Here is a sample one-day menu for Mr. Brown. His doctor just told him to cut down on added sugars in addition to increasing his fiber intake. He hopes to meet with a dietitian next week, but in the meantime needs some help making these changes. List five suggestions for Mr. Brown’s diet. Make sure to provide only changes that address the meal planning goals mentioned above. Tell him which food(s) you would have him omit and how you would replace these items. You may also change portion sizes. Highlight (yellow only, please) or bold the item you are changing. Then write the change next to that. You may make more than five changes, but if you do so, you will only receive full credit when all changes correctly match the assigned directions.
