Our quick and easy recipes are ideal meal options for families and individuals during busy weekdays. MyPlate recommends varying protein food choices, avoiding redundancy, and providing an array of nutritional values for your body, making these dishes (which include seafood, chicken, lamb, and more) perfect for a healthy diet.

First up is our Prosciutto, Peach, and Sweet Lettuce Salad. Serve this light main-course salad with a piece of crusty baguette for a delicious dish. Choose ripe, juicy peaches, and leave the peel on for more texture.
