6. Hot Tuna Salad

Tuna steaks are a wonderful source of protein, and serving them as Oliver suggests — seared atop a bed of asparagus or green beans, with cherry tomatoes and basil — is colorful and elegant.

Per serving: 367 calories, 5g saturated fat, 5g carbohydrates, 41g protein, 2g fiber, 642mg sodium

7. Meatballs and Pasta

Fresh rosemary flavors the meatballs and red chili adds a bit of a kick to Oliver's sauce. Making the meatballs small ensures that they cook more thoroughly and get distributed evenly through the pasta.

Per serving: 596 calories, 6g saturated fat, 68g carbohydrates, 27g protein, 5g fiber, 177mg sodium

8. Chicken Salad

Oliver takes this comforting lunch classic up a notch, poaching chicken with peppercorns and bay leaves, then adding cumin seeds and toasted almonds. Rather than using all mayonnaise for the dressing, this healthier version includes yogurt as well.

Per serving: 305 calories, 3g saturated fat, 8g carbohydrates, 31g protein, 2g fiber, 166mg sodium

9. Cod, Potato and Spring Onion Stew

This Icelandic- and Danish-inspired creamy stew is just right for late winter and the beginning of spring. Oliver suggests substituting hake, bass or halibut for cod if you like.

Per serving: 513 calories, 4g saturated fat, 45g carbohydrates, 40g protein, 6g fiber, 604mg sodium

10. Pukka Pineapple With Bashed-Up Mint Sugar

Fruit for dessert is anything but boring in this recipe, which is impressive to put together at the table by combining fresh mint and sugar with a mortar and pestle, then sprinkling it over thinly sliced pineapple.

Per serving: 164 calories, 0g saturated fat, 43g carbohydrates, 1g protein, 4g fiber, 4mg sodium
