I found most of this week’s recipes in the January 2015 edition of Cooking Light. You can find more healthy recipes at Cooking Light 31-Day Healthy Meal Plans.
Meal 1: Portobello Burger with Pesto, Provolone and Red Peppers, Salad
Serve open faced or without the bun to reduce calories and carbohydrates.
The children and picky eaters will probably like the roasted grapes even if they don’t care for other ingredients in the salad.
Meal 3: Peppery Shrimp, Grits and Greens
A slightly healthier version of a comfort food classic with only 10 ingredients!
Meal 4: Chicken Avocado Salad served with Fruit
You could also substitute brown rice or quinoa in place of the bulgur.
Meal 5: Seared Sirloin Steak Bites with Miso Butter Rice served with Asparagus
You can purchase miso at Whole Foods grocery store or other health food stores.
