Chicken Caesar Salad with Whole Wheat Croutons

This lighter version of Caesar Salad (345 calories per serving!) uses low-fat yogurt and skips the raw egg yolks. If you don’t have anchovy fillets, substitute 1 tsp (5 ml) anchovy paste instead.

Baked Falafel

This delicious and easy recipe comes from The Buddhist Chef. It recommends quickly frying the falafel patties before baking, but you can skip this step if you like. They brown nicely in the oven.

Cod Fillets Poached in Five-Spice Broth

This meal is light and fresh, with vegetables and flaky fish poached in a perfumed broth. It comes from Epicurious. I've adapted it slightly by using low-sodium both and sodium-reduced soy sauce. You can also use soba noodles instead of udon noodles.…

Halibut with Sesame and Cilantro

Cumin Scented Grilled Pork Tenderloin

This cold weather favourite is packed with fibre and protein, making it a satisfying meal. I like to toss in chopped kale or baby spinch near the end of cooking to get my greens.

Chickpea Curry

Serve this rich, fragrant curry with steamed rice or a piece of naan bread. You can substitute just about any protein-rich food for the chickpeas, including lentils or tofu.
