for a super easy meal that’s as delicious on its own as it is in a pita, or with whole-grain crackers.
5.Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas
Stuffed with tasty, healthy ingredients, quesadillas are an easy way to get a quick lunch on the table. This Tex-Mex version pairs black beans and corn with salsa, cheese, and red pepper flakes in a flour tortilla for a filling, fiber-packed meal, especially if use whole-wheat tortillas.
6.Turkey Provolone Wrap with Avocado Mayo
This is not just another turkey sandwich. Smear heart-healthy avocado and mayo on a tortilla and roll up with lettuce, provolone, and tomato. This recipe is soft, creamy, and crunchy, but view it as a starting place and play with other fillings.
Crunchy, oven-baked corn tortillas star in this meal. Once they’re golden and crispy, top with refried beans (or any basic beans), lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, cheese, avocado—this is one recipe to have fun with and see what combinations you can create.
8.Quick and Easy Black Beans and Rice
There’s a reason why rice and beans are so popular: They’re inexpensive and easy—but they can be boring. Not so in this flavorful take. Traditional Latin spices like sofrito, cumin, and chili powder are added to cooked rice. Toss in green chile peppers for heat, black beans for protein, and you have a full meal in no time.
9.Peach Cobbler Oatmeal
Forget flavored oatmeal packets and go au naturel with this oatmeal that’s reminiscent of a cobbler. With fresh peaches, chopped pecans (or your nut of choice), and cinnamon, it will satisfy your sweet tooth so much that you may find yourself making it for dessert.
A combination of delicious rice and pulses packed with flavor. An easy and tasty dinner solution your family will love. No artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
