First…

Order your Pritikin 7-Meal Package for your 7 dinners (or 14-Meal Package if you want both lunches and dinners).

Third…

Print out the Pritikin 7-Day Meal Plan below and pin it to your refrigerator. Even if you’ve never considered yourself a cook, you can do this!

With Pritikin’s new 7-Day Meal Plan, get healthy. Get thin. And get out of the kitchen in no time.

Day One | Pritikin Meal Plan

Breakfast

Oatmeal with Fresh Berries and Nonfat Milk or Soymilk

Oatmeal is the breakfast with benefits. A fragrant, steamy bowl just about every day can help lower bad cholesterol, improve blood sugar, lose weight, and even relieve constipation. Wow!

Coffee or Tea, if desired

If you’d like, add a little nonfat milk or soymilk and/or a packet of sugar substitute. Proven-to-be-safe choices are sucralose (Splenda®) and stevia (many brands are available, such as Truvia® and SweetLeaf®).

Mid-Morning Snack

(if you’re hungry)

Big, Crisp Apple

Fresh fruit every day helps your heart, a large, 500,000-person study recently found. Those who ate fresh fruit every day had about one-third reduced risk of dying from a heart attack compared to those who rarely or never ate fruit.

Lunch

Salmon Sandwich

Get a great dose of heart-healthy omega 3s by combining salmon (canned, low-sodium) with cucumber, onion, and fresh dill.  Spread on 100% whole-wheat bread. A good low-sodium bread choice is Food For Life®.

Salad in a Second

At the market, pick up bags of pre-washed, pre-cut salad greens and veggies. Just pour the whole bag into a big bowl and toss with a healthy, spunky dressing, such as Pritikin Outrageous Asian Dressing.

Afternoon Snack

(if you’re hungry)

Sugar Snap Peas - 1 or 2 cups

Go for peas and beans whenever you can!  They’re filling, nutrient rich, low in calorie density, and packed with fiber. The longest-living populations all over the world have one key dietary factor in common: they all eat beans, lots of them. Adzuki beans. Black beans. Chick peas. Pinto beans. All beans and peas are great choices.

If you’d like, fire up your sugar snap peas by dipping them in a bit of wasabi (Japanese horseradish).

Dinner

Vegetable Soy Lasagna

Ahhh, here’s comfort food! Velvety, rich lasagna but without the mega-amounts of heart-stopping saturated fat usually crammed into lasagna. This dish, delivered to you from Pritikin’s new 7-Meal Package of frozen entrees, needs just a few minutes in the microwave, and voila! Dinner’s on the table! It also includes a side of assorted steamed vegetables.

Chopped Veggies with Pritikin Thousand Island Dressing

Throw in just about any veggies already in the crisper, especially the crunchy ones. Here’s a combination that guests at the Pritikin Longevity Center love: cauliflower florets, broccoli florets, carrots, red onion, radishes, cucumber, and romaine lettuce. In a large bowl, chop up all your veggies into bite-size pieces using a knife or salad chopper.

To make Pritikin Thousand Island Dressing, simply blend ¾ cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt, ½ cup fat-free sour cream, ½ teaspoon dry oregano, ½ teaspoon garlic powder, and ¾ cup low-sugar, low-sodium ketchup (good choices include Heinz® No Salt-Added-Ketchup and Hunt’s® No-Salt-Added Ketchup). Refrigerate leftovers.

Dessert

(if you’re hungry)

Frozen Fruit Bar

Need a little sweet and tang after dinner? A frozen fruit bar can hit the spot. Tasty, healthy choices include Breyer’s® Pure Fruit and Whole Fruit® 50 Calories.

Day Two | Pritikin Meal Plan

Breakfast

Half a Honeydew Melon with 1 Cup of Vanilla Greek Yogurt (Fat-free, No-Sugar Added)

Whole-Wheat English Muffin Spread with Applesauce (no-sugar-added) (a good muffin choice is Food for Life®)

Afraid this big-sized breakfast is big on calories?  Not so!  It tallies up fewer calories than a typical coffeehouse muffin. And let’s don’t even get started on what’s in those muffins. Essentially, a whole lot of sugar, white flour, and fat.

Coffee or Tea, if desired

If you’d like, add a little nonfat milk or soymilk and/or a packet of sugar substitute. Proven-to-be-safe choices are sucralose (Splenda) and stevia (many brands are available, such as Truvia and SweetLeaf).

Mid-Morning Snack

(if you’re hungry)

Bag of Baby Carrots with Hummus

If you’d like, add a little nonfat milk or soymilk and/or a packet of sugar substitute. Proven-to-be-safe choices are sucralose (Splenda) and stevia (many brands are available, such as Truvia and SweetLeaf).

Lunch

Baked Potato Topped with NonFat Greek Yogurt and Chives

Don’t believe fad diets that say potatoes are a no-no food. No way! Potatoes are actually very good for you, especially if you’re trying to lose weight. Ounce for ounce, potatoes are one of the most filling and low-calorie foods. Filling is good. The fuller we are, the less likely we’re tempted by waistline-busting foods like potato chips.

2 Cups Mixed Greens with 1 Cup of Other Veggies, Such as Tomatoes and Cucumbers

Dress it with really good aged balsamic vinegar and 1 teaspoon olive oil. The Pritikin Program keeps oil to a minimum because no oil, even so-called “good” ones, should ever be considered a weight-loss food. Coating your salad with oil can tally up as many calories as two cheeseburgers. Ouch!

Afternoon Snack

(if you’re hungry)

Big Handful of Grapes

Keep a big bowl full of fresh fruit on your kitchen counter. Enjoy that fruit throughout the day! Research has found that people who have bowls of fruit on their kitchen counters weigh significantly less than people who do not.

Dinner

Mahi Mahi with Green Chiles and Tomatoes

Here’s another gourmet delight from Pritikin’s 7-Meal Package of frozen entrees! Who said preparing fish is difficult and time-consuming? Just pop this dinner in the microwave, then sit down to tender, juicy mahi mahi topped with a deliciously piquant sauce of green chilis and tomatoes. Also included in this dish is brown rice and a side of veggies.

Roasted Vegetables with Pritikin Heavenly Horseradish Balsamic Salad Dressing

You can do this! Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, throw in 2 cups of broccoli and cauliflower florets, a sliced red bell pepper and yellow bell pepper, a tablespoon of minced garlic, and a teaspoon of dried oregano. Toss with ¼ cup of Pritikin Heavenly Horseradish Balsamic Salad Dressing. Pour your veggies into a large, lightly oil-sprayed baking tray. Roast in oven till just turning crispy, about 8 minutes.

Refrigerate leftovers for a “lavash lunch” tomorrow.  

Dessert

(if you’re hungry)

Ice Cream, Fat-Free & Sugar-Free

Good choices are Breyer’s Fat-Free and Edy’s Fat-Free. “But keep in mind that ice creams – even healthier varieties – are dense with calories. Do your best to stick to the half-cup serving size,” advises Kimberly Gomer, MS, RD, Director of Nutrition at the Pritikin Longevity Center.

Day Three | Pritikin Meal Plan

Breakfast

Oatmeal with NonFat Milk or Soy Milk & Apple Pie Seasoning

A good seasoning choice is McCormick® Apple Pie Spice. Need more sweetening? Sprinkle in a packet of Splenda or stevia.

Navel Orange

It’s always better to eat rather than drink your fruit, especially if you’re trying to lose weight. That’s because calories from drinks – any kind of drink, from fruit juices to soda pop – do not curb your appetite as well as solid foods. Enjoy whole fruit. And watch that bathroom scale plummet.

Coffee or Tea, if desired

If you’d like, add a little nonfat milk or soymilk and/or a packet of sugar substitute. Proven-to-be-safe choices are sucralose (Splenda) and stevia (many brands are available, such as Truvia and SweetLeaf).

Mid-Morning Snack

(if you’re hungry)

Corn on the Cob

Microwave, husk and all, for 3 to 5 minutes. Or microwave a husked ear of corn by wetting a paper towel and wringing it out. Wrap the ear in the moist towel and cook for 3 to 5 minutes.

Lunch

Roasted Veggies Wrapped in Lavash Bread

Use the roasted vegetables saved from last night’s dinner for today’s lunch. What a tasty timesaver! Simply spread out a 100% whole-wheat slice of lavash. Lavash is a Middle Eastern flatbread sold in many markets nationwide. Top with your veggies and roll into a wrap.

Cantaloupe Salad with Lime, Mint, and Ginger

So refreshing! Cut half a cantaloupe into 1-inch cubes. (Save the other half for breakfast tomorrow.) Place your cubes in a bowl with 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, 2 tablespoons freshly chopped mint, 1 tablespoon Splenda, and 2 teaspoons of freshly grated ginger. Toss to blend.

Afternoon Snack

(if you’re hungry)

A Cup of Edamame

Edamame are young soybeans, still in their pods. They’re chewy, buttery, and satisfying – a wonderfully healthy alternative to a bag of chips. If you’d like, sprinkle them with lemon pepper. You’ll find edamame in the frozen and/or refrigerated section of most markets.

Dinner

Mushroom and Spinach Pasta

From Pritikin’s 7-Meal Package of frozen entrees you’ll enjoy Mushroom and Spinach Pasta seasoned with Italian-inspired palate pleasers like basil, garlic, a dash of olive oil, and tomatoes. Ladled next to your pasta is a marvelous array of vegetables: broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, zucchini, and yellow squash.

Easy-Peasy Bean Salad

Here’s the perfect – and perfectly easy way – to round out dinner. Open a can of butter beans (no salt added) and toss with chopped celery, chopped green onions, and a splash of Pritikin’s Tuscan Sunshine Italian Salad Dressing.

Dessert

(if you’re hungry)

Shaved Ice with Berries and Yogurt

A frozen treat! Pour about ¾ cup of fat-free Greek yogurt into a dessert bowl. Swirl in a packet of Splenda or stevia. Add a big handful of berries, like raspberries or blueberries. Pulse 6 or 7 ice cubes in a food processor till flaky (but not mushy), and sprinkle over your dessert. Cold, crunchy, and good!

Day Four | Pritikin Meal Plan

Breakfast

No-Fuss Egg Whites and Veggies

This is so simple that you don’t even need to dirty a frying pan. Lightly spray the inside of a microwaveable bowl with oil spray like Pam®. Scramble your egg whites in the bowl. Add veggies, black pepper, and your favorite no-salt seasoning blend. Nuke, covered, for about 1 to 2 minutes, depending on the heat of your microwave. 

Chunks of Cantaloupe Topped with Cottage Cheese (Fat-Free, Low Sodium)

A good brand choice for fat-free, low-sodium cottage cheese is Friendship. There are also store brands.

Coffee or Tea, if desired

If you’d like, add a little nonfat milk or soymilk and/or a packet of sugar substitute. Proven-to-be-safe choices are sucralose (Splenda) and stevia (many brands are available, such as Truvia and SweetLeaf).

Mid-Morning Snack

(if you’re hungry)

Pear

Pears are a delicious source of fiber and antioxidants.

Lunch

Sweet Potato with Dijon Mustard (Low-Sodium)

No time to bake a sweet potato? No worries! Microwave it. Simply pierce the skin 5 or 6 times. Then nuke for about 6 minutes, depending on the size of your sweet potato, rotating halfway through. It’s cooked when the skin puffs to a crisp finish and is soft to the touch. The flesh should be sweet and pillowy.

Sizzling Greens

Pour a 10-ounce bag of assorted, pre-washed leafy greens like chard, spinach, kale, and collards in a hot wok sizzling with 1 teaspoon of peanut oil, 1 tablespoon white wine, and minced garlic. Stir till wilted.

You’re cooking with the nutritional big boys when you’re cooking with leafy greens. They deliver amazing benefits, like stronger bones and lower risk of diabetes, heart attacks, and strokes. Yes, a greener diet can mean a much healthier you.

Afternoon Snack

(if you’re hungry)

Saffron Aïoli (Dip) with Celery Sticks

Such amazing flavor and color! Pump up fat-free, plain Greek yogurt with lemon, a dash of garlic powder, and a few saffron threads that you’ve crushed by rubbing between your fingers. Dive right in with celery sticks.

Dinner

Curry Chicken

Here’s a top 10 favorite among guests at the famed Pritikin Longevity Center in Miami. It’s all yours, delivered straight to you in Pritikin’s 7-Meal Package. This entree is bursting with Caribbean-inspired flavor! Its medley of scrumptious seasonings includes scallions, ginger, vine-ripened tomatoes, and cumin. You’ll also enjoy sides of brown rice and a delightful assortment of steamed veggies.

Beet and Mango Salad

This salad will have your taste buds singing! And it’s so easy because there’s no need to cook and peel beets anymore. Stores nationwide now carry shrink-wrapped bags of cooked beets, usually about 8 ounces. All you do is slice them, and they’re delish.

On a bed of mixed greens, place equal amounts of sliced red beets, sliced mangos, and sliced carrots, plus a handful of blueberries. Drizzle with Pritikin Tuscan Sunshine Italian Salad Dressing.

Dessert

(if you’re hungry)

Perfectly Pritikin "Ice Cream"

A counter-top appliance called Yonanas, sold online and at stores like Target®, transforms fruit into a frozen dessert that tastes like soft serve ice cream. All you do is freeze really ripe bananas, let them thaw just slightly, then feed them into a Yonanas and add any other frozen fruit.  “It’s perfectly Pritikin ice cream,” smiles Pritikin nutritionist Kimberly Gomer, MS, RD.

Day Five | Pritikin Meal Plan

Breakfast

Oatmeal with Nonfat Milk or Soymilk and Fresh or Frozen Berries

If you’re using frozen berries, always select no-sugar-added varieties. If you don’t need to lose weight, toss in a few chopped walnuts and raisins. (But don’t go crazy. Eating a lot of super-calorie-dense foods like nuts and dried fruit can very easily lead to weight gain.)

Coffee or Tea, if desired

If you’d like, add a little nonfat milk or soymilk and/or a packet of sugar substitute. Proven-to-be-safe choices are sucralose (Splenda) and stevia (many brands are available, such as Truvia and SweetLeaf).

Mid-Morning Snack

(if you’re hungry)

2 Big Slices of Watermelon

Lunch

Veggie Burger with Sliced Tomatoes and Lettuce

The last thing our hearts need is the artery-busting saturated fat in beef burgers. With veggie burgers, you get zero saturated fat. Good choices are Gardenburger® (Garden Vegan), available in many stores, and Engine 2® (at Whole Foods Markets). Use buns that are 100% whole grain, like Food For Life®.

Cayenne Cucumber Salad

Mix 2 cups sliced cucumbers with fresh lemon juice, paprika, and cayenne pepper to taste. Who knew cucumbers could taste so good!

Afternoon Snack

(if you’re hungry)

2 Cups Air-Popped Popcorn

Pop up your own, or look for fat-free, no-salt-added varieties, like Bearito’s®, Cache River® Popcorn Rice, Garden of Eatin®, or Orville Redenbacher’s® Original.

Dinner

Quinoa and White Bean Paella

From Pritikin’s 7-Meal Package, here’s heart-healthy Spanish paella with mouthwatering flavor! Simmered in chardonnay, paprika, tomatoes, thyme, red bell pepper, and other delicious ingredients, this paella will have you tangoing! Accompanying your paella is a side dish of multi-colored vegetables.

Big Caesar Salad

Who says healthy eating is “blah”? 

To make this zesty dressing, blend the following ingredients in a food processor or blender till smooth and creamy: 1 box light silken tofu, ¼ cup lemon juice, ¾ tablespoon Angostura® Worcestershire Sauce, 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard (no salt added), 2 cups white balsamic vinegar, 2 tablespoons minced garlic, 1 tablespoon apple juice concentrate (thawed), and 2 ounces water. 

Dessert

(if you’re hungry)

Strawberries with Marsala

Strawberries topped with a dash of Marsala wine or balsamic glaze. 

Day Six | Pritikin Meal Plan

Breakfast

Shredded Wheat with Berries and Sliced Bananas, and Nonfat Milk or Soymilk

Always read labels. For this breakfast, be sure to select shredded wheat with no added sugar or salt. Also, if weight loss is your goal, tread carefully. Most of the time, you’ll want to choose hot cereals over cold, dried cereals. That’s because dried cereals are dense with calories. Per bite, they pack in four to five times more calories than hot cereals like oatmeal.

Coffee or Tea, if desired

If you’d like, add a little nonfat milk or soymilk and/or a packet of sugar substitute. Proven-to-be-safe choices are sucralose (Splenda) and stevia (many brands are available, such as Truvia and SweetLeaf).

Mid-Morning Snack

(if you’re hungry)

Jicama Sticks with Fresh Salsa

Jicama may be the most exciting vegetable you’re not eating. Try it! Jicamas are wonderfully juicy and sweet (they taste like a savory apple), and they have a distinct crunch. Peel their skin with a knife, not a peeler. Then slice into thick, French fry-style sticks.

Fresh salsa, such as pico de gallo, is in the refrigerated sections of markets. Select lower-sodium varieties.

Lunch

Simple, Sensational Chili

In a large nonstick skillet, sauté a large, chopped onion and 4 minced garlics till softened. Stir in 1½ tablespoons chili powder, ¾ teaspoon ground cumin, and ½ teaspoon dried oregano. Add a 4-ounce can of diced green chilis and two 16-ounce cans of diced tomatoes (low-sodium). Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Add 1 can of pinto beans (low-sodium), 1 can of white beans (low-sodium), and a bag of frozen roasted corn. Simmer another 15 minutes. Season with a dash or two of Tabasco. Yum!

Ladle leftovers into single-serving containers and freeze for future sensational lunches.

Afternoon Snack

(if you’re hungry)

Fat-Free Vanilla Yogurt (No Sugar Added) Topped with Sliced Peaches and Chopped Walnuts

If you’re trying to lose weight, leave off the walnuts. Nuts may be a good fat for your heart, but because they’re so incredibly dense with calories, they’re never good for your waistline.

Dinner

Poblano Salmon

You’ll think you’re at a five-star restaurant with this entrée from Pritikin’s 7-Meal Package!

Poblanos are rich “meaty” chilis with just a hint of fire. They’re in a sauce atop lusciously roasted salmon. Also in this entrée is a wild rice blend and a vegetable medley.

Carrot and Pineapple Salad

So sweet and flavorful you’ll think you’re eating dessert! Into a large bowl throw 1 cup of diced, fresh pineapple (or canned, no sugar added), 2 shredded carrots, juice of 2 limes, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil, 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint, 1 teaspoon snipped chives, and freshly ground black pepper. Let sit for 10 minutes. Chill and serve cold. 

Dessert

(if you’re hungry)

Seasonal Fruit

Enjoy your favorite season-fresh fruit. Spare no expense! In summer, go for those big gorgeous cherries and fragrant nectarines. Or try something new. How about papaya? Dragon fruit? Passion fruit? This is eating!

Day Seven | Pritikin Meal Plan

Breakfast

Tropical Hot Cereal with Nonfat Milk or Soymilk

Hot cereal, such as oatmeal, barley, or cracked wheat, topped with sliced pineapple and mango, and 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts. 

1 Cup Fresh Blueberries

Coffee or Tea, if desired

If you’d like, add a little nonfat milk or soymilk and/or a packet of sugar substitute. Proven-to-be-safe choices are sucralose (Splenda) and stevia (many brands are available, such as Truvia and SweetLeaf).

Mid-Morning Snack

(if you’re hungry)

Soft Veggie Taco

In the microwave, warm a corn tortilla between two slightly moistened paper towels, about 30 seconds. Then top with pinto beans (from a can of no-salt-added beans) lettuce, diced onions, and a low-sodium salsa.

Lunch

Peanut Butter Sandwich

You heard us right! Just steer clear of regular peanut butter, especially if you want to lose weight. Just 2 level tablespoons of regular peanut butter tally up nearly 200 calories. Instead, use defatted – and low-sodium – varieties. Jif’s® and Crazy Richard’s® are two good choices.

Smear your peanut butter on a slice of 100% whole-wheat toast (low sodium) topped with sliced banana.

Clean-Out-The-Refrigerator Soup

Got onions? Celery? Carrots? Broccoli? Swiss chard? That’s right, whatever you’ve got, chop up and toss into a nonstick pot laced with a bit of oil spray. Sauté your veggies till wilted. Add a cup or two of chicken broth (no salt added) and season with a nice salt-free blend of herbs, such as Italian seasoning (many great brands are available), or something more exotic, like Penzeys® Spices Bangkok Blend.

Afternoon Snack

(if you’re hungry)

Two Tangerines

Dinner

Ancient Grains and Squash

Love the nutty, earthy flavors of ancient grains? You’ll love this entrée from Pritikin’s 7-Meal Package. It’s an enticing blend of red quinoa, millet seed, farro, wheat berries, and lentils cooked in a lemon vinaigrette and seasoned with cumin, cayenne, and cinnamon. Your grains are topped with roasted butternut squash. On the side are lovely, colorful carrots, zucchini, yellow squash, broccoli, and cauliflower.

Salad of Baby Spinach, Egg Whites, and Sauteed Mushrooms

In a wok heated up with a splash of white wine, sauté a pint of pre-cut, pre-washed mushrooms till softened. Add your mushrooms to a big helping of baby spinach and hard-boiled egg whites. Toss with Pritikin Tangy Mustard Salad Dressing.

Dessert

(if you’re hungry)

Chocolate Frozen Yogurt Topped with Fresh Raspberries

Select fat-free, sugar-free varieties of frozen yogurt.

Is a frozen entrée that says it’s healthy truly healthy?

A few are. But many are not. 

Many are healthy in one area of nutrition, for example, their calorie count may be low. 

But in other areas their numbers can be alarmingly high. The sodium that many so-called “healthy” meals contain is often more sodium than we should have for the entire day. 

Another trend of late is vegetarian or “plant-based” frozen meals. But often, these “healthy, high-fiber” meals are also dangerously high in saturated fats, like coconut oil, that clog arteries.

That’s why it’s so important to read food labels, and to understand that to be truly healthy, a frozen entrée – or any food for that matter – must be healthy in all areas of nutrition.

We invite you to read Pritikin’s food labels, but at the same time we can also assure you that you really don’t have to. That’s because Pritikin’s foods meet all parameters for healthy eating.

Pritikin frozen entrées are naturally rich in fiber, and naturally very low in salt, sugar, refined carbs, and harmful fats. Also, they’re low in calorie density, which means they’re perfect for helping you shed weight. 

Finally, the many whole foods that make up Pritikin’s frozen entrées are nutritional powerhouses. They’re full of vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and other beneficial substances that promote good health and well-being.

Being healthy comes from eating truly healthy food. 

Pritikin frozen entrées are truly healthy food.
