#SpoonTip: Freaked out by the grocery store? Here is a beginner’s guide to healthy food shopping.
Burrata, Prosciutto, & Arugula Flatbread
Want to eat a more upscale gourmet version of pizza? Go for flatbread instead of normal pizza. Plus prosciutto and arugula = instant class. So fancy.
Hatch Chile Mac & Cheese
A classic American meal, with a touch of chile. The chiles are a great addition to the same old Mac & Cheese dinner. Definitely worth the calories.
Thai Sweet Chili Veggie Burger
For all you vegetarians, this veggie burger with a Thai twist is sure to please. Change it up from the generic veggie burger that I’m sure you’re sick of eating. For a healthier alternative, add a patty to your salad instead of eating it as a sandwich. Eat with a side of healthy Healthy Veggie Chips.
Alsatian Style Onion Tart
A new addition to Trader Joe’s with a unique topping and a crunchy crust. Serve as a main course, appetizer, or side dish. It also makes for a great and satisfying snack.
Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings
Who needs soup in a bowl when your soup is already in a dumpling. No need to go looking for a dim sum eatery when you can make these at home. It has all of the flavor of that really good restaurant around the corner with the added convenience. Never heard of dim sum? Check out this Dim Sum for dummies.
British Pub Pies
There’s always that one friend that studied abroad in London that won’t stop talking about meat pies. Now you can be up to date on their infatuation. Common in England, these different pies are full of meat, gravy, and veggies. The Brits are obsessed with these pies, and we should be too. British food is much missed in America.
Panettone French Toast
Don’t forget about breakfast! If you’re feeling adventurous, why not add some whipped cream too? Really, what could be better in the morning than French toast made from a traditional Italian Christmas bread?
Black Bean & Corn Enchilada
Try this classic Mexican food with a base of sweet tomato sauce. Healthy bonus: it’s made with organic ingredients. Go crazy and make some guacamole for the perfect side dish to this meal.
Shiitake Mushroom Chicken
Make sure to try this exotic chicken. Don’t forget to add some rice to compliment this ginger soy sauce medley, or serve it over some steamed veggies if you’re feeling extra healthy.
Lastly, an Italian favorite. It heats in only a few minutes! Healthy bonus: the eggplant is grilled, not fried.
