Watermelon Radish and Arugula Salad
This simple, fresh salad is perfect for the upcoming spring. The watermelon radishes give this dish a vibrant pop of color, in addition to being great for you. Radishes provide essential minerals and many B vitamins which are important for everyday body functions. Along with the vitamin-packed leafy green arugula, this salad is full of nutrients. A homemade citrus vinaigrette and feta or goat cheese top off this dish.
Pork, Shrimp, Shiitake, and Cabbage Bowl
This meal is quick and easy for a weeknight. Shiitake mushrooms have been shown to help in weight loss and brain function. They contain many B vitamins and vitamin D. The mushrooms are paired with cabbage, which is full of fiber. Combined with the pork, shrimp, and rice, this is the perfect dinner for when you’re craving something savory.
Roasted Rosemary and Thyme Chicken, Carrots, and Potatoes
This recipe is another easy weeknight dinner because it only requires one pan. The chicken, carrots, and potatoes are all roasted together and seasoned with herbs and lemon. We all know carrots are good for us, but most people don’t think about herbs having benefits as well. Thyme can help heal an array of sicknesses from an upset stomach to a sore throat. It’s also an appetite stimulant, so you should be able to eat this dish up!
Roasted Jerusalem Artichokes
These Jerusalem artichokes (or sun chokes) are roasted in the oven and topped off with feta cheese and dill. You can also substitute potatoes for the artichokes in this recipe if you don’t have any on hand in the future. Jerusalem artichokes support the good bacteria in your gut and help flush away the bad. They can also help support your immune system with vitamins A, C, and E. These artichokes make the perfect side dish or appetizer.
Unstuffed Cabbage Roll Soup
This soup combines the flavors of beef stew with a traditional cabbage roll. It’s a great way to use the rest of your cabbage leftover from the Pork, Shrimp, Shiitake, and Cabbage Bowl. This soup has shredded carrots and diced tomato along with the cabbage. Tomatoes are high in vitamin C, which will kick any remaining cold you have from the winter. You can also double this recipe to make leftovers and eat it for lunch the next day.
