The Dietitian’s Meal Plan for the Week of November 22, 2021

Meal One

Healthy Chili

Use ground turkey breast instead of beef (less fat & calories), cumin, coriander and cayenne instead of chili powder(less sodium) and reduced sodium beans.

Meal Two

Rotisserie Chicken, Baked Sweet Potatoes, Steamed Broccoli

Pick up a rotisserie chicken from your favorite supermarket on the way home. Microwave the sweet potatoes and broccoli for a super fast meal.

Meal Three

Breakfast for Dinner

Prepare your favorite egg dish (scrambled, omelet, over easy, frittata) and serve with whole grain toast and fruit. Try a frittata with whatever veggies and cheese that you have on hand.

Meal Four

Thanksgiving for a Small Group

Thanksgiving is all about traditions but if you are cooking for a smaller group this year, keep it simple by using your Air Fryer for the turkey, serving an appetizer that doubles as a side dish and dessert .and buying a few store bought items.

Sweet Potato Bites
Air Fryer Turkey Breast
Apple and Onion Stuffin Muffins
Holiday Roasted Vegetables

Pies (from your favorite supermarket)

Meal Five

Thanksgiving Leftovers Shepherd’s Pie

Next-day leftovers can be enjoyed all at once when combined in a delicious take on shepherd’s pie. To bake individual pies, use six ten-ounce ramekins, and reduce cooking time twenty to thirty minutes.
