It’s pretty easy to eat healthy foods in the summer; so many fresh fruits and vegetables are readily available. Restaurants go out of their way to create menus that reflect lighter eating. But, this is the time of year when salads for lunch is a hard sell (who wants to eat a cold salad on a cold day? Yeah, I’ll have soup, please).

Casseroles give you a great reason to use the oven you tried to avoid all summer. With a few substitutions, almost any casserole can be healthy and balanced. For instance, with a breakfast casserole, use egg whites instead of the whole egg and whole wheat bread instead of white bread. Turkey sausage can be used instead of pork sausage. Don’t forget the vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers, and spinach that will round out the casserole.

We want to hear about your favorite, healthy fall meals. Share your thoughts below.
