More than 700 online reviewers gave this classic entrée five stars on southbeachdiet.com. You’ll love the flavor; we love that it has 17 grams of keep-you-full protein, 10 grams of heart-healthy fat and just 210 calories.
While your family members are diving into value meals with 1,500 calories and 40 grams of fat, you’ll be eating this flavorful, lean entrée (180 calories; 9 grams of fat) with buttery artichokes, iron-rich spinach and a blend of gooey Swiss, American and Parmesan cheeses.
You’ve certainly had that other mushroom soup—you know, the kind that’s strangely congealed with barely any mushrooms. But this one is different. It’s creamy, it’s flavorful, it’s healthy.
“Ice cream” for dinner! Okay, it’s close—especially if you have a blender handy and can mix this with ice. We suggest this shake for dinner, but we won’t tell if you have it for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner. Did we mention it has 15 grams of protein and 4 grams of dietary fiber? Talk about satisfying!
This. Just this (from one online reviewer): “Being a lifelong Texan, I have very high standards when it comes to chili. Texas chili means beef and no beans. Wow, what a surprise this little can of goodness was. A couple dashes of Tabasco, and I was one happy camper!”
For those of you who used to grab Indian, Thai, Spanish or maybe even Moroccan food for lunch, this ethnic soup is for you. Serve as is or atop some cauliflower rice to make it last with you all afternoon—at least till snack time!
Did you have the Moroccan-Inspired Chickpea Stew yesterday? Then “come home” to some good old-fashioned comfort food today. This entrée, too, can be stored right in your desk drawer but can instantly become fresh with a pinch of pepper or paprika and some fresh parsley.
Not a big veggie fan? Here’s your chance to eat spaghetti squash or zucchini ribbons with pleasure. Go ahead and stock up on these meatballs because you’ll want more tomorrow and the day after. As for the keep-you-full-power? These meatballs rock: They’ve got 5 grams of dietary fiber, 17 grams of protein and 13 grams of healthy fat.
One online reviewer gave this entrée five stars and wrote: “It feels like cheating when I eat this because it tastes so good—just like the one I grew up eating!” The chicken and white beans make this dish quite filling (5 grams of dietary fiber and 18 grams of protein). But, why not add more veggies if you’re home for dinner? Think sautéed onions and peppers. Or, serve with a side salad.
More than 250 online reviewers gave our Italian-Style Sausage & Peppers five stars amongst our delicious dinner options. One of those reviewers said it’s delicious. “Would never guess it was made with chicken,” they wrote. This flavorful entrée has just 220 calories and 9 grams of fat because the sausage is made with lean chicken.
You can never have too much sauce—especially since you’re encouraged to add veggies to your meals to round out your diet. So you pick the veggie. Artichoke hearts, collard greens, mushrooms or bell peppers are our first choices. For a twist, make a cauliflower crust pizza. You’ve got the sauce and chicken. Just add some cheese and you’re good to go!
