Warm Pistachio, Chicken, and Hearts of Palm Salad
Serves 6 / Dates and a curry-spiced dressing lend North African flair to this tasty dish. Serve over a bed of greens or scoop up with warm flatbread. Leftovers make a fantastic sandwich filling. View recipe

Almond-Tofu Veggie Burgers
Serves 4 / Serve these moist, protein-packed burgers with sprouts, avocado, and sliced tomato. Toast almonds in the oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, or purchase already toasted. View recipe

Walnut-Basil Pesto with Penne
Serves 4 / This simple, less-expensive pesto uses walnuts, rich in anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids. Be sure they are very fresh; older walnuts can taste bitter. Processing the basil and cheese separately helps each chop more finely and evenly. For even more nutrients, add small broccoli florets to the pasta water 2 minutes before pasta is done. View recipe
