Black beans, broccoli & brown rice

“Put them all in a pan with a little olive oil and herbs of your choice, and you’ve got a healthy, balanced, and delicious dinner within a few minutes.”
Kristin Kirkpatrick, M.S., R.D., a wellness manager at the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute

Produce leftovers

“Toss together whatever hidden produce and leftovers in your fridge, hearty green salad with avocado, protein leftovers—whether it be beans, quinoa, or chicken—tomatoes, and whatever else is around. That could be olives, artichoke hearts, etc. Go for a splash of oil and balsamic vinegar to tie it all together. It’s amazing what you can find when everything is fair game.”
Keri Glassman, R.D., a Women’s Health contributor

Whole-grain waffle & peanut butter or cereal & fruit

“Heat up a whole-grain waffle, topping with peanut butter, and dumping on some blueberries. Or enjoy a big bowl of whole-grain cereal with low-fat milk and fruit. Easy and no fuss!”
Joy Bauer, M.S., R.D., the nutrition and health expert for NBC’s TODAY Show and founder of NourishSnacks

Fish & veggies

“A super-quick fish and veggies dish: Sear a filet of fish— for example, a chunky piece of black cod—skin-side down. Then scatter your favorite veggies around the filet. It’s ridiculously easy, quick, and is a great source of protein, healthy fats, and vegetables.”
Michelle Davenport, Ph.D., R.D., a Silicon Valley nutritionist

Caprese sandwich

“Half of a whole-wheat sandwich thin with melted fresh mozzarella, tomato, balsamic vinegar, avocado, basil, and a little sea salt.”
Mitzi Dulan, R.D., author of The Pinterest Diet

A wrap

“Throw together deli turkey or chicken, salad greens, and spicy mustard. Done!”
Shelly Marie Redmond, R.D.

Eggs / Hummus

“They are so easy to whip up and are packed full of nutrients. You can toss in some baby greens and even add cooked grains or beans. Hummus and veggies or rice thins is another favorite.”
Katie Cavuto, M.S., R.D., the dietician for the Phillies and the Flyers
