More Low-Cal & Luscious Easy Diet Dinners : Week 5
Sunday Dinner: Beef And Broccolini Stir-Fry
With only one tablespoon of oil for cooking, this stir-fry holds the line on fat and calories, but there's nothing tame about the ginger-teriyaki taste.
Monday Dinner: Lite Fettuccine Alfredo
Figure-friendly fixings such as skim milk and Neufchâtel cream cheese turn an often heavy classic into Lite Fettuccine Alfredo.
Tuesday Dinner: Turkey Roulade With Roasted Sweet Potatoes
Roasted sweet potatoes are a colorful complement to Turkey Roulade, a boneless breast rolled around a curried stuffing of fruit and vegetables.
Wednesday Dinner: Pork Chops with Green Peppercorn Sauce
Green peppercorns, shallots and garlic infuse distinctive flavor, while fat-free half-and-half adds lushness. Serve with cooked egg noodles and steamed spinach, and you're well within your calorie goal.
Thursday Dinner: Grilled Swordfish in Lime-Ginger Marinade
Fire up the grill and try swordfish instead of the usual chicken or beef. Our ginger-lime marinade balances nicely with the hint of smoke from the grilling.
Friday Dinner: Asian Warm Chicken Slaw
This supremely satisfying salad, mixes sauteed snow peas and red pepper strips with ready-shredded cabbage. Sprinklings of scallions and toasted almonds go well with the sesame, soy and other seasonings.
Saturday Dinner: Sliced Steak Diane
The sauce for this classic is usually a lush affair made with heavy cream — not an option for those watching their weight. In our version we ditch the fat-laden cream and substitute beef broth thickened with cornstarch and end up with a hearty 324-calorie meal that includes roasted potatoes and green beans, too.
