Starting your day with a healthy breakfast is a great way to avoid
high-calorie snacking. Here are a few more ways to reduce calories
and fat with smart substitutions in your recipes:
• Choose whole-grain bread instead of white bread—check to make
sure the first ingredient says “whole” on bread labeled wheat.
• Choose 1% or skim milk over whole milk.
• Eat reduced-fat cheese instead of regular cheese.
• Prepare healthy breakfast options such as homemade granola or
low-fat muffins the night before to save time in the morning.
Associate Tips
Layering non-fat vanilla yogurt, Kashi® GOLEAN® Crunch cereal and
your favorite berries makes a quick, easy and healthy yogurt parfait
for breakfast.
~Terri, Store 6931
For a quick breakfast, toast store-bought whole-grain waffles and top
with all natural peanut butter, sliced banana and a drizzle of raw
honey.You won’t even miss the syrup!

Ham & Cheese Breakfast Casserole
CALORIES
per serving
This healthy update of a traditionally rich ham-and-cheese breakfast strata is made lighter primarily
by losing a few egg yolks and using nonfat milk.
Prep time: 30 minutes
Total time: 1-3/4 hours
To make ahead: Prepare casserole and refrigerate overnight. Let stand at room temperature while the oven
preheats. Bake as directed.
4 large eggs
4 large egg whites
1 cup nonfat milk
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
5 cups chopped spinach, wilted (see note)
4 cups whole-grain bread, crusts removed if desired, cut into 1-inch cubes (4-6 slices)
1 cup diced ham steak
1/2 cup chopped jarred roasted red peppers
3/4 cup shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese
Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a 7 x 11-inch glass baking dish or a 2-quart casserole with cooking spray.
Whisk eggs, egg whites and milk in a medium bowl. Add mustard, rosemary and pepper; whisk to combine.
Toss spinach, bread, ham and roasted red peppers in a large bowl. Add the egg mixture and toss well to coat.
Transfer to the prepared baking dish and push down to compact. Cover with foil.
Bake until the custard has set, 40 to 45 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with cheese and continue baking until it
is puffed and golden on top, 15 to 20 minutes more. Transfer to a wire rack and cool for 15 to 20 minutes
before serving.
Note: To wilt spinach, rinse thoroughly with cool water. Transfer to a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover with
plastic wrap and punch several holes in it. Microwave on high until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Squeeze out
excess moisture before adding the spinach to the recipe.

Try to make a healthy lunch a priority each day. Here are a few tips
to consider when looking for healthy options:
• Eat leftovers from a healthy dinner.
• Create a simple side salad of vegetables or a serving of fruit.
• Use reduced-fat mayonnaise instead of regular, or even better,
use mustard.
• Get an extra serving of vegetables by slipping spinach, shredded
cabbage or tomatoes into your sandwich.
• Substitute whole-wheat or vegetable pasta instead of regular
pasta.

Tuna salad with a twist...of lettuce. These tuna lettuce wraps are a great summer twist on a
sandwich. It’s a finger food that kids will enjoy.
Prep time: 7 minutes
Drain 2 cans of tuna packed in water. With tuna still in cans rinse and strain with cool tap water 3 times (this
removes any excess oils still present). Remove tuna and put in a medium mixing bowl. Stir in 3 tablespoons of
light mayonnaise—or to taste. Sprinkle with 2 pinches of ground pepper and celery salt. Mix tuna, mayo and
seasonings with a fork until evenly mixed.
Core, rinse/wash and drain head of lettuce, removing any wilted or browned leaves. Take 6 large outer leaves

the tuna and close with a toothpick, repeat with each leaf until the tuna mixture is all used.
Arrange the lettuce tuna rolls on a plate. Garnish with tomatoes and fresh parsley sprigs. Could also garnish

Notes:
• Look for whole-wheat pizza-dough balls at your supermarket. Check the ingredient list to make sure the
dough doesn’t contain any hydrogenated oils. Or visit eatingwell.com for an easy pizza-dough recipe.
• While we love the convenience of canned beans, they tend to be high in sodium. Give them a good rinse
before adding to a recipe to rid them of some of their sodium (up to 35%) or opt for low-sodium or
no-salt-added varieties. (Our recipes are analyzed with rinsed, regular canned beans.) Or, if you have the
time, cook your own beans from scratch. You’ll find our Bean Cooking Guide at eatingwell.com/guides.
• Hulled pumpkin seeds, also known as pepitas, are dusky green and have a delicate nutty flavor. They can
be found in the natural-food or bulk sections of many supermarkets.

It’s the middle of the day and your stomach is grumbling! Eating a
healthy snack is a good way to boost your energy before returning
to the task at hand. Some good snack tips include:
• Plan ahead—have snacks ready to take with you.
• Portion control—use small plastic sandwich bags for individual
servings.
• Satisfy hunger by including protein and fiber in your snacks.
• Be wary of pre-packaged snacks—vending machine snacks tend
to be high in calories and preservatives and low in nutrients, so
take your own snacks whenever possible.
Associate Tip
Did you know you can make quick, tasty, healthy kale chips? Spread
kale leaves on a cookie sheet, top with oil and vinegar or olive oil
cooking spray and sprinkle lightly with salt or your favorite seasoning.
Bake at 350°F for 10 minutes until crispy. Enjoy!

Chickpea Polenta with Olives
CALORIES
per serving
1-3/4 cups chickpea (garbanzo) flour
2 cups plain soy milk
1 cup chicken stock, vegetable stock or broth
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme, oregano or basil, or 1 teaspoon dried
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 egg whites
In a blender or food processor, combine the flour, soy milk, stock, olive oil, garlic, thyme, mustard, salt and
pepper. Process until smooth. Pour the batter into a large bowl. Let stand for 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Lightly coat a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
In a large, clean bowl, using an electric mixer on high speed, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Gently fold the egg whites into the batter.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until puffed and lightly browned around the edges, about
15 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes.
Preheat the broiler. Position the rack 4 inches from the heat source.
While the polenta is cooling, make the topping. In a small sauté or frying pan, heat the olive oil over mediumhigh heat. Add the onion and cook until soft and lightly golden, about 6 minutes. Add the olives and
tomatoes and cook for 1 minute. Remove from the heat.
Carefully spoon the onion mixture evenly over the baked polenta and sprinkle with the cheese. Broil until
the top is lightly browned. Watch carefully; this takes only about 1 minute. Sprinkle with the parsley. Transfer
to a wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes. Cut into 8 squares and then cut the squares on the diagonal into
16 wedges. Serve immediately.

Twenty-five minutes before serving, cook the rice according to package directions.
Meanwhile, cut away the peel and white pith of the orange. Cut the orange into thin half-moons and place

Using two forks, gently shred the chicken into medium pieces and stir into the cooking liquid. Fill the lettuce
leaves with the rice and top with the chicken and the orange mixture.

Melted Gruyere
CALORIES
per serving
For this elegant dish, boneless chicken breast and asparagus are smothered in a luxurious white wine
sauce with just the right amount of melted Gruyere cheese. Tarragon and lemon add a delicious light
flavor that is perfect with asparagus.
Prep time: 35 minutes
8 ounces asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
2/3 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 teaspoons plus 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, divided
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (1 to 1 1/4 pounds), trimmed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 shallot, thinly sliced
1/2 cup white wine
1/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon or 1 teaspoon dried
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2/3 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
Place a steamer basket in a large saucepan, add 1 inch of water and bring to a boil. Add asparagus; cover and
steam for 3 minutes. Uncover, remove from the heat and set aside.
Whisk broth and 2 teaspoons flour in a small bowl until smooth. Set aside.
Place the remaining 1/4 cup flour in a shallow dish. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper and dredge both sides
in the flour, shaking off any excess.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per
side, adjusting heat as needed to prevent scorching. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.

Chipotle-&-Orange
Grilled Chicken
CALORIES
per serving
Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes
2 tablespoons orange-juice concentrate, thawed
1 tablespoon finely chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons unsulfured molasses
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed
Salt to taste
Preheat grill or broiler.
Whisk together orange-juice concentrate, chipotle pepper, vinegar, molasses and mustard in a small bowl.
Lightly oil the grill or broiler rack (see Tips). Season chicken with salt and grill or broil for 2 minutes. Turn,
brush with the glaze and cook for 4 minutes, brushing occasionally with glaze. Turn again, brush with the
glaze, and cook until the center is no longer pink, 1 to 2 minutes longer.
Tips:
• Chipotle chiles in adobo sauce are smoked jalapeños packed in a flavorful sauce. Look for the small cans
with the Mexican foods in large supermarkets. Once opened, they’ll keep up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator
or 6 months in the freezer.
• To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking
spray on a hot grill.) When grilling delicate foods like tofu and fish, it is helpful to spray the food with
cooking spray.

Grilled Eggplant
Parmesan Sandwich
CALORIES
per serving
Our healthier eggplant Parmesan sandwich uses tender, smoky grilled eggplant instead of fried, so it
has a fraction of the fat and calories. To make these sandwiches a cinch to prepare, make sure to have
all your ingredients ready before you head out to the grill.
Prep time: 45 minutes
Preheat grill to medium-high.
Place eggplant rounds on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt. Coat both sides lightly with cooking spray.
Combine Parmesan (or Asiago) and mozzarella in a small bowl. Brush both sides of focaccia (or rustic bread)
with oil.
Place spinach in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and punch several holes in the wrap.
Microwave on high until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Combine tomatoes and 2 tablespoons basil in a small
microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave until bubbling, about 2 minutes.
Place all your ingredients on the baking sheet with the eggplant and take it to the grill. Grill the eggplant slices
until brown and soft on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Grill the bread until toasted, about 1 minute per side.
Return the eggplant and bread to the baking sheet. Reduce grill heat to medium.
Place 1 eggplant round on top of each slice of bread. Layer 1 tablespoon tomatoes, 1 tablespoon wilted spinach
and 1 tablespoon cheese on each slice of eggplant. Repeat with the remaining eggplant, tomatoes, spinach and
cheese. Sprinkle each stack with some of the remaining basil. Place the baking sheet on the grill, close the lid and
grill until the eggplant stack is hot and the cheese is melted, 5 to 7 minutes.

Grilled Fruit with
Balsamic Vinegar Syrup
CALORIES
per serving
Grilling caramelizes the natural sugar found in fruit, which turns the sugar brown, makes it
sticky and intensifies its sweetness. Balsamic vinegar with its sweet-yet-tart flavor is a wonderful
complement to grilled fruit.
1 small pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into wedges
2 large mangoes, cored and cut in half
2 large peaches, cored and cut in half
Nonstick, butter-flavored cooking spray
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
Mint or basil leaves for garnish
In a large bowl, combine the pineapple, mangoes and peaches. Spray generously with cooking spray. Toss
and spray again to ensure the fruit is well coated. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Toss to coat evenly. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, heat the balsamic vinegar over low heat. Simmer until the liquid is reduced in half,
stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat.
Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill or heat a gas grill or broiler. Away from the heat source, lightly coat the
grill rack or broiler pan with cooking spray. Position the cooking rack 4 to 6 inches from the heat source.
Place the fruit on the grill racks or broiler pan. Grill or broil over medium heat until the sugar caramelizes,
about 3 to 5 minutes.
Remove the fruit from the grill and arrange onto individual serving plates. Drizzle with balsamic syrup and
garnish with mint or basil. Serve immediately.

Instead of the usual breaded and fried fish, this fish is grilled, Mediterranean style. You may substitute
swordfish, halibut, sea bass or any other whitefish, and the calorie values are similar.
Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill or heat a gas grill or broiler. Away from the heat source, lightly coat the grill
rack or broiler pan with cooking spray. Position the cooking rack 4 to 6 inches from the heat source.
In a small bowl, combine the basil, parsley, minced garlic and lemon juice.
Spray the fish with cooking spray. Sprinkle with black pepper. Top each fillet with equal amounts of the basilgarlic mixture. Place the fish herb-side down on the grill.
Grill over high heat. When the edges turn white, after about 3 to 4 minutes, turn the fish over and place on
aluminum foil. Move the fish to a cooler part of the grill or reduce the heat. Grill until the fish is opaque
throughout when tested with the tip of a knife and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest
part of the fish reads 145°F (about 4 minutes longer).
Remove the salmon and place on warmed plates. Garnish with green olives and lemon slices.

Beef and Vegetable Kabobs
CALORIES
per serving
Marinating meat before grilling not only adds flavor but also reduces the chance that cancercausing substances will form on the meat during grilling. Marinating also helps keep meat from
burning and charring.
1/2 cup brown rice
2 cups water
4 ounces top sirloin (choice)
3 tablespoons fat-free Italian dressing
1 green pepper, seeded and cut into 4 pieces
4 cherry tomatoes
1 small onion, cut into 4 wedges
2 wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes, or metal skewers
In a saucepan over high heat, combine the rice and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover
and simmer until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender, about 30 to 45 minutes. Add more water if
necessary to keep the rice from drying out. Transfer to a small bowl to keep warm.
Cut the meat into 4 equal portions. Put the meat in a small bowl and pour Italian dressing over the top.
Put in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes to marinate, turning as needed.
Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill or heat a gas grill or a broiler. Away from the heat source, lightly coat the
grill rack or broiler pan with cooking spray. Position the cooking rack 4 to 6 inches from the heat source.
Thread 2 cubes of meat, 2 green pepper slices, 2 cherry tomatoes and 2 onion wedges onto each skewer.
Place the kebabs on the grill rack or broiler pan. Grill or broil the kebabs for about 5 to 10 minutes, turning
as needed.
Divide the rice onto individual plates. Top with 1 kebab and serve immediately.

per serving
Romaine lettuce is flavorful and has more vitamin A, vitamin C, folate and calcium than iceberg lettuce.
2 (3 ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 tablespoons fat-free Italian dressing
In a sealable plastic bag, add the chicken and Italian dressing. Put in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, turning the

the grill rack or broiler pan with cooking spray. Position the cooking rack 4 to 6 inches from the heat source.
Put the shrimp in a grill basket or on skewers and place on the grill. Turn the shrimp after 3 to 4 minutes.
The cooking time varies depending on the heat of the fire, so watch carefully.

Grilled Portobello
Mushroom Burgers
CALORIES
per serving
The meaty-textured portobello mushroom is the perfect stand-in for a hamburger. One portobello
mushroom has about 30 calories and no fat or cholesterol. By comparison, a 3-ounce hamburger patty
has 235 calories, 16 grams of fat and 76 milligrams of cholesterol.
Clean mushrooms with a damp cloth and remove their stems. Place in a glass dish, stem (gill) side up.
To prepare the marinade, in a small bowl whisk together the vinegar, water, sugar, garlic, cayenne pepper and
olive oil. Drizzle the marinade over the mushrooms. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for about 1 hour,
turning mushrooms once.
Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill or heat a gas grill or broiler. Away from the heat source, lightly coat the grill
rack or broiler pan with cooking spray. Position the cooking rack 4 to 6 inches from the heat source.
Grill or broil the mushrooms on medium heat, turning often, until tender, about 5 minutes on each side. Baste
with marinade to keep from drying out. Using tongs, transfer the mushrooms to a plate.
Place each mushroom on a bun and top with 1 tomato slice, 1 onion slice and 1/2 lettuce leaf. Serve immediately.
