It's been a while since we were feeling super gung ho about our New Year's resolutions. So while we've pledged to cut down on the bad stuff and eat better this year, the temptation to go back to our old ways is tempting. Luckily, the TODAY Food Club is here to keep us going strong with delicious and creative recipes that work for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Instead of starchy noodles, this gluten-free lasagna by Taylor of Food Faith Fitness calls for layers of thinly-cut zucchini. Ground turkey also keeps the calorie count low and you can easily cut down on the cheese to make it even healthier.
Joanie of ZagLeft looked to South America as inspiration for this dish, which includes a wonderful chimichurri that works on all types of meat. To keep things light, she pairs the sauce with turkey meatballs that are great as a standalone appetizer or pasta topper (remember, go whole grain!).
Pitaya, or dragon fruit, is a tropical superfood that's perfect for jumpstarting the mornings. Laurel and Bec of Athlete Food blends it with bananas, maple water and peanut butter to form a smoothie base for an array of toppings.
Skip the heavily sweetened supermarket stuff and whip up a batch of the delicious breakfast staple at home. Follow this recipe from Janette of Culinary Ginger as a guide, but you can change up the type of fruit every season and easily dial down the sugar levels.
Anne turns kale into a delicious drink by packing her smoothies with pineapple juice and fruits such as mango and strawberry.
Instead of salty seasoned bread crumbs, Baked by an Introvert rolls chunks of boneless chicken in crushed honey-roasted almonds to make crispy nuggets that will definitely be a hit with the kids.
