The Vegetable Omelet is considered nutritious because it is
made of a variety of vegetables that vary in taste, color, and
texture; therefore the omelet is aesthetically nutritious. The meal
has yellows and greens, and the temperature is warm. The omelet
contains eggs and vegetables which contains food from two different
food groups. The meal if filling, so after you eat it you will not be
hungry. The omelet is properly portioned.
The Chicken Salad Sandwich is also a nutritious meal, similar to
the omelet, it varies in taste, color, and texture. Unlike the omelet,
the sandwich is to be eaten cold. The meal contains meats, dairy,
and grains. Chicken is a healthy meat because it does not contain a
lot of fat, the total fat of the sandwich is only 11 grams.
The Spinach and Quinoa Salad with Shrimp is a nutritious meal
as well. The salad is balanced with vegetables and meat. The meal
is also aesthetically pleasing because there are multiple colors,
flavors, and textures. The salad is a mixture of temperatures, the
salad itself should be eaten cold, but the shrimp is warm.
The meals I have planned should satisfy one’s taste buds as
well as pleasing their body in a nutritious way. All three meals are
