500-Calorie Meat Menus
When you hear "diet," juicy steak probably doesn't come to mind. But if you love meat, keep on eating it. Just make sure you choose lean cuts of steak with a relatively small amount of marbling (fat), such as filet mignon, sirloin, strip steak, and flank steak. Ground meat is easy to decipher, just check the label for the "percentage lean" and try to stick with 90%-lean or leaner. Browse through these recipes to choose your main course, then pick from the suggested side dishes, desserts or drinks to round out your 500-calorie meal.
