Who doesn’t love turkey and cranberries? This wonderful stir fry combines those two flavors with a little flair of Asian. The ginger adds a little spice and the light soy sauce provides a tasty dark and salty flavor. Regular, dark or all purpose soy sauce can be used (all purpose is the most common), but the flavor will be much darker and heavier. This turkey ends up tender and moist each time with the tart and delicious cranberries adding a wonderful color and flavor. It’s quick and easy, and so delicious, you’ll make it again and again.

Summer is in full swing, and I’m all about healthy and delicious Weight Watchers Grilling Recipe that are quick and easy! This Roasted Garlic Cilantro Shrimp Recipe is just the ticket – it’s so fresh and light, yet absolutely bursting with flavor. The roasting of the garlic adds such a wonderful, slightly sweet taste to the sauce, so make sure to NOT skip that step! It’s a bit of extra work, but totally worth it. I also like to take the extra sauce and serve it on the side for dipping, or spoon it over some fresh Italian bread, then place face down on the grill – so incredibly good. For this recipe, I used my cast iron grill pan, but a regular outdoor grill works just as well. Enjoy!

Everyone loves it, it’s a vegetable side dish (there’s rarely enough of those) and I never go home with leftovers. This colorful salad is perfect for backyard picnics and BBQ’s this weekend for Independence Day. The bright colors of the broccoli, cauliflower and red onion are summery and the raisins adds a little sweet to the salad. Reduced fat mayonnaise (especially if you use a canola based mayonnaise) make it a great choice for a vegetable side dish.

If the soup is served hot, it can be garnished with a little cream on the top of each bowl.
