Relax after work with a cold drink while this savory chicken marinates in an herby tomato blend for an hour, then toss it on the grill. It tastes just like summer. —Laura Lunardi, West Chester, Pennsylvania
Serve your grilled chicken with a side of grilled sweet potatoes or another high-fiber carbohydrate.
This tasty Asian tofu was the first meatless recipe my fiance made for me. It's a wonderful light protein and is so easy to pair with broiled or grilled veggies such as eggplant, asparagus or even tomatoes. —Emily Steers, Los Angeles, California
To increase the amount of fiber in this meal, serve your tofu with a scoop of quinoa.
The subtle blend of fine herbs doesn’t overtake other flavors in these omelets—it enhances them. Garnish with extra herbs or shredded Asiago cheese for a special breakfast, lunch or dinner.—Lee Lockwood, Maybrook, New York
