  1. Mushroom and Swiss Patty Melt with Peas
    Recipe Rating: 3.99711

    We used ground turkey breast meat here, but feel free to use thigh meat or a mix of the two. The darker thigh meat has a little more flavor, but also a little more fat. This method also works using a chicken, beef or veggie burger.

    Recipe Rating: 3.64496

    Substitute shrimp, chicken, tempeh and/or any sale-priced vegetables when making this quick dish with no added fat! Grass-fed beef is a healthier option because studies suggest that grass-fed beef is lower in fat than grain-fed beef. It's more compassionate toward the animals and the planet, too!

  9. Roasted Lemon-Herb Chicken
    Recipe Rating: 4.10561

    This recipe comes to us courtesy of the Renegade Lunch Lady Chef Ann Cooper and her book Lunch Lessons: Changing the Way We Feed our Children. Brining the chicken overnight makes it moist and flavorful. If you decide to use boneless chicken it's only necessary to brine it for 2 to 3 hours. Tuck leftovers (and an ice pack!) into school lunches.

  10. Arugula with Steak, Lemon and Parmesan
    Recipe Rating: 4.13826

    This recipe comes to us courtesy of the Renegade Lunch Lady Chef Ann Cooper and her book Lunch Lessons: Changing the Way We Feed our Children. We love the flavor combination of the spicy arugula, the clean citrus, and the grilled flavor of the meat--not to mention the Parmesan! This is probably best served at home for lunch, but it can also be sent in a lunch box as long as the greens aren't dressed ahead of time--send the dressing on the side.

  19. Easy Shrimp and Grits with Sweet Peppers
    Recipe Rating: 3.81278

    Breakfast, brunch or lunch for a crowd of house guests is not always easy and affordable. This recipe fills them up without draining your wallet. Double it by making twice the grits and sauteing the vegetables and shrimp in batches to keep from crowding the skillet while they cook. Our bacon is fantastic, contains no synthetic nitrates/nitrites, and our strict welfare standards apply to the pigs it comes from. That said, you can make a very delish vegetarian batch by replacing the bacon with sliced mushrooms and olive oil, and omitting the shrimp.

For leftover vegetables, choose green beans, carrots, peas, broccoli or others that were cooked simply with few other ingredients.
