Tropical Grilled Chicken
Very Good 4.5/5
(149 ratings)

We love shredding this sweet and savory chicken to turn it into tacos, but it's also delicious as is with a side of grilled veggies.

Chicken Breasts with Red Wine Sauce
Very Good 4.4/5
(135 ratings)

This is a lighter take on the classic Italian preparation of Chicken Cacciatore (or Chicken Hunter Style). Our made-over version uses white meat rather than dark and less oil to cut almost 60 calories per serving and reduce the fat and sodium of the traditional recipe.

Spring Rolls
Very Good 4.3/5
(80 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.

Roasted Beet Salad
Very Good 4.4/5

SP_Stepf's Baked Veggie Burritos
Very Good 4.3/5
(47 ratings)

Black beans, sweet potatoes and greens are spiced up and baked in egg roll wrappers to create burritos that are heavy on taste and light on calories. (Feel free to change this recipe with what you've got in the fridge. No sweet potatoes? Try zucchini or butternut squash. Swap kale for spinach, Swiss chard or your favorite green! Instead of black beans, try kidney, pinto or garbanzo beans.)
