Roasted Beet Salad
Very Good 4.4/5

Think you dislike beets? Not after trying this recipe! Roasting brings out the beets' natural sweetness, and the feta offers a salty contrast.

Skinny Chicken Philly Cheese Sub
Very Good 4.1/5
(74 ratings)

Warm meat, gooey cheese, and grilled vegetables--what's not to love about a Philly cheese steak? How about the more than 1,600 calories in each one! This take on the classic skimps on fat but not flavor.

Use all chickpeas if you don't have fava beans. If you use canned beans, the sodium levels will be higher so omit the salt.

Spring Rolls
Very Good 4.3/5
(78 ratings)

This recipe is really easy; it's really more of a process than a recipe. Rice paper wrappers, which are available in the ethnic sections of most larger supermarkets these days, are a great way to wrap your veggies and protein for a quick snack or light lunch.
