Baked Cauliflower Tots

What can't cauliflower do? It's delicious as a puree, makes a great meaty steak and now can be enjoyed as the ultimate finger food — a crunchy tot. We use crispy rice cereal as a gluten-free breading. A hot oven (and a little cooking spray) gets you a crackling exterior without deep-frying.

Marinated Flank Steak with Blue Cheese Sauce

What really takes this marinated flank steak to the next level is the creamy sauce. Low-fat buttermilk is deliciously creamy but has the same amount of fat as 1 percent milk, and just a little bit of blue cheese will go a long way, so you don't need to substitute anything for it.

Healthy Cauliflower Rice

Cauliflower can shine in many forms. This recipe shows how simple it is to turn the florets into a healthy, low-carb meal or side dish — our version has only about 1/4 of the carbohydrates in rice. With the olive oil and browned onions, the cauliflower has enough flavor to satisfy by itself, and it can also be a base for stir-fries, beans and rice, or anything else you would eat with rice.

Spicy Kale-and-Corn-Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Superfood kale and sweet corn create a duo rich in vitamin A. The pepper Jack cheese adds tons of spice while binding the stuffing for the chicken. If spicy's not your thing, try Monterey Jack or Havarti cheese instead for creaminess without the heat.

Get the Recipe: Spicy Kale and Corn Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Curried Chicken Salad

This salad will keep you energized and alert. Juicy grapes and crunchy almonds are the perfect balance to the kick of curry. Nonfat plain yogurt will give great creaminess to the dish so you'll need much less mayonnaise.
