Superfoods for a Super Body
There are lots of foods that are good for you. But these 10 superfoods go beyond a simple vitamin dose here or a nutrient-drenched nibble there. These are research-backed, expert-beloved disease fighters and energy boosters. Making them your go-to eats is easy. Here, we've got a month's worth of recipes and a menu planner just for you.
The Superfoods are:
3 cups chopped vegetables (broccoli, potato, bell pepper)
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 F. Mix together garlic, cheese and 1 tsp. oil. Pat garlic-cheese mixture onto chicken and place on baking sheet. Toss vegetables with 2 tsp. oil, salt and pepper and place on baking sheet. Cook for 20 minutes, or until chicken reaches 165 F and vegetables are tender.
Broil or grill salmon for about 8 minutes per inch of thickness. Cook pasta according to package directions. Heat broccoli in microwave until warm, about 4 minutes. Whisk together melted butter, broth or water, lemon zest and juice, and garlic. Toss penne with broccoli and place cooked salmon on top. Drizzle lemon-butter sauce over all.
1 3-ounce chicken breast (or use rotisserie chicken, skin removed)
2 cups baby spinach
1/2 cup shredded carrots
2 tbsp. slivered walnuts
2 tbsp. balsamic vinaigrette
1 whole-grain hamburger bun, toasted
Brush barbecue sauce on chicken and bake or grill until it reaches 165 F. (To save time, use rotisserie chicken, skin removed.) Toss spinach, carrots and walnuts with dressing. Put chicken on toasted bun; serve with salad.
Steak Salad with Lemon-Walnut Vinaigrette and Whole-Grain Roll
3 ounces steak
1 lemon, juiced
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. walnuts
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
3 cups baby spinach
1 whole-grain roll
Grill or broil steak until it reaches about 160 F (medium), and slice. In a blender or mini food processor, pulse lemon juice, oil, walnuts and mustard until smooth. Toss spinach and steak slices with dressing.
Serve with whole-grain roll.
