The Dietitian’s Meal Plan for the Week of August 30, 2021

Meal One

Buffalo Chicken Burgers, Salad

If you like buffalo wings, you will love this burger! You can use store bought salad dressing rather than making the blue cheese ranch sauce.

Meal Two

Open Faced Egg Sandwiches with Mushrooms, Salad

Prepare plain egg and cheese sandwiches for the kids or picky eaters. Feel free to use regular onions and button mushrooms if that is what you have on hand.

Meal Three

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup, Fruit

The recipe calls for cooked chicken but feel free to use uncooked chicken breasts. If so, remove them toward the end of the cooking time and shred. You can buy tortilla chips to serve on the side instead of preparing them from scratch.

Meal Four

Pecan-Crusted Tilapia, Brown Rice, Green Beans

Substitute any flaky fish that you prefer and feel free to use other nuts such as pistachios or almonds. I prefer panko breadcrumbs instead or regular breadcrumbs because they produce a crispier crust.

Meal Five

Chicken Pot Pie Bundles, Steamed Broccoli, Fruit

Everybody loves chicken pot pie! It is my family’s most requested recipe. This version is healthier and faster than my traditional recipe.
