One Week Healthy Eating Plan with Grocery List and Recipes

Number one request for many dietitians: “Just tell me what to eat.” There are a lot of reasons why this is a no-win situation. I don’t know all of your food likes and dislikes, and even if I did, I wouldn’t know everyone in your house’s food preferences. I don’t necessarily know what your food budget is and I don’t know what you’ll be doing on Wednesday evening or Sunday morning. I don’t know whether you’ll get your workout in on Thursday and can, therefore, afford an extra snack. I don’t know what your last cholesterol or TSH level was. Lastly, the fact that there are only 24 hours in a day and I sleep for seven of those would preclude me from being able to plan special menus for every person who requests one. However, I can tell you that a healthy menu might look something like the one below and I can give you a grocery list and recipes to work off of; with modification and flexibility, this backbone can be used to plan menus to fit a variety of tastes and lifestyles.
