Light Father's Day Recipes

Healthy and delicious dishes for the men in your life

6. Chicken Cacciatore With Broccoli by Judith Finlayson

This is a good dish to pull out for a more low-key, relaxing Father's Day dinner. It definitely meets the healthy recipe criteria, as it is bursting at the seams with protein, as well as being a good source of potassium. Broccoli is a fantastic source of vitamins C and K. Vitamin K is great for maintaining bone and heart health, and vitamin C gives your immune system a helping hand.

Looking for a more extravagant dish for Father's Day? This will surely impress with its hearty, complex flavors, while filling your house with its mouthwatering aroma. Serve with a salad to get some bonus veggies in the meal. Per serving: 409 calories, 15 g fat, 46 g protein, 3 g fiber

8. Assorted Grilled Vegetable Platter by Diane Rossen Worthington

This dish would be a colorful addition to any lunch or dinner. Feel free to serve it with any of the dishes listed here for a healthful flavor boost to your Father's Day meal.
