This is great as a main dish, or as an appetizer to share. Your guests will think you spent hours in the kitchen with all the complex flavors. And there are veggies added in, which make this a superstar dish in our minds. If serving as a main dish, this pairs great over zoodles, quinoa, cauli rice or brown rice.

This recipe will take you to the Carribbean. Turn up some calypso or reggae and enjoy making these yummy coconut shrimp! The outer coconut crispy coating is a total treat and then we've put together a nutrient packed Thai inspired sauce to use as a dip or a sauce. It's a match made in food (or belly) heaven! Work to chop and prep all your ingredients for sauce before starting it to starting it up. We call for a blender or using your immersion blender for it. If you want your sauce thinner, you can always add in a little water to water it out or enjoy it thick as a dip like our photo.
This recipe was shared by one of our VFit Squad favorite cooks. It's simple to make, full of flavor and will please everyone. Mushrooms add such a nice earthy flavor and using chicken thighs brings on the moisture! The recipe was adopted from the Everyday Paleo cookbook.
This is hands down one of the best pizza's out there. Great flavor and you can get creative with toppings and sauces.
This robust marinara sauce has no added sugars or unhealthy oils. It is flavored by fresh vegetables and herbs. Great for any Italian dish. Jazz it up by adding ground meat or loading up with extra veggies on hand. Consider making a large batch and freezing the extra to have on hand.
Step up your grill game beyond burgers and wow the crowd with this tasty Grilled Chicken Bruschetta! Trust us, you won't even miss the bread, we promise. Flavors literally BURST at the seam here, and with breasts being marinated, this recipe yields delicious and moist breast meat. We love keeping this simple and rounding out the meal with some quickly wilted fresh spinach and cauli rice.
Who doesn't love the color green in their food? This bowl is PACKED with nutrients and will keep you energized to tackle your busiest days. Feel free to get creative with this meal and add any source of protein you have on hand.
This is a great appetizer to bring to a party and impress your friends. Mushrooms are a great source of protein, fiber, vitamins B and C, calcium, and minerals. Also, this appetizer looks and taste fancy, yet are so simple to prepare. You can get creative with the filling too and try different spice blends!
You may see the title of this and think to yourself, "wow, these guys love their zoodles" -- and you're definitely on to us! But let's be honest...zoodles are amazing. They're nutritious (they are, after all, a veggie), they're easy, there's no boiling required, they have an awesome texture, and they're the perfect little vehicle for anything you'd ordinarily slap on some pasta...and then some. This is the recipe for the gal (or guy!) on the go - 20 minutes max start to finish, can be pre-made and these are equally delish eaten cold. Don't feel like cooking up meat? Rinse some white beans and throw them in the mix instead. In any case - this is a winner.
We want to keep this description short, because, well that picture says it all and we know you want to get right to cooking this specialty recipe! This is a top 10 fan favorite and has become a staple in many VFit Squad members homes. This is also a great way to use up any veggies you have on hand that are about to go bad, so think outside of the box on what to add in if you need to. This also makes for excellent leftovers and freezes well if you need to.
