Moderate carb intake, lots of protein and fiber-rich fruits and veggies like carrots and beans help you to feel full without upping your calorie count. And since some research has linked chronic inflammation to weight gain, the dishes in this meal plan are packed with foods that possess anti-inflammatory properties, ranging from the omega-3 fatty acids in trout to the antioxidants in fruits and veggies like peppers and raspberries. 

This plan is also rich in fiber, containing at least 25 g per day, which helps feed good bacteria in your gut while helping you feel satiated.

Just because you’re trying to lose weight, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice flavor. This meal plan is nutritious and delicious, and at less than 1400 calories a day it helps keep your weight loss on track.

This four-ingredient dressing adds a nutty, sesame flavor to this colorful salad. If you prefer, you can easily substitute the peanut butter with almond or cashew butter. Get the recipe here.

Spanish Chickpea & Red Bell Pepper Soup

No-Sugar Raspberry Almond Loaf

No-Sugar Added Raspberry Almond Loaf
(Ashley Capp)

This flavorful loaf is sweetened with dates and granulated monk fruit, the latter of which is derived from a fruit native to Southeast Asia that’s 100 times sweeter than granulated sugar. It’s low-glycemic and works beautifully in baking recipes. Get the recipe here.

Trout with Green Bean Succotash

Succotash really came into its own during the Great Depression, thanks to its thrifty nature, and we think a clean version seasoned with dill, lemon juice and zest is the perfect accompaniment to our tender pink trout. Get the recipe here.
