Serving Ideas

  • Casseroles (made with tomato-based sauces, whole grains, lean proteins and minimal cheese) are an excellent way to pull all the food groups into a healthy package. Make them on the weekend – it takes less than an hour, and they can be either refrigerated or frozen for later in the week.
  • Stir fries served over brown rice are also an excellent “one pan” meal – any vegetables you wish (try for at least 3-4) tossed with some chicken pieces, firm tofu chunks, shrimp or lean beef strips cook up quickly, and there are several low-calorie, low-fat and low-sodium sauce options to choose from!
  • Have an easy, no-fuss breakfast on-the-go – toss 1 cup of frozen blueberries, ½ cup frozen strawberries, ½ cup skim milk, 1 tbsp oat bran and 4 oz of low-fat, silken tofu in a blender, process until smooth and drink!
