I don’t know what to make for dinner!
Do you ever find yourself saying this? End the uncertainty with our healthy suggestions.
1. Treat yourself to breakfast foods at other meals, such as whole-grain cereal with dried or fresh fruit and low-fat milk or yogurt.
2. Have a salad or sandwich night.
3. For a 1-dish meal that serves 2, try this no-fail, mix-and-match dinner, using 1 cup of each type of ingredient:
- Cooked chicken, turkey or beef
- Barley, rice or diced potatoes
- Steamed, canned or leftover vegetables
- Tomato sauce or low-fat cream soup
Put your picks in a skillet and simmer until mixture becomes bubbly.
