This simple, flavourful salad is bursting with antioxidants. Use mangos that are slightly firm so they hold their shape when you mix the salad. You can also serve this salad as a salsa paired with grilled fish or chicken.

Spicy Sesame Swiss Chard

Swiss chard is truly a nutrition powerhouse. It's packed with antioxidants, magnesium, potassium and bone-building vitamin K. This version of the sauteéd green gets a flavour boost from toasted sesame oil.

Thai Roasted Trout with Fresh Lime

Rainbow trout is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids that help keep your heart, brain and eyes healthy. This dish is as delicious as it is simple to make.

Mediterranean Pasta Salad

This is one of my favourite salads. It's a simple dinner, especially if you live in warmer climates, and the leftovers are great for next day's lunch. This salad is loaded with flavour and can be made the day before.

Roasted Ratatouille

This roasted vegetable dish is delicious and makes plenty of leftovers for quick weekday lunches and dinners. At only 107 calories per serving, it delivers plenty of fibre and antioxidants. From Bonnie Stern's More Heartsmart Cooking.

Red Lentil Soup

Chipotle Chili

Chipotle chili powder gives chili a rich, smoky flavour. Save some of this chili for leftovers - it's even tastier the next day.

Spicy Sweet Potato Wedges

This is one of those easy-to-make recipes the whole family will love. And it's loaded with beta-carotene, an antioxidant thought to guard against cardiovascular disease.
