I love banana nut bread. This healthy recipe has a few more calories than most of the muffins or breads recipes that are on the Dr. Gourmet website, but a lot less fat and sugar than most recipes out there. Even so, a lot of those calories are from monounsaturated fats in the pecans. Best of all? You get 15% of the daily fiber you need.
No other meal plan includes making extra for lunches and leftovers later in the week. This is truly a meal plan for the Real World! Recipes include Fettuccine Alfredo, Shrimp Fried Rice, and Taco Salad.
