1. Sandwich Night

When you've had a busy day and want a simple supper, a sandwich is usually the item to fit the bill. But you don't have to settle for cold cuts. With a little bit of planning, a dinner of crispy fish sandwiches and oven fries comes together quickly. Serve with a side of coleslaw for a well-balanced, low calorie meal.

2. Italian Chicken Parmesan

Your family won't believe this dish took only 30 minutes to prepare! Make the preparations for the asparagus, and then while you are preparing the chicken, boil some orzo pasta or couscous to serve alongside. This meal is elegant enough for company, yet easy enough for a simple meal around the table with your family.

3. Soup Supper

Soup makes a comforting meal. This hearty version of minestrone served with cornbread is filling, and full of low calorie vegetables. So, on this night, splurge a little on some low calorie milk chocolate chip pudding.

4. Spicy Cajun Tenderloin

Go cajun tonight, and spice it up with spiced pork tenderloin medallions and crispy cajun potato fries. Round out the meal with a side of apple glazed carrots, which will be a welcomed sweet change from the spicy pork and potatoes.

5. Pizza Night

Round out the week with a fun-filled pizza night. These mini treats are the simplest pizzas you will ever make. And the best part is, each person can easily individualize their pizza to their own liking by topping them however they wish. Serve with a spinach salad with nectarine and balsamic vinegar, and top off the meal with a refreshing raspberry and mango smoothie.
