Getting healthy entails more than saying no to those donuts at your morning meeting and hitting the gym four days a week (although that helps). It also means making sure your diet is abundant in superfoods—Mother Nature’s powerhouse crops.
Here's the idea: Grab some produce, seasoning, and perhaps some protein, throw it on a sheet tray and roast until golden and tender, then mash it up into a rustic, warming soup. A couple weeks ago I wrote about a beet and potato borscht soup that fit that model; this variation on the butternut squash soup does as well. Roasting adds a depth of flavor that simmering will never provide, and it also makes for a low-fuss dinner that tastes like it took a lot more effort than it did.

I've had it on my mind to turn my popular Banging Good Shrimp recipe into a summer dish you can make right on the grill.
Zesty lime juice and cilantro are the key ingredients to creating this light and refreshing salad, no heavy mayonnaise to weigh it down. Made with the freshest ingredients; jumbo shrimp, avocados, tomatoes, red onion, cilantro and chopped jalapeño tossed with some freshly squeezed lime juice and a touch of olive oil.
Avocados, chicken, scallions and cilantro in a light broth with a touch of lime. If you are an avocado lover like me, you'll love this soup. This is easy to prepare, just have all your ingredients diced and chopped before you start.
