Savory breakfast lovers rejoice! You can finally enjoy your yogurt without it being sweet. Instead you add a good helping of lentils, black olives, artichoke hearts and sun-dried tomatoes to give it a Mediterranean twist.

As far as casseroles go this one’s off to a good start. It uses slimming ingredients such as brown rice, black beans, and diced tomatoes to keep the Southwest flavor authentic. At the same time it minimizes fatty ingredients like cheese and oil so you can enjoy a delicious South-of-the-border meal without expanding your waistline.

If you’re vegetarian, use Gardein Beefless Ground instead of the turkey.

Slimming Tip: Reduce the amount of turkey and up the beans to slim this recipe down even more.

Roasted Vegetable and Farro Salad [Best Choice]

Farro might not be a well known grain, but that will change as soon as you take a bite of this incredible salad. The deep flavor of roasted veggies marry perfectly with the nutty taste of the grain, for a dish that’s much more filling than typical salads.

Recipe Tip: Look for quick cooking farro at Aldi supermarkets. It cooks in just 10 minutes, so you can have more free time away from your kitchen and still serve a delicious meal.
