Spotlight Recipes: Soul-Warming Stews

For a change of pace, try chicken, lamb, beans or seafood as the main attraction in your stew. Stews contain a variety of veggies -- carrots, potatoes, onions and celery -- that add immune-boosting vitamins, an extra boost for the cold and flu season that's coming.

Spotlight Recipe: Michelada

Want something more exciting than bottled beer for your game-day bash? If your friends are Bloody Mary fans, this Mexican cocktail might be a winner. Lime and hot sauce liven up the flavor without adding calories.

Spotlight Recipes: Chutney

Chutney is a simmered-down or pureed combo of fruit (or veggies), spices and herbs. Instead of deep frying or drowning your fish, pork or meat in heavy sauces, opt for a tangy bite of chutney instead.

Spotlight Recipes: Gazpacho

Enjoy a refreshingly cool (and super healthy) soup this summer. Traditional gazpacho is a pureed mixture of fresh tomatoes, sweet bell peppers, onions, celery and cucumbers but don’t be afraid to get creative. Shake things up—blend a batch of watermelon, red pepper or white grape gazpacho instead.

Spotlight Recipes: Granita

Dig in to these delicious frozen treats that are reminiscent of Italian ices. Granita’s are harder in texture than sorbets and contain less sugar. To make a granita, cook up a simple sugar (combo of sugar and water) and add flavors such as coffee, mint, juice and wine along with fruit. Once the mixture has begun to freeze (it takes about 3 hours), scrape the ice crystals every so often as they start to form. Once frozen, scoop and serve.

Spotlight Recipes: Picnic Salads

Picnic season has arrived. Fire up the grill, toss on the hamburgers and steaks and don’t forget about those scrumptious side salads. Instead of gobs of fat and oodles of calories, here are delicious (and healthy) versions of the classics.

Spotlight Recipes: Tuna Time

Whether it's from the can or a fresh steak, tuna works for more than just the mayo-sodden salad. Try these healthy recipes.
