Tuna, Bean and Escarole Salad

Need a quick pick-me-up meal? Our Tuna, Bean, and Escarole Salad will help you feel full and energized, and it takes just a few minutes to put together. Canned tuna has lots of vitamin D and is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, including eicosapentaenoic acids (EPAs) and docosahexaenoic acids (DHAs), which are thought to help boost mood. Cannellini beans provide fiber, protein, and iron, and they’re one of the best nutritional sources of potassium. And escarole offers crunch, along with plenty of nutrients.

Butternut Squash-Kale Hash

Our Butternut Squash-Kale Hash recipe can be your new perfect food Instagram picture. Before pouring your at-home mimosa, grab the easy ingredients: a few vegetables, four eggs, and some spices. Squash is not only versatile, but it’s also earned its superfood title thanks to high levels of vitamins A and C, fiber, folate, and potassium. This tasty vegetable is low in calories too.
