Miso-Marinated Tofu and Eggplant Over Soba Noodles
Say yes to tofu! Though this protein-rich soy product is naturally bland, it picks up on the rich flavors of the oils and spices in this dish. The Soba noodles, which are made from buckwheat, pump in over 6 grams of fiber and add a lovely texture to this miso-flavored entrée.

Balsamic-Marinated Steak With Charred Radicchio
Cut calories and cleanup time by using a cast-iron skillet - you'll hardly use any extra oil in this one-pot meal.
Mediterranean Turkey With Swiss Chard Over Polenta
We borrowed polenta from traditional northern Italian recipes and converted it to this Asian-inspired dish. Similar to spinach, Swiss chard is slightly saltier, but just as rich in iron, fiber, and vitamin K. Its flavor is perfect combined with the tart currants and the deep roasted flavor of pine nuts. Turkey provides plenty of lean protein that keeps this dish filling for under 300 calories.
