Breakfast:
Fruit Smoothie

You can't go wrong with bananas, mangos and coconut milk (look for low-fat coconut milk). Chef Jamie Oliver adds a pinch of cardamom for a new twist on this refreshing breakfast smoothie.

Lunch:
Avocado and Tomato Sandwich on 7-Grain

A light drizzle of salad dressings are delicious on sandwiches, as well as salads. Especially vegetarian sandwiches like this one, which calls for a bit of Russian dressing to give it extra punch. If you prefer something like a low-fat ranch, try that.

Dinner:
Tamara's Ratatouille 

A hint of fall is in the air now in some parts of the country as the temperatures are beginning to cool, especially in the evenings. Zucchini, eggplant, peppers, potatoes head the list of hearty vegetables in this delicious recipe ready to warm you from the inside out.
