Roast Beef Dinner Power Up
Powering up this dinner is pretty easy because you’re still having 4 of the same foods. We’re powering it up by adding an easy to cook steamer bag of broccoli with cheese and a side of blackberries. We choose the mini cupcakes so you can still have dessert while others can enjoy more of them.
Here's a picture and list of ingredients used to create this Power Up meal.
- 5 oz roast beef
- ½ cup potatoes
- ½ cup carrots
- 1 cup broccoli with cheese
- 1 cup blackberries
- 1 mini cupcake
This meal total is now 513 calories and 15g of fiber. Now that’s a meal the whole family can enjoy without complaint.
We went from 5 grams of fiber to 15 grams of fiber in our Power Up meal. This dropped the calories from 903 to 513.
