The Dietitian’s Meal Plan: October 20, 2014
Delete smoked turkey sausage and use vegetable broth for a vegetarian version
Double the pineapple salsa, and use it to top salads, tacos or grilled chicken.
Add extra vegetables (carrots, celery, mushrooms) to the Sloppy Joes and finely chop them for picky eaters. To limit calories and carbohydrates, serve open face on ½ bun, limit sweet potato fries to ½ cup.
Use the vegetables that you have on hand or that you prefer.
Super fast and delicious recipe but I usually sauté the onions first.
