The Dietitian’s Meal Plan for the Week of May 31, 2021

Summer Veggie Salad,
Green Onion and Dill Quinoa

If meatless Monday is part of your weekly menu, try Summer Veggie Salad. Pine nuts and Manchego cheese add protein to the salad. You can swap in less-expensive walnuts and Parmesan, if desired.

Meal Two

Grilled Flank Steak,
Grilled Corn on the Cob, Broccoli

Flank steak is leaner and more affordable than other cuts of red meat. Before serving, always slice against the grain to avoid chewy texture. Also, be sure to allow the meat to rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing. Use leftover steak in salads or sandwiches for lunches.
