Meal idea

It feels good to eat well (and healthy)
Eating healthy foods and a balanced diet is part of living well. Below is a sample meal plan. If you need a specific meal plan, ask if that is part of your package plan.
1 egg
1 banana
2 pieces of toast
2 tsp of fruit jelly
1 tsp of margarine
Breakfast is sometimes the most difficult meal to eat, especially if you are a busy person. Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. It helps to jump start the metabolism and help fuel the body for the day.
2 oz of turkey
1 slice of tomato
2 slices whole grain bread
1/2 cup of mandarin oranges
1 cup of raw carrots
1 tablespoon of ranch dressing
Water with lemon
Lunch can easily be made into a grab and go meal. It is just a matter of adapting the foods so they are easy to pack. Prepackaging foods can make this easier if time is an issue or by packing the lunch meal the night before.
Lean meat or chicken
1 cup green beans
3 red potatoes with sprig of parsley
1 cup of blueberries
1 cup lowfat yogurt
Plan dinner with the division of the plate. 1/2 veggies, 1/4 starchy food, and 1/4 protein. Some fruit and dairy to the side to complete the meal.
