I recently discovered that I can order Buddakan to my doorstep with GrubHub’s assistance and, let me just say, it is a problem. And I’m not the only one cursed with an out-of-control delivery addiction: The other day, I was reading this piece on The Cut, where women dished on the stupidest things they waste money on. Spoiler alert: They pretty much all named the delivery service Seamless as their money suck of choice. Now, raise your hand if you’re in the same boat. Yeah, I thought so.

When you take stock of your kitchen and realize a nearly empty pantry or fridge is staring back at you, it’s time to get creative. I have two words for you: stuff it.

I’ve found that if you have a veggie and a handful of other things (beans, rice, other veggies, pasta, whatever), it is often very easy to stuff the veggie with said other things and call it dinner—a delicious dinner at that.

If you prefer to follow a recipe rather than winging it, here are five dinner recipes you can try this week—and one bonus dessert recipe, because duh—that involve stuffing one thing with another thing to create an all new (and, of course, delicious) concoction that just might make it into your regular rotation. Happy stuffing, friends.

I’ve professed my love for the one-bowl dinner before, but I will say it again: There is absolutely nothing better than throwing all your favorite veggies into one bowl, mixing them together—probably with some quinoa or brown rice—and calling it dinner. Am I right?

So for this week’s recipes, we’ve chosen five one-bowl dinners that are filled to the brim with fresh fall veggies like kale, sweet potatoes, winter squash, spinach, pumpkin, and more. I’ve got my sights set on the Pumpkin, Pistachio and Kale Fried Rice bowl—how about you?

Do you ever find yourself in a salad rut? I am constantly in a salad rut: I’ll discover a new salad that I’m obsessed with—most recently a white bean, tofu, spinach and pesto concoction—eat it for weeks on end, and then realize that, well, I’ve been eating the exact same salad every night for dinner for weeks on end.

We’ve hand-picked five creative and healthy salads chock-full of fall goodies like squash, pomegranate, kale, and sweet potato (which just so happens to be delicious and great for weight loss).

What to Eat This Week: 5 Creative Ways to Eat Kale

kale what to eat lead
Remember when everyone started to hate Anne Hathaway, just because she was everywhere, like, all the time? Well, if you ask me, kale is kind of the Anne Hathaway of greens: There’s nothing wrong with it—in fact, it’s great—but after years of being bombarded with kale everything, from kale caesar salads to kale smoothies to kale cocktails to kale nail polish, everyone experienced kale overload and started to kind of loathe the veggie, as great as it is.

But enough kale hating. Anne Hathaway came out of hiding from her Hathahaters (yep, people really call themselves that) this week, and with National Kale Day having just passed (it was last Wednesday), maybe it’s time we give kale another chance, too. I mean, it is in season, after all. For this week’s recipes, I’ve rounded up five delicious, kale-heavy dishes that you probably haven’t tried before—no plain ol’ sautéed kale here. Read up, pick a recipe and reignite your love affair with the superfood everyone loves to hate.
