When you start talking about light and healthy meals suddenly everyone starts in on the salads. Well ya know what? I'm tired of salads and I want to eat food that isn't just for rabbits. Here instead are a few light meal options that aren't just made from lettuce!

1. Lighter Stuffed Pasta Shells
2. Quick Udon Noodle Soup
3. Vegetable Lasagna with Butternut Béchamel
4. Oven Roasted Squid
5. Slow-Cooked Tomato and Herb White Beans
6. Black Bean, Sweet Potato, and Quinoa Chili
7. Black Rice Salad with Avocado and Grapefruit
