  1. Healthy Recipe: Coconut Cream Oats

    If you’re a fan of coconut cream pie, you’ll love this genius make-ahead breakfast idea lightly adapted from a recipe in Kat Ashmore’s “Big Bites.” Thickened with tiny, antioxidant-rich chia seeds, these grab-and-go treats are creamy, filling, refreshing, and packed with nutrients and fiber. A sprinkling of toasted coconut adds crunch. Serves 4. Ingredients Instructions […]

  2. Healthy Recipe: Branzino with Asparagus and Scallions

    Branzino is a mild, flaky white fish from the Mediterranean Sea traditionally served whole, roasted, or grilled, with little more than a squeeze of lemon to accentuate its naturally sweet, delicate flesh. Due to overfishing, much of it nowadays is farm-raised, making it widely available throughout US markets. This recipe, adapted from one in Olga […]

  3. Healthy Recipe: Chicken Peperonata

    Peperonata is a rustic southern Italian dish of stewed sweet peppers, tomatoes, garlic, and other savory ingredients. In this recipe, adapted from Ashley Rodriguez’s “Rooted Kitchen,” the mixture is a simmering sauce for boneless, skinless chicken thighs. But it would be just as delicious paired with shrimp, fish, white beans, or tofu for a low-carb, […]

  4. Healthy Recipe, Curried Chickpeas with Spinach and Tomatoes

    This bold-flavored vegan entrée tastes like it’s been simmering for hours yet takes less than 30 minutes to prepare. It’s adapted from Kat Ashmore’s “Big Bites: Wholesome, Comforting Recipes That Are Big on Flavor, Nourishment, and Fun” and consists of inexpensive staples you already have. Canned chickpeas are the principal protein source, delivering vitamins, minerals, […]

  5. Healthy Recipe, Waldorf salad

    This version, lightly adapted from one in “Start Here: Instructions for Becoming a Better Cook” by Sohla El Waylly, pops with flavor and crunch supplied by grapes, toasted walnuts, and blue cheese. It’s a sturdy alternative to flimsy lettuce salads and a great way to use up a half-bunch of celery before it dies in […]

  6. Healthy Recipe, Shrimp Bowls

    Try this health-packed, one-bowl meal adapted from a recipe in Michelle Braxton’s “Supper with Love.” No fancy ingredients are needed. The trick is to cook the vegetables and shrimp separately but in a hot pan to turn the surface a nice shade of golden. A dab of butter is added at the last minute when […]

  7. Healthy Recipe, Mediterranean Breakfast Couscous

    If you’re hankering for an energizing, delicious switch from your breakfast routine, Suzy Karadsheh has just the thing in “The Mediterranean Dish” — couscous! We normally think of the teeny grain-like pasta as a base for a savory stew or a side dish for bold-flavored kebabs. Still, couscous can also stand in as a healthier alternative to […]

  8. Healthy Recipe, Paprika Chicken

    Here’s a way to achieve juicy, crispy-all-over chicken without a rotisserie: Skip the pan and roast the chicken pieces directly on the oven rack. Rub the pieces with smoked paprika for a boost of bold Spanish flavor before popping them in the oven along with the pan of veggies, toss together a simple green salad while […]

  9. Healthy Recipe, Salmon Patties

    There are many great reasons for always keeping a can of salmon in your pantry: It’s inexpensive, has a long shelf life, and is an excellent source of protein and good-for-the-heart omega 3s. And with a few other staples it can transform into a delicious dinner in minutes. This is a case in point. Both […]

  10. Healthy Recipe, Broiled Sea Bass

    Fresh fish doesn’t need a lot. Just a little TLC. This recipe, adapted from Eric Ripert’s “Seafood Simple,” calls for running the fillets under an oven broiler set on low (400 degrees), keeping them from falling apart upon flipping. The fish is seasoned only with salt and pepper and then dressed with a vinaigrette in […]
