Dinner Recipes 8/20-8/26

Here is another week of recipes that I will be using for my family dinners. I hope you find at least one that you like. If you ever have any low-calorie recipes that you can recommend then I would love for you to share them with me on my blog or facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/ShawnaLemmonPersonalTrainer. ENJOY!!!

Monday - Balsalmic-Glazed Chicken and Bell Pepper Sandwiches (**I will probably use 100-calorie sandwich thins to reduce the carbs and calories that are found in focaccia)

Tuesday - Mediterranean Chicken Couscous from Southern Living; Near East makes the couscous that is called for in this recipe.

Wednesday - Warm-Tortellini Salad and Cherry Tomatoes; I don't use onions but do add asparagus and sometimes red and green peppers. Any veggies you like are great with this recipe!

Thursday - Southwestern Style Shrimp Tacos

Friday - Double Bean Burritos; A great tortilla to get is the low-carb, high fiber tortilla made by LaTortilla Factory. It only has 80 calories per wrap and they are HUGE! I also make this without the bean dip only because its not something I use a lot of so it will usually go bad before I have the chance to use it again.

Saturday - Luscious Lean Burgers; I will end up using the 100-calorie sandwich thins for this also.  My side will be raw veggies or a salad.

Sunday - Shepard's Pie Lightened-up

All of my recipes are from low calorie sources so, as long as you are staying within the portion size recommendations, you don't have to worry about ruining your waistline. If any of you have any recipes you would like to share with me then I would love for you to leave a link to that recipe on my blog. I am always open for suggestions and love to try new recipes!
