For speed and convenience, prepare the entire package of pasta. Plan to serve 2 cups when you prepare it, and use the rest for tomorrow's lunch or dinner.

Easy Chicken Bake

When thawing chicken under running water, be sure to use cold water. Keep the chicken in its original wrap or place in a water-tight resealable plastic bag. Be careful no to cross-contaminate other food products, work surface or utensils with the dripping water. Package boneless skinless chicken breasts in recipe-size portions in the freezer. Thaw only the amount needed for a recipe.

Vegetable Nachos Grandes

To decrease the sodium in these casserole-style nachos, use organic or low-sodium refried beans.

Cumin'D Black Beans and Rice

Top with a tablespoon of light sour cream for added flavor and richness.

These brown sugar-topped muffins use fresh or frozen blueberries, which re ranked by the USDA as the fruit having the highest level of antioxidants.


You can vary this recipe by substituting ricotta salata or any other sharp-tasting cheese for the feta or by using cannellini, kidney, or black beans in place of the chickpeas.

These fudgy brownies are spread with melted chocolate chips, topped with fluffy marshmallows and crunchy walnuts.
