Breakfast:
Mango Lime Smoothie

At 159 calories per serving, this rich-tasting smoothie fortified with yogurt and bananas is a winner. Feel free to substitute your favorite fruits or juices on hand.   

Lunch:
Roasted Tomato and Goat Cheese Tart 

This recipe takes advantage of the convenience of frozen puff pastry. Goat cheese has less cholesterol and fat than many other popular cheeses.

Dinner:
Ginger Tofu Stir-fry

Tofu takes some getting used to for some people, but it is packed with protein and low in fat. Some vegetarians weight down blocks of tofu overnight in a strainer over a bowl to get rid of some of the excess moisture and end up with a "meatier" product. This recipe calls for freezing tofu before using for a similar result. Experiment and you will likely find some ways to prepare this healthy meat-free ingredient.
