The Dietitian’s Meal Plan for the Week of December 13, 2021

Meal One

Vegetarian Burrito Bowls

These easy, delicious veggie bowls can be
on your table in less time than it takes to drive
to the local taco joint.

Meal Two

Chicken Kale Quinoa Soup, Crusty Whole
Grain Bread

Kale and quinoa are both super foods loaded with nutrients! Rinse the quinoa to ensure that any bitter coating is removed.

Meal Three

One Pan Broccoli Bacon Mac-n-Cheese, Salad

Butternut squash puree enhances the color here without distracting from the cheesy flavor, and it sneaks in another serving of vegetables. If you can’t find frozen butternut puree, swap in an equal amount of mashed sweet potato or canned unsweetened pumpkin.

Meal Four

Spaghetti Squash with Meatballs, Salad

Cooking the squash first in the microwave and then in a skillet to cook off the extra moisture, gives the squash a more spaghetti-like texture.

Meal Five

Crispy Fish with Lemon Dill Sauce, Green Beans

Panko is the secret ingredient that makes these crispy,oven-fried fish fillets a family favorite.
The lemon-dill sauce is the perfect complement and great for dipping. For sustainability reasons,
be sure to choose Alaskan cod, or
substitute halibut or even tilapia.
