Hi, I am looking for some quick, simple and healthy meal ideas. I am having ankle arthroscopy surgery on Tuesday and I won't be able to bear weight on my right ankle for four to six weeks, so I would greatly appreciate some easy, quick and healthy meal ideas.
I will be having a caregiver over to help me with some things so I am hoping that they can prepare a few easy meals, then I will put some leftovers in the fridge and freezer.
A few ideas that I have which are pretty basic are:
Hot or cold cereal for breakfast maybe I'll have some orange juice, I like Trop 50, a reduced calorie OJ
Yogurt such as Dannon lite and fit or Yoplait lite with fruit for breakfast
For lunch maybe some healthy cold cuts with a tortilla and a condiment
Healthy soup for lunch or dinner
For dinner, maybe whole wheat pasta with marinara sauce
Or instead for dinner, a frozen entree such as Lean Cuisine
For healthy snacks, maybe Orville Redenbacher's Smart Pop microwave popcorn
Raw carrots with hummus
Part skim mozzarella string cheese
Pretzels, low fat chips or veggie chips
This is a start but I would greatly appreciate some suggestions, advice and ideas.
