Are you always looking for quick, healthy ways to fuel your fast-moving athlete? Me too. Registered dietitian, Judy Caplan, has three great meal suggestions in the February issue of WashingtonFAMILY.com.
Meal 1: Stir fry chicken and veggies with toasted sesame oil. Add cooked rice. Serve with a romaine salad topped with avocado slices and drizzle with olive oil and vinegar.
Meal 2: Turkey Chili – make chili using ground turkey breast, pinto or black beans, diced tomatoes, and chili seasonings. Serve topped with grated cheese and avocado. Round it out with whole wheat quesadillas and salsa.
Meal 3: Pasta – To cooked pasta, add olive oil, diced garlic and stir fry in large pan. Add chicken broth and parsley. Spoon sauce over; top with grated Parmesan cheese. Serve with romaine salad topped with mandarin oranges, toasted pine nuts, and dried cranberries. Can also serve with red sauce and turkey meat balls (made from left over turkey from meal 2).
