One of the vegetable dishes that I love to do is stir fry veggies. They are so simple, but really delicious, every time. It doesn’t matter what kind of vegetables you have on hand – or even whether they’re frozen or fresh (or a combination of both). I frequently use fresh onions, peppers and carrots with frozen broccoli and peas. You can also add a can of baby corn, if you like. I don’t use a lot of seasoning on my veggies, just enough to add a little flavor to them. They go so well with teriyaki chicken, grilled salmon or even steak.

This shrimp salad is a favorite. It’s full of flavor, simple, delicious and perfect for a summer meal. The shrimp are marinated before they’re cooked, so they have a spicy Creole flavor that goes so well with the mild salad. Grilling the asparagus and peppers add flavor and a wonderful look to the salad. Drizzle on the lemon juice to keep everything bright and beautiful. This meal is elegant and will definitely become a family favorite.
I don’t know too many guys who don’t consider salads chick food – especially here in the Midwest. But this salad is going to be a hit with the men too. It’s grilled, so it’s perfect for summer. You don’t have to heat up the kitchen with anything at all, you can just cook the pasta and grill the rest of the steak and corn on the cob. The grilling adds a wonderful flavor that you don’t get when you’re cooking inside too. The dressing is wonderfully refreshing and the lime juice makes sure that everything in your salad is bright and beautiful. Give this one a try, and it’ll become a sure hit.
Stuffed peppers were always a staple in my house, growing up. My mom usually made them once every other week, and I can still remember the taste of that delicious beef and rice filling! My healthier version consists of a quinoa and ground chicken filling. It’s mixed with a tangy tomato sauce, seasoned with Italian herbs and topped with a bit of mozzarella cheese. It’s delicious, filling, and just 7 Points + for 2 stuffed pepper halves! And I have to say, it is SOOOOO good. Even better than the one my mom makes — but please don’t tell her that. :) My kids love it too which is a HUGE plus. I also love how quick and easy this is to prepare, so it’s great for a busy weeknight dinner. I usually pair this with some fresh roasted vegetables and or a salad for a complete meal.
When I’m pressed for time during the week, this Chicken and Spinach Sauté Recipe is a life saver. It requires minimal prep and cook time, yet tastes incredibly delicious and is quite healthy. My kids love it too, which is a huge plus. I simply get the chicken into the marinade before I leave to go pickup my kids from school, then come and home and toss it in the skillet for dinner. Easy peasy. The only problem is that it’s so good, there are never any leftovers! Simple, delicious, and satisfying, this Weight Watchers Chicken Recipe is a must try.
For those of us trying to eat low carb, these Thai Chicken Lettuce Cups are a perfect carb-free recipe that is super easy and quick to make, but also tastes absolutely amazing. Ground chicken breast is sautéed with wonderful Thai spices and are then served atop fresh, chilled lettuce leaves. I used romaine leaves with this, so it’s more like Thai Chicken Lettuce Boats, but butter lettuce and iceberg lettuce also work really well if you want more of a “cup-like” form. Each 2 lettuce boat/cup serving is just 5 Points +. On e word of caution…these Thai Chicken Lettuce Cups are incredibly addictive, and you may fid yourself craving that at 1am while watching Netflix…just sayin’.
Fresh fruit is a wonderful accompaniment to any meal right now. It’s so wonderful and ripe, fresh and juicy, it’s just delicious. This delightful salad is a perfect way to change up the boring fruit salad that you’re used to serving with your meal. The little bit of red wine vinegar adds a delicious bite to the salad, while the nutmeg adds a little spice and the lemon juice makes the fruit bright and beautiful. It’s easy to make, delicious and refreshing in the summer heat, perfect for a picnic with the family, or just dessert to finish off a wonderful dinner.
