You can bring new life to your leftovers or experiment using different grains, veggies, proteins and spices. Picky eaters will find their place at the table, too, as these recipes can be easily adapted to their taste buds by simply opting out or substituting ingredients.

Plan for contrast
Include something creamy (avocado or goat cheese) and something crunchy (chopped nuts or toasted sesame seeds). Or something hot and spicy (chicken), with something sweet and cold (mango, or chilled, cooked, sweet potato).
Stack on the veggies
Shoot for variety and quantity. Aim for at least two vegetables—they can be raw or cooked.
Finish with some zing
Include an option for something fiery (Sriracha or jalapeno peppers), pungent (garlic or ginger) or pickled (onions or beets).
