The Dietitian’s Meal Plan for the Week of November 15, 2021

Meal One

Baked Cod with Chorizo and White Beans, Green Beans, Roasted Potatoes

Use fully cooked Spanish-style chorizo or substitute turkey kielbasa. For sustainably fished cod, choose U.S. Pacific cod or Atlantic cod from Iceland and the northeast Arctic. For more information, visit Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch at

Meal Two

Chopped Greek Salad with Chicken

Feel free to substitute other chopped fresh vegetables, such as broccoli or bell peppers, for the tomatoes or cucumber. Use leftover chicken, store-roasted chicken or quickly poach a couple boneless, skinless chicken breasts while you prepare
the rest of the salad.

Meal Three

Slow Cooker Vegetarian Pasta Fagioli Soup, Salad, Whole Grain Bread

Pasta, beans, and hearty veggies mingle with a tasty Italian-seasoned broth for a simple and healthy soup. Use whole grain pasta and add cooked ground beef or ground turkey for carnivores.

Meal Four

Five Spice Turkey Lettuce Wraps, Carrot and Red Pepper Strips, Fruit

Based on a popular Chinese dish, these fun wraps also make appealing appetizers for entertaining.

Meal Five

Maple Salmon, Sweet Potatoes, Broccoli

One of our all-time favorite recipes!
It is so simple, you will not need the recipe the second time that you make it.
