Juicy pork chops, fresh fish, and hearty quinoa are just some of the delicious, protein-packed foods in this week's meal plan.

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommends women get 46 grams of protein daily (that’s equal to about 6 ounces of chicken), while men need 56 grams.

This 7-day meal plan makes it easier to get your fill of fiber with delicious, satisfying dinners that provide at least 8 grams of fiber per serving.
Incorporating more plant-based foods into your diet is a great way to boost your health.
