Dinner – (400 calories) Chicken breast with wild rice and fig pilaf (see next page for recipe) and a large green salad with 1 tablespoon of low-calorie dressing.

Breakfast – Crustless quiche with one sliced tomato
Lunch – Chicken-and-black-bean burrito
Snack – 10 raw cashews and 1 apple
Dinner – Pork chops, spaghetti squash

Breakfast – 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese with cinnamon and stevia on 1 piece whole-grain toast (Ezekiel bread is preferable)
