SALADS

Can’t find a good lower-carb option at your local take-out joint? Don’t worry, you can toss together this steak salad featuring lean flank flavored with a sweet and sour honey-lime marinade. The recipe calls for mango, but you can sub pineapple chunks if mango isn’t in season. Recipe makes 4 salads.

Take a break from romaine! Asian-inspired salads take advantage of root vegetables like carrots to deliver a sweet crunch. The tangy, ginger lime peanut dressing makes this salad a perfect pairing for bland grilled chicken breast. A mandoline works best for this recipe, but you can also use a spiralizer or julienne peeler. Recipe makes 4 servings at 1 cup each.

Five ingredients are all you need to transform fiber-filled, protein-packed edamame into a side-worthy salad. While cranberries and feta cheese aren’t traditionally used in Asian cuisine, we’re willing to make an exception for this sweet-salty pairing. Recipe makes 6 servings at 3/4 cup each.

STIR-FRYS

This homemade beef and broccoli stir-fry satisfies your take-out cravings without being a calorie bomb. Trimmed beef top round and crisp broccoli are cooked in a savory soy sauce base. We suggest serving over brown rice or a whole grain of your choice so you can also hit your fiber goal. Recipe makes 4 servings.

Fire up those barbecue grills, because these beef kabobs are going to be worth it! Lean beef chuck gets the sweet and sour treatment before grilling seals in the juices. A simple garden vegetable sauté completes your summertime meal with zucchini, corn, green beans and tomatoes galore. Recipe makes 4 servings at 2 skewers plus 1/4 vegetable sauté.

Craving a yummy stir-fry, but don’t want to be weighed down by grease? This smoky pork stir-fry could be your solution. Lean pork tenderloin gets its depth of flavor from smoked paprika and a drizzle of sesame oil. The stir-fry pairs well with brown rice or soba noodles. Recipe makes 4 servings at 1 cup each.

NOODLES
