Instead of using ground beef, opt for ground turkey, diced carrots, onion, and celery, breadcrumbs, eggs, and seasonings. When it’s almost ready to come out of the oven, sauté fresh spinach with shiitake mushrooms and minced garlic in grapeseed oil, and microwave a sweet potato (or just bake with the loaf). Enjoy the three dishes together—and you’ll get a healthy serving of beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin, vitamins C and E, selenium, and zinc.
