500 Calorie Menu
These vegetarian recipes are packed with flavor.
Going meatless, even once a week, can have real health benefits, including weight loss and reduced risk for heart disease. Why? Plant-based foods, such as vegetables, beans and lentils, are low in saturated fat and full of fiber, which helps you feel satisfied on fewer calories.
In this 7-day meal plan, healthy 500-calorie dinners make their way to the table in 30 minutes or less. The key to these quick dinners is the combination of fast recipes and simple sides, and relying on healthy convenience items, like precooked grains and canned chickpeas, to cut down even more on cook time.
