1. Greek Salad Wrap

This wrap is a great way to enjoy a classic Greek salad in a portable and convenient way. You will need whole wheat tortillas, romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, feta cheese, olives, and a simple dressing made with olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Just chop up the veggies, toss them with the dressing and cheese, and spoon them over the tortillas. Fold the tortillas and enjoy your fresh and crunchy wrap.

2. Quinoa-Stuffed Bell Peppers

These stuffed peppers are a hearty and colorful dish that will fill you up with protein, fiber, and antioxidants. You will need bell peppers (any color), cooked quinoa, black beans, corn, salsa, cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, and shredded cheese. Cut the tops off the peppers and remove the seeds and membranes. In a large bowl, mix the quinoa, beans, corn, salsa, and spices. Spoon the mixture into the peppers and top with cheese. Bake in a preheated oven at 375°F for 25 minutes or until the peppers are tender and the cheese is melted.

3. Berry Spinach Smoothie

This smoothie is a delicious way to start your day with a boost of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. You will need frozen mixed berries, fresh spinach leaves, plain Greek yogurt, almond milk, honey, and vanilla extract. Just blend everything together until smooth and creamy. You can also add some ice cubes if you like your smoothie thicker. Enjoy your refreshing and energizing drink.

4. Black Bean Avocado Tacos

These tacos are a quick and easy meal that will satisfy your cravings for Mexican food without compromising your health. You will need corn or whole wheat tortillas, canned black beans (rinsed and drained), avocado (peeled and sliced), shredded cabbage or lettuce, cilantro leaves, lime juice, salt, pepper, and your favorite salsa. In a small saucepan over medium heat, warm up the beans with some water and mash them slightly with a fork. In a small bowl, toss the avocado with lime juice and salt. To assemble the tacos, spread some beans over each tortilla, top with avocado slices, cabbage or lettuce, cilantro leaves, salsa, and more lime juice if desired.

5. Zucchini Noodle Stir-Fry

This stir-fry is a low-carb and gluten-free alternative to traditional noodles that is just as tasty and satisfying. You will need zucchini (spiralized into noodles), olive oil, garlic (minced), ginger (grated), soy sauce (low sodium), honey, sesame oil, sesame seeds, and your choice of protein (chicken, tofu, shrimp, etc.) and vegetables (carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, etc.). In a large skillet over high heat, cook your protein until done and set aside. In the same skillet over medium-high heat, add some olive oil and sauté your garlic and ginger for about a minute. Add your vegetables and stir-fry until crisp-tender. Add your soy sauce and honey and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until slightly thickened. Add your zucchini noodles and toss to coat with the sauce. Sprinkle some sesame oil and sesame seeds over the stir-fry and serve with your protein.

6. Sweet Potato Black Bean Burgers

These burgers are a vegetarian-friendly option that are packed with flavor and texture. You will need sweet potatoes (peeled and cubed), canned black beans (rinsed and drained), bread crumbs, egg, onion (chopped), garlic (minced), cumin, paprika, salt, pepper, olive oil, and whole wheat buns. In a large pot of boiling water, cook the sweet potatoes until soft and drain. In a large bowl, mash the beans with a fork and add the bread crumbs and egg. Mix well and set aside. In a small skillet over medium heat, cook the onion and garlic until soft and add the cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Stir well and transfer to the bean mixture. Mix well and form into patties. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to firm up. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat some olive oil and cook the patties for about 4 minutes per side or until golden and crisp. Serve on buns with your favorite toppings.

7. Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats

These overnight oats are a perfect make-ahead breakfast that will keep you full and satisfied until lunch. You will need rolled oats, plain Greek yogurt, almond milk, honey, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and apple (chopped). In a large bowl, whisk together the yogurt, milk, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Add the oats and apple and stir well. Divide the mixture into four mason jars or containers and refrigerate overnight or up to 3 days. Enjoy cold or warm in the microwave.
