Shake up your meatloaf routine by making this simple turkey version. Serve with mashed potatoes and a salad. A little-known fact about turkey- compared to other meats, it is a pretty good source of calcium. Pound for pound, ground turkey is also lower in overall fat and saturated fat than ground chicken.

Roasted Tomato Soup with Cheesy Flatbread
Roasting tomatoes is a perfect use for over-ripe tomatoes that are too mushy to use any other way. You can use roasted tomatoes in a sandwich, in a pasta dish, or as here, in a home-made tomato soup. You can use smoked paprika in this soup, if you’d like. Tomatoes are a wonderful source of the anti-oxidant lycopene.
Easy Egg Fried Rice
If your family loves fried rice at your local Chinese restaurant, try this easy at-home version. With egg and bacon, this is a main course, but if you’d like you can serve smaller portions as a side dish.
Loaded Baked Potato
Fat free Greek yogurt replaces the sour cream typically found in a loaded baked potato. Packed with cheese and turkey bacon, this side dish will complement any entree; or serve it as a hearty lunch all on its own.
Mumbai Mango Melt
Choose a mango that yields to slight pressure and is fragrant. If you like a bit of spice, spread buns with a little Indian pickle before filling.
The Parisian Melt
Our twist on a croque madame, this grilled turkey and cheese sandwich has apple for added crunch. Add a crisp green salad to round out the meal.
Rotisserie Chicken and Cranberry Sandwiches
Leftover chicken and cranberry sauce are meant for each other. Using whole wheat tortillas bumps up the fibre.

Turkey on the Round Sandwich
You can serve this easy-to-pack sandwich to the kids and yourself. If packing in a lunch box, add an ice pack to keep sandwich chilled.
