SparkCoach - Meal Ideas

Sunday, February 03, 2013

SparkCoach has asked me to put together a list of meal ideas using the plate method of designing meals. For me, this looks like 1 quarter protein, 1 quarter starch, half fruits and vegetables, using a 8 or 9 inch plate, with a small source of dairy or non-dairy calcium on the side.

First I'd do a plate of sandwich fixings.. One slice of Italian bread (starch), 3 oz deli turkey (protein), 1 oz pepper jack cheese (dairy), 3 large leaves romaine lettuce, tomatoes, onion (vegetables) and 1c blueberries (fruit).

Second, a plate with corn (starch), tuna (protien), green beans (vegetable), pineapple (fruit), nonfat milk (dairy)

Third, around a crockpot meal (Wild Rice Hot Pot), wild rice (starch), chicken (protein), celery (vegetable), strawberries (fruit), ovaltine (dairy)

This is harder than it looks. I'll have to come back to it.
