Breakfast

About 400 calories (choose one daily)

Open-Faced Caprese Omlet
Bulk up your omelet with veggies and cut back on the eggs and cheese to net an almost 200-calorie save.

Whisk together 2 large eggs; gently cook on medium-low heat in 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil to make an open-faced omelet. Top evenly with 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese during cooking. Slide omelet onto a plate, and top with 1 sliced medium vine-ripened tomato. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar, sprinkle with sea salt to taste, and garnish with 8 fresh basil leaves.

Lunch and Dinner

About 400 calories (choose two daily)

Turkey Cheeseburger With Guacamole
This stacked burger is piled high with veggies and is half the calories of a regular one.

Grill or pan-grill 1 small (3-ounce, about 93% lean) ground turkey patty; sprinkle with salt and black pepper to taste. Serve on 1 grilled whole-grain bun smeared with 1 1/2 table-spoons guacamole and topped with a 3/4-ounce slice of sharp cheddar cheese, 2 large red onion slices, 3 large heirloom or beefsteak tomato slices, and 2/3 cup packed baby salad greens. Serve burger with an additional cup packed extra baby greens, splashed with champagne vinegar.

Snacks

About 150 calories (choose one daily)

Endive Boats With Baba Ganoush
Swap potato chips and French onion dip for this refreshing and low-cal snack.

Fill spears from 1 head Belgian endive with 2 tablespoons store-bought all-natural baba ganoush. Garnish with fresh parsley.

Free anytime snack
2 cups raw (or 1 cup cooked) veggies; season with ground black pepper and sea salt to taste.
