We gave this lean lunchtime staple an exotic twist. A bit of curry powder spices it up, some dried cranberries add unexpected sweetness, and cucumber offers much-needed texture. A mix of olive oil-based mayo and fat-free Greek yogurt keep the salad creamy yet low in fat.
Swap cooked chicken, diced firm tofu, canned salmon, canned shrimp, or hard-cooked eggs for the tuna.

Lean beef can dry out easily, and it lacks the flavor of fatter cuts. So how do you create a burger you'll crave? You fill it with the good stuff. Chef Meg's son Ian specializes in what he calls "Juicy Lucys." He puts onions, mushrooms, peppers, or cheese inside a serving of extra lean turkey or beef and grills it. The result? A burger that will satisfy even teenage boys. This version is slightly more sophisticated but just as simple. The balsamic and thyme add great flavor, and you'll find that you need little more than juicy tomatoes, crisp lettuce, and perhaps a smear of good quality mustard (or a squirt of ketchup).

Cookies for breakfast? Yep. Especially when they're packed with heart-healthy fats, plenty of fiber and protein, with no added sugar. Not only are they a great on-the-go breakfast, but they're also a mighty fine snack.
