1. Taco Zucchini Boats

6. Chicken Parmesan

Chicken Parmesan is a classic dish. Healthy doesn't always have to be chicken breast with a side salad, it can also be having that one cheesy meal that you love.

7. Simple Cauliflower 

It's a fact (we think) that broccoli will always be the top dog when it comes to small tree looking vegetables, but cauliflower is not to be surpassed! This simple cauliflower recipe is perfect to whip up mid-week and might even change your mind about the beige vegetable!
