After a long day of work, household chores and another day of emotionally draining news reports, it's no surprise you have little energy to spare when it comes to making dinner. But if you're trying to lose weight, or maintain a healthy weight while being stuck at home, that last meal of the day is key to avoiding late-night snacking and packing in all the nutrients your body needs.

So what's for dinner tonight? We took all the guesswork out of that question by consulting TODAY nutritionist, Joy Bauer. Her plan is the perfect guide: It contains delicious meals with the right balance of lean proteins, high-quality carbs and healthy fats to give you fast and effective results. Plus, each tasty option has plenty of nutrient-packed and fiber-filled produce, providing loads of vitamins and minerals to keep you feeling full and satisfied.
