Whole wheat pita stuffed with Curried Tempeh Waldorf Salad and watercress

Curried Tempeh Waldorf Salad

Tempeh stands in for chicken in this fruit- and nut-studded salad. Look for a 100% whole wheat pita that has between 70 and 90 calories per serving (either a mini pita or half of a large one).

Makes 3 servings


8 oz tempeh

½ cup water

⅜ cup vegan mayonnaise or light mayo

1 tsp tamari

1 tbsp curry powder

1 apple, cored and diced

¼ cup chopped cashews

2 stalks celery, diced

2 tbsp golden raisins

3 cups watercress

1½ 100% whole wheat pitas, cut in half


1. Place tempeh in a microwave-safe bowl and drizzle with water. Cover with a lid and microwave 5 minutes. Drain water and break apart tempeh with a fork. Tempeh should be chunky or crumbly.

2. In a separate bowl, mix mayo, tamari, and curry powder. Add tempeh, apple, cashews, celery, and raisins and mix. Pile into pita halves with watercress.

Pack a Snack

Use snacks to fill nutritional gaps in your main meals (hint: that usually means fruits and vegetables), Weisenberger says.

Here are some of her favorite snacks:

  • Cottage cheese with diced tomatoes, basil, and black pepper.
  • Portobello pizza: Take a large mushroom, clean it, then fill with tomato sauce and low-fat cheese. Roast in the oven 20 minutes.
  • Apple and peanut butter: The classic combo delivers fiber plus protein and fat -- a winning combination to curb hunger.
  • Edamame and nuts
  • V-8 juice: It takes the edge off your hunger while prepping a meal. Make your own reduced-sodium V-8 by blending the regular juice with the no-salt-added variety.


Find a few great one-pot recipes that are heavy on veggies to add to your repertoire. Then cook a big batch when you have time and freeze it for a quick weeknight meal. A serving of this soup (about two cups) is very filling.
