While your spring-cleaning checklist may include clearing out your basement, washing down windows and shampooing a carpet or two, you may want to add cleaning out your pantry and trying a new meal plan to the list. A slew of fresh, seasonal and refreshingly light menu options can help you snap out of that cold-weather funk and embrace the sunnier and longer days ahead. Most of the following 70 mini meals emphasize low-calorie and nutrient-dense foods such as apples, papaya, pineapple, carrots and celery. By incorporating a bevy of the produce popping up at grocery stores and farmers’ markets this time of year, you’ll not only add color, flavor and texture to your meals, but you’ll also get a healthy dose of vitamins, minerals and fiber.

We’ve also scattered nuts, seeds and nut butters throughout the next two weeks because they fill you up while providing you with plenty of plant protein, dietary fiber and heart-healthy mono- and polyunsaturated fats. But, how much should you eat? One small handful of nuts, about an ounce, contains between 160 and 200 calories and is the perfect between-meal snack, particularly if you’re on the go. To prevent you from going overboard though, pre-portion your nuts in one-ounce packages once you’re home from the supermarket!
