1500 Calorie Sample Menu

A common misconception among those longing to lose weight is that you have to sacrifice flavor to cut calories. While it's true that red velvet cake with cream cheese icing is probably not the most suitable low-fat dessert option, it's not hard to find healthy alternatives that taste just as good. Just feast your eyes on this sample menu:

2 cranberry cornmeal pancakes
2 tsp almond butter
2 tsp maple syrup
1 poached egg

2 whole wheat tortillas
1 cup romaine lettuce
3/4 cup black beans
1/5 avocado, chopped
2 tablespoons salsa

15 almonds and/or cashews OR 4 tbsp hummus and 12 baby carrots OR
1 cup any non-fat yogurt

broiled swordfish OR broiled salmon
1 sweet potato OR
1 cup couscous
