Full of comfort-food flavors without the carbs, this recipe might just be your new go-to for a healthy, easy weeknight dinner. All you need is a skillet and about 20 minutes. You can use traditional coleslaw mix or swap out for broccoli slaw. If you want to stay gluten-free, use coconut aminos in place of traditional soy sauce.

Pancakes are a perfect on-the-go breakfast. Make your own to save money and be sure you and your family are getting the best ingredients possible.
Here are two pancake options that are delicious, high in protein, and can be made ahead and frozen for busy mornings. They are tasty enough to eat plain, but if you crave something sweet you can top with whip cream or drizzle with organic berries. Better yet, use organic peanut butter (or nut butter of your choice) for an extra protein boost.
