The calendar has officially turned to March, and while it’s not quite spring, we’re going to plan otherwise. With the new season on our minds, we’ve built a menu that celebrates bright, vibrant flavors and fresh produce galore. We’re making everything from an Arugula Pesto ‘Zoodle’ Bowl to an epic Italian Chopped Salad, and we’ve even included a Tropical Green Smoothie for an added dose of veggies. Let’s ignore the fact that it’s technically still winter and eat in celebration of the season ahead.
Weeknight meals have never been more delicious thanks to these easy salmon rice bowls. With just a little curry powder and olive oil, you’ll dress up your salmon filets before heading in the oven for a quick bake. Meanwhile, you’ll make a sauce stovetop with coconut milk, lime juice, fresh ginger and more. All that’s left to do is assemble your bowl and spoon that curry sauce on top. Add a generous handful of chopped herbs (cilantro or basil work beautifully), and you’re all set.
If homemade pizza isn’t making a regular occurrence on your weekly menu plan, it’s time to reconsider. This version from Inspired With a Twist uses roasted mushrooms, sliced prosciutto, and all the fresh herbs for a spring-inspired kick. And did we mention there are dollops of creamy burrata cheese in the equation? Grab a pre-made pizza dough to save time (Trader Joe’s garlic and herb is our favorite), and use whichever sauce base you prefer. In short, this recipe is about to elevate your family’s pizza night.
Looking for a gluten-free, whole 30 compliant dinner idea? This recipe is just the ticket! You’ll replace traditional pasta with zucchini noodles and toss in a bright pesto sauce for tons of added flavor. If you’re looking to save time, check your store’s freezer section for ready-made ‘zoodle’ options and pick up a quality store-bought pesto for crazy quick dinner prep. To finish off your dish, you’ll add grape tomatoes, prosciutto, pancetta, and almonds for a well-rounded meal.
Nothing says bright, zesty and flavorful like a Mediterranean-style meal. *Enter* these homemade turkey burgers dressed up with feta, onions, herbs, and a delish tzatziki sauce. You can easily make these stovetop, throw them on the grill, or even bake them in the oven for super easy cleanup. To serve, you’ll want sliced tomatoes, lettuce leaves, multigrain buns, and all the tzatziki. Whip these up on the next sunny day, and savor that springtime flavor.
Anyone else getting bored in their current lunchtime routine? Us too. It’s time to ditch the turkey sandwich and make this epic chopped salad instead. It’s loaded with chickpeas, provolone, tomatoes, red onions, and pickled pepperoncinis for a nice spicy kick. Follow the recipe for a homemade Italian dressing, or use your favorite store-bought version instead. Either way, this salad is guaranteed to step up your lunch game tenfold.
Have you hopped on the overnight oats breakfast trend yet? If not, now is the time to do so! You simply whip up everything the night before and wake up to a healthy, delicious breakfast you can enjoy on busy weekdays and slow weekends alike. Ashlea of All the Healthy things packs her oats with chia seeds, greek yogurt, fresh strawberries and cashew butter for an extra dose of protein. The end result is a breakfast, brunch, or snack option you can feel good about eating any time of day.
We typically share a cocktail on our weekly menu, but this time around, we’re shaking things up. With spring in the air, it’s time for a fresh sip that just so happens to be a meal in itself. Just four ingredients make up this Tropical Green Smoothie, but dang, it’s delicious. You’ll blend pineapple, bananas, spinach, and orange juice for the quickest smoothie that’s also jam-packed with nutrients.
