Simple Kaniwa Salad
Kaniwa is an ancient red grain from South America that is gluten-free and vegan-friendly. It is loaded with amino acids, iron, protein, fiber and cancer-fighting flavonoids. “This is the sweeter, smaller, nuttier cousin to quinoa,” Sascha says.
Makes 4-6 servings.
Oven-Baked Barramundi with Mango Salsa
Fans of sea bass will love this low-calorie, white-fleshed fish. “Barramundi has zero mercury, which sea bass has in abundance,” Sascha says. “It has that nice, mild, meaty taste to it [and] lots of omega-3, heart-healthy fatty acids.”
Makes 2-3 servings.
"Zoodles" with Marinara
Zucchini noodles are a nutritious alternative to traditional pasta. Rich in vitamins A and C, zucchini is also packed with potassium, which can help control blood pressure to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.
“Zucchini noodles have 90 percent fewer calories than whole wheat noodles,” Sascha adds.
Makes 4 servings.
