Dietitians Diary Dinner

Dinner

  • 1 to 3 oz. baked salmon in teriyaki sauce
  • 1 cup steamed broccolini with a drizzle of olive oil, crushed garlic clove and pinch of salt
  • 1 cup baked sweet potato chips
  • 1 glass cucumber-lemon sparkling water
  • 1 to 4 oz. chardonnay

Broccolini is one of my favorite vegetables because it transforms with a simple olive oil drizzle, garlic and salt. And it’s full of cancer-fighting phytonutrients.
