Complement your meal with apple cider. Look for one with 100% apple juice; it contains as many phytonutrients as apples do.

Steak-and-Potatoes Menu (Serves 6)

Cooler weather invites you to get out and grill. Entice everyone to the table with lean Spice-Rubbed Flank Steak and Green Beans With Bacon. Add a side of power-packed Grilled Sweet Potatoes With Creamy Basil Vinaigrette.

You can even prepare some of these great-tasting recipes in advance, which makes this menu practical enough to serve at any weeknight or weekend gathering. Don't forget dessert: Whole Grain Marshmallow Crispy Bars are sweetly nutritious.
